Lovely peaceful cottage, great to come back to at the end of a wet day! Great facilities, especially the little entrance hall, perfect for our wet gear. Ideally situated for visiting Highlands and surrounding area. Even the passing road wasn't a problem and nice to see the steam train go past, and a lovely view over the Loch. Even though the weatheRead morer wasn't great we did all that we planned to do, including climb Ben Nevis visit Glenfinnan viaduct and go on the Jacobite steam train. Fabulous! Hide
