  • “We enjoyed our stay in a very comfortable cottage with a superb view.”

    The steps up to the front door would be a challenge for many people. The description of an open fire is misleading. There is a fireplace but it is not set up for use. It would be helpful to note on the website that all books and games have been removed for hygiene reasons. The electric towel rail in the bathroom was not working. There are only three mugs which is insufficient for a property that sleeps four people.

    Thank you very much for your comment, we are delighted to heat that you loved your stay and the view. The fireplace is in fact only decorative at the moment, we have amended the description accordingly. The towel rail broke unfortunately, we are trying our best to fix it but we might not be able to until the winter closure of the property. We were not aware of the mugs so thank you for raising this point, we will make sure to get more as soon as possible. Thank you again for the lovely comments. Property Owner

About the location

MALLAIG

Fort William 43 miles.

The famous 'Road to the Isles' finishes in Mallaig, a bustling and thriving fishing village, popular with visitors who wish to soak up the atmosphere of a working fishing port, whilst enjoying the full range of shops and restaurants that it has to offer. Mallaig is a great gateway to the Isle of Skye with a ferry running across the Minch throughout the year. Mallaig is also the last stop for the famous Jacobite steam train, as featured in the Harry Potter movies, which follows the road to the Isles from Fort William to Mallaig and back again, a stunning journey passing through some of the best scenery in Scotland.

This property is only available for a maximum of 4 people inclusive of infants/babes in arms.
