    It was comfortable and well maintained inside and there is enough space for 4 people. Negative points - the cottage shares its grounds with a second property. We had booked this cottage due to it's remote location, so feel that this is something that should have been clear in the write up (thisis something that Sykes should ensure for all properties). However, that said there was no noise / interuption from the other cottage as the guests like us wanted the peace and quiet and it was so peaceful in the area that it made no difference, but for the sake of transparency it would have been nice to know. Positive points - the owners were friendly and helpful and clearly cared that their guests had everything that they needed; the cottage was well maintained. The verandah was a God send, it was perfect for sitting, relaxing and staring at the gorgeous view down Lock Duich, we find that a lot fo Scottish cottages don't make enough of the beautiful outside spaces that they have, but this cottage really did buck that trend and I can't praise Dave enough for adding this feature. We could have sat there all day, it truly is a special location. The remoteness of the cottage gave us the peace and quiet we were craving. Nightly visits from badgers and a pine marten really put the icing on the cake for us, it was so good to see the wildlife so close. All in all an excellent stay.

The property

This charming cottage nestles on a pretty hillside in the tiny village of Letterfearn, overlooking Loch Duich with views down the loch to the Five Sisters of Kintail.

The elevated situation of the cottage is enhanced by the addition of a full length covered veranda from which the spectacular location can be truly appreciated in all weathers.

With the spacious accommodation on one level there are two generously proportioned bedrooms, a twin room and a double room, which has doors leading out to its own private decked patio area.

The well-equipped and sunny kitchen/dining room is simply ideal for those who wish to enjoy home-cooked meals together and the cosy sitting room with the woodburning stove is to be enjoyed after a busy and active day.

With a mountainous backdrop and wonderful views to the front it will be hard to leave this perfect spot but close by there are an amazing amount of activities to be enjoyed.

A short drive around the loch takes you to the much photographed Eilean Donan Castle which boasts a good restaurant and shop and the castle is open to the public for much of the year and well worth a visit.

If castles interest you then cross the bridge to Skye and incorporate a visit to Dunvegan Castle during your tour around the magical island.

For a more adventurous drive follow the hill road over Mam Ratagan and into the village of Glenelg.

The road itself is a popular attraction with great viewpoints and during the summer months a small ferry crosses the Sound of Sleat to Skye which is a special crossing and perhaps more enjoyable than taking the bridge.

A wonderful unspoilt area and a charming cottage to ensure a great holiday.
