We were a group of 8 ages 54,53, 40+ 40+, 19, 17, 10 & 7 visiting the area for an 80th Birthday celebration.
Booking was easy.
Supplied directions were spot on.
Picking up the key was a doddle.
Paying the security deposit and having it returned was no problem.
This house suited our needs perfectly. Its located in the countryside next to another 3 properties of different styles and with plenty of privacy. Parking for 3 cars in front of the double garage was no problem. We drove from Inverness Airport which took about 35 minutes.
Its a spacious modern house which has been fitted out to a high standard. It's an L shaped design and the downstairs rooms are interesting shapes - not just standard boxes. The lounge is a couple of steps down from the rest of the house.It was close to freezing temperatures outside during our visit but the house was lovely and warm from the underfloor heating. We didn't need the log burner to heat the lounge but we did light it and it looked great.
On entering the front door there is a large utility room with a wet room off of it and also access to the garage. Next to that there is a music room with electric organ and loads of DVDs and kids toys. There is a good sized kitchen which is open plan onto the hall and staircase. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The dishwasher was not working during our stay but was not a problem for us.The dining room is double height with a large window. The lounge is accessible from the dinning room or the hall and it is a good size with plenty seating for 8 people.
Upstairs there are 4 good sized bedrooms with an ensuite to the master bedroom. Each bedroom has loads of wardrobe space. The family bathroom is massive and has a powerful shower and a whirlpool bath (didn't try that). The large upstairs landing is fitted out as a library with loads of books to chose from.
Outside there is a good sized garden but it was a bit cold to be outside. The cold didn't stop some of us using the outside hot tub which I'm told was very good.
In the garage there was some sports equipment (bikes, golf clubs etc) which we could have used if time permitted.
The local area is a bit of a hidden gem although I may be biased having been brought up nearby but moved away 30 years ago. There are fantastic beaches, golf courses, whisky distilleries, dolphins, hill walking, coastal walks, good food and loads more.
We will probably try to book this property in the future when visiting family in this area and hopefully staying longer next time.
