Customer Reviews of Aros, Balmacara, Sleeps 4

1st comment: A very comfortable house in a great location. Not far from the main road but no noise! Great to watch the changing skies form the sun room. Superb location to travel around the region. Oct 2011.

2nd comment: Wonderful, quiet loch side location with superb views. Very well appointed - central heating a major plus instead of the usual Night Storage Heaters. Made the whole cottage comfortable and warm. Sitting in the sun room to enjoy the lovely views across the loch and surrounding hills - so relaxing. Very well situated for access to Isle of Skye and all parts of western Scotland. Sept 2011.
