We had such a wonderful stay at the Crofthouse! Angus and his wife made us feel so welcome, and the house was very comfortable.
Angus and his wife were wonderful hosts. When we arrived at their beautiful house, we found everything sorted out for us and even food in the fridge! And apart from the house and the hosts, the area itself was absolutely stunning. An all round great experience!
Nous avons été accueillis avec nos trois enfants très chaleureusement, la maison chauffée et le frigo remplis. La maison est très agréable et bien équipée, correspondant parfaitement à la définition de "cosy". Dans ces conditions, nous avons passé une excellente semaine, malgré le temps très "écossais". Grâce à la proximité du bord de mer, nous avons pu compléter nos journées de visites par des sorties à marée basse dans un cadre magnifique. Merci encore à Graham et sa famille.
Angus and his wife Liz were an absolute delight. When we arrived (thanks to their detailed directions), there was fire burning in the master bedroom, as well as food in the fridge and cupboards! The croft house itself is cozy and perfectly situated to explore the shoreline.
