Poulary Cottage - Loch Poulary - Glen Garry

Sleeps 4 - Wifi - Wood Burning Stove - Pets Welcome

This charming traditional country holiday cottage is located deep in Glen Garry, in the Highlands of Scotland between Fort William and Inverness, two of the most popular tourist destinations in Scotland. Poulary cottage enjoys a wonderful position overlooking Loch Poulary and lovely mountain views it is is on the road to the distant hamlet of Kinloch Hourn and the end of the road. If you are looking for peace and quiet away from it all, with beautiful views across wild country to a mountain loch then Poulary is for you. 

Poulary cottage sits in its own 13 acres of land bounded by a burn to the side, River Garry to the south and the road leading to the woodland trail below the cottage to the west. The woodland trail takes you down to the River Garry, where many an hour may be spent exploring. For anglers fishing permits are available for the river and a local gillhie can be arranged. With a choice of hills around the cottage, including some Munro’s, there is a hill suitable, whatever your ability. The views from any summit are incomparable to those lower down and exploration here is well worth every step.

The cottage is ideal for birdwatching – with the bird table in the garden attracting a variety of birds including - Siskins, Chaffinches, Coal Tits and a Greater Spotted Woodpecker and from the garden a White Tailed Eagle (Fish Eagle) and an Osprey have been spotted. During the Autumn when the rut starts you may well see deer very close to the cottage and a trip up the Glen towards Kinloch Hourn, should produce some very good photo opportunities of the Red deer and the wonderful views. Being 12 miles from the nearest shop, it is as well to bring all your provisions with you.

Lovely retreat with loads of space for the dogs. Loved the wee bit of wild in the garden with regular finches, siskins and a few others including great spotted woodpecker and a couple of rock dove. Pine Martins were amazing to watch and I took a few 35mm slr shots on my old Cannon A1. looking forward to some old fashioned development! Cottage was immaculate on our arrival thanks to Audrey who, incidentally was chewing through some long grass with the mower when we arrived. Perfect place for 30th wedding anniversary for us. With dogs-no kids!! Visit and enjoy.

Poulary Cottage was a great base for the week, it was cosy and spotlessly clean with perhaps the best view we have had from a holiday cottage. The kitchen had a great selection of utensils etc too. The wild neighbours were a major highlight: deer regularly visited the garden as did a host of small birds and our trail camera saw no fewer than 3 pine martens visit at once! We hope to return. The key safe is really stiff, you need to pull really hard to open it, but it does open: we at first thought it wasn't going to. We were glad we brought our own kitchen roll, as there wasn't any and there was only one toilet roll for the week. There were plenty dishwasher tablets etc though.

We had an amazing week at this beautiful, secluded property. Poulary is well equipped and maintained to a high standard by the owner and Audrey the wonderful cleaner/caretaker. The variety of wildlife on the doorstep is amazing, take lots of bird food to replenish the feeders daily. Deer and Pine martins visited each evening. There are walks from the door and many more further down the Glen. The property is remote (that's why we chose it ). Take supplies with you, unless you want to travel, the nearest shops are quite a distance away. A brilliant week and we hope to visit again next year.

Superb week in Poulary Cottage, warm and comfortable and the location is exceptional. Pine Marten visited each evening and the birds were a joy to watch. As good as it was, having paid top money for a two bedroom cottage, there are a numer of issues that need attention which are above and beyond the remit of Audrey who did an excellent job of making sure the property was clean and ready for our visit. Some roof tiles have become dislodged and are in danger of falling from the roof. Two decking boards drop when walked on due to the support timber being rotten. The bath panel is broken at the shower end of the bath. The hand basin taps are loose. The TV is wedged into a corner unit and lodged on a piece of timber giving partial obstruction when viewing the screen. TV instructions direct you to use Sky controller but there is no Sky box or controller. The sofa in the lounge smelt fairly strongly of dogs. Some general TLC wouldn't go amiss. I mention these issues because if the owners wish to continue letting this property it would be good if they were addressed for the benefit of future clients.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and feedback on Poulary Cottage. Firstly we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Poulary We have contacted the owner and made him aware of the issues raised. He is disappointed to receive such feedback as he visited the property 3 weeks ago was not aware of the issues raised. He will have these attended to as soon as possible. Apologies for TV comments being confusing, there is no Sky Box/Controllers in the cottage as this has been replaced with a Smart Freesat TV. This new TV gives a far greater range of viewing options, he will update these instructions to reflect this. Pets do cause problems at times and there are instructions in place to request that pets are not allowed on furniture or in bedrooms however guests do not always follow these. The cleaner is aware of this and does open windows/doors for airing during the changeover of the house and pays particular attention to removing dog hair from carpets etc. He will discuss this with her and see what additional steps he can take to remove odour from pets.

