Customer Reviews of Glen View Barn near Cannich Glen Affric - Sleeps 8

1st comment: What a marvellous venue for strolling out your back gate into a lovely wooded area complete with meadering lake, little wooden "swing" bridges and freedom for the dogs to run. The house itself offered EVERY comfort we could think of (even providing poo bags for the dogs) and the owners have gone the extra mile to make it a comfortable stay. Highly recommended. April 2012.

2nd comment: A lovely location and very, very quiet. If you want peace. then this is the place. The Deer was seen but alas not the Pine Marten. Well equipped and comfortable. Sept 2011.

3rd comment: Excellent accommodation. Wonderful wild life. Good location for touring. June 2011.

4th comment: Beautiful House and gardens, well equipped, everything I needed was there. One of the best holiday homes I have rented. The birds were a delight, we had a cuckoo visit every day, and we saw a whole herd of deer in the field behind the house. June 2011.

5th comment: Excellent accommodation! Everything you need, would return without question. May 2011.

6th comment: We were absolutely delighted with Glen View, it was a real home from home - we just couldn’t fault the property at all. April 2011.

7th comment: It was a nice and comfortable house, we had a good time there. April 2011.

The cottage is an excellent property, and very well situated in a beautiful area. It is a great choice if you like hillwalking as there are plenty of hills in the immediate area. The beds in the cottage are very comfortable, not being soft or saggy, which was invaluable for me as I have back trouble. The sitting room and dining room are also good and generously sized. We like the fact the garden is full of birds, and the wagtails and great tits are very friendly.

The location of the property was perfect, peacefully tucked away but plenty of routes around about to explore. Perfect for family, kids and dogs. The wildlife was present and breathtaking views in abundance.
