Just had one of our best weeks self catering holiday in the beautiful village of Lochcarron, complimented by the excellent accommodation provided by Glayva Cottage. The cottage is well equipped with everything you could ask for, homely, comfortable and with stunning views from the front of the cottage. Ideally located for visiting other areas including Skye and Plockton. The hosts, Carol and Neil were readily available if needed (which we didn't) and have a cottage to be proud of. Would definitely book again.
Beauttiful Lochcarron proved the perfect location. The cottage is above average and certainly provided rooms with a view!
We have been self-catering taking holidays on and around the west coast of Scotland and the islands for many years. Glayva Cottage is probably the best we have ever found, combining as it does high-quality accommodation with a fabulous location.
The cottage has been sympathetically modernised, is spacious, extremely well-equipped and provided us with the perfect base. The owners, Neil and Carol, are great communicators when booking and they were extremely helpful and sympathetic when we needed to postpone our holiday due to a medical issue. When you are in the cottage, they make it clear they are available to assist with any questions you may have, but they won't be paying you a visit unless you ask.
Lochcarron is a lovely, peaceful village and if you want to just chill out, there is ample seating along the loch side, and a pub, bistro and café, together with a very well-stocked Spar shop. If touring is your preference, the location again is perfect, with easy access to many lovely places, such as the Isle of Skye, Applecross, Plockton, Torridon and - a little further afield - the wonderful National Trust for Scotland gardens at Inverewe (NT England members get free entry). Much nearer, and on a much smaller scale, are the beautiful gardens at Attadale, directly across the loch from Lochcarron.
We will certainly be returning to Lochcarron (we have stayed there many times before), and Glayva Cottage will be always be our first-choice accommodation from now on.
Thank you so much. great to see book on transformation of cottage. loads of books and info of local area left buy owners. Very helpful couple. All the home was clean. plenty of space, everything we needed was there. We would love to go back.
