Customer Reviews of Wilderness Retreat, Gairloch, Sleeps 4
1st comment: The cottage was very well equipped and extremely comfortable. It was set in a beautiful location, overlooking the loch to the mountains beyond. I could quite happily live there full time. Even the poor weather couldn’t dampen my enthusiasm. It was so peaceful. Oct 2011.
2nd comment: We were really impressed by the accommodation - clean, comfortable, spacious and modern. The location was lovely and the surrounding area beautiful with magnificent views from the house across the loch to the mountains. The kids loved the beaches - there’s one almost on the door step and another two within a few minutes drive - and the well equipped games room was a bonus. We’d have used it more but the weather was (unexpectedly..) very good. July 2011.
