“Amazingly clean and well equipped new build house overlooking Loch Ness with the most brilliant view. We felt safe and warm as the weather changed from hail to sun to sleet! The Wifi was excellent and both TVs were equipped with all the Apps you need. The beds were super comfortable and luxurious. Hot water never ran out and the showers were really nice to use.”
