The truth about the cottage
Left on 12/05/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | do not wish my details known to the genera public
Bluebell cottage was mostly as described with one real draw back the brochure did not give the impression that the cottage was 5 miles down a track with poor road surface putting at least 1/2 hour extra on any journey from the cottage to a main road.
I have already written to you reference this and had no reply.
however that said the cottage was clean, warm and relaxing and would be suited to a family wishing to do outdoor pursuits.
An amazing piece of heaven.

A perfect well proportioned immaculate cottage in an amazing setting. Peacefull and private. Owners couldn't have been anymore helpful or friendly, they catered for all our needs and were really lovely people. We stayed for 1 week and did a lot of walking & some cycling using the excellent mountain bikes offered free of charge by the owners. The log fire was superb with plenty of logs & kindling available throughout our stay. We were also provided with wild bird seed for the bird table and it was great to watch the wild birds feeding while we ate breakfast. Would love to keep this amazing place a secret but that would not be fair to others so please give this cottage a go, you will not be disappointed and you will be wanting to return as we are.

a superb cottage in a slightly remote place with great owners just next door. Excellent facilities. If the weather had been better we could have just sat in the lovely garden all day.

A fantastic relaxing time

Despite the bad weather we had a wonderful time. Beautiful surroundings and breathtaking views. The cottage was spotless and had excellent facilities. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, bringing us fresh wood every day for the woodburner and even offered some of their food when the snow got really bad!!! We will be back!

We loved the cottage and surrounding area. The cottage had everything we needed. The owners Ian & Simone were extremely nice and very helpful. The only "bad" thing would be howw far away from everything the cottage is.We ended up getting a flat tire and because the cottage was so far from Glasgow the rental company couldn't get any one to us. For 4 days we were stuck at the cottage, considering it was our honeymoon that wasn't a bad thing, but we didn't really get to explore Scotland like we had hoped.
Lovely relaxing week

The cottage was lovely, very quiet and comfortable. We liked the welcome touches - wine, biscuits, flowers etc. and the owners were very friendly and helpful.
Our only minor criticism would be there was nowhere to hang towels in the ensuite - there is an ideal area behind the door for a towel rail and hooks on the backs of the doors would have been good.
The area was wonderful with many places of interest to visit and great walks from the door. Overall an excellent week - somewhere we would love to re-visit at some point.
We have recommended the cottage to friends who have already booked !

The holiday was more than we could ever of hoped it would be. The cottage was
warm and welcoming as were the owners. The scenery was picturesque. I would
recommend this to anyone that wants to step back from a busy life and appreciate
the good things life can offer.
Bluebell cottage was a Great Escape

An immaculate, well appointed, spacious yet cozy highland hideaway in the middle of beautiful nowhere. Surroundings are delightful and previous heavy rains had turned the burn at the bottom of the garden into a whitewater cascade. Brilliant! Simone (the owner) was very helpful, but did not interfere in any way. The log burner was teriffic and kept me occupied every evening. The cottage is also well appointed for anyone in the party is disabled, having extra wide doors and a ramp to the front door, though there is no drop-down handrail by the loo so you might want to take your own floor standing frame if you need such a thing.

The use of the boat with engine was a bonus. The tuition prior to use was very
The owners were very friendly, nothing to was too much for them to do.
The walks in the area were great.
