"We have had two most wonderful breaks at Coorie Cottage. Such a magical cottage. We stay in Scotland twice a year and out of all the many places we have stayed, this cottage is truly the best and holds a special place in our heart. The location is simply stunning and with wonderful views out over the loch. The journey up and over the hill is breathtaking. The cottage is cosy and beautifully warm. Nigel and Lou are the most thoughtful of hosts ensuring the cottage is spotlessly clean, gifting wonderful baked goods on arrival and always there to help and advise. Within hours of arriving, you chill....the clock stops and you just enjoy the location and relax. You leave a new person!"
"This beautiful cottage delivers on all fronts. It is secluded and private with a vast garden which naturally meets the Loch. The private beach is a little jewel and our dogs particularly enjoyed the morning walk to visit Sammy the seal. Lou and Nigel are on hand with excellent local knowledge and nothing is a problem. They will go out their way to provide or assist you during your stay. Please take their advice and leave your car in the top car park unless you have a 4x4. The drive down is spectacular and certainly gets the adrenaline going."
"We have been returning guests and will visit again in 2020. This will be our 5th year. It's honestly that good. Take the opportunity to visit and you won't be disappointed. Enjoy the surroundings and local cuisine. Best of all.....enjoy this wonderful cottage!"
