Guests Comments :
“We are so thankful – it has been like the most beautiful fairy tale. Ullapool, the Stonehouses, the Highlands – a dream – we do not want to wake up! Thanks for making us so welcomed at this gorgeous place.”
“Second visit – amazing weather – 3 beach days! Houses are a credit to your imagination and attention to detail. Yoga on the wall was a delight. Back to reality now – no more comfort at every turn – but relaxed to the core after a week here”
“The house is absolutely wonderful – everything we hoped for and more – shower and bath particularly superb and the langoustines were the best we’ve ever tasted – thanks so much for taking the trouble to get them for us. We also appreciated the hi-fi and gave it a good workout.”
“Thank you so much for looking after us in this superb setting and building. Stonehouse/Treetop is fantastic and the views are wonderful. We have had a great week walking, running, cycling and mountaineering. The langoustines (lively straight off the boat were delicious)”.
“We arrived in desperate need of complete rest and relaxation – at Treetop we found our sanctuary! The most beautiful house in a spectacular location. Rachel and Gavin, we cannot thank you enough. We are already planning and counting the days until we can return again”
“We both loved our stay in this fabulous accommodation and it was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon. We will always keep very fond memories of our time in the Stonehouses and we now have the perfect place for anniversary holidays!”
“A stunning house in a stunning area. Rachel and Gavin make the house feel like a home! Such a variety of areas to visit but the Geo Park area is magnificent. We return home fully revitalised”
“We have both loved our stay in this beautiful house and in the most perfect location. The house is so well appointed – a pleasure to be in, look in, sleep in and look out of.”
“Wonderful views, beautiful house- who could ask for any more”
“Great geology, great scenery, great walking, superb food and drink with special friends in such a splendid house. Hurrah for the Stonehouses”
“There is little we can add to the many expressions of delight, praise and appreciation made by earlier contributors to this book. We have found the Stonehouses to be a most beautiful place in which ‘to be’. We find ourselves wanting to share this place with our friends and family and hope to return. Ullapool is a great location. We have travelled North and South of here experiencing the dramatic landscapes of the NW Highlands of Scotland.”
