This house was lovely, very clean, well equipped for 8 adults & comfortable for a weekend. We loved the fire & open plan living and really did enjoy our stay. The location of the house is pretty, however the closest town is quite run down & surrounding areas are in need of a little TLC.

Beautiful property fitted out to a high standard right on the side of Loch Long. Photographs on website accurate. Only negatives: Garden area not fenced with stone steps down to loch side with no handrails. Steep short drop onto rock & loch side from grassed garden area.
