It is an excellent area for a great holiday and with a marvelous house like Burgie to return to at the end of the day, you will have a truly memorable holiday.
We enjoyed a lovely weekend at Ben Wyvis. It is an absolutely beautiful spot and the views are spectacular. A taxi driver told us about a local viewing spot for the Northern Lights and so we were on Aurora watch much to my husband's excitement! The lodge was great for us, a base while we attended a family celebration. It was comfortable and warm.
A wonderful venue for our special weekend. Had everything we needed and in an excellent location. Plenty varied things to do in the surrounding area. Enjoyed the coal fires and the large dining table in particular. Water pressure not so good in some of the showers.
