Customer Reviews of Ceilidhtail Cottage, nr Loch Ness - Sleeps 5/6
1st comment: Plenty of space with excellent views of Loch Ness and the old castle. Dec 2010.
2nd comment: A lovely house with a beautiful view. Plenty of room for 6 people. A large kitchen and downstairs a relaxing whirlhpool . We really enjoyed our holidays. July 2010.
3rd comment: Spacious, comfortable and wonderful views. April 2010.
4th comment: We went in search of a holiday which would offer us a relaxing but comfortable stay, we found this at this cottage. It was welcoming, homely without being too fussy. The girls especially enjoyed the jacuzzi!!! The scenery was fantastic and each window showed a different view. Even the weather was great, the only negative point for us who went with dogs was the garden was not enclosed and I would of appreciated someone telling us about the possibility of ticks. However, this did not spoil our holiday in any way. Sitting on the terrace watching the sun go down was a memory that I will remember. July 2008.
5th comment: Wonderful views and tranquil location. April 2007.
6th comment: The presentation of the cottage on the website led us to expect a superior property, but it was even better than expected! The cottage was like home. Everything one could possibly want is there. The price is perhaps higher than some, but definitely worth it. The weather was fantastic, so we were spoiled when it came to the views. The single track road to the cottage was a bit daunting at first to one not used to them, but you soon get used to it. The village of Drumnadrochit is pleasant and has all that one would normally need - the village shop is even open on Sunday! In bad weather, the experience would have been different, but then the cottage would offer a warm refuge. Just can’t say enough...just superb! July 2006.
7th comment: A beautifully situated house with exceptional views, for which the photographs cannot do justice. The property was well appointed and maintained with every need met. We had the most wonderful time and would return in an instant. Oct 2006.

10th comment: The property was wonderful with fantastic views and great facilities. It was a brilliant place to just rest and relax. The owners were also very friendly and helpful. We had a great time and as well as just chilling out went horse riding in Drumnadrochit, white water rafting at Fort Augustus and fed reindeer at Aviemore! Sept 2006.
