The Beautiful place felt like a home away from home. Has everything you need and is cosy and very comfortable. Shirley is lovely and communication is great. We would love to come back!
We are just back from this lovely gem of a cottage facilities are amazing much much more than we expected. Everything was spotless and the little extras such as milk and coffee on arrival as well as all the other little things made our stay wonderful and after a day out was great to come home and have a log fire while preparing our evening meal . Can not recommend it highly enough it deserves so much more than 5 stars and Shirley and Colin were wonderful too . Will never look for anything else if in the area and we how to return next year
STAY HERE. This was by far the nicest of all of our airbnb's in the highlands and a GREAT price. Hosts were incredible and kind. A wonderful respite!
