Customer Reviews of Crofters Cottage, Wester Ross - Sleeps 5
"A perfect place to unwind..."
Cottage is maybe a bit outdated, but given the surroundings, that's no negative point... On our first night we even got a welcoming bagpipe concert fro one of the neighbours :-) Upon arrival we found a clean & neat cottage, little smelly (but that must have been from the moist peat we found inside) but cosy. It was well equipped, nothing to complain about. We had a great stay, enjoyed much of the nature and the beach.
The whole experiance was made easy from choosing the cottage to payments, instructions and the property itself. The property was a detatched cottage but had all the amenities to make your holiday relaxing whatever the weather. The location was right on the coast with a 2 minute walk to a sandy cove, Garloch was a 15 min drive but had stores in for everthing you would have wanted. There are numerous pubs, restaurants and fast food outlets all within 15 min drive. Apart from the sandy cove next to the property you also had beaches at Red Point and Garloch along with other numerous areas along the coast. The scenary is to die for with cascading waterfalls and panoramic views of the coastline or highlands. The best thing about the holiday was the restful peace and quite along with the natural beauty of the area.
