We've had a lovely week in this fab cottage. Cosiest cottage we've been in and fantastic location. Would definitely come again.

John & Nicci, Belford, Northumberland

Cottage was very comfortable and we appreciated the welcome milk, flowers, wine, etc. We enjoyed Calum's Seal Boat Trip from Plockton, Eilean Donan Castle, road to Applecross, etc. Waterside Café and Carron Restaurant excellent with very friendly service. Train to Kyle also well worth it.
