- Very Good
“Absolutely stunning area and views”
The cottage was excellent and could not be faulted. For a group of mountaineers, more used to staying at climbing huts, the extra space made so much difference and having TV, a Jacuzzi and internet made it a real home from home. Every one of us were hooked on the area. and gutted when it was time to leave. There is so much to explore, that we are talking about a return visit. For those into the outdoors, the mountains are immensely impressive all within a relatively short distance. Wildlife enthusiasts would not be disappointed either.
