    Well appointed private lodges with floor to ceiling glass sliding doors giving magnificent sea views. Good beds, bedding and towels. Nice touch leaving a welcome pack including milk, bread, butter, eggs and a bottle of wine.

    Second visit after 3 years. Facilities show no sign of wear and tear, spotless and everything you could want from a self catering holiday. Wonderful location, beautiful views,despite the weather, ideal location for exploring the North of Scotland.
