Reviewed 29 Aug 2017

A fantastic time exploring this area with lots to see and do. Cottage was fab and well provided. The peat stove even in summer (!) was very welcoming and the oven it fired up was quaint. A well organised small space! And the hot tub was a welcome end to a hard day's walking. The views and tranquility were truly amazing. And Eddie was a lovely host, waiting for us in our very delayed arrival on the first evening.
