  • "The flat was in a superb location ,views down Loch and mountains."

    Deer roaming locally and visiting garden. Only 2 miles to Mallaig with its harbour,cafes and restaurants. Take out in village of Morar. AND silver sands only a short walk away ,also Camus Darroch beach with stunning views. The flat was fair in price and we will return if we can .

  • "Fantastic location, wonderful view of Loch Morar from the dining table."

    Comfortable, clean and well equipped at a fantastic price. Owners live downstairs but you won't notice them unless you need them. They came up within minutes to sort out the Sky box and were as freindly and as helpful as you could wish for. All told it was a wonderful week and we wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

  • "Nice clean place, beautiful location."

    No complaints but a few observations to help improve for others and my probable next visit. There were no tea spoons, the wine bottle opener was useless and host should maybe consider a fixed shower, Oh and most importantly, if the host owns the garden, please please take a saw to those two conifers in the garden!! they are obscuring 50% of a fantastic view across Loch Morar. Thank you

    My wife and I felt so relaxed you are close to a beach and train station is close by if you like the steam train there are great places to catch it

  • "It’s perfect for exploring the surrounding area Morar, Mallaig, Arisaig and Fort William in a very tranquil setting with no noise."

    . Overlooks Loch Morar and has a daily visit from the deer who are extremely tame and willing to approach you. I was shielding and was able to do it perfectly in the surrounding area. Loch Morar is only 2-3 minutes away and we only saw a couple of people on our walk.

  • "An amazing location."

    We particularly enjoyed the fact that we could sit at the table with a view out over the loch and often see deer wander nearby. It was great to be able to self-cater, especially during Covid19. We are planning to return to Cooinda Flat next year as we had such a wonderful time.

  • "Cooinda Flat is located above the owners own property but has its own separate entrance."

    It is set back slightly from a quiet road next to Cooinda Cottage. There is a washing machine and dryer on the “ground” floor as you enter then stairs to the flat. As others have pointed out, the roof is sloping so those of taller stature might have an issue (and a sore head) by the end of their stay. The three bedrooms are a good size, though the beds aren’t the most comfortable and the furniture is beginning to show its age. The views from the living room window are stunning and there is a deer family that regularly visits the field nearby. The bathroom let’s the property down as the corner bath is under the sloping roof so it’s virtually impossible to stand and have a shower and is difficult for older people to get in and out of. A rethink of the layout might help. There was however plenty of hot water for a bath. There is parking in front of the Flat and cottage as well as directly outside in the street. Mallaig is 2.5 miles away with tourist shops and tea rooms as well as a small Co-operative Shop with all the basics for self catering as there is no shops in Morar itself. Mike (the owner) popped round at the start of the stay to say hello. If you’re looking for a base on which to travel over to Skye on the ferry, Cooinda flat is perfect.

    Flat comfortable and warm. The shower is a problem as previous comments have stated. Needs to be mentioned in details that there is no hairdryer. Be prepared to put in the miles to access visitor attractions.

  • "It is a lovely flat in the most perfect place."

    The accommodation is a lot larger than it looks in the pictures. If you have the weather there is no finer place to holiday. We had a great time.

  • "The apartment was ideal for our holiday over looking Loch Morar."

    It had everything we required to enable us to self cater in the evening. I would comment that as with most self catering units the cookery knives whilst they look nice in their block are not up to the basic job they are designed for i .e. being sharp enough to cut the produce. My only other comment and this is personal, the corner bath and shower head are through necessity fitted in the bathroom corner with a sloping ceiling I found difficult to access through not being able to bend my knees sufficiently.. Mike the owner is a charming and attentive host and I think Cooinda is ideal and I would. recommend it to friends and relatives as the perfect base for this area of Scotland. Another bonus is that the railway station is a ten minute walk away enabling you to visit Mallaig and Fort William without using the car.

  • "The only pity is it's such a long way to get here."

    The owner Mike was very helpful on arrival. The flat is spacious especially as there were only two of us. Location is fabulous ….The view ! constantly changing over the Loch......The walks..... The almost tame deer....Oh and the beaches,especially the coast road between Morar and Asisaig !!... and if you want to do the train ride from the village to Fort William the ordinary train has the same views and is much cheaper than the Jacobite (they share the same line). The road journey between Fort William and Morar/Mallaig is one stunning view after another so if you're the driver doing the same journey by train makes up for what you might miss even though you are tempted to stop every few hundred yards to take photos. We had mixed weather but it didn't detract from anything.

    Everyone’s patience with us due to our delayed flights and lost luggage was a Godsend. It’s horrible when you have to call the owner in the middle of the night because Google maps was a bit off.. He and his wife were wonderful!! Again, I loved the house and the utter peacefulness of the area is something I will cherish for a long time. Thank you for such a perfect experience!

  • "The only slight let down was that our partners had difficulty with the shower."

    It is not a stand-up shower, rather a bath with a shower hose at lower than waist height. So it difficult for our parents to manoeuvre comfortably to bathe. Other than that, top place.

  • "Cooinda Flat was very comfortable and the living room had a superb view over Loch Morar."

    There were excellent walking routes near to hand and a very good train link with Mallaig which, in any event, is only 3.5 miles distant. Consequently, Cooinda is a very good base for visiting the small isles.
