Les propriétaires ont été très accueillants et discrets, la maison était vraiment spacieuse, agréable, fonctionnelle et très propre, et bien équipée (juste quelques grosses casseroles et grands bols à prévoir en plus). La location était bien située, à 30 minutes d'Inverness, et proche de la côte Ouest (splendide), du parc des Cairngorms et de la route du Whisky. Nous recommandons cette location, vous ne regretterez pas votre choix.

The house has all the amenities including good wifi but the TV stations are a bit limited, presumably because of the signal in such a remote are. The house is a bit tired looking but the important things are in place like nice bathrooms and good linen. Definitely recommended.
