  6. Very high standard. Clean, airy, well equipped. Peaceful, tranquil spot. Wheelchair accessible. Aug 2010.
  7. Osprey Cottage is a wonderful escape from normal life styles it is homely and welcoming and Katy’s welcome tray of fresh Scottish Strawberries, a bottle of wine and the local newspaper is a lovely touch. The cottage has everything anyone could need my only complaint is that at the end of the holiday we had to leave, without a doubt we will be back again and again. July 2010.

In fact a perfect compromise. Aug 2008.
