  • "We all had an amazing time at Silver birch cottage."

    Fabulous views all round.Great walks from the doorstep. Although a 40 mile round trip to the nearest Co-op this should not be deterrent to anyone thinking of staying there.The Isle of Sky is only a few miles further with some of the most loch and Mountain scenery! The cottage was more than equipped in regards to kitchen essentials. For observation only; None of the shower rooms/Bathroom have an extractor fan.The Master upstairs bedroom could do with a replacement Mattress as my Son found it very hard and uncomfortable due it lacking support from springs. We would give your housekeeper Nadja 110% for her cleaning skills. Cleanest holiday let we have ever stayed at. We hope to go back there sometime within the next couple of years! Jackie Dawson.

    Thank you Jackie for your great feedback. We are lucky to have a fantastic housekeeper who does an amazing job with the cleaning and I have passed your comments onto her. Although the cottage is in a fairly remote location, it is still served by Morrisons and Asda home delivery out of Inverness (though you do have to be organised and get a slot a few weeks in advance of your holiday). We always find we head out towards Kyle and Broadford for days out during the week so combine a trip to the Co-op with our day out. As you found, the views and walks more than make up for the lack of shops! We are staying up there for New Year so I will check out the mattress. We are so pleased that you had an amazing holiday and look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "The place was extremely well maintained, very clean and had all the necessary equipment you need for a great week away."

    That last point is really important, the kitchen was well looked after and all the small things, like sharp knives, made the stay like a home from home. Highly recommend. The owners were great and had loads of local knowledge and recommendations to share.

    Thank you Louis for your great feedback. Having stayed in a large number of holiday cottages without good kitchen equipment, we have made sure that our kitchen is very well equipped. I hosted a dinner party for friends when I was there last week and it was just like cooking in my kitchen at home! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future to further explore the area - there is so much to see and do. Property Owner

    Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay. The weather wasn’t on our side but that didn’t affect our experience. Would highly recommend and hope to return one day!

    Thank you so much Elaine for your great feedback! It is always great to hear that our guests would recommend Silver Birch Lodge to others. If we could always provide good weather to go with the cottage, we would, but the weather has been a bit soggy recently. It isn't always like that so we will look forward to welcoming you back to experience the area in some better weather. Property Owner

    Excellent location for exploring such a fantastic scenic area.

    Thank you so much Michael for your great feedback. We have a really good housekeeper looking after the property for us - she is very thorough with the cleaning and we are lucky to have her helping us. I really enjoyed decorating and furnishing Silver Birch Lodge so am made up that you liked it and found it very comfortable. We have to agree with you that the area is very scenic - we know we are biased but the view across Loch Duich to the 5 Sisters of Kintail is one of the best views anywhere.

    It is spotless, comfortable and is situated in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. If the UK heatwave continues through the summer, perhaps a pool out front? I jest of course. But the sun and the light just make the place even more magical.

    Thank you so much Christine for your great feedback - and I agree with you that Silver Birch Lodge is situated in one of the most beautiful locations in the world - the views from Ratagan are just stunning! The light changes constantly as does the view across the loch and towards the mountains.

    Thank you so much Neil for your great feedback.

    The house is spotlessly clean, well-furnished and tastefully decorated. Oh, and well-equipped, with comfortable mattresses. The views from the upstairs bedrooms are fantastic, and evening walks down to the sea shore to see the sun set over Loch Duich were wonderful. Recommended.

    Thank you so much Neil for some great feedback. May is one of the best months for the sunsets in Ratagan as the setting sun turns the 5 Sisters some fantastic shades of yellow, orange and red.

    The Lodge was very clean, warm, comfortable and there are stunning views from the property. The kitchen was very well equipped and appliances were easy to use. The owners emailed prior to our stay with very useful advice. The lodge is in a remote quiet location, so the advice prior to our stay e.g. bring provisions with you, was very useful. The Lodge is located in a good position for exploring the local area which has good walks, stunning scenery and interesting historical sites to visit. We fully recommend Silver Birch Lodge.

