This house is well situated for outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking and kite flying with its close proximity to some outstanding beaches, road routes and mountains. The view from the house lends itself to a chill out day if the weather isn't so favourable. The information provided pointed us in the right direction for local eateries and we very much enjoyed the Aultbea Hotel which provided excellent food and service. We also enjoyed a day trip to Ullapool and had the best fresh fish street food. The house is very well kitted out and we would highly recommend a stay at Mayar Bhan and hope to return some time to do all the things we didn't have time to do during our holiday.
Fantastic week in a fantastic location, despite the weather (it is Scotland!) we had a fabulous week based here exploring the north west coast. We covered Applecross in the South to the Drumbeg loop in the North and everything in between from this location. Lovely touch leaving the wine and caramel wafers - thank you Neil! Communication from booking to arrival was spot on as was the house itself - couldn't fault it. I'll leave you with a couple of views from the house...
Mayar Bhan is an outstanding property. Inside it is bright, airy and a delightful place to be, whether sitting with your feet up on a comfy chair or sofa looking out across Gruinard Bay to the Summer Isles and the mountains of Inverpolly or sitting at the breakfast bar enjoying a coffee or beer or (if like me you like to cook) enjoying preparing food in the beautiful spacious and well equipped kitchen or watching the family of swallows in the eves come and go in July/August. The fixtures, fittings, furniture and artwork throughout the property are stylish and of high quality.
The owners have taken great care and thought in ensuring the every aspect of our stay was perfect from the property itself to good communication throughout booking and advice about places to eat and things to do in the area. The welcome pack is very extensive. Mayar Bhan is holiday property which is hard to beat (and I've been to a lot of lovely properties around the Highlands over the years). We loved our week and were genuinely sad to leave.
We spent a fantastic week in this wonderfully cosy, yet light and airy house. The view is beautifully breath taking and with the large deck and large garden, its the perfect set up. The house itself is well equipped with high quality furnishings and everything you could possibly need - there is really nothing that could be done better.
The location offers all you need for an active family holiday with stunning beaches and amazing scenery. Can't recommend enough but would prefer to keep it a secret! Would love to return.
Neil, the owner of this beautiful house, was very friendly, helpful, responded quickly and provided detailed and knowledgeable information to all our communications.
The house was well equipped, comfortable, very warm (even on the dull/rainy days we had) and had fantastic views of the sea, islands and mountains. Pictures don't do the house or views justice.
The local post office/petrol station/shop was well stocked and exceedingly friendly.
The area provides an abundance of places to walk/run/cycle and visit and numerous places to eat.
Looking forward to returning next year.
