  • "The cottage is cosy and well equipped, and has lovely sea views from many of the rooms."

    It also has some attractive art-works, and is well-stocked with books, games, CD's and DVD's, so a pleasant place to relax. There are attractive walks right from the door plus many other attractive places to visit further afield. Would gladly return!

  • "The cottage is very comfortable, with a view of a tidal loch which exceeded our expectations."

    It has special little extras like beautiful photos with Highland views and a tasteful, attractive painting in the living room, as well as a fantastic selection of games and books. We also loved the inclusion of some Scottish artists coffee table books. Very thoughtful and generous.

    Amazing scenery and lovely walks with the grandkids and dogs. We can not recommend the Viking cottage highly enough. Will definitely be back for a longer stay 5 stars

  • "A lovely cottage in an amazing area."

    Perfect setting to get away from it all and seeing nature and stunning scenery. The cottage is very well equipped, really comfortable beds and bedding, extremely clean and very warm too. The wood burner is amazingly effective and cosy if needed. (Only once in our case). There is lots of information at the cottage but, if any questions crop up, the the owners are very approachable and helpful. This isn't the area to come to if you are wanting reliable wifi etc. but perfect if you are happy to truly take in the atmosphere and embrace it. No hesitation in recommending for a totally relaxing but uplifting break.

  • "Viking Cottage was a real treat."

    We spent 5 lovely days in February in this warm spacious house. We saw stags on the beach, rainbows over the sea and explored the surrounding area. Would love to go back.

  • "We absolutely loved loved the cottage and loved the area it was in."

    It was clean, fresh and cosy. The views from it were dramatic and spectacular. Previous feedback mentioned that the owners had thought of everything and based on that I didn’t take some basic cooking ingredients that I have found in previous accommodations ie oil, sugar, salt, stock cubes etc and there wasn’t a supply. That’s not a criticism in any way but just useful for future tenants to know. Particularly good food in the area was The Lochailort Inn, Glenfinnan hotel and the Mingarry Park restaurant. As for what to do we loved the scramble to Smirisary beach, getting the boat to Eigg, watching the steam train cross the Glenfinnan Viaduct and finding Tioram castle. I also would recommend wildwood bushcraft mornings. We organised a private family morning and had a ball.

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful area ."

    .. if it’s views and peace you want this place is perfect. Whilst there is a convenience store just 2 minutes walk away it’s only open 2 - 5 Monday to Saturday so that’s worth bearing in mind for your first day. They’ve thought of everything in the cottage.
