Contin, Ross and Cromarty, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Situated in a beautiful Highlands village in the heart of Scotland ideally situated for Loch Ness , the Cairngorns and Isle of Skye.

This is really a special place with our site situated next to the river Blackwater and some of the Munro mountains almost on the doorstep, with great fishing , hiking and mountain biking in close proximity . Everyone is drawn to the river here , not only to watch our local Heron who loves to fish on our stretch of the river but also to enjoy paddling and even swimming . In the sky you will almost inevitably see the majestic Red Kites soaring above you with their distinctive markings .

Our self catering lodge is in the highland village of Contin , and about 18 miles from Inverness and Loch Ness . There are regular buses to the village from Inverness and with a bus stop just outside the site for those...

Reviewed 26 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Accommodation was clean but basic. Shower was tiny you could barely move in it and it certainly hadn't been refurbished for some years. The kitchen was cluttered (certainly not as pictured) with no space for food preparation. The main bedroom was cramped with one double bed and a single, you couldn't get to the wardrobe properly because the single bed...

Management response:

Thanks for your review. Nobody has ever mentioned the size of the shower before and it is a standard size shower tray so I am very surprised by that comment. We feel there is plenty of room in kitchen for food preparation as there is a whole length of work-surface to use which is close to 4ft long . We...

The chalet is located in a central area of Scotland and therefore great to arrange day trips from. The chalet is cosy and has comfortable chairs and a nice couch. The bedrooms are fine and the kitchen has all the utensils you need. It's not super modern but definitely will meet all your basic needs. The bathroom is very minimal....

Management response:

Many thanks for your review. We had issues with BT supply for WiFi and this has now been sorted out , but was outside of our control at the time.
