A lovely spot just across from the shore. Cottage is warm, comfortable and well equipped. It has a sheltered secure garden at the back, ideal for our lurcher. Loch Carron works well as a launch point for Wester Ross.

White-Tail Croft

We stayed in White-Tail Croft for two weeks in September. From the moment of our arrival we were impressed by the care and forethought that has gone into the property. Everything has been finished to high standard with everything you need to have a relaxing stay. It is a very comfortable place to spend two weeks. It is set overlooking the glen and the view and regular stream of wildlife held us entranced. So much so that we did not leave the property nearly as much as we had planned. This cannot be guaranteed, but on only two days during our stay did we not see Golden Eagles including at close quarters, and White Tailed Eagles were also often seen. A truly lovely property to which I hope we shall return.

Arrivain Cottage

What a lovely cottage!! The most comfortable we ever stayed in. The cottage was renovated with an eye on detail, lovely decorated and a high level finishing. Fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and a warm welcome from Jacqui and Jeff who made us feel very welcome, thank you so much! The location is perfect with lots of fabulous walks and beautiful scenery in the surrounding area. We very much enjoyed our drive through Glen Orchy and Glen Etive as well as our daytrip to the isle of Mull. The Artisan Cafe in Tyndrum is a must for a nice cup of coffee with delicious home-made cakes. And after a day exploring Arrivain cottage is a perfect peaceful place to relax and have a good nights sleep. We really enjoyed our week and will definitely recommend this beautiful cottage to others. We would love to stay again!!

Lovey place in the wild. A little remote during the winter so four wheel drive advised if icy or snowing due to the distance off the main road. Comfortable and warm though, lighting a little dim during the evening.

Stunning house, so very comfortable with everything you may need. Location is perfect for exploring Ardnamurchan. Shame about the weather but it didn't stop us from enjoying our week and doing some of the shorter walks. Wildlife especially the Pine marten was unbelievable. Will definitely be back to Sealight but unfortunately 2018 is already fully booked for our dates!!

Carn Loch Cottage

The cottage has everthing you would need, for an away from it holiday. The underfloor heating is wonderful. The owners are at hand if needed and nothing is too much trouble. A very warm welcome. Unfortunatly the sharpe uneven service of the gravel drive was not liked by my arthritic dog and husband. Beautiful place though.

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Tigh-na-Craobh! The house is beautiful, well appointed, very comfortable, and so handy for everything on the island. Considering the quality of the accommodation, this represents truly excellent value for money. We couldn't recommend it highly enough; we'll definitely be back!

Don Cottage

We enjoyed a week's holiday at Don Cottage in August. Don Cottage is not far from Drumnadrochit - a five-minute drive (too far to walk), and also convenient for Glen Afric. We also toured from here down to Fort William, up to Inverness, the Black Isle and to Ullapool. The cottage is located at the foot of hills, looking down to the main road and across to more hills. It is a traditional Scottish cottage - two main rooms downstairs and two upstairs, with small windows. There was a pretty hill garden to the front of the cottage, and good parking. To the rear, very steep hill. Getting there was simpler than it looked on the instructions or SatNav - one has to wiggle through some narrow lanes, but it is not too hilly. The village is small and takes about 5 minutes to walk through. The cottage kitchen was modern and well appointed - and there was a nice selection of welcome food and milk (many thanks) including some wine and whisky. The sitting room was comfy - the three of us fitted on one sofa - the far end of the room is a bit dark. Good selection of children's and grown up videos to watch, and some local books and maps; also CDs. Brightly decorated and pleasant bathroom downstairs. Also, a cupboard to hang coats. Upstairs, the bedrooms were spacious, the beds comfy and there was plenty of cupboard space. The whole house was well decorated, with tasteful local pictures.

Shellac is a very well equipped and well presented cottage - it was very clean when we arrived. There is plenty of information in the cottage about the Highlands and a number of maps which was very helpful. A very comfortable holiday cottage and Lochcarron is a great base from which to explore this beautiful and breathtaking area.

