I celebrated my 30th birthday here with a small group of friends and the location and property were absolutely perfect, with everything you could ever need! The hosts were very helpful and provided all the info we would need and recommended some gorgeous walks. The location is truly breathtaking and I couldnt recommend the property more.

A beautiful house and location, but the kitchen is not suitable for the house. We are a family of 9 who love to eat and cook together and there was no storage for food and no work space to cook. The kitchen sink is too small to wash most dishes. Cupboard space is needed for food storage also

Beautiful house in stunning location. Dog friendly and very comfortable although a little chilly at night with no access to central heating.

Definitely stay here, it's absolutely stunning! The view over the loch is outstanding, there's lots of local walks to do and there's alpacas to feed a few houses away. We had the best week, sitting in the hot tub watching the boats and relaxing in the garden with a glass of wine. It's perfect.
