  • "Cabin was well kitted out with every imaginable item."

    Beds were very comfortable - shame about poor television reception, but to be expected, given the area. The milk and shortbread was a lovely touch, thank you. Would definitely book again.

    everything was catered for , even our grandson with a cot made up for him and a high chair too. all the bedding was first class and the log cabin so clean we didn't find anything that they could have done more. we all would recommend this log cabin and its the first time ever that we left a thank you card and a box of chocolates. WELL DONE to the cleaner . may we add the views are amazing from log cabin .just wonderful.

  • "Had a fantastic stay, the cabin is in a beautiful position with amazing views."

    The cabin was spotless on arrival just as the pictures showed, the beds were soft and so comfortable we had the best nights sleep in ages! Great little village with friendly people and lovely walks on your doorstep. Beautiful countryside with amazing wildlife. Gets a 10/10 from me.

  • "This is a wonderful cottage with excellent facilities and views."

    The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, implements etc. At first we thought that there was no cutlery until we discovered the hidden drawer inside the top draw of bowls etc! The beds are very comfortable and rooms spacious. We couldn't fault the accommodation, the only disappointment was that we could not find any sandy beaches within easy reach of the cottage. Half an hour's drive to Ardtoe and surrounding area however provided lovely beaches for the children to play on. Strontian has two shops, the small village shop and a larger supermarket. They are well stocked and provide for most needs. For us, Strontian was a little isolated requiring driving on single passing roads for up to an hour to get to Fort William or other larger places.

  • "Westray is an idyllic log cabin set in the most scenic of surroundings near Strontian, on Scotland’s west coast."

    It is the ideal location to stay in to visit the nearby islands of Mull and Skye and to see the spectacular scenery on offer in surrounding locations. The cottage sleeps 5 and is very clean and comfortable, exactly as advertised. The cottage is equipped with everything one would need for a stay there including non-perishable cupboard items such as tea, coffee etc and the owners even provided a carton of milk in the fridge and a packet of biscuits for our arrival which was a very thoughtful touch. The cottage has towels and all bedding provided. It also has plenty crockery, cutlery and pots and pans and other items. It has a tv, DVD player and WiFi. There wasn’t a thing we could complain about.

  • "The cabin was very well presented in a beautiful location."

    We have visited Strontian on a number of occasions and have stayed in other cabins on the site and this is the nicest one we have stayed in. The only negative feedback is that some of the dining chairs were wobbly, the picnic bench was broken and there was not a decent dustpan and brush. However the cabin was very clean and had lovely views with a decking area attached to the main garden. We would recommend and revisit. Had a wonderful relaxing stay.

  • "Fantastic cabin in a fantastic location, exceeded expectations and loved the new French doors off the double bedroom on to decking area."

    ...enjoyed a glass of wine whilst overlooking loch sunart. Ardnamurchen peninsula has plenty to explore, will definitely be back, a week is not enough, lovely walks from village and locals very helpful and friendly. Car ferry nice and frequent to mainland and went up into highlands to aviemore through cairngorm national park to feed the reindeer. Drive through glen Coe is a must. The ideal place to stay for either a chilled out holiday or action packed one.
