Charleston is the perfect get away from it all cottage. We loved the walks straight from the door and cooking in the evening in a well equipped kitchen. The views are amazing . Fort Augustus is a shortish and beautiful drive away if you need provisions and the cafe at Foyer is very welcoming after a day walking

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stoer Lodge. Very homely property in an exceptional setting with stunning views. The log burner was very efficient on the few chilly nights it was required. Lodge was very well equipped with everything we needed.

What a truly fabulous week we spent in this beautiful place. Everything exceeded our expectations. Apart from the unreliable Scottish weather which didnt matter too much as we could enjoy the views unfolding before us on the sofas each morning, feeling very warm and cosy by the fire. The decor is just our cup of tea. We all love to cook and everything was on hand that we needed. Many a fun night was spent eating nice meals around the table followed by a game of scrabble. The walks are delightful and we regularly saw the local seal also the otter who didnt seem to mind us watching him as he fished and ate what he caught. The Sea Eagle apparently flew past but we were not looking up, but he is around.Two lovely friendly pigs over the wall of the Chocolate factory also. This has got to be one of the most beautiful holiday homes we have stayed in, no awful leather sofas in sight, some places seem more akin to an old folks home. We apprecaited all the quirky features and design particulary the Candelabras which we lit every night. Will certainly be booking this again.

The cottage was warm and clean with everything we needed for a comfortable two-week stay - and the small conservatory facing the loch is terrific for watching wildlife and relaxing, whatever the weather, and for star gazing on clear nights. Set within stunning scenery, silent and peaceful, It is well placed for walking and for driving to lots of places of interest. The owner has provided fascinating background on her family history relating to the croft, and there are books and a great DVD collection for the evenings (which are long in the winter). WiFi is limited but fine as long as you dont stream/need to work. In November we found most tourist venues shut and as you would expect, limited shopping locally, but a chest freezer makes food planning easy. The wildlife was terrific, with white tailed eagles over the cottage on our first day, and red deer on the hill in the evenings. Lots of garden birds, buzzards and a resident tawny owl which sits on the garden fence post. Further afield we saw golden eagles, seals, porpoise, stoats and much more. If driving at night be prepared for a lot of deer on the road. The garden was fenced well enough for us to feel confident letting out border collie explore off the lead.

A beautiful modern house in a simply stunning setting. The house was very clean, always warm and had everything we needed. Having visited in November many local facilities were closed, but we were well prepared. The scenery and walks are never closed and the views from the house will remain with us for a long time.

Great cottage in good location for exploring the area of Cairngorms and Aberdeenshire. The cottage has great views from the garden side, but the garden and cottage windows are open to the cottage next door so may be an issue for dogs or privacy (as no curtains) if anyone is there during a stay (not for us, as nobody was there). Cottage has everything for a great week away.

Exactly as advertised. Beautiful cottage and very cosy with log fire. Spacious and like a home from home. The family were very friendly and helpful and were happy to help you see the best of Scotland. Will defiantly be recommending this holiday to everyone.
