The Stoer Lodge was a beautiful and cozy respite for our lockdown weary selves. The location is amazing, the house is lovely, and we felt right at home immediately. Would highly recommend. The area is absolutely stunning and Stoer Lodge is THE perfect location to explore it.

As we arrived we were greeted by lovely Jenny. The cottage is stunning and set in perfect surroundings, close to the fabulous Plodda Falls. The cottage is well equipped with everything you should need, comfortable sofas/beds and a lovely warm open fire. Jenny really made us feel welcome here, always on hand to answer questions and to provide and further information. The cottage has ample room for families. Myself, my partner and our two doggies stayed. Enclosed gardens which were ideal. We will definitely be returning here in the not too distant future.

I cannot express how totally stunning Log Ness is!! It is absolutely beautiful and set in an amazing location with brilliant views over Loch Ness. Sian and Phil happened to meet us upon our arrival at Log Ness and they were very welcoming and gave us lots of useful advice. There is everything you could possibly need in the lodge and all is to a very high standard. The log burner is amazing and keeps you nice and toastie with the under floor heating as well. There is a lovely outside drinking area with dart board, but unfortunately we couldn't really make use of this due to the bad weather. The washing machine and tumble drier came in very useful, especially for our ringing wet clothes from our Ben Nevis experience. We even arranged a Tesco delivery which turned up with no problems. The surroundings are so beautiful. There are lots of walks that can be done immediately from the lodge. We did a lovely 8 mile walk through some stunning locations. Would highly recommend Log Ness and Sian and Phil are more than happy to help out and answer any questions. We are even looking to go back in the summertime and make use of all the outside space and BBQ. Totally amazing!!

This is an amazing property. Spotlessly clean. Wood provided for fire and property is so easy to keep warm. Kitchen had more equipment than we have at home- washing machine and separate drier. Proper wooden cot rather than travel cot provided and good, safe high chair. Showers are wonderful, hot and powerful. Strong wi-fi. Easy to keep clean, even with 2 Labradors. Quiet, peaceful and secluded. 10 mins walk into Fort Augustus (Uphill on way back) TV, CD player. Immediate access to Great Glen Way. Veranda/ decking area for sitting and for leaving muddy boots etc. Bathroom radiators suitable to drying damp clothing if necessary

Camero's Cottage was just the best . The photos really don't do it justice as it was so much more roomy than we expected . Morag ,the owner, was lovely and on hand should you need . The area is beautiful . Cameron's Tearooms are a must and a short walk from the cottage . The staff were so helpful and friendly and the food ..... well , we went everyday .Thats testament enough . We shall certainly be returning to this cottage .

Excellent cottage and a lovely warm welcome from the owners. The cottage is simply wonderful, and finished to a very high standard. It has its own privacy, whilst sharing the plot with the owners home, just a few yards away. The burn flowing besides is the only noise, coupled with the birds on the feeder and whilst close to the main road, its feels like you are in your own little world. A great location with access to Glen Coe, Oban and onwards to the West Coast. Get the fire roaring, have a walk through the woodland and relax with a whiskey.

We had a wonderful stay at Stablemans Lodge. It is warm and cosy, very clean, well-equipped and great location. The house is behind the owner's property but feels very private, and Grantown on Spey is a lovely little town, very pretty and a good base for lots of activities. As there is no central heating, I was a little worried that the house would not be warm enough, a key requirement for me, but due to the very efficient wood burner, heat circulation system and an electric heater in the kitchen (not really needed as it was warm enough, anyway) this was not the case, in fact it was toasty warm throughout our stay. There was also a double bed in the bedroom area, rather than all single beds, as shown on the photos, which was a nice surprise, too.

A fabulous place to stay, contemporary, filled with light & a profusion of glass to take in the stunning views of the sea loch from all rooms. Really appreciated the remote location, so quiet & unspoilt. However, take note that if visiting out of season there are very few facilities open. Bring your own food supplies. The tiny shop in Glendale has essential food supplies. Do not rely on it for food upon arrival as it will be closed & does not open again until 11am Monday. A welcome pack would be appreciated. The Co-op at Portree is an hour drive away.
