“Nicely located - maybe need a bit of update”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The cottage is located a bit outside of Fort Augustus, which is a great thing when you can see how popular this place can be, especially in the summer time.
It's in a quiet place, near multiple paths into the woods.
There is a park a bit down the road where our children could play.

The cottage has everything except a dishwasher, but everything is working fine.
It just feel that it's a bit outdated and the beds weren't top notch. It's ok for a week, but after a week in Skye in a great updated cottage, we felt the difference immediately.

Now, again, it's nicely located, it's quiet, and you stay there for a week or so.
I'd like to thank John and Debby for their great reactivity and communication.
Thanks!!

Hi Jerome,
Thank you your comments, we are aware of the beds and they will be replaced in the near future, they would have been replaced sooner if it wasn't for the recent replacement of the cooker and three piece suite.

Kind regards

“Lovely cottage, great location”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Comfortable cottage in a great location for touring and walking close to Fort Augustus and Loch Ness. Just needs updating (furniture, kitchen equipment, cooker) to make it great and it would be nice if towels, or at least a hand towel were provided.

“Very comfortable accommodation in quiet area”

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable and very well equipped accommodation. It is in a quiet area only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Fort Augustus. We particularly enjoyed using the large conservatory and watching the various birds on the feeders. There are walks straight from the property and it is convenient for the Great Glen Way. The Inverness to Fort William bus passes through Fort Augustus and is useful for doing parts of the Way, or a day out in these two destinations. Fort Augustus has shops, a garage and plenty of eateries. There's so much to do in the area so we'll be returning to this accommodation.

Hi, thank you for your feedback, we are sorry there was no one to meet you on your arrival at our cottage, as we live some distance away we wouldn't be able to do this ourselves but we are only a phone call away and could have arranged our house keeper to call in on you to to make sure everything was okay.
In future we will point this out when we send out the final documents.

Sorry we can't do much about the weather.

Kind regards

Hi, Thank you for your feedback, we are looking into replacing the table with something a bit larger but we must also point out that although you asked if we would accept a 7th person to sleep on a camp bed, the property is listed as suitable for 6 persons.
