Present a perfect relaxing and homely feeling. Views are amazing from the living room glass window. Very much enjoyed our break.
It was warm - we were winter guests - and cosy. Everything was clean and in working order. We loved the shower. I do feel new pillows are in order, though. Mine were not comfortable. Sorry I forgot to put the dishwasher on. I got it ready but forgot to press go.
30pm on our first day to a warm and lovely cottage. The rooms were so spacious and a nice welcome box of shortbread with a cup of coffee made the perfect start. We booked this cottage back in Nov 2021 so it was a long time coming but well worth the wait. The owner was very helpful by leaving the cottage ready for us to use without any key fussing or trying to locate things just fantastic week. The only down side was our departure day which was a freak of nature and the flooding around Scotland caused us to stop near a village in Loch Lomond as landslides and water in the road prevented us getting home so we had to sleep in our small car and get home the following day. A great week in the cottage spoilt by the journey home but we got back eventually. For any new customers going to this property you will not be disappointed and it has so many great views.
