  • "Could really do with two chopping boards!"

  • "Had a lovely time there and the weather helped as it stayed dry most of the time."

    The cottage was very clean and well furnished and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The only disappointing thing was that I expected a cottage but I would have described it more as an apartment on top of some garages with access via a wooden staircase. Would go back there nonetheless, it was in a lovely setting.

    The two together were the perfect location, combining tranquility with accessibility, with lovely grounds an exceptional standard of decor and maintenance. The facilities manager lives just next door and was very helpful with any queries. We have already book this venue again for later in the year for a similar event and can't wait to return.

    Perfect for a couple. Larger than it looks from the photos. Very clean and neat without the usual Scottish tourist brochures scattered everywhere. Tasteful decor and free from signage, just like a home from home. John (the manager, lives nearby) an excellent host. Highly recommended

  • "The flat is absolutely stunning and was a delight to stay in."

    It is literally next to a waterfall, which you can gently hear through your stay. There is a little bridge over the stream straight into the woodland, which was perfect for walking our dog every morning. The flat itself is beautifully furnished, and was perfect for collapsing each day after a walk in the nearby glens. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need equipment-wise, and the sofa and bed are very comfortable. Would highly recommend and look forwards to coming back sometime soon!

    Was concerned at first as Lodge being near but no problems with privacy. Grounds are amazing and very secluded. Very peaceful after long days exploring Highlands. Host was brilliant so nice and friendly who lived nearby within walking distance. My parents want to stay there now after our visit. Perfect for couples and dog friendly.
