“A happy return.”
Reviewed 17 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This was my second visit to Academy Apartment and I would hope to return again one day. The apartment is clean and spacious with all that is required for a relaxing stay. The view from the sitting room window is breath taking. For the sake of modesty, I wish bath sheets were provided as opposed to a bath towel......it barely covered my rather rounded frame. The apartment is highly recommended.

Many thanks Anne - I'm really pleased you enjoyed your return visit. And point taken about the bath towels - I'll make sure I get the bigger ones when renewing for next year.

“Wonderful visit ”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had an excellent stay in this delightful apartment. The breathtaking views were ever changing and we saw some amazingly beautiful scenery. The local people were very welcoming and the owner was very very helpful. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again. Thanks Katrina for a wonderful opportunity to stay in a magical place!

My husband and I stayed at this lovely flat for the 2nd September break in a row.The owner Katrina is a personal friend and her sense of style and attention to detail make this flat a lovely place to stay, very comfortable and relaxing.There are a couple of good shops nearby, the best being the Coop just down the brae..5 minutes by foot..with everything you need to rustle up a meal and eat it at the corner table, whilst enjoying the view over the water.Comfortable beds and plenty of utensils,candles for atmosphere, dvd and books for rainy days.Our only small comment would be, the doors tend to stick a little, so best to leave them slightly open,particularly if you don't want to wake folks in the next room.However this is just a small thing..I will be back there in 2 weeks, we love it!!

Thanks Rhona so pleased you all enjoyed your stay again second time around. Very valid comment about the doors - ever since I got new carpets laid earlier in the year they've been sticking. I'll get that seen to in the usual round of winter maintenance tasks. Fingers crossed for some dry and bright weather for your October stay!
