Reviews:

“Would happily recommend and hopefully return one day. Even better and larger than photos suggest. Fantastic views of loch and mountains. Good location -near to lots of great walks and many great day trips in the area. Sufficiently away from main road and other properties to feel very private. Well appointed facilities especially kitchen – ideal for catering and very comfortable. Also felt reassuringly clean and safe in Covid times with enhanced cleaning procedures. Despite plenty of rain – the views were still majestic and enjoyed visiting Skye, Plockton , Eilean Donan castle , Loch Maree. Christine was an attentive host always quick to reply – not that there were any problems, and even apologised for weather!”

“Absolutely amazing. This property is exceptionally beautiful – surrounded by breathtaking Highland scapes. It is luxurious, well-appointed, and has everything you need for a home away from home. Christine provides a personal touch that was very nice indeed, and we loved the house so much that we barely stepped out all. Definitely recommend!”

“This is an outstanding property. The views are stunning and it has to be one of the most well equipped houses we have stayed in. It was very easy to travel to places to visit and Christine was on hand to answer any queries.
