“Utterly glorious!”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

What a wonderful place for a winter escape! We loved everything about it: the lovely interior, the glorious views, the roaring fire and the peace and quiet..... It was perfect for us and we can't wait to return!

“Absolutely Brilliant”
Reviewed 23 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Stayed in the larger of the cottages with friends, there were 7 of us in total for 4 of the days and the cottage didn't feel cramped at all (even with the 4 dogs).
Lovely loch right outside the door that the dogs enjoyed being walked on when the tide was out, when the tide was is there were plenty of forrestry tracks where there wasn't any livestock (neighbour advised where to walk and that the only thing they could try and chase would be the deer).
Garden is secure except for the smaller of the dogs who could manage to wriggle under the gate, but only done that once.
Log burning stove was brilliant and made everyone very sleepy with the heat it produced.
Great place to stay to either chill out and do very little except walk the dogs, or would also be great to use as a base to visit the surrounding area (pucks glen is less than an hour away).
No phone signal for O2 at all, friend had a vodaphone sim card which picked up a signal no problem (O2 you had to drive up the hill towards Tighnabruiach, and it's quite a climb).
Will defo go back and would highly recommend it.
