Customer Reviews of Harbour Cottage, Ballantrae, sleeps 4
1st comment: We loved the cottage and the area despite having to go to a funeral while we were there. Therefore we didn’t spend as much time exploring the area as we would have wished. The cottage was a delight in every way. It was spotless, well equipped, beautifully decorated, and homely. We loved getting driftwood from the beach for the wood burner every day. If you don’t mind a bit of a journey we recommend Braidwood’s at Dalry for a decently priced unpretentious Michelin starred meal. Great for wildlife spotting particularly seabirds. March 2012.
2nd comment: The cottage was excellent - the owners were there to greet us when we arrived - a nice touch. The cottage was very well equipped - modern, yet with a cottage feel - we really enjoyed the real fire, the layout and the terrific cultural items - books , music and films. Aug 2011.
