Delighted to find an immaculate and spotless cottage, well furnished and comfortable, lovely bathroom and kitchen with everything you would need. Stunning outlook over to Berneray. The visit was even more amazing due to the friendliness and helpfulness of the neighbour across the way. She had provided a tray of home cooking, themed around the Royal Wedding! Thank you so much Dolina for all your care. Would highly recommend Hollyburn to anyone who wants a perfect setting.
Overall an Excellent cottage!
We stayed here for one week in October 2016. The cottage itself was in excellent condition and superb throughout, very comfortable too and the shower was superb too. The views were just superb too especially from the dining room. However a few niggly things made us only give a 4 star rating.
The DVD player did not work so we had to buy one so we could watch DVD's.
The tin opener did not work so again we had to buy one in order to open tins. Plus the vegetable peeler was useless and blunt so again we had to buy our own.
Another complaint is that the lights in the kitchen and diner are so dull, 40w bulbs come on .............. this is a kitchen and you need to see!!!!!! It was especially dark around the cooker area and we had to actually use a torch in order to see the cooker controls.
Overall, we did enjoy our stay and would hope to return, but please pay attention to the things mentioned. Despite what another reviewer said there is off road parking immediately adjacent to the cottage and so parking our car was no problem!
