  • "This is now our favourite holiday destination."

    The house was absolutely beautiful, it had plenty of space and everything we needed. The view was amazing! Angus was incredibly helpful with anything we needed help with. I can't wait to go back!! Thanks again for a fantastic holiday.

  • "We loved staying at Mullach Ruadh."

    We were only here for a week but wished it was longer. There is everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. It’s very warm and inviting. The driveway is a bit of a challenge but not impossible. There’s plenty to see in the area and great that it’s walking distance to the viaduct, railway station and loch cruises. Good walks from the door. There aren’t any supermarkets or pubs nearby (hotel with bar next door) so you need to bring plenty of food supplies with you.

  • "I would like to say what a wonderful stay me and my family had at Mullach Ruadh."

    The house was extremely well-appointed, spotlessly clean, and with very good facilities. It was situated in spectacularly beautiful scenery. When we arrived Angus the caretaker, had thoughtfully provided some Scottish shortbread, and throughout our stay he was readily available if we needed to ask him something, and very helpful. We would certainly return to Mullach Ruadh, and would be more than happy to recommend it.

  • "Amazing property in an incredibly beautiful part of the world."

    It is the best equipped holiday house we have ever been to. It was cosy and warm and provided a perfect base to explore the local area. Angus greeted us on arrival and was incredibly friendly and helpful and the house was clean and beautifully presented. We would thoroughly recommend this property and area to everyone, particularly if you are Harry Potter fans but the area has something for everyone as there is so much beauty and history for everyone to enjoy. We visited the viaduct regularly to watch the train, enjoying the walk from the house through Glenfinnan station to make the most of the views of the loch. We took a boat trip on Loch Shiel and went for a swim in the loch on a quiet afternoon. We took the normal train to Mallaig, so we could travel over the viaduct, drove to Fort Augustus for lunch and a great view of Loch Ness, visited Foyer Falls on the east side of Loch Ness, some of our group climbed Ben Nevis one day and we all enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Ben Nevis Inn, we would recommend it all, all enjoyed through rain and sun, just a fantastic week, we would love to do it all again. Thank you for a wonderful week.

  • "We had a glorious week at Mullach Ruadh."

    The house itself was everything we hoped for - spacious, well equipped, comfortable and with the most fantastic views from the decking and garden areas. Close enough to Fort William for supermarkets and fuel we had day trips to Skye, boat trips on Loch Shiel, enjoyed picnics at Loch Arkaig and spotted eagles deer and ospreys from the house. Angus the caretaker was friendly and helpful and was quickly on hand to rectify a small plumbing issue. We can't quite believe how lucky we were with the weather but even if it had rained we would have been very happy with our holiday at Mullach Ruadh -

  • "Excellent cottage in a great location, about 15 minutes walk from the Glenfinnan Viaduct."

    We enjoyed watching the trains go past every day and although the cottage is off the main road, it is high up, so we didn't notice the traffic at all. The property is very well kitted out and the quality of everything is superb, high quality duvets, pillows, crockery etc. Angus, the caretaker, left a welcoming note, with shortbread and flowers and called in to check that everything was fine when we arrived. Whilst there are no shops in Glenfinnan, other than at the visitor centre, we had food delivered from the supermarket in Fort William and then picked up additional supplies when we were out and about. Would have no hesitation in returning, a fantastic place to stay.

    Driveway is only thing that causes inconvenience if incapacitated in any way. Caretaker very helpful and pleasant

    Thank you and very good observation. When we bought the house, we had exactly the same thought. As a result, we added the staircase from the car park as an alternative to walking up the steep hill. Hope you otherwise had a lovely time at our wee home. Property Owner

    The Jacobite (Hogwarts) Express steam train runs quite close to the rear of the house during the high season, great for the children, and the Glenfinnan Viaduct is just a short walk away. There are plenty of nice walks close by. The caretaker, Angus, is very helpful, friendly and easily available if needed.

  • "A beautiful property which has been designed and decorated very nicely."

    It did the photos on the website justice and was a very welcoming experience when first walking in - let's face it some holiday lets leave a lot to be desired. A nice relaxing lounge with plenty of seating space plus the small snug area for the younger family to play games. The kitchen was well laid out with virtually every utensil possible and plenty of towels and tea towels etc . The beds, pillows and duvets were extremely comfortable and of good quality as were the lovely thick and soft towels. Everything seemed to have been thought about and provided - from cleaning cloths in the kitchen down to face wipes in the bathrooms. If we had any negative point to make it would be the lack of clothes hanging space in one of the bedrooms - it just had drawers. This is a very minor criticism in what was otherwise a perfect and lovely place to stay. Would highly recommend

  • "Mullach Ruadh is a beautiful holiday house for enjoying family time together."

    It's one of the best-equipped houses we have ever stayed in. The fresh flowers, wine, and chocolates were a lovely welcome treat and very much appreciated. So was the bag of ice in the freezer. The house is perfectly positioned for many stunning local walks and it was fun to wave at the steam train passengers from the windows at the back of the house. Our kids loved it when the passengers waved back! The log stove was a highlight in the evenings when we snuggled up for our movie nights. A top quality house in a superb location. Stunning.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Mullach Ruadh."

    The house is very comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen is particularly well stocked with cooking utensils/trays etc. Beds were huge with comfy bedding, plenty of bathrooms. The WiFi set-up was complicated with three networks. It would have been useful to have cards with the network codes in each room.

    Probably by saying that this has got to be one of the most amazing and luxurious properties we have ever rented, and we have stayed in many ! We had the honour of being the first visitors to this property, and what treat we were in for ! The bedrooms are exqusitely furnished with the best bedding, the en-suites are fantastic, the main sitting area is large and comfortable, and there is a cosy snug area equipped with a TV and games. The views from the front to the nearby mountains are un-obstructed and beautiful. The kitchen is absolutely stunning, and is equipped with the highest quality utensils and everything you ever need. If you love cooking you'll love this kitchen. All in all a fantastic property with such close attention to detail makes it a wonderful, cosy and comfortable stay.

    As for the property we were absolutely delighted with it. It is modern, homely, comfortable, well-equipped and possesses stunning views. We found it to be spotlessly clean and a credit to all involved. We will definitely be back at some stage in the future. If all LHH properties are this good we will be booking with you again somewhere different next year. Please feel free to pass these comments on to the property owner.

    This time we stayed a week and again could not fault this property. Everything was perfect and there is nothing more we can add over and above our glowing comments after our first stay. This is a fantastic area to explore. Within easy reach of Fort William to Mallaig and the Ferries to the Isles there is plenty to see and do. Full marks to LHH who pulled out all the stops which allowed us to book this stay at very short notice.

  • "Good afternoon from the islands of Bermuda."

    .. Just would like to thank the owner of the property for having such a comfortable and high standard of rental property. The house was more than we expected, in fact it was well above expectations. Clean, efficient, and well stocked for all weathers. The property was well maintained, with all of the best of equipment from washing machine to heating. The housekeeper made it especially welcoming with a bottle of wine and some shortcake. After our group came direct from New York and Vancouver, and then driving from Edinburgh and getting to the property late at night, it was so welcoming to find a home we were very comfortable in and found to be very friendly to guests. Thank you, and I will be sending an email to the owner to thank him personally for allowing us to use his beautiful home...
