Simple but clean traditional cottage sleeping up to six. Only one shower on lower floor although there is a bathroom upstairs which could/should have another shower unit installed. Who takes bath's these days?? Waste of water, especially on a £1 electricity meter and an immerser. Electric shower was adequate for four but six?? Outstanding scenery!!
We have holidayed in these chalets for over 30 years and have come to know the area very well. Frank and Juliet are excellent hosts and many of their customers come back year after year. If you want all mod cons, then this is not the place for you. There is no TV reception, limited WiFi and mobile phone signal. Only 2 of the chalets have showers, the rest have baths. Only the cottage has a dishwasher. There is a communal washing machine and tumble drier on the site. However when you look out of the window to see the deer grazing outside, a badger wandering past, a woodpecker on the birdfeeder, or a golden eagle soaring in the sky, none of this matters. We love this place for its isolation. It's a 24 mile round trip to the nearest shop in Beauly, and yet in 30 minutes you can be in Inverness if you want the theatre or bigger shops. The glen is closed with a locked gate across the bottom, managed by a gatekeeper, and only so many cars are allowed up it every day. There are many lovely walks in the area, some of them very challenging, and fishing is available on the river. If you want peace, quiet, fresh air, wildlife and relaxation then this is the place to stay. …
The cottage was finished to a high standard and owners were very helpful with arranging fishing for beginners and many other helpful tips. We were told that if we left peanut butter bread out at night we might get to see a badger and we sure did! Weather was good, had only a couple days rain in the week we stayed and we were lucky to catch a meteor shower the first night we were there. Our 4-year-old son insisted to walk to the nearby river every morning and evening, he absolutely loved the place! I highly recommend!
Dog friendly lodges are well equipped and clean. The lodges are in a great location for walking and the salmon fishing is on your door step. We booked 3 days salmon fishing, we didn't catch any but we saw 7 salmon jumping. The scenery is breathtaking in all weather, but be aware of the midgies. The owners Frank and Juliet are warm and friendly
Had a great two weeks in the cottage over Easter. Frank and Juliet were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The weather was typically Scotland at Easter - a mixed bag, however that did not detract from the stay. The accommodation was good value for money with plenty of room for the 5 of us and two dogs, - who loved it. Many great family days out and evenings in - also can recommend the Cnoc Hotel for a decent pub meal. The road to the top of Loch Monar is a fantastic way to see Scotlands wonderful countryside. I even ran the 26 miles there and back to prepare for a marathon. - Great experience saying hello to all the wildlife. Thanks for a great stay.
