Customer Reviews of Skara Brae, Ballachulish, Sleeps 8
1st comment: Scara Brae was a located in a stunning part of the country in the shadow of atmospheric hills, Glen Coe and some wonderful lochs. The house was excellent and easily fitted 6 adults and a toddler. The two entertaining areas meant you could easily have some time by yourself. The house was very well equipped and the drying room was excellent for wet conditions. Sept 2011.
2nd comment: Great location for exploring the highlands. Across from the house is the local primary school, the playground was left open, which allowed the children in our party to safely play run around and play frisbee etc as there is no ’garden area’ at the house for children to play in. We had an excellent family holiday at Skara Brae. April 2011.

17th Comment The accommodation also had a drying/airing room which was ideal for wet clothes, ski wear and walking kit. This was not mentioned beforehand but was invaluable, due to time of year and nature of holiday. Dog beds were even provided to encourage dog owners to be responsible. Feb 2009.
18th Comment A great house is a great location. Munro baggers are spoilt for choice in this area. Nov 2008.
