The cottage is beautiful, and in a beautiful location. Nothing could be done differently, we loved the stay. For anyone planning to stay, the location is stunning, and of course Loch Ness is amazing, but walks around Loch Miechle, only 3 mins away, are absolutely beautiful, and we could have happily spent all our time there.

We have stayed at various places/locations in Scotland over the last 30 years but this one way surpasses all of them. The ratings above only go to five but every single one, in truth should be higher. We thank the owners and their friends at the hotel for providing such a high standard, the weather was also fantastic only a few midges to contend wiRead moreth. Hide

Had a lovely week here. Cottage has everything you need. All cooking equipment you need, and very comfy beds. Plenty of space inside and out for dog. As others have said, can't walk straight from cottage as there's a main road once down the driveway, but a couple of minutes drive away there are plenty of walks. Co-op, takeaways, pub and cafe, less Read morethan 10 mins drive away. Beautiful views sitting in the garden and from the large lounge window. Nice to have the dining room too. Lovely Holiday. Hide
