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

Sangobeag Reviews

5 star review

The cottage is absolutely lovely. 3 years in a row now we have stayed there. It's warm and cosy and has the best views out to sea possible with 2 min access to a lovely beach. We as a family of 5 cannot fault this place in any way and is plenty big enough for us all, we are looking forward to re-visiting already :-)

We had the most amazing June week staying in this lovely house. Home from home with the added bonus of the peaceful surroundings, stunning view and almost private beach. Lots of good walks, birds, wildlife (even spotted an otter on the sandy beach from the sunroom window), nice eating places and interesting days out - the trip out to Cape Wrath lighthouse is a must. Only had one shower of rain all week and no midges! Can't wait to go back.

See other comment. Also there are a lot of chipped mugs, plates and bowls which should be thrown out and replaced. Otherwise a wonderful house with superb views. Lovely big towels and well equipped. Very quiet. Lots of walking in area and loads of birds. Really good bird book left out which helped us identify some we didn't know. Apart from the smell of smoke and the chips we would recommend to everyone.
