Stunning property... Stunning views :D

5 of 5
A fantastic weeks getaway, the views were exceptional and was bliss waking up to gorgeous weather and sitting outside the bedroom patio doors with a morning cup of tea. Cottage has everything to offer that you could possibly need. Was amazing watching the wildlife day in day out on the garden, my children loved the space with their cameras capturing memories. We don't drive so was reliant and buses which would pick up and drop off on the bend up from the cottage which was brilliant. Also lovely walks to neighbouring villages :D Only thing I could possibly have a little moan about which is me being very picky.... I would love the patio doors to be extended to the other side of the cottage so I could sit and take in the views from the left and right of the garden.... Haha that's me being picky though;) Overall mine and my families holiday was amazing and would definitely book again in the future:D P.s. the rasberries and strawberries were a lovely welcome gift and went with my bottle of cava deliciously:D thankyou again x

Our magical holiday home!

5 of 5
We arrived early evening to find a serene hideaway - a lovely lodge overlooking a lochan with swans and cygnets, ducks and ducklings, swallows, and a herd of young deer on the hillside. The lodge was so spacious, with wonderful solid and comfortable furniture. The 3 bedrooms are in separate areas (ideal with kids!). The large, light seating area had doors to a very safe balcony, and the big bean bag and larger floor cushion left lots of settee space (ideal for big people). Lovely to arrive and find a few cooking supplies plus the necessities for the first evening - milk, bread, and a lovely cake, etc! Also useful - extra cupboard space. Our 5 and 8 yr olds enjoyed Kenmore's playpark, and the Crannog Centre; the play area next to the Country Store (useful). They also loved - the walk up Acharn to the cave, waterfall and hill climb above (play area near car park), and the quieter roads beyond Bridge of Balgie (good tea shop!) for cycling and dam building. The big people enjoyed a wet-suited swim in Loch Tay at Kenmore. A very big thank you to our host and hostess. WE will be back!
