A truly lovely spot, and the cottage met our expectations in every respect! Really comfortable and welcoming, just the right amount of space and a fabulous place to come to for our first grandchild's first holiday. The O Neill family August 2013
This is a really lovely house with breathtaking surroundings and millions of sights to see. We love the innocent sheep next to our garden and the many hares and rabbits that visit in the evenings.
Look out for Buzzards and Golden Eagles as we've seen them. Hannah (aged 10) August 2013
Our third stay and we are still so happy to have visited. What a relaxing, comfortable holiday. We ate well, drank local products and relaxed so much... a fantastic stay and not our last. Farasans (October 2012)
Wall to wall sunshine - lovely week. House as tidy and accommodating as usual. Admired Alistair's choughs in the barn but missed the tame hare. Thank you Hester and Family. George appreciated the cot and high chair. Pegrams May 2012
Lovely cottage, comfy beds, well-equipped kitchen, wonderful washing machine, laundry dry in a jiffy. Christoph July 2012
So impressed with the cottage and situation. First two days weather has been stunning. Plenty of walking and had the most amazing last day on the beach at Machir Bay in brilliant sunshine. The females of the group paddled in the sea. A wonderful week was had by all. Hope to return. Donnellys and Flemings July 2012
