We had a fabulous holiday at Learag. The property is stunning with so many thoughtful touches. The photographs on the site don't really do justice to the size and loveliness of this property. If you are looking for peace, quiet and lots of nature, this is the property to look at. We will be returning when we can.

We have had an amazing week at Learag. The view is very beautiful and the house is luxurious. the welcome basket full of treats was delicious and the large TV was really entertaining. We watched a lot of movies. The Highlands is a gorgeous place to visit. We went on 2 cruises and saw some lovely countryside. We also loved when Nova (the little dog from next door0 came to visit. Thank you for a great holiday.

We have had a brilliant week at Learag. It's just gone in far too fast. we have been coming up to the Highlands every year for the past 10 years. The house ranks amongst the best. A stunning property in a beautiful setting with every comfort you could ask for. We cannot wait to return.

We had a lovely holiday. The house, and the design of it was excellent, and the area around absolutely beautiful. Our daughter loved Nova (the little dog from next door) and her German Shepherd friend when they came to visit.

We have had a great holiday. So much to see and do. We have stayed in many cottages in the UK and abroad and Learag is up there with the best. We lacked for nothing and felt totally at home. Thank you
