Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Excellent location for walks including plenty of monroes. The house catered for all of ours needs including a bed for our dog. Downstairs nice and spacious for during the day and upstairs nice and cosy with the log fire to relax after those long walks. May 2012.
  2. Scara Brae was a located in a stunning part of the country in the shadow of atmospheric hills, Glen Coe and some wonderful lochs. The house was excellent and easily fitted 6 adults and a toddler. The two entertaining areas meant you could easily have some time by yourself. The house was very well equipped and the drying room was excellent for wet conditions. Sept 2011.
  3. Great location for exploring the highlands. Across from the house is the local primary school, the playground was left open, which allowed the children in our party to safely play run around and play frisbee etc as there is no ’garden area’ at the house for children to play in. We had an excellent family holiday at Skara Brae. April 2011.
  4. Lovely property, really comfy and homely, fully catered for. We had a fab time. x
  5. Ample room and facilities for five of us. Feb 2011.
  6. Property was beautiful, good position, well looked after, well equipped, comfortable, would love to go back someday. Oct 2010.
  7. Lovely cottage in a peaceful village location. Good for access to a variety of walks, including Glencoe, and for mountain biking. Great place to relax & chill out! Sept 2010.
  8. Skara Brae was an outstanding property, beautifully built and well thought out regarding space and layout. It had everything that was needed and required and more besides. It was extremely clean and welcoming on arrival, the owner couldn’t have been more helpful, courteous or polite if he tried. Would absolutely recommend this property to anyone! Aug 2010.
  9. Very Spacious, everything you needed was included. June 2010.
  10. Location, owner very friendly and helpful, very clean and very well equipped. There is an additional bathroom containing toilet, sink and shower over bath on the top floor. May 2010.
  11. A well laid out property with everything to hand. The seperate upstairs living room with log burning stove was superb. April 2010.
  12. Location - easy access to Glen Coe. The unusal design, it was really nice to stay somewhere so different. Mar 2010.
  13. This property is in a fantastic location for exploring the local area. The house is very well equipped - a real home from home! Loved the first floor living room for relaxing and the large kitchen, dining and living area downstairs is great. Loved the utility room too. Oct 2009.
  14. Everything you need was there, it was clean and welcoming. Sept 2009.
  15. A wonderful property for touring the West Highlands, with easy access to main tourist routes in a quiet but not isolated location. Local people were very friendly and helpful. Surprisingly spacious and very well equipped with wonderful views of the mountains and a stream running behind the property. Aug 2009.
  16. Fantastic size, very clean and comfortable lots of facilities available. Super. Aug 2009.
  17. Lovely cottage and excellent facilities, many thanks. May 2009.
  18. The accommodation also had a drying/airing room which was ideal for wet clothes, ski wear and walking kit. This was not mentioned beforehand but was invaluable, due to time of year and nature of holiday. Dog beds were even provided to encourage dog owners to be responsible. Feb 2009.
  19. A great house is a great location. Munro baggers are spoilt for choice in this area. Nov 2008.
