It was amazing place to stay with great views. The owner was really nice said if needed anything then just to pop over to him.
This is a beautiful log cabin. It has everything you could need, was beautifully clean and in fabulous condition. We took the dog and the garden was large and safe for him. We would definitely recommend.
Komfortables sauberes Haus in der Nähe des Meeres. Tolle Küstenabschnitte in der Nähe. Netter Vermieter. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der unmittelbaren Nähe etwas eingeschränkt. Sehr erholsam dort:
Lovely, well-presented cabin that was warm and cosy. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Has everything you could need from self-catering accomodation and is in a great location where a number of fantastic sights are accessible by a short drive. Our dog enjoyed his stay too!
Beautiful part of the world and the location of the cabin allowed us to access fantastic beaches and forests and walks. We had great meals out too. The Pier at Lairg is a must!
We loved our stay at Taigh Fiodha - we have 7 and 5 year old children and a dog, and found it a great base to go out and about - easy access to Inverness, Black Isle, Dornoch, plenty of good places locally to grab a bite to eat, loads of scope for taking the dog for a walk. Owners were very helpful - welcomed us on arrival and responded immediately to any queries. One thing to watch though....in our more cashless world, we found it a bit of a chore to find £1 coins for the meter on which the heating runs and ran out on a couple of occasions - best to save these up or pay a visit to a bank before the start of the holiday!
