“Simply the Best”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Second visit to this Fantastic Log Cabin. The scenery is absolutely stunning and I especially love it here in the winter when the surrounding Mountains are dusted with snow.
Early in the morning the deer are right outside the cabin and amazing to watch.
The Cabin is stunning, very clean with all mod cons.
Karl is always there to help if the need arises...i.e. Lighting the Fire
Fort William 10 mins away in the car to get your food shopping and other supplies.

Hey ho, yet another very satisfied customer, thank you and yes the deer are a lovely sight first thing in the morning. You know there will always be a very warm welcome for you...even without the pre-lit woodburner! Hope to see you again very soon.

“Relaxing Getaway”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Chalet Rus Blaich - beautiful setting. We stayed a week and it provided the relaxing break we needed. Deducted a * as we experienced a very large number of beetles (appreciate there may have been a couple since we are in the country however there was a lot dropping from the ceiling to the extent we had to check our drinks, meals etc!). Several of the light bulbs/sockets also needed to be replaced/fixed.

I am sorry "IF" you experienced what you seem to have gone through but I had not received any feed back at the time of your stay. Any problems you may have had would have been attended to straight away. As for light bulbs and sockets not working, light bulbs are easily replaced as soon as they blow and there are no faulty sockets as this property is a pretty much a new build. We have never had any complaints of this nature which can only lead me to conclude you are reviewing the wrong property. Please in future raise issues with us if they exist, but please get your facts right before placing a review that can in turn damage the high reputation that we strive to maintain.

“Another superb visit...”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent our third visit to this luxurious log cabin from 24th Sept till 1st October 2016. This visit, as the other two was a superb getaway from our everyday lives. This time we finally got to see the deer that the visitors book mentions. Three in a group seen around 7am and similar time in the evening.
Colin's local knowledge is a great asset for visitors, especially those on a first visit. Karl yet again surpassed himself with making us feel welcome and providing us with transport to Fort William for our anniversary meal. Nothing is to much trouble for Karl and his team. We would highly recommend to all a visit.

Nice to see you to Julie, we are planning to be up around easter time next year.

Hi again and thank you for taking the time to put in a good word or two about us, we really appreciate your kind words.
It was lovely to see you both again, 2 years have passed and neither of you have changed a bit!
Please remember you are always welcome and we look forward to seeing you both again hopefully in the Easter period next year.

“Cozy and luxurious cottage in the Highlands”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Very cozy and comfortable cottage in a small village which is close to Fort William (30 minutes). The cottage offers everything what you need for a short term stay in the Highlands and we have really enjoyed to stay there for 2 weeks.
