Weve had a wonderful week in this very warm & cosy cottage,and were made very welcome by all the Estate staff we met. The cottage was immaculately clean, most reassuring in these pandemic times. There is no television (bliss!), but it had very fast internet connections. The well equipped bathroom is downstairs, a minor inconvenience for those with Read morenocturnal frequency. The surroundings are beautiful and so utterly peaceful. We shall definitely return to this idyllic spot. Hide

A comfortable cottage in the most magnificent setting in the hills, within a very well maintained and managed Estate offering great variety in walking, through hills, riverside, loch side and forest paths.

Great remote location, with plenty of tracks, lochs and hills to explore from the doorstep. Cottage appointed to a very high standard and could be very cosy in the winter. Estate workers very friendly and helpful.

We chose this cottage and location as part of my 60th Birthday celebrations and we couldn't have chosen a nicer location. Lovely and peaceful location. Cottage was spotlessly clean and the staff were wonderful. There was so much do do and see in the extensive grounds too. All in all, highly recommended.

The cottage is well maintained with every possible amenity you could want. It is very clean, comfortable and cosy. It is set is stunning surroundings and when night falls and the sky is clear that's when the magic happens - I've never seen stars like this until our stay at April cottage. We visited places like the Glenmorangie distillery and DunrobRead morein castle plus loads more but it was always a reward to get back to the cottage and relax with a bite to eat and a glass of red. We cannot recommend this estate highly enough it has to be experienced to appreciate it. Hide
