Autumn watch expedition
Amazing house in an idyllic location. The photos do not do the house justice, downstairs is bigger than appears and the house exceeded our expectation. The location was ideal for our autumn watch expedition . We saw seals and red deer within the first hour, without moving 20m from the house. During our stay we saw otters playing, seals, golden eagles and stag red deer fighting, as well as lots of seabirds, including divers. We spent most of our time around Glenelg except one visit to the Isle of Skye. Our 9 year old son loved every minute there and looked forward to the daily visits from the peacocks and peahens. The only disappointing thing is the house is booked for the dates we would like in 2020, but we are not surprised. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you.

5/5 Excellent

A perfect week
Great house, beautiful views, so relaxing! We all loved it! Thankyou

Glenelg house
All admin was smooth and efficient. The house is easy to find once you have made it to Glenelg and is a lively place to stay. The house is clean, comfortable and a fabulous base whilst exploring the local area. It is well stocked with pots and pans, and we found all the beds comfortable. The passing wildlife - including peacocks- was an extra bonus. We would definitely recommend this house.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely location, beautiful drive to get here and great house.
The property was ideal; lots of natural light and space. A well equipped kitchen for self-catering but be sure to stock up as the nearest largish supermarket is about 40mins away. There's lots of places to visit around Glenelg and the highlight was a cycle ride to the pizza night at the local brewery taking in 2 brochs and a waterfall on the way. Our meal at the Glenelg Inn was delicious and the setting was amazing. Takeaway from the Eolach food truck was very good and such a lovey, quirky set-up. Eagle spotting at the ferry cafe with a great coffee was lovely too and seeing porpoises after a visit to Sheena’s tea hut was just brilliant. Lovely week!
