  • "The chalet was a lovely place to stay in general."

    However, it required some work i.e extractor fan and outside light not working. Fridge door did not shut properly, entrance floor very wobbly i.e potentially damaged and wet underneath. Chalet could have been cleaned to a higher standard with a bit of dust and hairs in the bathroom. Some windows did not shut especially in the front room and could seriously do with a TV in each room. Location was not easy to find but local people provided directions. Owner was very nice and helpful and did not interfere with our stay. Animals in neighbouring field provided evening entertainment for the whole family!

  • "Thanks for a wonderful stay."

    We had an amazing week of perfect sunshine. Beautiful views from the deck over the loch. The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable, and with a well-equipped kitchen. We really appreciated the eggs from the local friendly chicken!

  • "We had difficulty finding the cottage, the postcodes in Scotland cover a wide range of land."

    We tried to use the what3words address given but this was incorrect, it is approximately a mile further down the road. We did get some help from a lovely couple who did direct us to the right house.

  • "Fantastic location if you want peace and quiet."

    Gorgeous views over Loch Eil. Good location as base for lots of sightseeing, but bit remote ID you need supplies urgently. Would definitely recommend getting groceries on way to chalet. Owner lovely and didn't interfere with our stay, but greeted us on arrival and sought our opinion on chalet before we left.

  • "Brilliant! A lovely, comfortable, clean and cosy chalet, with SPECTACULAR views."

    To wake up, open the curtains and see the loch and the mountains in all their glory was like a picture postcard that changed every day. The sheepdogs in the neighbouring field entertained us daily with the sheep and the owners chickens came to visit day and night. Their eggs were also delicious. Nevis was climbed, lochs were cruised, wine and whisky were drunk on the deck and all in all a wonderful holiday. As for the weather!? First time I’ve been able to say we had no rain at all!, just beautiful sun. ☀️ Ross the owner was very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Highly recommended!

    The only drawback for us is the lack of WiFi. There was a working wood yard next door which we weren't expecting but this wasn't a major problem.

  • "Holiday was fantastic."

    Accommodation was lovely the view was stunning. I normally have trouble sleeping in different beds but this was comfortable even for my 6ft husband, the single beds are on the small size not quite big enough for adults but they did sleep ok in them. Can't fault accommodation for cleanliness. Our only tiny thing wrong was there is not enough seating in the lounge only a 2 seater sofa and 1 chair not ideal for 4 adults, we did bring a garden chair in with cushions on it was ok. But nothing to spoil our holiday. Great location as well. Would definitely recommend and will try to get back again in the future.
