Feagour cottage
(or if you want to pronounce it right Fee-ga-wer)
It is exactly as described. We have just returned (21 -03 15) from a fantastic week of walking.
The place is so peaceful and quiet, with walks from your door with no requirement to drive anywhere, except for shops.
Laggan just up the road with a small shop logs bread milk etc bigger shops in Newtonmore about 15 -20 minutes slow drive (Why would you go fast anyway?)

The cottage:
Best to read the notes left everywhere before you settle in too much this way it will save you time later, some not so obvious things that will need to be pointed out to you like recycling etc.
Warm cosy well facilitated with everything you need and more the heating is central and with a log burner. Apart from the starter pack You will need to supply your own logs or donate some cash if you use the ones in the log store or in our case just replace them. Bed ok, we found it a little hard but hey, im not complaining. Unfortunately guest book full, we were unable to say thank you to the owners.

(top tip if you’re using the log burner look for the brass knob on the RH side and pull it out to get a draw on the fire when you’re happy push it back in again, you will know when its burning properly as it will sing to you LOL..... you will know what I mean)
The shower was great and roomy didn’t use the bath all worked fine. Sky TV worked fine also when chilling at night. Phone signal ok, so you have coms if you need them. The cottage was great.

The wildlife:
Extensive logging and the construction of new pylons route immediately behind the cottage has devastated and all but cleared off the local wildlife. read through the guest book and some have seen everything we had IR night vision and seen nothing all week although the odd red deer track could be found but these are individuals and not in herds. Although disappointing not the fault of the owners and the wildlife will return soon enough. This does not include the greedy pheasants that will clear up all the bird food you put out and even jump up on to the pole feeder. Please also note you may hear tapping on the window in the morning don’t panic its just the birds tapping at the glass in the main living room and it happened twice.

Last words:

A wonderful cottage and wonderful location
Did we like it...A big yes
Would we go back.... Yes
Do we recommend it ....Yes

“Absolutely Fantastic week away, definitely return to this stunning location.”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

On arrival at the Cottage we were stunned by just how beautiful this place was, I have to say the pictures on the Sykes Website simply don't do the place justice. Owner was very helpful, we had contacted her on the Thursday to discuss Key pick up and also asked if the Cottage had Sky as we were wanting to watch the Boxing on our first night, she advised it did and arranged for the pay per view boxing for us which we thought was over and above our expectations. I have nothing negative to say at all about the Cottage, it was a pleasure to return too after a day out. Kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need, Sitting Room is very comfortable and cosy with a Log Burning Fire, we didn't get to use the Fire as the weather we had was amazing, was not expecting to be sat outside in Shorts and Vests but I'm not complaining. Bathroom is all newly fitted out with a bath and separate shower and the bedrooms are both a good size with comfortable beds. Lots of Wildlife visit the property garden, lots of different Birds and if your lucky you'll get to see the Pine-marten's that visit, we left food for them each day but they will only come for it if your inside. All in all this is a fantastic Cottage amongst the most stunning scenery and for the price you pay for the week it is a Bargain. Would recommend to anyone..!!!
