Please fix the window in the hallway this has been broken for a few years now.. Also mattress in the first room isn’t great (something like the end room mattress would be better, that is wonderfully comfy!). Apart from those items, our return visit (3rd) and we wasn’t disappointed, such a lovely location and wonderfully equipped for a family holiday. Thank you x

This was the best equipped self catering cottage in which I have stayed .. The only thing I couldn't find was a lemon juicer, but this was not problem. The cottage was very clean & comfortable with a new suite in the living room. We enjoyed watching the vast array of birds in the garden & were happy to find a supply of bird food in the utility room. We also had deer in the garden. Initially the cottage was a bit cold as the weather outside was cold. We contacted the owner, as there was a notice asking us not to interfere with he heating system. The problem was rectified that day. The week before had been warm so the heating had been lowered. We had a great holiday & would highly recommend Glen View.

I visited with my husband, 3 children(17, 10 and 8) and my parents and had a really good holiday at Glen View.. The weather was brilliant so we made full use of the large garden and surrounding area. The house itself was well equipt and spacious and although there were 7 of us, it did not feel cramped in the slightest. There was no wifi but this was not necessarily a bad thing as it got the children out playing together and we were well aware of this fact when we booked the cottage. The location was beautiful although quite far away from local shops/amenities and it did mean quite a bit of travelling for day trips. The location on the Sykes map against the location on google maps was slightly out which caused a bit of confusion when initially finding the cottage and we ended up stopping at Eagle Brae to ask for directions as this is where the map took us to. Once we found the cottage, we were very pleased and had an amazing week.

The location was fantastic and being able to sit in this beautiful cottage admiring the wildlife and views was just perfect.. The garden was also fully enclosed so perfect for the dogs.

The property was excellent the photos doesn't do it justice it was well equipped the only problem we had was the midgies we were bitten so much.. But apart from that it was a brilliant holiday

So comfortable and extremely well-equipped - a real home-from-home.. Excellent location for visiting all the tourist attractions in the highlands and for many scenic walks and views. Perfect for our dog too as the garden was securely enclosed as was the driveway. Fabulous week, very much enjoyed by all.

The location of the property was perfect, peacefully tucked away but plenty of routes around about to explore. Perfect for family, kids and dogs. The wildlife was present and breathtaking views in abundance.

The house was warm, roomy and very well equipped. There were great views within this lovely area and we loved the birds and wildlife.

The cottage is an excellent property, and very well situated in a beautiful area. It is a great choice if you like hillwalking as there are plenty of hills in the immediate area. The beds in the cottage are very comfortable, not being soft or saggy, which was invaluable for me as I have back trouble. The sitting room and dining room are also good and generously sized. We like the fact the garden is full of birds, and the wagtails and great tits are very friendly.

Lovely holiday in a fabulous house.

We rented Glen View for 5 nights. The house is very spacious, nicely designed and comfortable with all mod cons. The location, near Glen Affric, on a quiet road close to the river and woods, short drive from the stunning Glen Affric and surrounding mountains, is fantastic. We saw lots of birds and wildlife. Would definitely rebook. Owners were very helpful. Highly recommended.
