We stayed at this cottage in February 2017 for a week. The cottage is lovely, well presented, and a great base to explore from.
We had no problems finding the property, from the instructions given and checking on Google maps we found it easily. When we arrived we were really pleased, as it was spacious, well designed and bigger than it looked in the photos.
We had originally booked for 2 people, and when we arrived only one of the 2 rooms was made up. We had changed our plans and had another couple with us for a night, so after looking round for some bedding and not finding any, we called the owner, and she was very friendly and directed us to the spare bedding for us to use. We could easily have been friends not a couple, so I would recommend to the owner to make both rooms up anyway. But our issue was easily resolved.
The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need, in fact, probably some of the stuff could be thrown away, as there was a lot of gadgets I doubt anyone uses! But it means that there was everything we needed to cook, which was great.
The full height hallway in the middle of the house makes it feel very spacious, and the living room and bedrooms are lovely cosy.
It was fairly bad weather for our week (not surprising being February in the Highlands!), but we had a great week exploring on our mountain bikes, and going to both the Aviemore area and Fort William area, so it was a great central location.
We enjoyed coming back to a lovely warm house, hanging out wet kit up in the large porch/utility, and cosying in by the wood burner with a film.
It is an amazingly quiet location, with easy access to the main road so not too isolated. At night we were amazed how dark it was with absolutely no light pollution.
This is a great base for a quiet break, with loads to explore close by.
