Very comfortable cottage in a great location
The cottage has stunning views out across the Kyle and the facilities are to a very good standard.
First class accommodation with an outstanding outlook
An excellent, comfortable cottage looking out on a landscape of stunning natural beauty. We are already thinking about our next visit ! Thank you Roz.
Luxury cosy cottage in a stunning location
We stayed at Shore Cottage for four days over Christmas, with my parents. The weather was wild, but that didn't matter in the slightest - the view was constantly stunning, the cottage is fantastically well appointed and equipped and lovely and warm and comfortable. We saw otters less than 50 metres from the window. It was a perfect place to spend our Christmas - and my parents have already re-booked for the spring!
Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased the cottage met all of your requirements even if the weather did not!
We certainly look forward to your return in the Spring when we do have some wonderful weather.
Beautiful in stunning location
Fantastic property in beautiful surroundings
This cottage is perfect! It has well designed, modern, good quality fixtures and fittings. The cottage has an excellent lay out and is warm and comfortable, with magnificent views. It is well situated for walks straight from the cottage. There are beautiful beaches in the area and interesting coastal and hill walks.
On our way home but just had to write this review.......What a cottage......What a location.........words fail me!
The cottage is simply the best! Fully equipped with everything you could need, modern and spotlessly clean.
Superb location meant that even with a mixed bag of weather it didn't stop us from getting out and about walking and watching the wildlife.
Booking is easy and Roz is on hand for any assistance or local advice and information.
It will be a long while until we will stop talking about and remembering this holiday.
Highlight of our holiday was our visit to Handa Island, well worth the 25 mins to get to the ferry and then seeing the Puffins was amazing.
We are so glad you both enjoyed your stay in this wonderful corner of the UK; haste ye back!
