It really was perfect, log fire, all the amenities and lovely surroundings, shame we had to leave! Highly recommend it if you want to get away and be kinda of in the middle of no where (you can still get to a shop and have wifi). Location was good for getting to places, and the drives to them take you through some great scenery. Lovely to wake up to the chickens pottering about as well.

Found this holiday rental to be one of the best equipped Iv ever stayed in and at no extra cost which was a big thumbs up. The owners Graham and Ros were very helpful and on hand if we needed anything..which of course we didnt as they had already thought of everything! The surrounding were so beautiful and the sky at night was awesome! Being from a big city we rarely see the stars with light pollution so this was something else! Loads of stuff to do within driving distance, walks, lochs, boats rides etc Big thumbs up from us :-)

“Nice and quiet....”

This was the perfect getaway for us. We flew back from manic New York City in the morning and by lunchtime we were in the serene surroundings of Samhach. The apartment is in the middle of nowhere so is the ideal retreat. If you are looking for a quiet place to cosy up for a few days, then look no further. Wood-burning fire and full Sky TV package mean you have plenty of comforts when indoors (and the owners had left a decanted dram of Aberlour for us - nice touch) and there are nice walks in the quiet countryside all around if you feel energetic. Lovely.

“The perfect highland get away”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had an amazing time at Samhach . Property as described, everything catered for, and more so! My partner enjoyed the whiskey left for us so much that we visited the distillery from where it was made! The scenery, locally, was astounding, the property Situated in the most idyllic and tranquil setting. Driving to and from various trips was as enjoyable as the trips themselves. We really found it hard to leave.

“Cosy little cottage in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This little cottage is an ideal get away for those looking for tranquility. The cottage is so snug and warm and cosy with every facility necessary.

The location is excellent for exploring - a car is essential, you can thoroughly investigate around the whole of Loch Ness in just a couple of days taking in some absolutely stunning landscape and views to die for.

It was just wonderful to return to our little retreat after an energetic day.

Although the owners were away during our stay, they were extremely helpful with all our communications and we hope to return one day to meet them.

Would highly recommend the RIB boat trip on Loch Ness from Fort Augustus, although maybe a little pricey it was exhilarating!!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We went to Samhach with our daughters aged 11 and 12. The location is idyllic - so peaceful, in the middle of nowhere. We loved the outside area and even though we had rain, the girls loved playing outside and the chickens were a big hit. Also the eggs which were delicious. The accommodation was comfortable and had everything we could have needed. The weather was too warm for the fire but I can imagine in cooler weather it would be lovely to curl up on the sofa in front of a roaring fire. Ros, Graham and Noah were so hospitable - Ros took in our shopping for us and when we found out that the milk was missing she very kindly gave us some of hers, for which we were very grateful . Leaving a decanter of Scotland's finest was a lovely touch - so welcoming. We would love to go back - it is such a peaceful, beautiful part of the country. Highly recommended!
