1st comment: Excellent, first class accommodation in a beautiful location. Ideal for a quiet break, for good walking and enjoyment of some of the best of Scotland. Owner’s attention to detail made this a home from home. May 2012.

2nd comment: A very well appointed, and very comfortable cottage - superb views from the front door and an extremely warm welcome. "Thistle Do" did very well indeed. March 2012.

3rd comment: Spotless, warm cottage. Owners live next door and were very helpful, even driving me somewhere when we locked our car keys in the car! They also supplied a welcome ’gift’ of a small bottle of wine and whiskey. A great start to a holiday. It’s the little touches that determine great accommodation from good accommodation. Oct 2011.

July 2011.
