Drudaig cottage was the most beautiful picturesque cottage you could wish for.. Set in beautiful amazing surroundings you couldn’t want for anything else. The cottage itself was beautiful , wonderfully decorated. Spotlessly clean, warm and cozy. Dave and Linda have done an amazing job. We were met by Dave who is very friendly and a worm cosy log burning fire done by Linda to welcome us. The pictures of the cottage definitely doesn’t do it justice. You’d have to see it to experience how lovely it is. The local people are very warm friendly people, and the wildlife is beautiful. We had visitors on our veranda every night. You definitely don’t need the tv There’s also beautiful scenery and wildlife to see by walking or car. Our whole week was so relaxing and beautiful it went to quickly. It was our first time to the cottage but definitely not our last. We’ve booked again for next year. Everything about the cottage and area is definitely a gem. Thank you Dave and Linda for a wonderful holiday. Always ready to help and keeping us well stocked with wood and all the other little touches you left. See you next year. X

15 minute drive down a single track road, but the views from the cottage are fabulous.. No shop or pub nearby but plenty wildlife. Dont forget to take plenty bird seed and jam sandwiches for the badger and pine martins. Cottage very warm and has a great stove fire.

Cottage warm, comfortable and friendly.. The view is to die for sitting on the verandah. Nightly visits from badgers and a pine marten as long as you put food out for them. Just wonderful x

Loved the cottage - felt like home.. Extremely restful. The view is jaw dropping. The wildlife also jaw dropping - being able to see badgers and pinemartins eating on the verandah is really special. Basically loved it.

Well what can I say we don't want to leave,the cottage is lovely and remote just what we wanted for a peaceful break away and to celebrate a birthday. The cottage has everything you need and you are truly spoilt in Scotland as there are so many beautiful places to see and you don't have to travel hours to see them. If walking is your thing then Scotland is the place to be. Dave the owner is lovely and is only a phone call away if you need anything. The cottage is like a home from home and we couldn't have asked for anywhere better to stay. On a winter night the log fire is lovely and cosy. Every evening you see wildlife including rare pine Martin's and badgers and both will eat if you leave food out. It is amazing to see! As stated previously there is no Wi-Fi but we did not miss this, it was refreshing to get away from the rat race and enjoy the scenery and all the amazing things on the doorstep. Thank you so much for the stay and we are already planning our return.

We had a fabulous Christmas week at Druidaig cottage, the kids and dog loved the long walks on the beach.. The cottage was cosy and welcoming when we arrived home in the evenings, with everything we needed. Lovely owners who were very helpful when I managed to get the car stuck in a ditch. Watching the pine martens and badgers every night was an amazing experience. We will definitely be back soon.

We arrived just before new year and after spending 10 hours travelling the sight of the cottage was a welcome relief.. The views are just stunning. Every morning we sat on the veranda and it was pure bliss. The children were excited when we got to see the pine martens and the badger come every night and if your lucky enough you might spot the deer coming down from the mountains behind the cottage. This is the first year out of many in scotland where we have not had to spend a penny on things to do with the children. You have everything on your doorstep for free. Take the road to the left at the bottom of the driveway and follow all the way past the lodge and you'll come to a large tree swing. Further round through a gate you'll come to another cottage on the loch front. If you go past that and follow the path for a while you will eventually come to an old viking broch. There are also the barracks in Glenelg. The beach there is also nice. Past Glenelg is Sandaig. The walk to the beach is nice. You get to see the remembrance stone for Gavin Maxwell and his otter Elda and on the beach is a beautiful cottage that belonged to Raef Payne. The list goes on of the things you can do around this area, and after a long day hiking or just spending time with the family. You come back to a wonderful cottage that is warm and cosy and has everything you need to relax. I will most definitely be recommending it to friends and family.

Beautiful cottage! It has been fairly recently extended to a lovely standard and is spacious, comfy and really well equipped with everything you would need for a break away. Location wise, it is a really tranquil part of Scotland and Letterfearn is very quiet, so if its peace and relaxation you are after, this is your place. We had a lovely time enjoying the local area, its really handy for Skye etc too. The only thing that did put me off was there were a few days we couldn't freely roam as the estate owner was hunting so it did curtail us a little and as a huge animal lover, this was the last thing i wanted on my doorstep. What WAS lovely on the door step (literally) was Pine Martins, a Badger and loads of lovely wild birds - these came daily for feeding and were an absolute delight !!

Fantastic cottage in a lovely location.. It is kitted out with pretty much eveything you could need and was immaculate when we arrived. Nightly visits from pine martens and badgers on the porch looking for food. They are not noisy and just go on their way if no food is out, we chose to give them something as the kids loved seeing them a couple of feet away as they can be seen through the patio doors of the lounge and seem unbothered by an audience! It is very peaceful, little background noise at any time other than occasional vehicles. Walks down to the beach and along the road yield some amazing views of the surrounding mountains, Eilean Donan castle can be seen from that side, nicely lit up at night. Reaching the cottage is done via a 5 mile stretch of single track road that winds around the loch, there are plenty of passing places but it requires an amount of care as it is lined with ditches and drops down to the beach and I don't imagine an easy recovery is possible! One thing to note - the online listing indicates a pub and shop within 4 miles, this is not the case, nearest pub is around 8 miles away on the other side of the loch and shop is part of a filling station at around 9 miles. This has a decent selection of items. For a bigger selection the Co-Op in Kyle of Localsh is good. It wasn't a huge issue but did catch us out in terms of expectations for ability to shop on arrival, if you are due to arrive quite late it is better to have some basics with you.

