A stunning luxury villa, with breathtaking views and so peaceful. Well equipped kitchen with lovely rooms. With the only noises being the occasional sheep or pheasant. Highly recommended.

Awesome Highland Break
Jo provided detailed information for us on how to check in and instructions for using the hot tub and sauna etc. The house was very well appointed with top of the range appliances. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the ensuite bathroom/wet room made it feel like we were staying in a spa resort after hopping in and out of the sauna and hot tub. Sainsbury's delivered an online shop without a problem and there was plenty of fridge and freezer room with 2 fridges and a full sized freezer. We enjoyed the wildlife that visited the garden and the house also made a good base to explore further into the Highlands from. The victorian viaduct just around the corner was a lovely surprise. We hope to return!
