About the Owner

Aigas Holidays comprises of four courtyard cottages, a secluded hillside cottage and our 9 hole parkland golf course all situated on the the family farm.

Jessie and Peter Masheter purchased Mains of Aigas farm (500 acres) in 1960. The operation then mainly involved running a Highland farm with one hillside self catering cottage.

The family run business is now home to two further generations of Masheters who have all returned to live nearby in this beautiful area and to assist in running this unique family business.

As usual brilliant stay, actually stayed in all properties here and loved each one, better each year. Been coming for 11years and hope for many more. Fantastic golf course and great base for sightseeing too. Properties are excellent with all the comforts of home.

Super Ausgangspunkt für Tagesausflüge

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im März 2016 mit unseren beiden Kindern (5 und 9 Jahre) dort.

Die Wohnung und der Außenbereich waren für den Aufenthalt mit unseren Kindern gut geeignet, wobei wir auch die meiste Zeit unterwegs waren. Die Einrichtung ist eher rustikal und weniger modern, so wie auf den Bilder auch ersichtlich. Uns hat es nicht gestört.

Von der Lage eignet sich die Wohnung als super Ausgangspunkt zum Erkunden der Region nordwestlich des Loch Ness. Ob wandern im Glen Affric oder Delfine beobachten in Fort George/Fortrose, alles lässt sich super als Tagesausflug mit dem Auto machen.

Die Gastgeber waren sehr nett, sehr hilfreich beim Aussuchen von Ausflugszielen und haben unserem Sohn auch einen kleinen Einblick ins Golf spielen gegeben.

Wenn man etwas bemängeln will, dann wäre es nur die für uns doch etwas geringe Höhe der Dusche.

WLAN Empfang in der Wohnung wäre wünschenswert (auf dem Gelände vorhanden).
