4th comment: Absolutely fantastic location and the standard of the accommodation was second to none. This was our second time at Shepherds Rest and it will be our cottage of choice next time. July 2011.
5th comment: Brilliant property - a real home from home. Both Ilona and Gavin have worked so hard to achieve their ambitions and give you a wonderful welcome. The house is extremely comfortable and is of high standards. We have stayed in many self catering properties and this is by far the best ever. If only there were more owners such as Ilona and Gavin. Torcastle is stunningly beautiful - where else can you peg your washing on the line and see Ben Nevis. June 2011.
