“marvellous place to visit Achiltibuie”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Lovely homely yet very well renovated and equipped cottage. Marvellous sun room, great for pilates! Owners have been very thoughtful about providing local maps, information, books and DVDs. Warm cosy fire to come back too after longs walks, especially on rainy days. We stocked up for the week in Tesco in Ullapool and good local shop for some extras. The summer isles are so beautiful, scenery breathtaking. Strongly recommend The Loan.

“Fantastic cottage in fantastic landscapes”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Definitely our best rental ever (as far as the house itself is concerned)! Beautifully decorated with typical furnitures and magniificent lithos by local artists, and so well equipped, it has its own specific soul. The kitchen has an amazing stove, which keeps the kitchen itself and the livingroom nearby very warm and cosy, and it is so wellcoming after a day outdoor with those particular weather conditions of Ullapool ! A special mention to the bathroom, really outstanding !!! We felt like having our own Spa, and once again, the first thing we would do on our coming back home after a day outside was to have a bath or a shower in that wonderful bathroom. It is one of those things that make you really feel at home! We used the fire place too, everything was specially prepared for us. The community in Achiltibuie is amazingly alive, there are exhibitions of local artists, musical evenings, local activities for families (walks), and 2 restaurants or coffee shops open in the evening. The landscape, specially the mountains' line, is exceptionnal too, all around the Coigach peninsula. The most beautiluf spot I've ever seen in Scotland with the Glencoe valley. A mention of the beach too (Archnaaird), astonishing, but one definitely needs a special equipment to try the water! Our main problem was the weather, not very nice during our stay...

“Adorable Cottage with Amazing Views over the Summer Isles”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This truly was an idillic escape to the Summer Isles. Went along with friends and had a fantastic time soaking in fresh air and long walks along the beaches. We climbed Stac Pollaidh, went off on a boat trip with the local fisherman to explore the Isle and caught sight of cute seals. Headed to local pub which served fresh scallops caught that morning and got to know the friendly locals.
The Cottage had everything you need - fresh towels, wifi, very comfortable beds, two beautifully designed living rooms, kitchen will all amenities. Felt totally relaxed and enjoyed a couple of nights in cooking, with the fire on watching some tv and reading books.
1 minute walk to local shop if you need anything which is very sweet.
So easy to get to from Inverness airport - would recommend to families, friends or even if you want to go by yourself.
Definitely going to visit next year!

“A beautiful highland retreat”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a divine stay in the wonderfully equipped Loan cottage.
The house was snug, and spacious, wonderfully equipped and utterly charming. The house is slightly set back looking onto the sea which is on your doorstep and turn around you have the rolling hills at the back. There is so much to do, even when the weather is changeable! from long walks to fishing and boating trips round the Summer Isles. This highland retreat is perfect for anyone who loves the fresh air, a cosy well equipped home to return to and a wonderful Scottish holiday. For me The Loan ticks all the boxes. I will be returning.

“The Perfect Highland Holiday House”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I cannot rate this house more highly; we arrived to stunning views, a very generous welcome package with all the essentials (wine), a folder bursting with info about the area and a fire laid out. The cottage is cosy and well stocked with everything you need, and the new addition of a bright, sunny "day room" makes it perfect for all seasons. Following the instructions from our info pack we called the local postman to arrange a boat trip, dined out on freshly caught scallops at the local pub where we stayed up until the wee hours dancing around the pool table with the fishermen who had caught them! Discussions are already under-way for a return trip next year.

“loved it”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was our first time north form Ullapool and probably the nicest, homely and well appointed cottage in the area. Everything was in order .... would have loved to stay for the rest of the summer to explore the stunning surroundings. I'm sure we will do this in the near future knowing now that 'The Loan' is the superb cottage to come home to!
