    “We recently stayed and were amazed at the standard and value.”

    We've stayed in a lot of cottages but this was on another level. Kathleen was the best host we have encountered. Very welcoming and helpful. She embodied the 'cead mìle fàilte'. The house was clean to a standard that beats most 5 star hotels. Great location as well. I couldn't recommend this enough. We'll be back for sure