We had a superb week at Christie's this September. It is a beautiful place to get away from it all and relax. The kitchen is very easy to live with and includes a decent dishwasher and tumble dryer. The garden actually runs down to the sea. It is great for dogs. The village has a couple of shops and a filling station. We will probably book to return next year we liked it so much.

We had a lovely stay in this delightful former train house, it is well equipped and beautifully situated. If you like peace and tranquility, this is the perfect place. The occasional train passing by was no problem at all, it always happens on a set time and during the day. For nature lovers this is an ideally located cottage, with many sheep, deer, song birds and birds of prey, most of these literally on the doorstep.

Taigh Druim

I had wanted to stay at Taigh Druim for 2 or 3 years, having seen the excellent reviews on the Wilderness Cottages website, it looked fantastic. So when we arrived in September 2017 I was slightly concerned that it may not live up to my expectations. Well it certainly did and more so, because nothing can prepare you for the sheer magnificence of the scenery, no photograph can ever quite capture the grandeur of actually being there - just stunning. On top of that, the house itself is superb and very well equipped. 5 star recommended without hesitation.

Beautiful cottage which was well proportioned with a large master bedroom. Matress was very firm so if you like a soft sleep it's not for you. The two living areas had a wood burner in one and an open fire in the other. Well equipped kitchen with all you would need for cooking if that's not you thing you are a short drive to Portree or a 30min walk but bring a torch for walking home very dark. The cottage had chickens that liked to visit and the occasional cow if bringing dog beware chickens can come in the garden but mostly they didn't and our two spaniels got to play in the extensive back garden

We had a lovely stay at Balachladdich from 18-25 September 2017. With 2 children aged 6 & 7 as well as a baby, it was a suitable house for us. We were grateful for a highchair & portable cot being provided. The bedrooms are all lovely & it is such a treat having modern bathrooms in the Highlands! The house is cosy & quiet. The location is very convenient to drive anywhere around the Highlands - we were able to do day trips to Skye, Loch Ness, Plockton & Balintore to name a few. We would love to stay there again in future. If I had to fault anything, it took 3 months to get a reply on whether cot linen could be arranged for us. It would be great if cot linen could be provided in future.

Plodda Falls Lodge

Plodda Falls Lodge is beautiful and an immense amount of time and effort has been done to restore it to the feel of a Scottish highland lodge. It is well maintained and extremely cosy, well equipped and a lovely comfortable double bed which after a day's walking is definitely required. The surrounding area is stunning and there are amazing walks right on the door step to Plodda Falls and the track to Glenmoriston had great views back down to Tomich and across to Glen Affric estate. The walks at Glen Affric estate are well worth it and particularly the Loch Affric circuit. Once you walked to the top end of the Loch you felt in another world surrounded by glorious mountains. My Labrador had a ball and the park today just didn't seem adequate!! Jenny was there to meet me and had made a scrumptious lemon drizzle cake and I probably wouldn't have explored as much without her suggestions and knowledge of the area. I will definitely be booking to go back as so much more to explore.

The views from the dining room are spectacular, you can watch the ever changing landscape as the mist and sun rise and fall on the mountains. The wildlife that can be seen in the garden and the Glen is awesome, the majestic stags, buzzards, eagles, we spotted deer in the garden every day this visit. The pine marten visited most nights and sometimes at dawn.We never tire of watching the birds on the bird table. Poulary is located centrally in the Highlands and so great for exploring and sightseeing.

Our stay at Jura Cottage left a lasting impression on us both. Even though many days had rain, because of the location and comfort of the cottage, we were able to rest, relax and curl up with good books on rainy days. We did have some amazingly beautiful experiences there - and some sunny times, too! We really appreciated Katie, the neighbor/manager, who gave us a lovely tour of her garden and gave us ideas about places to visit. We stalked the trails and went down to the shore, photographed the rushing streams, ate fresh fish and steak from the mobile butcher and fish monger. We ate well, slept soundly and late (most mornings were rainy - unusually so, I heard) and enjoyed the many, many birds that came all around the sunroom overlooking the water and mountains beyond. It was heaven. What an extraordinary environment.
