"A very comfortable and relaxing cottage"
We found the bungalow to be very comfortable, relaxing and convenient. Goes without saying it is well maintained, clean and very approachable. After a very long and tiring day in the highlands, we looked forward to come back and just hit the bed and surprisingly even after just six seven hours sleep, we found ourselves to wake up fully charged up for another day. Did'nt realize 3 days passed in a snap and it was time to go. Liz and Gregor made every effort to make sure we had a good time and even covered the pond so that my little daughter was safe to play in the garden. Would definitely love to come back and that might not be far away in future.
