A great cottage. Roomy and very well equipped. Lovely big bathroom with powerful shower. Quality bedding was appreciated. Fabulous views all around and seeing the deer in the garden every morning and evening was fabulous. If you want a peaceful break away and be at one with nature this cottage Id highly recommend Oldany Farmhouse.

A fabulous farmhouse in a stunning location. Relatively close to all the sites you want to visit. But also far enough away from everything to feel calm, quiet, peaceful and relaxed. Clean. Comfortable. Spacious for a family of 4 (or 2 couples). Definitely want to book this farmhouse again.

A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. We used it as a base for hillwalking the spectacular Assynt hills: Quinag, Conival, Ben More Assynt & Suilven. We saw red deer in the garden and were spoilt for choice of wild swimming spots. The host was responsive to our phone call.
