  • "Clearwater house is an amazing, comfortable house."

    A lovely base for exploring and enjoying the area. The views from all the windows are lovely, we could have sat in the lounge for hours watching the ever changing view of the clouds, and sometimes sun, move across the mountains in the other side of the loch. We even had a daily visitor, a buck roe deer, who we named Donald! patrolled the grass land in front of the loch. Everything you may need is provided, and so clean. Thank you for such a relaxing holiday.

  • "A lovely house in a dream location."

    Perfect for a bit of peace and quiet with fantastic scenery all around.

  • "This an outstanding property."

    The lochside setting is perfect, with lovely views and and access to two beaches. Because access to these is so limited, they are to all intents and purposes private. A problem developed with one of the showers during our stay and the owner arranged for its prompt repair. This was typical of her helpful approach: unintrusive but available if needed. We couldn't have asked for more.

  • "Brilliant location for lovers of unspoilt west coast scenery."

    The secret beach was fabulous for adults and children alike with sand all day. We saw plenty of birds but fewer than we used to years ago. The house has a very spacious living/dining room overlooking the loch. The directions need to be improved. Both we and our son coming from the Corran Ferry and Strontian drove past it. From the ferry the track entrance is around 50 metres past Wildwood which has a clear sign. The Clearwater name is on a stone (not boulder size) under a taller sign saying Roman Lodge.

  • "Absolutely stunning location on the Loch, amazing views from the house and garden."

    The house is lovely and very well equipped. Beautiful beaches close at hand - especially the extremely secluded beach just a short walk through the woods. We used the house as a base to explore and visit the islands of Skye Mull, Eigg and Rum - scenery breathtaking - it really is Big Country and really has to be seen to be properly experienced - we would go back to Clearwater in a flash, a really lovely place.

  • "Brilliant location, absolutely stunning!"

    Amazing views, beaches and walks. The house is very comfortable and spotlessly clean.

  • "The location was superb and the cottage was of a generally high standard."

    However, the stay was marred by the fact that the shower in the family bathroom did not work. It only had scalding hot water or cold, there was no adjustment. The dial was turned as far as it would go on the hot side when we arrived. The en-suite shower was heated separately and the hot water ran out after 2 showers. Due to water heating restrictions, there was insufficient hot water for a family. On some days, members of the party went without a wash or there was no hot water to wash the dishes as neither could be undertaken with the hot water resources we had. There was a hot water boost switch but it took 2 hours for the water to heat. It was not possible to contact the owner as there was no mobile signal. There was no address to allow us to visit. We were not met by anyone nor did anyone call to greet us so the issue could be resolved during the stay.

    I have made a courtesy call today to the holiday makers who have rented following your departure last Saturday. They have no problem with the power shower in the bathroom and no other issues with hot water in the shower room or kitchen. Our personal telephone number is stated in the welcome book and we are available 24 hours a day. There is WIFI in the house and mobile signal is available on the roads out of Roshven. Contact could also be made with Sykes who would contact us by phone and email. We have always respected the privacy of our holiday makers and not made contact but perhaps we will review this for the future; thank you for this feedback. Property Owner
