Couldn't fault the house and would recommend it

We went with 7 adults, 1 child and 1 dog and found the property was easily large enough.

Beautiful house, lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for one week May 2017. Five adults and two small dogs. The house has everything you need a real home from home. Set in beautiful grounds with stunning views. We enjoyed lovely weather for our week so was able to make use of the BBQ in the evening. We also appreciated the games room,table tennis was played everyday!! Would not hesitate to book this again. Thankyou Mark

Wonderfull situated comfortable luxury house

  • 4 of 5

With 10 people in the house it is good to have 4 bathrooms. The bedrooms are very spacious with comfortable beds and 3 out of 5 have a sitting corner as well. The views from the conservatory/diningroom are breathtaking.

The landscape invites you for more then one walkingtrip. Inverness and Fort William are within one hour drive if you are in need of a city. Just enjoy!

Perfect gathering place

  • 5 of 5

The property is wonderfully situated and perfect for a larger family gathering. It was the perfect place for my 50th birthday celebrations. The facilities are excellent and everything works - apart from the blunt knives (the only incredibly minor gripe). It's clean and well stocked with everything you need. The owner is very pleasant and answers emails promptly and courteously. It will certainly be top of my list next time I'm organising a family gathering.
