The Stables were an ideal spot for our family gathering & we thoroughly appreciated the thought and attention to detail throughout the cottage. The living area is spacious & cosy with fantastic views over the loch. We had two wonderful days of weather in the week, which is a very acceptable average for the west coast in October. Super walks from the cottage, though difficult to find a great deal to do in the area in the pouring rain...again, no surprises there, so the games room is a fine solution to that problem.



Wonderful

A fabulous spot and well looked after on the estate. We much enjoyed going out on the boat, and also up to the loch to try to catch a fish! Would recommend taking out the rowing boat for this. Walking was good. Would recommend emphasising it is a sheep farm as far as dogs are concerned as unless they are truly sheep trained, walking is a bit limited as you would need to keep them on a lead. We would love to come again. Very peaceful and healing.

Stayed for a week at the end of July. We had every kind of weather in the space of a day, changing with the tide but in general it was dry and warm. The Stables cottage has a well equipped kitchen and lovely large living room with a patio door opening onto the garden with table and chairs and a wonderful view across the tidal sea loch. Two of the four bedrooms have views across the loch which is magical to wake up to.Walking along the shore we saw a sea otter and a sea eagle as well as a resident heron. No problem with midges although we were told they appear after dark. Everyone working on the estate made you feel very welcome. Would definitely visit again.



Beautiful, serene living space in peaceful location

The living space in the Stables is comfortable and easy to use, light, spacious, welcoming. Though the dining space is slightly small it's well integrated with the sensible, usable kitchen and a sensible fixed bench provides maximum seating for one side of the table without the clutter of multiple chairs. The kitchens are very well equiped (we were renting Caddleton too) and the larder space is wonderful. My only quibble with the Stables is a personal vendetta against electric hobs. The bedrooms are slightly small but beds and bedding are good quality and who needs much space in a holiday bedroom?
Being the West coast of Scotland in summer midges are of course an issue, what was less expected was continuous good weather which was wonderful, but in conjunction with midges, led to some uncomfortable nights where windows could not be left open and with no alternative means of cooling rooms. I've been pondering how to have "renter proof" midge screens for the windows but haven't solved the probem yet, sorry. Instead we all took the duvets out of their covers and slept under the covers only until about 3am when it got cool enough to pull the duvets over the top again. A glorious time was had by all.
