Norrie and Anna made our three night stay very homely and memorable. Norrie provided a spectacular breakfast spread each morning, with many home-made goodies and was extremely generous with his time and shared a lot of local knowledge with us. The roaring fire was particularly welcome given how cold and damp it was last February. The large hillside garden was...

Thank you for your kind review and we are very sorry if you were unable to sleep well. I wonder if there was something we could have done to make your nights more comfortable? Always a good idea to ask and then we have a chance of seeing if we can put things right. With best wishes.

We spent 4 days at Ard Daraich in late June 2015. A little rest and rejuvenation was needed before we started touring the Highlands. We got a bit lost on finding the location but after asking some of the most friendly local people we were pointed in the right direction and found Ard Daraich. A nice welcome by Emmanuel who...

We've stayed in the self catering cottage for two weeks, what a beautifull and relaxing place that is. Two weeks is to short here and time flies but only the peninsula deserves more time to be spend there so much wildlife and flowers en the most amzing skies.

We stayed at Ard Daraich last month during our trip to the Highlands and we couldn't have asked for a better B and B. The house and surrounding garden are beautiful and such care has been taken to make it an inviting home for guests (note log fires each evening and fresh bluebells in the bedroom). Anna and Norrie are...

Just one B&B night stay here but very enjoyable. Unexpected trip on a ferry to get there ..that was fun! Great peaceful location. We were greeted with a cup of tea and a wood burning fire in the sitting room. Quaintly comfortable bedroom with bathroom next to it. (toiletries supplied) We took a walk around the garden which was fabulous...

We have just returned from our two week honeymoon at Ard Daraich Cottage and couldn't have chosen anywhere better. The cottage is superb - tastefully decorated with beautiful finishing touches of Anna's artwork, an eclectic library and beachcombed items. The owners have thought of everything to make the day-to-day as easy as possible so there is more time to spend...

Thank you for your kind review. We are sorry if you missed a shower but with a private water supply we are unable to provide reliable high pressure to make this part of our selfcatering. As for broadband, Ardgour is blighted by a slow service and so we are unable to offer better coverage. There is a desk for guests...

Amazing cottage, gardens, area and owners. Very friendly owners of the cottage who go out of their way to help in any way. Very environmentally friendly place to stay. Dog friendly and so relaxing. Gardens are gorgeous and seeing the birds right outside the window on the feeder was lovely. It's close to the beach where we went every day...

It's a bit late but we had the most marvelous time at Ard Daraich. We have just opened Norrie's wonderful marmalade which reminded me that we had not 'reviewed' our trip (we also bought his Honey which did last long enough in our household!). The house was simply lovely (wish it were mine!) in an area of outstanding natural beauty...

It's been a year since I stayed here and now I'm craving a repeat of my Highlands getaway.

“My general tips for the cottage would be to pack plenty of appropriate clothing for the variety of weather and plenty of provisions for self catering as the local shops and restaurants are fairly limited (which is part of the charm of the area and a good thing!)”
