Perfect cottage in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cottage based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. The cottage is lovely with everything you will need. Beds are so comfortable and the bathroom is perfect with a wonderful soaking tub and excellent shower. We had wanted a peaceful and relaxing first visit to the Highlands and were not disappointed, we did venture forth to explore, including driving to Skye but we also enjoyed a couple of days at “home” just enjoying the quiet and solitude. The cottage setting is breathtaking and the sense of peace with only the sound of the wind and birdsong is amazing. We hope to return again!

Beautiful Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Mor Carraig the last week of June. The house was just as described and looked in the pictures. After making your way up a single track road, the house was very easy to find using Paul's detailed directions. The key box was handy and we had no problems getting in to the house. There were ample instructions available for how to manage the heat, fireplace, etc. It's about a 30 min drive to Inverness.

There are two bedrooms upstairs with the family bathroom. A third bedroom is downstairs with two twin beds. There's an additional toilet/shower facility downstairs. Attached to the kitchen is a laundry room, where the full size refrigerator is also located. In addition to the washer and dryer, there's also a wonderful drying rack that can be lowered from the ceiling. We made use of all of it and everything worked perfectly. The additional toilet/shower is attached to the laundry room. There is no sink. But there is a sink in the laundry room. The laundry room also has ample space for storing toiletries. We were three women and one man so our guy took the downstairs smaller shower room for his own while we shared the family bathroom upstairs.

All three bedrooms were large with plenty of room for two adults to share. There were wardrobes with hangers available to hang your clothes. The beds were comfortable. The family bathroom was large with plenty of room to store toiletries for all three ladies. We didn't use the nice soaker tub, but the shower was a nice size.

We used the kitchen for breakfast every morning and almost all evenings for dinner. The kitchen is well stocked with all that is needed for cooking. The stove/oven was easy to use. You will want to eat dinner here each night. It's a peaceful location. It was fun to watch how the landscape seemed to change hour to hour depending on the weather or cloud coverage.

Two reasons for only 4 stars - First, the wifi is very spotty. We could only have one person on at a time, and even then, it was only after we restarted the router and would last for about 30 minutes. The internet problem is typical in the Abriachan area. So there's not much that can be done. Secondly, there was a leak in the kitchen during a rainstorm. We put out buckets and called Gren, the manager. This is something they are aware of and are just waiting on roofers, so should be fixed soon.

Overall, I would go back tomorrow if I could...and stay a month. I highly recommend Mor Carraig.

The highlands have so much to offer all ages and Abriachan is the perfect location to enjoy the various activities. The Great Glen Way and Abriachan Forrest Trails are in the immediate vicinity providing great walking, running and mountain biking. Loch Laide and Loch an Cullin are close by and together with the River Ness opportunities for salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing are boundless. Scotland is the home of Golf and players of all standards and budgets will be treated to some of the best championship golf courses in the country, enjoying some of the most remote and scenically beautiful courses to be found anywhere; all within a 30 min drive of Mor Carraig. Families with children should take advantage of the many activities and attractions available in Inverness, including: swimming, bowling, leisure centres, cinemas, theatres, sightseeing and Dolphin watching on the Moray Firth. Drumnadrochit has the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre and Urquhart Castle as well as horse riding. And most importantly, a boat trip down Loch Ness where you may just get a glimpse of the elusive Loch Ness Monster, known to her friends as 'Nessie'. Day trips to enjoy - Aviemore, Fort Augusta, Fort William, Applecross, Dornoch, Nairn Beach and the Isle of Skye.
