Customer Reviews of Burns Cottage, nr Drumnadrochit - Sleeps 2

1st comment: This property is off the main road and as such is very quiet, perfect if you want one of those "get away from it all" holidays. We stayed at this property in early November and found that alot of the local pubs / restaurants had closed for the season so bear this in mind when you want to stay. the property is very clean and very well fitted out, in fact it was a nice little, cosy home from home, we thouroughly enjoyed our stay and would return again without a problem. Nov 2011.

2nd comment: Great sized cottage with lovely rooms, big bed, and cosy sofas. The whirlpool bath is a special extra! Co-op shop around the corner for food etc. Oct 2011.
