About Angela Williams
Sorry we don't have a photo! We bought the property after a move 'south' from Knoydart. We live here with our 2 children, our springer spaniel Corrie and 2 cats. We have owned a self catering property for many years but enjoy being on hand to look after it. We know that renting a place next door to the owners can be a concern - but rest assured, we are there if you need us but the chances are you won't see us again after we have met you! Angela is a development manager with the Knoydart Foundation, a community land owner. Mark is a marine biologist and also runs his own RYA school - so if you fancy a power boat course, get in touch!
Angela Williams purchased this House in 2014
Why Angela Williams chose Highland
We want you to have a great holiday and have enjoyed making the Tower as homely as possible and somewhere we would enjoy going on holiday. We love the upside down nature of the property - bedroom and bathroom down stairs with a spiral staircase leading you up into the living room. From here you can step out onto the balcony to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining, overlooking the local woodlands and Loch Sunart beyond.
What makes this House unique
We love going on self catering holidays- but also know the risk of renting a property and being disappointed. We have tried to furnish the property so all you need to bring is your food ( and maybe a bottle of wine!). Everything else is provided, from dishwasher tablets to hot water bottles! We can even supply dog bowls and dog towels. We want you to have a relaxing holiday so just ask if you want to check on any detail. We look forward to meeting you.
Happy New Year
Enjoyed a lovely stay in the Tower for New Year. The house is very nice, warm and well equipped to cover your every need. It is situated in a great location perfect for exploring the beauty of Ardnamurchan.
Thank you you will be sure to be back.
So glad you had a good weekend and enjoyed your stay - I hope we get chance to welcome you back. Glad you eventually made it home!
We are well travelled in UK, Europe and worldwide but the tower is top of our favourites. That’s for quality, location and hospitality. Thankyou
Oh wow, what a wonderful review, thank you. Really pleased you had a good few days to enjoy all the area has to offer. Hope we get chance to welcome you back.
Couldn't have been better, we just loved it
Ang and Mark are wonderful hosts, welcoming, friendly and informative.- and unexpectedly generous with the lovely treat of home made cake on arrival, The place is just perfect for 2, very special, magical, peaceful and lovely. Our 2 dogs loved it too, and especially the lovely woodland walk nearby. If we ever stay in the area again, this will be the place! The only thing I hated was dealing through HomeAway, it is the most dreadful system I've ever encountered, and I intend never to make that error again.
Oh thank you so much for the lovely review, it was great having you to stay ( by the way, we never found the dog food bag!!) and hope you can make it back again. I understand your issues with regard to the booking process and pleased you got through them to come and stay.
Fantastic cottage with everything you need to have a great holiday
Fantastic location to explore the magnificent area.
The cottage was clean and cozy and the owners extremely friendly and helpful
Lots of information in the cottage about things to do in the local area.
Local shop well stocked and the local hotel good food and beer.
Thanks for the lovely comments and glad you enjoyed your week and got chance to explore.
Excellent place to stay to explore Ardnamuchan
We were lucky enough to enjoy fantastic weather all week. Leave plenty of time to explore the fantastic scenery as road travel can be slow on the narrow roads. Best to do some research in midges repellent as the.stuff I had was not effective! Excellent place to stay and as described. Thanks.
So glad you had a good week- am sure the amazing weather helped! Glad everything was as expected. Sorry you were on the receiving end of the annual midge return, they have only just arrived( late this year). General recommendation is Smidge but it doesn't work for everyone.
Very comfortable and well equipped. The hosts were extremely helpful and provided lots of useful information prior to our arrival including very good directions. There was lots of information in the property regarding walks, guide books and plenty of maps. The cake that Angela made was delicious! All in all an excellent stay and would thoroughly recommend it.
Thank you for your lovely review, it's really appreciated. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and glad you got some sunshine! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.
