  • "Unfortunately the dishwasher wasn’t working it looked like a button used to set program was missing."

    As there were only 2 of us this was not a problem

  • "On arrival did not seem bad but then."

    The ceiling in the bathroom had black mould growing in a corner. Then I had to chisel the freezer door and draws just to open them and found more ice than storage space. The dishwasher was not usable as the program button was missing so some bare electrical contacts were showing. The microwave turntable did not operate. There was supposed to be a DVD player, there was not one. And the icing on the cake was the beds!!! We were going to sleep in the two single beds as there was more room than the double but the springs stuck in us so much it was impossible so we made do with the double. This was pretty uncomfortable too so I thought I would try turning the mattress over. When I did what I discovered made me feel ill. It was absolutely filthy and covered in urine stains!!!!! I have seen better on council dumps. We went and purchased two sleeping bags so we could sleep on top of the duvet but come Wednsday the thought of what might be under us and could stand no more and we packed up and left. I do have photos of all I have mentioned above and will be contacting Sykes

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fersit Log Cottage."

    The views from the cottage are beautiful and the garden is enclosed so dogs can have a run around. I was looking for a weekend away in the wilds – a place where you could just open the gate and start your adventure, so the cottage was perfect. The surrounding moors, hills, loch and mountains are stunning and there is so much to explore on the doorstep. Fersit Log Cottage makes you feel at home instantly: it's comfortable, cosy, roomy and there's decking, so you can also sit outside. We loved it here and we're already thinking about a return trip. Thank you so much for our goodies on arrival – that was a lovely touch.

  • "Brilliant location for hill- walking with 4 Munros and a Graham accessible from the cottage itself, others just a short drive away."

    The cottage is very private and secluded and has a great view to nearby hills. It was lovely and quiet and peaceful. The accommodation is surprisingly spacious with plenty of room to dry out wet gear in the porch. It was also well- heated and there was no need to use the wood-burning stove. It was a the perfect refuge after enduring a tough day on the hills. The wifi was excellent and television worked well. The owners kindly left some ‘aperitifs’ which were very welcome!

  • "We had an amazing week at Fersit Log Cottage."

    Very rural location and very peaceful, so pleased we were in a 4x4 as we had heavy snow. Beautiful location, lovely walks. The property is well equipped- better than listed , very warm and comfortable. Great that it has a stock proof boundary for the dog.

  • "This cottage is delightful to stay at."

    It’s exactly what it claims to be. The noisiest thing is the woodpeckers in the trees which are so relaxing to listen to in a morning outside on the decking. Bar the odd lightbulb being out, everything was superb from start to finish. Many thanks, we will certainly be back. Simon & Karen and Eric the border collie

  • "The kitchen and hob lights require fixing, more initial information about the solar panels and the hot water would be useful."

    My son enjoyed a bath after our 10hr drive, unfortunately we had to wait until the next day to take a shower as there wasn't any hot water left, maybe install an electric shower so full use of the bathroom could be fully utilised, also some heat in the bathroom would be a bonus. Ignoring the previous comments Fersit was quite lovely and perfect for us, but we are not everybody. Fersit has received some quite negative reviews, these are unfounded from our experience. If you like remoteness, outstanding beauty, quietness and comfort then pack your walking boots and head to Fersit, Loch Treig is waiting. 100% we are returning to Fersit.

  • "We are approaching our 70s our travels have take us far and wide, we look for something that can deliver in terms of location, good quality accommodation, and top of the list peace and great walks from the door."

    We very nearly canceled after reading a review that was rather damning, I have since learnt that due to this covid crises the cleaning was affected due to staff shortage and a mix up. If you come across this review IGNORE. We have just had 8 days in the most comfortable warm clean log cabin. WONDERFUL VEIWS. WONDERFUL WALKS, WONDERFUL LOG CABIN. Forget driving for days out, stock up with food your fav tipple, book, paint brush on canvas and BLOODY ENJOY ITS A DREAM. To the owner and the people who look after Fersit log cottage THANK YOU.

  • "We loved the remoteness while feeling safe in our cabin."

    The location suited us perfectly, quite central allowing us to facilitate all our bucket list visits to the Scottish Highlands. Also impressed by the ease and suitability of accommodation for our two spaniel dogs. Really appreciated the reliable WiFi connection. Just in terms of 'even better if' it would have been beneficial to have fire lighters available for our arrival. It probably wasn't a cold evening but it felt that way after a 14 hour drive. Also, the vacuum cleaner isn't brilliant and cleanup would have been much more effective with a dry mop. Loved it and would highly recommend. Steve & Julie

    We were provided with a generous basket of goodies which included some delicious strawberry wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful remote location with many more opportunities to explore than we were able to in a single week.

Set over the ground floor, this inviting chalet-style property would be ideal for a family or group of friends who want to spread out and relax in the Scottish countryside.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living area, acting as the social hub of the property, here you can kick back on the sofa in front of the woodburning stove, reflecting on the day’s adventures and planning the next few days to come.
