11th Comment Perfect location for the hill or the sea - especially good for boat owners to be able to launch easily onto the Loch. Aug 2009.
12th Comment In a very remote corner of Scotland down very narrow and steep sided roads nestled below Beinn Strigtheall the Cottage is a welcome sight after a long drive from England. The scenery and wildlife are excellent with stags and rabbits visiting the back garden and otters and porpoise in the loch out the front. With the nearest shop 9 miles away taking ALL your own provisions is a must. Even our technology obsessed teenagers enjoyed the week especially when they found a phone signal in couple parts of the village! July 2009.
13th Comment Stunning scenery - beautiful location - abundant wildlife. Didn’t want to go home! March 2009.
14th Comment The photos did not do the cottage justice, on arrival after a 12 hour car journey from Birmingham to Arnisdale, I was over the moon about how beautiful the cottage was and its size as well. The setting was also amazing. The furnishings were perfect! May 2008.
15th Comment Its the first time I’ve found a place I’d like to return to. Arnisdale has everything - remoteness, mountain views, lochs and a glen. And I felt privileged to live amongst such friendly locals for the week we were there. Oct 2008.
16th Comment The locals make you very welcome, the scenery is fantastic, with great walking all around. March 2007.
