                                                                jose g.


                                                                Un cottage spacieux, cosy et agréable dans un environnement magnifique. Idéalement situé pour visiter le Nord des Highlands et l'île de Skye. Applecross, Gairloch, Torridon sont des lieux que nous vous recommandons à proximité de Locharron.

                                                                Que ce soit à pied ou en voiture, toute le région est superbe et mérite que l'on s'y attarde.

                                                                Les jardins d'Attadale, inclus dans la réservation, sont un véritable bijou à ne pas manquer. Alec et Joanna, nos hôtes, sont disponibles et de bons conseils. Quelle que soit la question, ils réagissent et répondent en un temps record.

                                                                Pour les amoureux de la nature, de nombreux oiseaux et cerfs parfois très proches, sont un autre point d'intérêt.

                                                                Nous y retournerons avec plaisir.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Many thanks indeed, we all appreciate it

                                                                Lovely cottage in great location


                                                                Authentic and beautifully renovated cottage (even better than the photo's on the site suggest), clean and very well-equipped. The garden is spacious, with a lovely stream, and the best views of Attadale estate and Loch Carron. The estate itself is wonderful, especially for those who love hiking and/or fishing. Very friendly owners and Mrs. Watson at the launderette! The gardens are extensive and lovingly designed and maintained; plenty to discover. The same goes for the very scenic area; there is a lot to see and do. We would warmly recommend this property to anyone!

                                                                Cottage confortable,chaleureux, magnifique endroit

                                                                Christophe C.

                                                                Ce cottage correspondait exactement à ce que nous recherchions : un hébergement simple mais confortable dans un environnement calme. La vue sur le Loch Carron et les montagnes environnantes le matin au réveil, le son de la cascade, les moutons dans les champs, apercevoir un cerf en rentrant le soir, tout cela était un ravissement quotidien. Les enfants de leur côté ont adoré jouer dans le ruisseau qui coule dans le jardin. Le cottage possède tout le confort pour accueillir une famille de 5 personnes (6 au maximum), le petit poêle a été apprécié les jours de pluie. L'emplacement est idéal pour visiter la côte ouest des Highlands, et apprécier autant les lochs que la montagne. Des balades à pieds sont possibles au départ du cottage et les jardins d'Attadale, dont l'accès est gratuit pour les résidents des cottages, est magnifique et à visiter absolument. Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Wonderful lodging/stunning location!

                                                                Pam E.

                                                                Beautifully decorated cottage, with a very comfortable, homey feeling set in an amazingly beautiful area near the Isle of Skye in Northwest Scotland. Everything was handled in a most professional and cordial manner from start to finish regarding the rental of and our stay in the West Bothy at Attadale Estate.

                                                                I stayed at the cottage for a week with two teenage daughters and we enjoyed it very much. The kitchen was fully stocked with a nice assortment of everything you could need to prepare meals and there is even a caterer on the estate who will prepare home cooked meals to be picked up or brought to your cottage. Everything from homemade bread to natural, healthy pizza! We enjoyed sitting around the wood fire in the evenings watching BBC historical dramas on the DVD player. Since we are from America we thought that was as British as we could get! The Attadale gardens were amazing in their Fall colors...made some great photos. We hope to return in the future!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Many thanks indeed for making the time to leave these helpful comments. We are all so glad that you enjoyed your stay... and the gardens too.

                                                                Best wishes

                                                                Beautiful sights in a comforting home

                                                                When we arrived the cottages were beautifully clean and all prepared for us to simply relax into. The area around the cottages is beautiful and many an hour was spent wandering the Attadale Gardens, which were conveniently free for residents of the cottages.Vegetables and herbs from the gardens are also sold and make for a delicious dinner addition, as they are organic and fresh. The cottages were well equipped with all tools needed, and if there was anything wanting, the owners were so welcoming and friendly that it was easy to ask questions. There was also a good supply of books and movies to fill any spare time. It is in a location where it is easy to access beauty spots; such as the Isle of Skye and Loch Ness.

                                                                These cottages are well worth staying in for anyone looking for a quiet area to rest and relax.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Attadale is a 30,000 acre estate in the North West of Scotland. It stretches from the south shore of Loch Carron to Loch Monar, 15 miles away to the east. Attadale is ideally situated for touring the North West Highlands.

Other Activities: Fishing, walking, climbing, sailing Golf: Loch Carron Golf Club - www.lochcarrongolf.co.uk Lochcarron is a nine hole golf course, although there are actually eleven tees. It measures 3575 yards for eighteen holes and is an enjoyable challenge of accuracy. The Standard Scratch Score and par score for the course is 60. Every hole on the course offers the golfer something of a challenge. Whether it is simply avoiding the beach on the first three holes or trying to keep your ball on the humpbacked green at the seventh and sixteenth, all players will find the course a test of skill and character. Being partly along the shore, a player really knows when the wind blows. Due to the criss-cross nature of the course, the golfer can find themselves faced with a downwind tee shot, then one into the wind and finally a crosswind shot and all in the space of three holes. The greens are all quite small. Some are flat, some sloping and others with tricky breaks and borrows. They come into their own in the fine summer conditions.
