    • “My family and I absolutely loved this cottage. This cottage is full of that amazing Scottish charm with everything provided for your stay. There is a local supermarket round the corner for all your supplies. Great location and centrally located for self drive tours in all directions. Loch Ness is a couple of mins drive as is Urquhart Castle. Inverness is only 20mins drive. Loch Ness exhibition centre is 2 mins up the road.. Surrounded by absolutely amazing scenery.. We will definitely be booking this cottage again when we are next in Scotland :-)”

    • “Almost sat on Loch Ness, spotlessly clean, a great log burner that gives off heat! Very comfortable and the owners are very accommodating. The walks around the area are fantastic, we finally managed to tire our border collie dog out which was a first. Walk to garage for wood, co-op for food and pubs. Hope to return when its snowing, it was forecast but never arrive. Maybe we will be snowed in and have to extend the stay. Perfect!”

    • “This cottage was a perfect Valentine's getaway for my boyfriend and I. It was relatively easy to locate, even at night, and when we arrived the heating was turned on. All the amenities described were there, including extras. The cottage itself was very cosy, and the surrounding location had lots of walking paths and beautiful scenery. There were no issues with noise and it was lovely to be able to walk outside and see hills and farm areas. I absolutely loved this cottage and would highly recommend it to anyone.”
