5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed in The Stables for six nights in August 2012. Can't say enough wonderful things about this propery. Spotlessly clean. Very large rooms. A wonderful welcome pack. Free wifi. Very quiet even though most of the other properties were occupied. A wonderful place to explore the highlands from. The view from bedrooms was magnificent. more