A superb cottage in a wonderful location. Everything about it is perfect in every way, the area, the wildlife and the tranquillity. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed sitting on the balcony looking down the wonderful glen. Many lovely walks from the cottage and in the area.

Our 24th visit to Poulary! We've been coming here every year since 2008. The cottage is perfect, home from home! You can't beat the ever changing view from the dining room, it's stunning. The bird table is very busy from morn till night. Regular visits at night from the pine martens and occasionally in the daytime too! Also foxes, badgers and weasel seen in the garden. Osprey and buzzards overhead and deer in the grounds of the cottage. Perfect, its a stunning place to visit any season of the year whatever the weather. There are lots of walks close to the cottage and the cottage is central in the highlands to visit lots of places.

Most things were excellent about Poulary cottage but, although not vital, the tv system was a little slow and dated and let the experience down. The double bed was a little uncomfortable as the 'upper mattress' had a tendency to move. Fantastic views down the glen, it provided a great base for approaching the hills and we hope to return.

The views from the dining room table are stunning, you can either just sit and relax looking at the mountains, watching the deer, buzzards overhead or the very busy bird table. Pine martens are regular visitors at night to the bird table and also badgers.

Very relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. The views from the cottage are phenomenal and we enjoyed walks, runs and kayaking and fantastic wildlife spots. Audrey had the place spotless, warm and cosy for our arrival. We took a tip from another review and took an inexpensive battery motion sensor light with us which worked well to illuminate pine marten visits without disturbing them - there are outside lights at the property entrances for coming and going, but none that shine on the bird table and decking. Really well equipped cottage and between the excellent heating and stove we were warm and cosy despite some very cold weather including snow. Full size freezer was great allowing us to take most of our food for the week and shower over bath is a decent electric model not just attached to the taps. Really nice decor with some lovely vintage furniture that added to the homely feel. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

A nice comfortable, well equipped cottage in a tranquil location. We enjoyed the cottage and cooking using the Everhot range. Lots of walks within 30 minutes drive. Plenty of wildlife straight from the windows (deers, pine martens, woodpeckers and many other birds) and a brilliant changing view of the loch and mountains from the dining room window. There is no light around the bird table to see nocturnal visits from the wildlife, but luckily we took a battery powered, motion detection security light which allowed us to watch the pine martens after dark. As there are no shops nearby we prebooked an ASDA delivery for the Monday (4.00 charge for a 2 hour slot) which was delivered on time and with no issues. The road outside the cottage to Kinloch Hourn is a fantastic drive and great for wildlife spotting. It gets a bit narrow for the last half mile, but the views and peace at the loch are well worth the drive. A brilliant holiday in a great part of Scotland.

A truly outstanding location with stunning scenery and views. The cottage has everything you need and plan ahead for meals before you come and do a shop or noticed Asda deliveries passing, you should then only need to stock up for basics, garage in Fort Augustus is well stocked. The walks for dogs around this area are brilliant and Murphy had a ball exploring everywhere although I did get blisters but well worth it. The weather has been exceptional sun from dawn till dusk every day (coming from East Scotland, maybe it's true, always sunny in the West!!) The walk to Loch Loyne was well worth it (bear left at red phone box if coming from cottage) and Murphy even swan which is a change from his jumping in the water. Bring bird food as the bird table is mesmerising.

