  • "I would recommend that the shower be changed as it is too big for the bathroom and the water tends to leak out of the end ."

    Otherwise had a lovely time and spoke to some lovely neighbours while there. I bought bird food for the birds and within days there was around 30 to 40 birds feeding which was really lovely. Beautiful area and backs on to the beach. Comfortable cottage. Would recommend it to others.

  • "We had the most amazing stay at 2 Tougal."

    Beautiful little residence with everything you needed for an enjoyable stay. It was a very peaceful location with amazing views. It was the perfect place to unwind and relax. There’s also some great walks in close proximity to the cottage. Altogether we had a very enjoyable week at Tougal. Thanks again.

    Having a stunning beach to walk along every morning was the best therapy.

  • "Excellent location for the beautiful beaches which are on the doorstep."

    Very comfy accommodation. Would be good to have Tougal listed with other properties at road end as although directions were good not having Tougal listed on one of the boards at entrance made it seem it was not at that location.

  • "This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the west coast of Scotland."

    It is near the beach with very easy access for a walk on the white sands. Everywhere nearby was so busy this year but this stretch of beach remained quiet and peaceful. It.was heaven to come home to.

  • "The cottage is fabulous."

    Everything you need is supplied and it's just a short walk to the beach. The cottage is very clean and had a smart tv which is great for rainy nights in. We went to book again for next year but sadly it's doubled in price so we won't be going back.

  • "We had an excellent holiday, it is a beautiful and comfortable cottage in a beautiful place."

    Everything was there and worked, we cannot complain. The only problem we had was that there were lots of noisy campers on the beach nearby on Friday to Sunday and then again at the end of our stay. They played loud music long after 10pm, shouted until midnight, played dance music again from 9 in the morning and left lots of broken glass, rubbish and excrements on the beach. I don't know if that's normal or if it is a result of this year's 'staycations', but it slightly spoilt the experience. It might not be a problem for adults staying, but our small children were kept awake till late. I am not sure if there is anything the owners can do about this, but many communities took the action of making rules about when music can be played near houses and people are fined if they leave rubbish behind. Our experience with Sykes Cottages was awful though and we decided never to book through them again. They did not communicate with us at all when covid-19 pandemic hit in spring 2020, never replied several emails and messages that I sent them, and then basically forced us to rebook to this year at a higher price, otherwise we would loose all money. I believe that was unlawful behaviour by this company, but I could not be bothered to take them to court. However, I joined the Sykes Cottages Unhappy Customers Facebook page and saw that we were not alone at all, that is standard treatment by this company and some people ended up treated even much worse, losing thousands due to unlawful trading of this company. Will never again give them (or their associates) another penny of my money.

  • "The cottage was small but perfect for our short stay."

    Right on the beautiful beach, we were blessed with warm weather, so had several days on the beach. Safe for children to paddle. There were lots of people camping on the beach during our stay but we still managed to get a good spec on the beach. The police shut the road during our stay to stop overcrowding. Horse riding just down the road is really good, they took us trekking on the beach and horses paddled in the sea Beds in the cottage were very comfortable. As owners suggest, its good to stock up on food and supplies in Fort William, unfortunately we had a car full so shopped in the small co-op in Mallaig. A stop at Glenfinnan is well worth the views, particularly if you have Harry Potter fans like we do, but get there early before the crowds. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we totally relaxed

    And to be able to wander across the back garden, onto the sand dunes and straight onto our sandy beach was incredible - it made the holiday!

    Excellent wood burning stove. One issue - the property details state 'fuel and power is included in the rent' which is not quite right. Only enough logs and kindling were provided for one evening. Fortunately we took a sack of logs and kindling with us 'just in case', and logs are readily available in nearby Mallaig. You will need to correct the details accordingly.

    Beautiful location with the most stunning beaches. Fantastic place to relax and unwind. Plenty of lovely walks to do. The cottage was perfect, clean, modern, and very comfortable it had everything you could possibly want or need in a holiday home. Best sleep ever in the double bed!
