“Great cottage with beautiful views”
Reviewed April 19, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for 1 week at beginning of April. The cottage is well equipped and beds very comfortable. The views from the sun room are amazing - even when the weather is not so great.
The cottage is in a small community of houses around 5 miles along a very twisty single track road from Torridon. It is a beautiful location but because it is so far away (and the shop in Torridon is very poorly stocked) you need to take all food with you. We had arranged for click & collect at Tesco in Inverness before arrival - but I had not accounted for there being no food supplies at all in the house - ie no salt / pepper / cooking oil etc. First cottage I have ever stayed in where there is nothing! So please be aware. The cottage does have limited supplies of hand soap / toilet roll / dishwasher detergent etc and this is clearly explained in the information given on booking so we were prepared.
There are walks directly from the cottage which is great - we walked part of the way to Daibaig one day which was beautiful - and another day we walked back from Torridon to the house. Again a beautiful walk. The guys had their mountain bikes so made the most of the tracks around Torridon to get some good downhill runs in.
We ate at the Gille Brighde twice (very nice but limited menu). Torridon Inn once (food good but service dreadful) as well as the Applecross Inn and the Coastal Kitchen at Shieldaig. Seafood was fantastic!
All in all we had a very enjoyable week at Ben View.

“Fantastic house & location”
Reviewed March 20, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This was our second time to Ben View with friends to celebrate a 60th Birthday and it didn't disappoint, every bit as fabulous as our first adventure there.
Ben View is a spacious, very well appointed property with 360 degree views of the beautiful Highland west coast.
Very comfortable beds with fresh linen, spacious bedrooms and great sized bathrooms. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook, even bake !!
Super dining room seating 10 in comfort .
There are games, books and toys for kiddies.
The garden is wonderful, big and grassy with outdoor seating for summer days. Plenty room to play ball, sunbathe or just lol about in a deckchairs admiring the views to the sound of the lapping waves.
Already were thinking when to book our next trip here !!
It really is that good...honestly, you will not be disappointed if you book Ben View. I can safely say that you'll want to return !
I'll mention also the Claire the owner is a delight to correspond with, and very helpful.
Thank you Claire from all of us, we love Ben View

“fantastic house in fantastic spot”
Reviewed September 27, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

everything was perfect. The house is a very spacious house, very comfortable in a beautiful place( there is a piano also).There are beautiful walks around. The small shop in Torridon provides what you've forgotten to buy at a larger store before arriving.

“Great Holiday at Ben View”
Reviewed June 30, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Super place to stay for hill walking in Torridon. Beautiful spacious house with good quality furnishing and equipment. Could not be faulted. We had fabulous weather during the week with temperatures reaching 27C. Every single member of our party was impressed with the house and its setting.
