    the bach was very comfortable and in a beautiful location. Lanarch castle was a great place to stop and see while we were there.

  • An awesome bach not too far from the city

    An awesome bach not too far from the city. Great views of the harbour (our kids loved watching the huge cruise liners coming and going). Close to the penguins and albatross colonies. We had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend Cliffs_Edge.
