The house overlooks the sea, offering stunning sunsets and views of Skye, Harris and Lewis and the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights in winter. The Beinn Eighe Reserve and the Torridon Mountains are just a short distance away from the numerous sandy beaches and bays which are located around Melvaig, Gairloch and Red Point.

We visited Rona cottage in February and saw the most amazing sun sets, Aberdeen angus cow's, sheep, deer which came up right outside the garden of the cottage also goats and deer close by. Although at that time of year you wouldn't expect to see dolphins and whales we're very certain that they are there as we visited a nearby beach at Dundonell.

The description of the cottage is very accurate we felt at home straight away, it was clean and tidy with all the mod cons, cooker, dish washer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Rona is exceptionally well maintained.

Frank and Dianne live two cottages away from Rona and were there to greet us when we arrived, even if we were a little late!

You will need a car for this cottage as there is a 20 mile round trip to the nearest shop along a single track road with passing places not to mention the sheep and cows who casually walk along the road daily.

You can visit the lighthouse and beaches or drive into Gairloch for something to eat or visit the churches and take walks up to the Flowerdale waterfall.

In the summer you can go whale/dolphin spotting on tour boats or go further afield and visit one or all of the isles just off the coast of the mainland or sit in Rona's living room and gaze over the Minch Sea at the isles whilst the sun is setting.

We would recommend Rona to family and friends and we were sorry that we had to go home at the end of our stay. Don't forget to pack your kids and your dog, as they are welcome too.

Sehr schönes Haus mit wunderbarem Meeresblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben hier eine erholsame Woche verleben können, in einer in direkter Umgebung eher unaufgeregten Landschaft, geradezu abgeschieden, wohltuend beruhigend für das gestresste Städtergemüt. Und wir haben allen Unkenrufen unserer Freunde zum Trotz großen Teils sehr schönes Wetter gehabt mit viel Sonne und zeitweise fast spiegelglatter See.

Das absolute Highlight ist das Ferienhaus mit seiner sehr gemütlichen aber nicht plüschigen Einrichtung, alles sehr geschmackvoll, hell und in warmen Tönen gut aufeinander abgestimmt; die Küchenausstattung perfekt. Und alles sehr,sehr sauber. Nützlich die Heizung, denn die Abenden waren dann doch recht kühl. Keine deutschen TV-Sender, aber darauf konnten wir auch gerne verzichten. Internet leider etwas schwach, war aber in dieser abgeschiedenen Gegend auch nicht anders zu erwarten.

Sehr schön auch die vielen großen Fenster rundherum, und das „i-Tüpfelchen“ der wunderbare Ausblick vor allem vom Wohnzimmerfenster auf die weite Wasserfläche von The Minch und hinüber zur Bergkette von Skye und ganz in der Ferne noch die Hebriden auszumachen.

Die geschäftliche Abwicklung über die Vermietungsagentur sehr professionell.
