Notes:
Electric is paid by meter reading. Please note the Estate is served by a private spring water supply that is untreated so boiled water notices are displayed in the properties for EU regulations. The water is naturally tinted brown from the peat. Private drainage so nothing that would cause a blockage to be flushed down the toilet. Other Estate properties to the side and rear of the cottage but still very private. Linens are provided for two persons. Linens charge £8 per additional person. Travel cot can be provided, no linens. Please note a cleaning charge of £35 per hour will be deducted from the good housekeeping deposit if the property is left in a dirty condition.

Peaceful, will be back.

  • 5 of 5

We booked a weekend at this cottage which turned out to be a few days after the first snow fall of the season, making for a very scenic arrival. We enjoyed a walk in the local area and down to the lochside, a couple of visits to the local village amongst other activities. This was just what we needed to give us a break from our daily lives.

Owner's Response: Its a shame when people don't read the information and expect something else when arriving. We have guests that book year after year because the cottage is exactly what they want, rural, peaceful and inexpensive their reviews say it all.

Quiet place

  • 3 of 5

It's a cut house.

We feel a little bit alone near the cottage. But we can see lot of animals.

The particular point is the bathroom

Owner's Response: We are please the guest liked the cottage and enjoyed the wildlife which is what we get because of the unspoilt area. Being next to the second largest ice age forest left in Scotland we get deer on the Estate every night. We also have a lot of wild rabbits that come near to the cottages. Some people from the cities find it a little isolated but any who love to get away from it all for a complete rest and enjoy the natural surrounding love the place.

Most peaceful and private break ever.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and myself chose this property for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and I can say without doubt it lived up to every one of our expectations. The cottage was beautiful, the surroundings were breathtaking and the privacy was without measure. I only hope we have the opportunity to return for a longer period of time. What was listed was what you got and much much more.

Many thanks to Malcolm and Julia for making our Anniversary a most memorable occasion.

Couldn't recommend this properly enough for a complete getaway from reality.

Very clean and quiet. Well-equipped for cooking. Comfortable beds. Cozy, if you're prepared.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with two young boys, 10 & 11. We live in a semi-rural location and so were prepared for the untreated water, septic system, and heating issues. It was chilly even though we stayed mid-summer, in June—or perhaps we are thinned-skinned Californians. We built a fire each night (get wood at the village store: much more efficient than electric heat), and settled in to read, chat, play games. The beds were very comfortable, we slept well.

We mostly ate in-house, but had one meal at the Macdonald House hotel across the lake. It was good, reasonably priced, and friendly.

The chill in the air probably helped us on our walks nearby, near the Kilvrecht campsite. In fact, it seems one could walk uphill from the property onto those trails, though we drove and combined it with a trip ink the village.

We would definitely visit again.
