Customer Reviews of Island Bay Cottage, Sallachy, nr. Dornie, Sleeps 4
1st comment: Wonderful location, great for wildlife watching & walking. Accommodation was lovely and clean, nice and warm, well-equipped and fantastic views. Friendly owners. Feb 2012.
2nd comment: This property was all that we could wish for - so peaceful - no passing traffic and a beautiful view from the lounge window - a sea loch and mountains. As we had several wet days we were content to watch the changing light on the loch and to keep a sharp look out for the otters! When the weather did improve we rode our bikes up the valley for miles and did not see a car all day! Feb 2012.
