Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Hall

We all enjoyed our week at Achnacarry.. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean and relaxing. It was unfortunate that with the current pandemic, the museum had to remain closed, we would have enjoyed learning more about the Cameron Clan. We understand why the visitor welcome packs had to be removed, but not knowing the area, it would have been useful to have some local information. On the whole, a very enjoyable holiday, despite the midges!

This 3 bedroom apartment is perfect for either a family or a group of adults sharing a holiday.. It is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The grounds of the Achnacarry Estate are quite stunning and we spent many happy hours exploring them and taking photos. Unfortunately, the deer did not appear that week, which was a very hot one. Perhaps they were keeping cool in the woods. The waterfall is a particular delight and the Cameron Museum is well worth a visit for exhibits and information about the Cameron clan and the Jacobites. We also found the apartment ideally situated for visiting many famous historical sites. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our week at Achnacarry and would certainly recommend it.

Merlin was a beautiful apartment on a remote Scottish Estate, and it really was pretty remote, but with a car was no issue.. The wildlife that visited each evening at dusk was an absolute joy to behold. On one evening 8 large deer were grazing on the grass directly outside our windows - a real bonus. If you want to get close to nature this is definitely the place to go. Although no mobile signal the WiFi was perfect so could keep in touch via WhatsApp. Although being electronically isolated can be quite refreshing. Many thanks, will certainly look at your company again when we are looking for self catering accommodation.

Everything was perfect, from walking in to the well presented apartment to the beautiful location. The accommodation was comfortable and very well equipped for the self catering family. There was stunning wildlife right on our doorstep too, we were visited by a deer on the lawn! We had a fabulous time at Merlin and would not hesitate to book again for next year.

We loved the fact that the apartment was close to a loch with nothing much nearby. We had Deer coming down to the green behind the apartment every evening. There was plenty of other wildlife around the area and the whole location was very peaceful with no noises other than animals.

Merlin is an absolute perfect place to stay if you want to get away from the city. The apartment was excellent, the grounds around the apartments are perfect for walking, cycling and any other activities that you want to do. It is peaceful, beautiful and overall an absolute perfect place to stay.

The standard of the accommodation was excellent and the location was fantastic. It more than met our needs and we had an enjoyable stay. I would recommend Merlin to anyone who is looking for a relaxing week in the Highlands, first class. We will be rebooking, we enjoyed it so much.

A stunning area. Lovely walks and exploring. Great to see the river and we wish we'd taken a boat. If you like the outdoors, it's a perfect location.

The apartment was beautiful, nicely furnished and renovated, very comfortable and spacious.

Wonderful old building that has been beautifully renovated. Comfortable and spacious. All 6 members of our party loved this rental, including 2 children and 2 seniors. It's a little off the beaten path, on large estate with walking trails along water and woods.
