loved it every time

5 of 5
As this was the second time in the cottage, it is still one of the best holiday homes we ever had been. This time it was with our family from India and they loved the cottage, the view and everything to appreciate the Scottish highlands. Would recommend this to everyone who is looking to book a holiday in highlands. The cottage has got everything and feels like my second home as it is so comfortable and homely. Everything needed is provided with snacks and basic things like milk ,bread, butter etc in case anybody forgets to get in a hurry. As always would like to come back and stay here and would recommend it to everyone as well.

A fantastic location

5 of 5
Noreen was very accommodating. She kindly put many food items in the house. The 3 bedrooms are large and two have a single and double bed which is unusual. We will definitely stay again.
