  • "The cottage gave us everything we needed, real home from home."

    The owner had left us a very generous welcome hamper and milk in the fridge which was really appreciated. The location was ideal for exploring the Lowlands and the garden was delightful with the added bonus of the Loch. With our dog we had a most enjoyable week of exploring and walking, highly recommended !
