  • Fantastic lakeside location

    Fantastic lakeside location. We were there during bitter winter weather but the combination of the fire and electric column heaters kept us cosy. There was plenty of firewood in the shed. Lovely views from the lounge and of sunrises over the lake from the master bedroom. Bach very clean and tidy. Only issue was the top element in the oven wasn't working.

  • This is a wee gem of a bach

    This is a wee gem of a bach. Our family booked at the very last minute and didn't want to leave. Waking up and looking out at the lake is simply food for the soul. Loved the use of the kayaks, being able to light the fire and holidaying in such a special spot. We would love to return.
