"A warm welcome in the Highlands"
Tigh Tasgaidh is a beautiful house in a stunning location, it makes a perfect base for exploring the local area and the Isle of Skye is merely a 15 min drive away.
The house has all the amenities you would need and is a joy to return to after a long day out.The bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen is very spacious, the jewel in the crown is the lovely lounge which is a perfect place to relax and affords lovely views of the mountains.
Louise is a lovely hostess who cannot do enough for you, she was on hand to offer advice about the local area and trips out and she obviously takes the comfort and well being of her guests very seriously.
A wonderful house and hostess, cannot recommend it enough.

"Fantastic apartment and location, given a warm welcome!"
We had an excellent week here. the accommodation was spacious, well equipped and spotless. The gardens are splendid, we especially enjoyed sitting out in the front garden, enjoying the view and the warm sunshine (amazing!)
We were given a warm welcome by Louise who was attentive to our needs, including home baked scones and fresh eggs! There is loads to see and do and this part of the world is quite stunning.
