  • "It was great staying in the toll house."

    I have past this building many times as my family comes from Arderseir. The Toll House is an excellent centre for a holiday, the scenery is beautiful and the sunsets from the kitchen window what ever the weather is dramatic. My friends who also stayed who have never been in the Highlands were really impressed with the accommodations and the area. Hopefully we will be able to stay in the Toll House again it is an unusual and lovely house to stay in.

  • "Property was set in a perfect position."

    Dairy herd in the field, which when eating at the kitchen table you can watch closely. Lovely garden with views of sea and birds. We enjoyed the many extra details included, and would recommend this cottage to everyone, cheese shop is a must visit, just across from the property. Only slight drawback is that Sykes show the departure time as 11am, but it is actually 10am. Book this cottage and enjoy a fabulous stay.

  • "Property is lovely inside, with great views across the firth."

    The main bedroom and kitchen with its big windows are great for storm watching! Fully recommend this property as a place to stay. Main folder needs a bit of updating with respect to wi-if log on code. Excellent service from the property managers, I accidentally locked myself out of the property on the sunday evening and they immediately got me a spare set of keys.

  • "The property is beautiful and where it is located, me and my family had a lovely stay at the property and would highly recommend it."

    The only recommendations I have would be to look at some garden furniture, updating some of the kitchen pot/pans. The house needs a bit of a deep clean as the property was a little dusty and the sofa needs a update too or a deep clean. Other than that we loved our stay.

  • "What a fantastic little cottage a great base to explore the Highlands."

    Had everything we needed as a family of 5 to cook with (just missing a measuring jug and wisk!) The 2 village shops have most essentials and the dairy across the road is amazing.. Fresh milk and milkshakes available through their duty automated kiosk 7-7 every day. The dogs were not massive fans of the cows on the back field, kids loved seeing them. Definitely well worth a stay.. We loved it.

  • "The place is so beautiful."

    The caretaker, Marcus, has been extremely helpful and made the stay memorable. The garden is a great size and the fence allowed our dogs to run freely. The cheese place nearby was amazing. Fantastic views and atmosphere.
