Apologies for the heading cliché but I couldn't think of anything more suitable.
It is now a couple of weeks since our return from Nia Roo and the sense of calm and rest that we felt whilst there is still with us.
The number of positive comments in the reviews posted are all well justified and even the fussiest of visitors would be hard pushed to find anything to mention.
I would only be repeating many of the things mentioned by previous reviewers if I listed all the positives connected to this property but suffice to say that it offered all the comforts of home plus things that we would have on our wish list.
We have rented for the last 20 years in both the UK and Europe and have never found a better place.
Thank you, We hope to return.
Absolutely fantastic cottage, the best we've stayed in and we've stayed in a lot across the west highlands over the years! Great location for Munro/Corbett bagging. Good pub within 20 minute walk.. Cottage is very well equipped and has superb views over the loch. It's not often we say we'll return somewhere as we like to see different areas but there is so much to do in Kintail that we will definitely be back!
This was our second visit to Nia Roo. It was so lovely to be back. This time we brought family with us and they were all blown away by the cottage and the area. I was so excited to show them as we have always talked about it as we got engaged there in 2013. Nia Roo has the most amazing views looking across loch Duich. We spent most of our evenings in the sunroom looking out at the views. We were blessed with fantastic weather and enjoyed days out to Plockton, Applecross, Skye, a walk to the falls of Glomach (wow) and boat trips, saw lots of seal and porpoises. Nia Roo is so well equipped, is immaculate and modern and is without doubt the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed at. Everything is to a high standard.It will always be special to us. Its very hard leaving such a wonderful place. Thankyou Christine and Colin, we will definitely be back.
This house sits in an elevated position below the five sisters of kintail..ten mins away sits the beautiful Eileen Donan castle..then there is the isle of skye ..great location for these special places ..would highly recommend Nina roo,it's a lovely comfortable house with all the small touches that make a house welcoming
This was our second visit to Nia Roo and I was so excited to get back here, It felt like coming home, we had another amazing week and were lucky enough to be blessed with fantastic weather...we actually came back with a suntan! Nia Roo is like home from home, it has everything you could possibly need, the location is stunning and I'm missing waking up to those beautiful views of the loch and mountains already.
The owners Christine and Colin are lovely friendly people who are there if you need anything, Colin kindly took us to see the stags again, also the highland cattle, nothing was too much trouble. Nia Roo is spotlessly clean, the beds are really comfortable, there are two restaurants/pub really close by that you can walk to, it just has everything and more! Can't wait to come back xxx
Am sure everyone has enjoyed that feeling of arriving home .
That's exactly how we feel when we return to Nia Roo.
Have just visited for our fifth time. The pleasure we feel, every time we drive into the glen , knowing we are nearly there. is like a child at Christmas.
Nia Roo itself is perfect. Immaculate lovely and modern, with absolutely everything you need for a holiday.
Every thing inside is off a high standard. From furnishings to fittings.
The hosts Christine and Colin and family, are welcoming with , a true highland friendliness. Any questions or problems . Are easily rectified.
A lovely family, A lovely Home .
And spectacular scenery.
Leaving again with a heavy heart. And look forward to next visit.
The stags in the garden were a added bonus this time . Plus the golden eagle . Behind the cottage.
Will have to stop with the praise for Nia Roo. As might not be able to book in
Thanks again Christine and Colin .
The booking was effortless and the owners contacted us prior to arrival to check if we had any questions and to provide detailed travel information, with this information the cottage was easily found just a few mins from the main A87. On arrival at the cottage we found it well appointed with everything you could need, large rooms and a beautiful view over Loch Duich, there are 3 large bedrooms one on-suite with shower. Our main aim for the week was to do some walking, we were spoiled for choice with Gleann Lichd and Gleann Choinneachain just 15 mins from our doorstep as well as 5 Munro's. We enjoyed walking most days but on our two 'rest' days we managed to visit Attadale gardens, Lochcarron and Applecross one day and the woodland walk and gardens at Balmacara just a short journey and Skye Clan Donald museum and gardens the second day, all very enjoyable days out. We had one day of heavy rain yet is was lovely and warm and dry sitting in the sun room at the front reading, really just an excuse to sit back and enjoy the view and peace and quiet. We mainly ate in, as the cottage has a large fully equipped kitchen, but enjoyed one of the best haddock and chips at the Glenshiel lodge (1 mile from cottage) on our last evening. We can't wait to come back.
