wonderfull autentic cottage!
Beautiful authentic cottage on a quiet unique place in beautiful wooded surroundings. Reasonably complete furnishings. no internet(but almost no where in Scotland), also no tv antenna, but dvd player so on rainy moments did look at. The wi-fi and tv not missed.; Wonderful quiet. We certainly hope to come back again!
Abgelegenes und ruhiges Ferienhaus
Schönes und altes Gatehouse, abgelegen an einer Single Track Road. Die Einrichtung ist traditionell. Man hat sich teilweise wie in einer kleinen Burg gefühlt. Leider gab es viele Spinnen und Spinnenweben an den Fenstern, sowie kleine bis mittelgroße Käfer.
Really nice stay with our family!
The house is perfect for a cosy stay in the eastern Higlands. We went mountainbiking, fishing and saw the Castel of dunrobin. The house lies remote but not to far from shops to get everything you need.
We had a great week.
Agréable à vivre
Location dans l'ensemble plaisante , calme dans un très joli environnement mais surpris de son isolement par rapport au premier village
la localisation de la maison est assez compliquée à trouver la première fois , et surtout la clé de la porte , il faudrait plus de précision pour la découvrir
Concernant l’intérieure la literie est excellente et les appareils ménagers complets
Salle de bains ,toilettes : Dans la salle des toilettes du bas une prise électrique serait très utile ( rasage , seche cheveux )
Dans celle du haut le réglage de la douche est pratiquement impossible à obtenir
mais nous avons passé un superbe séjour
Only 54 minutes away is the clean Embo Beach in Dornoch, which is on the East coast of the Scottish Highlands. There is also a large selection of beautiful coast along the West such as Scourie and Lochinver which are also about 50 minutes away. Also on the way to the West Coast you can drive past the beautiful and serene Loch Assynt with its eerie and ghostly history. There is also the Old Man of Stoer which is 1:10 hours drive and offers a spectacular walk on the cliffs overlooking the sea.
