Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The best cottage we’ve ever had! Sept 2012.
  2. Great pleasure to stay here - really pleased we found this "gem". Sept 2012.
  3. A great location and there are stunning views from the house. A wide variety of birds visit the feeder on the balcony and deer visit the garden. It is tastefully decorated and furnished. We certainly want to go back, hopefully to have better weather for walking. June 2012.
  4. A fabulous property in which to relax and unwind. It was lovely and quiet without being too far off the beaten track. It was fantastically kitted out and the views were amazing. April 2012.
  5. Carness West is a beautiful accommodation, extremely comfortable with high quality finishes. We stayed early March, the weather was extremely changeable, we managed to get a couple of great days in the mountain, and enjoyed visiting Oban and surround area. It was great to relax in the evening with the log burning stove reflecting on the day. Wonderful property hope to be back soon. March 2012.
  6. This property is, without doubt, the best we have stayed in within the UK - which is one of the reasons we have returned time and again. Location is excellent - very quiet & peaceful with easy access to the shores of Loch Leven, and the property is well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. Excellent hillwalking & climbing in the area (Glencoe & Nevis range all within easy reach), plenty of historic castles and gardens to see, distilleries to visit, and boat trips to the multitude of islands which lie off Scotlands West coast. The rail trip from Fort William to Mallaig is also highly recommended. March 2012.
  7. The property is incredible! Beautiful scenary and a quiet secluded spot. A good walk to a pub on some slightly dodgy roads, but if you’re ok driving everywhere it is an excellent house. March 2012.
  8. Beautiful accommodation - spacious. In a very scenic location overlooking hills of Ballachullish and Glencoe. Oct 2011.
  9. Had everything we needed and more. Just as described, easy to find, spacious, fantastic views, peaceful, secluded yet close to local amenities. May 2011.
  10. Wood burner made cottage very comfortable on cold January evenings. Jan 2011.
  11. Stunning house with wonderful views, and although in own grounds etc not to far to travel for meals out and plenty to do in and around the area. Nov 2010.

  14. Fantastic house in a lovely location. April 2010.
  15. Very clean house and well equipped kitchen. Lots of space. Beautiful setting. Jan 2010.
  16. Property design was innovative, lots of natural light, spacious, wonderful views, good heating - warm, good facilities. Jan 2010.
  17. Excellent location, local shops, great access to lochs, glens and mountains. Many forest walks locally. Nov 2009.
  18. Very well equipped and being new everything was clean. Nov 2009.
  19. This is a wonderful property, which is in a wonderful location, and a superb choice for families. The property was not lacking in anything, and contained everything you could possibly need for a great holiday, well furnished and equipped, there was even games and puzzles to keep the children amused on the wet evenings! Oct 2009.
  20. Carness West is a beautiful property - excellent location and furnished & maintained to a very high standard. It’s a property which we have already stayed in twice this year, and one which we have booked again early in the new year. Oct 2009.
