1st comment: Have stayed at this property and the other nearby many time over the past 10 years. March 2012.

2nd comment: Lovely property and location however a few finishing touches would not go a miss. Nov 2011.

3rd comment: The Cottage was superbly appointed in a beautiful and remote location. I do not think the accomodation could have been better. Oct 2011.

4th comment: A beautiful lodge in a wonderful location. Can’t recommend Gairlochy Bay highly enough. Everything about the place was perfect... except the weather, pity the owners hadn’t arranged that too! Sept 2011.

5th comment: Fantabulous experice. July 2011.

6th comment: Fabulous venue. We loved the Caledonian canal and watching the boats. We even had one there our selves. The facilities are fabulous, the lighting is fabulous, the beds are fabulous, the flat screen is fabulous. What more can I say? It was great despite the dubious weather. We loved it a second time around! July 2011.

7th comment: Wonderful place to stay. Beautiful house, we had a wonderful stay there. Thanks for letting us share your beautiful house. May 2011.

8th comment: The views from the property are outstanding and it is well located for touring the area or for just relaxing watching the boats go by. The standard of the accommodation is excellent. The owner does provide bottled water on arrival as the tap water is somewhat of an acquired taste but we found that we had to buy extra water during our stay so we would recommend bringing some with you. April 2011.
