The house was very nice, lots of room, good beds, great showers, and lots of kitchen equipment. Good wifi. However, by adding some nice towels (those that are there are thin and old) and renew one or two of the frying pans it would be a fantastic house. Lovely location.

Overall we loved this cottage and would rate it amongst the best we have stayed in. Very spacious and comfortable, and the layout certainly makes the best of the fantastic views. There are plenty of places to sit all around the house, to enjoy the views, inside and outside. Beds were comfortable, and the showers were good. What's more, The BadachroRead more Inn is excellent, and only a 5 -10 minute walk away. The perfect place to enjoy one of the best parts of Scotland. We hope to be back soon. Hide

The house itself is beautiful, plenty of seating and very airy, a lovely sun room, plenty of kitchenware, crockery & cutlery. The problem was the cooker, there was no separate grill, the grill was the top of the oven which meant that you couldn't use the grill if the oven was on and visa versa. This was not such a big problem for us as only 3 peoplRead moree could actually make the trip due to illness but as the house sleeps 8 it could cause problems for others. We were surprised that the downstairs room was a twin not a double and that this room had very little furniture to hang clothes etc. The garden is enclosed so perfect for dogs, unfortunately ours didn't make the journey because of the family illness but I'm sure she would have enjoyed exploring it.
