Guest Comments

Here is a brief selection of some comments left in our visitors' book.

"Absolutely beautiful location and house, peaceful, lots of walks and cycle tracks through the forest....we will be back!!!!"

"Sarah and Alasdair are warm gentle hosts who share their peaceful home with joy and enthusiasm. The house is warm, light and clean, the bed comfortable, the breakfast generous and delicious, the evening meal equally so. I could only stay 2 nights but next time it will be much more. There is so much beauty to be explored in the area and a lot right on the doorstep! Thank you Sarah and Alasdair for your excellence and commitment to the service of your guests."

"Thank you Sarah and Aladair, you are wonderful people. Your kindness and tips have helped me to enjoy these two weeks in the best way. The peace I have felt here is the most I have ever felt. This house, the forests, the towns, the places around here are now carved deep into my heart. Grazie Mille."

"You have made me feel at home and I have enjoyed speaking however my poor English..."

"An oasis of peace and tranquillity amid beautiful surroundings."

"Our stay was delightful in this home full of light."

"The week-long stay has just flown by. It's a shame we did not have enough time to explore all the lovely walks at the back of the cottage and the ones on your maps! The BnB, the setting, all the helpful maps, guides, and information made it a perfect stay and opportunity to explore the magical and breathtakingly beautiful Highlands. In India there is a saying:
"If there is such a thing as Heaven on earth it is here, it is here, it is here."
"Thank you for a comfortable stay. Best Wishes."

"Thanks Sarah and Alasdair for you very warm welcome to your home. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and so made us relaxed which was just perfect. We have been very fortunate with the weather over the past few days or maybe that was Alasdair's expert advice on telling us where to head towards! This area of Scotland is so beautiful, the Fleet Nature Reserve was quite spectacular and the "seal" show added extra!! Thank you so much. "
