This is in a gorgeous place! Fiona and Ian were very helpful! Not too far away from the shops! Some lovely walks around! Would definitely recommend it!
It would have been a rather positive review if it wasn't the poor contact with the owners.
It started since the very beginning. When I booked the property the owner didn't seem to pay attention to what I was asking her and proceed on doing things her way.
Then we learned that we will have to pay for all the electricity we consummated during our stay since there is a coin machine which needs to be filled with 1 pound coins to provide electricity.
Then came the news that no towels are provided and when I said that we are with a little child and we are taking the plane with a restricted luggage policy, I was told that no exception was to be made and we need to pay 6 pounds per head to have towels. Now, I don't really understand how one can furnish entirely a home and rent it to people without towels! Especially when this fact was not mentioned anywhere when I was making the reservation.
Then when we arrived the owners (who weren't there but arrived 2 days later) never came to ask whether we need something or just say "hello". The same was on the day of our departure. And they leave downstairs from the cottage! May be I am a bit too old fashioned but this is not my understanding of hospitality.
Be aware that Scotland could be quite cold even during summer so be prepared to pay 3 extra pounds per day for electricity. Also I didn't enjoy sleeping on the mattresses provided for the double bed, they were old and rather soft, with old matrass protectors that make the most unpleasant noise when one is moving in the bed.
Otherwise, very nice view from the window and the barbecue is very good if you are lucky enough to have the weather with you. Good documentation on the regions provided. We rented for 1 entire week and the flat was not cleaned once during our stay
It's a pity that almost everything is well done at that place but the overall impression is bitter because of details that could be easily changed for not a lot of extra effort or money.

I (we) found the property well "laid out" very adequate , tidy, neat, lovely views,..most modern,
and both bedrooms were of a high standard ..with lots of cupboard space etc...
will probably come again !...
am now awaiting my deposit back ? ?
The apartment like a home from home with everything required spotlessly clean . The views were stunning with deer crossing the track down to the loch daily . Fiona and Ian were absolutely brilliant helping with any queries we had . A beautiful place with beautiful people . Well worth the 10hr drive . We will definately be back .
