The kitchen is well equipped with hob, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and all of the equipment needed to self cater in comfort (e.g. blender, cafetiere, small thermos flask and knife sharpener). The bedrooms are light and airy with a king-size bed in one room and a twin in the other. The french doors in the living room give access to the walled patio area facing the Lochan where there is a paved area with seating. Guests have access to a gym with strength and conditioning equipment, a 5/6 person traditional sauna, a golf practice area, a games room (with a table football table, playstation and various other games) and mountain bikes to borrow on a first come first saved basis. Guests are also free to borrow a BBQ, take ice from the ice machine, or make use of the communal laundry room for a wash or dry at a small cost. The price includes towels and linen, and a large basket of logs for the wood burning stove, but excludes electricity which you pay by honesty box and card meter in your cottage (we make no profit from this charge). The cottage was extensively and sympathetically renovated in late 2017 including: new Hypnos mattress, complete internal re-painting, new/improved lighting, new internal oak doors, new carpets, new curtains, new soft furnishings and pictures and a new fleet of mountain bikes.More

An excellent small cosy cottage, really clean and well presented, very well stocked with everything you'd need including logs, firelighters, and a kitchen well equipped. Very dog and child friendly in beautifully kept grounds. Owners super friendly and helpful.

We love the cottages and come every two years. They are cosy and well kitted out. The new beds are very comfortable and the sound proofing means you can't really hear the A9 at all. No sign of the water voles this year but we...More
