What a truly wonderful place this is! In the middle of absolutely nowhere. The first thing I noticed in particular was that the cherry tree just near the door was teeming with cheerful, chirruping little birds. Mostly siskins and several chaffinches from what I could...More

We enjoyed your company too, Michael and look forward to welcoming you for a longer stay. If the weather's good, we have plenty of other hills to climb nearby and, if not, there is always the library and a pot of tea.

Good food, interesting and lots of flavour. Comfortable, homely atmosphere, with beautifully clean and comfortable bedrooms. Lovely views, with lots of wildlife, deer strolling around, birds darting everywhere. Far from anything and very peaceful.

Yes there is. From what I heard from a couple of English guys who come there every year the fishing in the loch is quite good. I'm more of a stream fisher, and that is VERY lacking, unless the owners are honest with you... More
