  • "This is a lovely bungalow in a nice quite area and not far from the beautiful scenery in Scotland."

    The bungalow has everything you need and very clean and very comfortable but there was a big stain on the hallway carpet but that was not a problem for us but it doesn't look nice. Maybe use a carpet cleaner ?. The one thing that was very frustrating for us that there are NO Freeview channels whatsoever on the tv because there's no aerial erected. This was not indicated by Sykes cottages in the description or in the welcome pack at the property. I know this is not a major thing but evening times we do like to watch TV but on the plus side Netflix and BBC iPlayer was accessible via the built-in apps. Overall we had a wonderful time at this bungalow and we would return if they would install a aerial lol.