Poulary Cottage is extremely well equipped and in a lovely location. It's very warm and cosy and the double bed is one of the most comfortable we've slept in. It really is away from it all and it's quite a drive back up the valley if you want to get out and about sightseeing. One piece of advice I wish we'd had is that the nearest decent shop is in Fort Augustus at the filling station and there's a butcher there too. Take bird food if you want to see a busy bird table and the Pine Marten only came during the night when we were there but we had a camera trap so got footage on that? The Stanley range cooker takes a bit of getting used to.

We had an excellent stay at Poulary Cottage. The cottage itself is well built, comfortable and is well equipped with everything you need for a stay - the owners really have thought of everything! It is worth bringing as much as you can as the nearest shop is 15 miles away (23 miles to a better stocked one) however, we ended up going for drives out on a few of the days and picked up any extras we needed on the way back. Tons of interesting wildlife regularly visits the garden (although we didn't get to see the pinemarten, we will be bringing fat balls next time!) and there are always lots of red deer in and around the house and the gardens. The dog loved the secure garden and the forest that makes up part of the property's land, in fact the whole area is perfect for well-behaved dogs. There are loads of walks right on the doorstep, from gentle low level walks to several munroes and the scenery all around is simply spectacular. We took the drive to Kinloch Hourn and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, though not the faint hearted and that applies to driver and passenger! It is 15 miles down the single track road and the last couple of miles are a bit challenging but it is well worth it. No need for a 4x4 but a strong engine is a must and take your time. The day after we got home, we booked to go back the same time next year. If you are looking for a get away from it all type holiday in a beautiful setting, you cannot go far wrong with this place.

Our 5th year at Poulary, we love the cottage {especially the stanley and log burner!}the ever changing views from the dining room.It's an ideal location for exploring the highlands,or relaxing in the cosy cottage. There are many walks around the cottage without leaving the glen. We love watching the ever hungry birds at the birdtable and wait eagerly every night to see the resident pine marten,and catching a glimpse of deer in the garden.Ideal for dogs {secure} Back in October, cant wait :}

My husband and I enjoyed the cottage as did our two dogs Niya and Lexi we had a fabulous time at the cottage and enjoyed the views. The only thing that let the cottage down was the lack of broadband as neither myself or my husband got a phone signal at the cottage. Lovely clean cottage would go back for a further stay.

This was our second holiday at Poulary. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable with everything you might need to enjoy your stay. The fenced garden, and indeed the extended woodland, is ideal for visitors with both children and dogs. Our two dogs were in their element. The location of the cottage makes it easy to visit other places such as Skye, the Great Glen and Glen Affric, to mention but a few. We very much enjoyed our stay at Poulary and would certainly recommend it to anyone.

What a wonderful two weeks we had at this lovely remote cosy cottage.The cottage is well equipped and the stanley range was a joy to cook on. This was a great location for the dogs, really secure and there are fantastic walks straight out of the garden accross the river into the pine forests and mountains. The views were spectacular and changed every day, we were also very lucky with the weather. Our two German Shepherds did not want to leave neither did we!! We will certainly be visiting again

Poulary Cottage is very comfortable and well-equipped, and in a stunning remote location. The photographs don't quite do it justice. We stayed for 2 weeks in Jan/Feb and were nice and cosy. There are plenty of walks from the cottage, through pine forests, along the river, and up into the hills - you can even reach a Munro from the cottage. Great for wildlife, too. We saw pine martens, deer, and owls in the grounds - and a nocturnal wild pig! We'll definitely be back!

We stay 1 week in the cottage from september 24th till october 1st 2011 and we had a wonderful time. The cottage lies very nice and is very well equipped. The views are magnificent. The weather was not very good, many rain, but we make many walks and see a lot. 1 week is too short and we will certain come back, but then longer. Our dog Njord loves the place very much.

Great cottage and location, everything that we wanted from our visit to this part of Scotland. Would recommend the cottage and area to anyone, especially those with dogs. The enclosed garden and woodland was very safe, both our dogs had a wonderful time. Plenty of walks in the local hills and woods, and fantastic views all around, especially the sunsets.