We stayed here in August 2018 - 2 adults, 2 children (aged 3 years, and 3 months) - very remote but beautiful location with everything you'd need in a property, with the possible exception of WiFi for the young children to access games and videos when parents are trying to have a lie in or just need 20 minutes peace and quiet! Everything else brilliant. Highly recommended, loads to do in the area. Wildlife visiting the property each evening for feeding was a real highlight.

One of the most relaxing weeks of my entire life, the cottage was just magical in incredible surroundings.. Amazing views on every side, a plethora of wildlife right on your doorstep, or in this case mostly on the veranda. Really cannot recommend Druidaig Cottage enough, we'll certainly be going back.

Claymore restaurant on isle of skye is superb as is the glass bottom boat.. Take a full day in Inverness and take the boat trip then dinner at Johnny foxes is a treat and kids can go in too.

Wonderful cottage and beautiful location and view.. Great walks and vistas from the door and lots of wildlife. The balcony is a real bonus, no wonder it is popular! So grateful they allowed our dog - perfect place for her. Owners very helpful.

Location, location, location! If you want to be near a few shops or a stroll to the pub this isn’t the cottage for you. This is the perfect cottage for chilling and enjoying all that nature has to offer. There are some beautiful walks straight from the door, incredible views over the loch and the Five Sisters, nightly visits from the badgers, pine martens and mice all queuing for their supper. For us this was heaven. From the moment we’d travelled the five miles along the loch to Druidaig and turned the corner to the cottage, veranda lights were on, a warm welcome awaited - we were in love. Perfect base for exploring the highlands or just sitting back and chilling. Next time we need two weeks! The dog loved it too.

Stunning location, cottage is actually more beautiful than pictures on website show.. Sykes were extremely helpful when we were trying to find a cottage suitable for babies and dogs! Would definitely go back, we got exactly what we wanted.....an isolated, cosy cottage with lovely views and lots of wildlife visiting!

This cottage is built up on a hill overlooking Loch Duich. Sitting on the wrap round veranda taking in the views was absolutely breathtaking. Evening walks along the single track road at the side of the loch with the dog watching seals play in the loch was a daily occurrence. Second to last property in Leterfearn so nice and secluded. Dave the owner couldn't have been more helpful. Red deer come down from the hills at night to eat the grass in front of the cottage, saw pine martins on the veranda. Was going to keep this little gem quiet but that would be selfish, I will,definitely be back.

Beautiful cottage with amazing scenery and wildlife.. The veranda made our trip. We sat each evening whatever the weather enjoying the view. The owners were on hand if there was anything you needed. Very clean and comfortable cottage.

A beautiful cottage in a lovely situation. The cottage was spacious, comfortable and warm. Right opposite Eilean Donan castle with views to the 5 Sisters of Kintail and on 6000 acres of walkable hills. Loved it!

We stayed at Druidaig cottage in May half term - family holiday with two children (7 and 5). The owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and we were blessed with wall to wall sunshine for the whole week. We absolutely loved everything about the cottage, amazing surroundings and scenery. The kids loved the great outdoors and spent the whole time playing in the gardens, the loch side and going for many walks nearby. A special treat was seeing the porpoise in Loch Duich one morning from the balcony. Binoculars are a must and I spent a large part of the holiday peering through mine. No internet or wifi signal which is exactly what we wanted - excellent. If you want it then a phone signal works fine. Absolutely idyllic and we had an amazing time.

We had a very friendly welcome from the owners. The property is a sympathetically restored traditional highland cottage which is unspoilt by sensitive development. A very well equipped cottage in a fantastic location with beautiful views and scenery. The veranda makes a great place to sit and make the most of the views and eat breakfast/meals. A lovely loch side cottage with great opportunities for seeing wildlife.

Druidaig cottage is in an amazing location overlooking Loch Druich and with mountain views, the perfect place to 'get away from it all.' The cottage has everything you need, was spotlessly clean and had comfortable beds.

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Druidaig Cottage. The owner couldn't do more to help and we had a fantastic time. The views across Loch Duich towards the Five Sisters of Kintail are something you'll never tire of looking at and we were spoilt with wall to wall sunshine for the whole of our stay. If you are looking for an isolated, get away from it all break with amazing views and some fantastic walking then I can't recommend it highly enough.

We have just returned from a week at Druidaig cottage and we have enjoyed a wonderful sunny week in this traditional highland cottage which has been sympathetically restored and is unspoilt, sitting perfectly in its beautiful and peaceful lochside location. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable and the veranda is a great place to sit and enjoy breakfast and evenings enjoying the stunning views towards the 5 Sisters of Kintail. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and want you to enjoy your stay. The cottage is well placed for exploring the area including Wester Ross and Isle of Skye and for walking in the highlands. A great cottage which we highly recommend.
