Cottage in an amazing setting for a fair price

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the stay in the cottage a lot.The location is great as the sea is right by your doorstep and a beautiful peninsula closeby for short walks. Nonetheless it´s a bit secluded but still close enough to local services like the village shop or gas station. The cottage also has a beautiful small garden with all sorts of flowers. When the weather permits there are garden chairs and a table, for example, to enjoy breakfast out in the garden.

Generally, the Lochcarron area is an ideal springboard for daytrips to Skye, Loch Torridon and other beautiful spots. This was a main factor for us in choosing Lochcarron.

The interior of the cottage preserves the charme of the real cottages. Still it has all necessary amenities. Apart from fridge, microwave, oven, freezer we found the laundry machine along with the tumble dryer very handy (this is shared with the other cottage).

What we were not completely satisfied with (hence 4 instead of 5 stars) was the lack of a shower (bathtub instead) and the water heating system that seemed a bit weak to me.

The landlord/-lady was very helpful and friendly.

Overall I can recommend this cottage as it is at a great location, has good amenities and a fair price.

Not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

Initial thought was gosh, although the photographs are a true representation, what they can't show is the atmosphere and feeling that you are walking into history. Mairi seems absolutely proud of her heritage with the cottage and rightly so as it maintains original features which are to be enjoyed. On the plus side, the living room furniture and beds are very comfortable and a working real fire is gorgeous. The views are stunning. Down side, as a paying guest I would have hoped for a more workable kitchen. Many issues, in that it isn't really a kitchen, just a space with a (very old) cooker one end and a sink the other with cupboards between. Not sure thar would pass health and safety inspection! But I'm not an expert. I became accustomed to the rather musty smell which I suppose comes with an old property and in the end appreciated the quirkiness. I just wish I had known beforehand. A few tweaks here and there, like a shower, would help. Also be aware, no shaver/electric toothbrush point. No big issue but handy to know. Immaculately clean, and a lovely host in Mairi who came during the week to make sure all was ok. I do hope she takes this as a help for other visitors rather than a criticism personally.

Owner's Response: The kitchen is Galley style but well equipped and functional.The free standing cooker is well used-not old. There is also a fridge,microwave and larder as well as cupboards and sink. This is a Cottage built in the 1850s with a lot of original features but some modern touches. Please only book if you want a Cottage with character & an authentic Highland experience which is reasonably priced.

Cosy cottage with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a very enjoyable week in cottage 1: the view from the bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor is astonishing (and changes all the time according to the weather). The bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. The only slight draw-back is that the bathtub is not ideal to have a shower. The owner is very helpful, she put the heating on for us before we arrived, which was a nice surprise as it was quite chilly outside (in July!).

The garden is beautiful, and the area very, very quiet!

We shall recommend this cottage to our friends.

perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage on a perfect location. Beautifully and comfortably furnished, much room and all of the four rooms have a nice place to sit with a view over the lake. We also enjoyed the lovely garden. Many possibilities for walking and cycling in the area and good shops and cafes nearby.
