Stayed here in July/August for 1 week. Absolutely stunning location AND a tastefully decorated and beautifully maintained cottage. We all felt very much at home as soon as we arrived and loved the solitude and amazing views from the windows. Ardechive cottage is very well presented and has all the amenities you could possibly need - which is just as... More

100% Clean, perfectly cosy! This is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. The owners have thought of everything and the place was immaculate. We loved it...could have spent the week in the cottage! Great location by the side of the loch with loads of walks and things to do....simply perfect.

I was on a hiking holiday with 4 friends for over a week trough the scottish highlands. At our last day we had to walk over 20 kilometers along Loch Arkaig with a non stop rain on our heads. We were out of range of our map and asked at the first house we saw at the end of the... More

We booked Ardechive for the Easter period for the whole family including Grandma & Granddad who love their walking. The booking process was quick and easy and everyone we dealt with was friendly and courteous at all times. Grandma & Granddad arrived at the cottage on Sunday and we followed up later on in the week on the Wednesday. The... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here for a week in February 2014. Lots of great walks around the hills and forests nearby and the road to the end of Loch Arkaig provides a challenging cycle. Loads of wildlife and was fortunate to spot an eagle in full flight. The cottage has everything that is needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay... More

Just had an amazing time with friends over 5 days, at this beautiful cottage in the highlands along side Loch Arkaig. The first thing we saw as we entered the glen were majestic red stags at the side of the road. - no need for binoculars here! The warm and cosy cottage at Ardechive is newly refurbished and has everything... More

We have just had the most amazing stay at Ardechive. The house is amazing with a fantastic position and wonderful views across the loch. Everything was so tidy and perfectly organised for our arrival. Equipped with everything you could possibly need and designed so cleverly and tastefully. It is the perfect place to stay and to enjoy in full all... More

The cottage is beautiful & certainly big enough for a family of 4 plus a dog. Scotland's B roads seem to be windy roads with passing points (which I hadn't realised). This cottage is about 30 mins along such a road. Given that the road is a dead end - about another 13 miles on from the cottage, I was... More

A truly wonderful weeks holiday with the kids (5, 11 and 12). The cottage was really well equipped and of a very high standard, it really does have everything you could possibly need. It even has a wood burner for chilly nights and a drying room if you get a muddy and wet. A wonderful location to go for long... More

Stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of July. Location was ideal, close enough to shops for supplies but remote enough to be very quiet and relaxing. Kennels supplied with sky tv, snooker table and dishwasher. Weather was incredible and spent days walking and cycling in the nearby hills and then relaxing in the beautiful surroundings beside the loch.
