“Comfortable well-appointed cottage in a fabulous location”
Reviewed 3 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had a wonderful holiday last week, the cottage is spacious with a well-equipped kitchen where we were greeted with a very good quality red wine on arrival (not to mention bread and butter too!) The owners were kind enough to call us on arrival to check that we were settling and they were available through the week if we needed to ask anything. We enjoyed sitting in the living room looking out at the amazing views, watching the light change on the hills and loch, and our daughter loved watching the birds come to the bird feeder in the garden.

The cottage is ideally placed, being set in countryside but a very short drive from Ullapool. We were busy every day and managed to fit in Knockan Crag, The Bone Caves, Gairloch, Lochinver & Glencanisp, Inchnadamph Caves and climbing Stac Pollaidh. There is so much to see in the area we were sad not to be staying a second week. Hopefully we will be able to return soon!

The house was fantastic and in a great location. Hills behind, a shore line in front and amazing views. Loads to do locally and the house was warm and very well equipped. We had a brilliant holiday and would highly recommend a holiday here.

“Consistently Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed again at this great holiday house - we have done every two years for at least 16 years and it has always kept up with the times and improved. This year was no exception the whole family loved it. There is lots to do around the area from great hill or coastal walks, to beaches, swimming pools and sea kayaking.

The house is well equipped with all the things which make it a home from home.
