The cottage was clean well equipped and very comfortable. It was close to Drumbeg shop and cafe and the road in and out to it is spectacular. Finally the wild life literally comes to the door, red deer every evening, seals and herons in the bag and buzzards overhead.

A superb property in a quiet location with wildlife that come right up to the door. The trip along the road to get there can be tiring, especially if you end up doing it a few times. However, as long as you are aware and accept this, you couldnt ask for a nicer place to be. We were really lucky with our weather which made the scenery even more specRead moretacular. Hide

The property is located in the wild. It has lovely surroundings but few services nearby. So it is a good place for a quiet getaway. Some days we had 10 deer in the garden when we woke and 4 days out of seven there were deer nearby. There is a pair of buzzards on the hill at the back