The cottage was really lovely, the decor, fixtures and fittings made it really homely. The whole setting was stunning and very remote which we really wanted. We had the most marvelous week. I would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to get away from it all. Thank you.

Our 3rd visit to Poulary.. a fantastic cottage set amongst spectacular scenery. The views from the dining room keep you enthralled for hours, watching the birds feeding, looking over loch and mountains and watching the eagles and osprey on their hunting expeditions on the loch. We had many walks around the cottage, in the forest along the road, by the river. We loved sitting out on the verandah taking in the breathtaking scenery and wildlife, Rating 100+ outstanding/perfect! we'll be back! :)

8/8/09 until 22/8/09 Our second visit to this fabulous cosy remote cottage set in the mountains and lochs. Never seen such a busy bird table with so many different birds including the woodpecker (fascinating)and in the evening two pine martins visit,they steal the fat balls and nuts from the birdtable and even look through the patio window. They love date and walnut cake or a scone with jam on it.In October last year we had the Deer right outside but not in August this time.A great place to relax and get away from it all. Lots of great walks through the forest and to Loch Loyne. We did the walk along the road to nowhere and we conquered the mountain in front of the cottage 535ft what an achievement at our age. The games room with its football game and dart board is ideal on a rainy day when you just want to chill out with a wee dram and the shortbread. Went to Oban, Applecross, Lossiemouth, Fort William and Inverness all within easy reach.

After a fab week in October we returned in August. We had another wonderful 2 weeks, cosy cottage spectacular scenery and lots of wonderful walks right on the doorstep. We visited many places during our stay, shin falls, Chia-aig falls, Dores beach, Fort Willliam, Inverness, Lossiemouth, Dornoch Firth (to watch the seals), Nairn, Fort Augustus, Beauly, Oban, Invermorriston and Applecross ( a hair-raising drive through ’The pass of the cattle’, 2053 feet above sea level, not for the faint hearted or nervous driver -or passenger for that matter!) we also made our annual pilgramage to Moniac Castle for our wines and preserves.
The bird table was always a flurry of activity one day we counted 40 plus birds including a woodpecker. (they are very greedy indeed)
But not as greedy as the resident pine-martens!, we were lucky to be visited every night at dusk where they feasted on scones with marmalade or peanut butter!, they also stole the fat ball nightly from the bird table, one night they even stole all the peanuts, feeder as well (we found it 2 days later hidden in the bushes!) I was lucky enough to get video footage using nightshot on my video camera of their antics.
We also had some lovely walks around the cottage, in the forest, along the road and followed the old drovers road to skye (by Tomdoun Church) it now stops dead at Loch Loyne, we also spotted 5 stags on this walk. Our dog Max loves this cottage, the only downfall was the MIDGES!. A fab cottage, fantastic location

Nothing but praise for Poulary Cottage. Had a wonderful week there in July. The cottage really is out in the wilderness, about 7 miles off the main road. Brilliant views out of the dining room window across the valley and my wife certainly enjoyed the bird table in the garden which attracted all sorts. Cottage is spacious and has all the amenities you need. The seperate games room is a nice touch and is nice to unwind in there after a day of exploring.
Good location as a base as well as you are well within distance of various sites of interest - Glengarry, Fort William, Ben Nevis, Inverness, Cairngorns, Skye and many more. We even made the trip up to John O’Groats which took a good 4 hours! Can recommend the Invergarry Hotel for a good meal and a great atmosphere.
If you’re looking for a nice quiet cottage with stunning views and scenery then this is the one for you.

Travelled to Mallaig, Isle of Sky, Fort William, Oban, Inverness, Loch Ness, Fort Augustus, got some brilliant chutneys and wine from Monniac Castle 10 miles west of Inverness. Lots of bird species and animal life even deer in the garden of the cottage every morning. Had a heavy snowfall in October it was great. Got the photos to look at in the winter months ahead. Can’t wait to go back, Thank you Wendy for inviting us to come with you on this trip it was fab.