    Thank you Janet for such great feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Silver Birch Lodge. Really good to hear that you found the kitchen well equipped and appliances easy to use. We stayed in numerous cottages before owning our own so wanted to make sure that our kitchen was well equipped for most requirements and that the appliances weren't over complicated. There are certainly stunning views from the house - we are still of the opinion that the view of the 5 Sisters of Kintail from the loch shore at Ratagan is one of the best (if not the best) views to be had anywhere in Scotland!

    The views were exceptional, the beds were super comfortable, the kitchen had everything necessary for a brilliant stay, the house was very warm in spite of some very cold nights. There was plentiful parking space. Everything about the house and surrounding area was explained in quite a large loose leaf file kept in the living room in case you were not sure of anything.

  • "The property is in a great location with stupendous scenery."

    Overall the accommodation is very good. It is let down slightly by another house partially blocking the view to the loch and we felt awkward sitting at the table on the front deck looking into that house. The beds could be more comfortable. Most disappointing is the strict 9am check out, of which we were reminded several times, especially when you're expected to strip the beds, clean all the dishes etc.empty the dishwasher, and remove all food etc. Not wishing to get up very early, we decided to leave the previous afternoon.

    Thank you Stephen for your honest feedback. First and foremost we are glad that you had a lovely holiday and appreciated the surrounding scenery, which is nothing more than amazing - I could sit and look at that view all day long with its changing light. We have never disguised the fact that the property is not loch side and future guests shouldn't worry about sitting on the front decking. The neighbours we have in Ratagan are the best you could wish for anywhere - very friendly, discreet and exceptionally helpful. We would be lost without them. They are fully aware it is a holiday let and are very welcoming to all of our guests. And just remember - the view for them is at the front of their house - so that is where they tend to spend a lot of their time rather than at the back looking at Silver Birch Lodge. Sorry that you didn't find the beds comfortable. It is nigh on impossible to find a bed to suit everybody. I don't like soft beds, so we have tended to go for the slightly firmer bed - the kings are both quality sprung mattresses with memory foam on top. With regard to the 9am check in time we can only apologise. We have a really good, reliable and efficient housekeeper, but housekeepers for holiday lets are in high demand and short supply, much like many other jobs at present. As a result, most housekeepers do more than one changeover in a day and due to us being a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom property, the only way this can be fitted in is for a 9am check out. For many people this isn't an issue as they have a long distance to drive anyway so need an early start. When circumstances allow, we do let guests know if they can check out a bit later although this tends to be mainly in the lower season. We are keeping this closely under review and when circumstances allow we will change it. We are sorry that you felt you had to leave on the Friday afternoon because of it. If it is ever a huge issue, with enough notice we may be able to come to an alternative arrangement. On that note, we will look forward to welcoming you back should you wish to return in the future.

The dining room is off to the left and enjoys plenty of light from the patio doors leading out to the decking, where you can relax with a drink in hand and soak up the scenery.

A beautifully fitted kitchen has all you need for rustling up delicious dishes for the group, with sleek grey units and quality appliances, along with a utility room adjoining it home to the washing machine and tumble dryer.

From here make your way outside to the rear garden to find a lovely spot to enjoy nice weather, with an elevated patio home to a large picnic table.

Back in the house, the ground floor is home to one of the three lovely bedrooms, this one home to a king-size bed and served by the ground-floor family bathroom with a bath and overhead shower.

Take the stairs to come to a delightful reading space at the top of the landing along with two more sleeping spots, consisting of a twin bedroom and a master king-size bedroom, both featuring an en-suite shower room and large mirrored wardrobes to house your belongings.

Nearby Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland's most famous and popular sights, is perched at the end of a stone causeway on the shores of Loch Duich, whilst further south is the Glenelg Peninsula, a tranquil backwater, which is beautiful, remote and relatively undiscovered. An easy drive north of Kyle is the charming village of Plockton, famous for its palm trees, yacht-filled bay and the nearby hamlet of Duirinish with Highland cattle which wander the streets! Alternatively, cross the Skye Bridge to Skye itself and explore all that the mystical Isle has to offer.
