That cottage ? Wow!! The cottage was immaculate and in a great location, it virtually has its own private beach. The man who owns that cottage knows what he is doing as it has everything that you might need. Martin, Bedford October 2016

5 star reviewWe had a great time going round all the local attractions and playing on the beaches. The house was an excellent base for thisWith a beach right on outside the front door, we can't agree more! Many thanks for your comments!
5 star reviewSangobeag is an excellent holiday let, this year was our fifth visit and, hopefully, not the last (age permitting!). Of all the Discover Scotland properties, Sangobeag must be the best that we've stayed in. Very minor downside this year - the grass didn't appear to have been cut for months. I hope that the caretaker won't mind - I borrowed the garden shears from the utility room to cut the grass up to the outbuilding (otherwise I would have got soaking wet shoes!) where the grass was some 6-9" high. I also sheared down the footpath to the pedestrian gate, almost opposite no. 83 Sangobeag.Many thanks for your review. We will pass your comments on to the owner for attention.
5 star reviewThe location, above a sandy beach, was second to none. Scarcely possible to think of anything that wasn't providedWe never like to leave so excellent to hear that you had a great stay too. The owners will be very pleased to see your lovely review.
