Lovely place with magnificent view
Convenient cottage at fantastic location. Great garden and splendid view. Interior is traditional and not modernized. Lot of opportunities for walking in different environments (coast line, forest, mountains). Nice to have a washing machine (no dish washer). Bath room also outdated but okay. One toilet in the bath room less convenient for larger groups.
Wonderful retreat with fabulous views!
Beautifully proportioned traditional stone house! All the rooms have views directly onto the sea, Skye and mountains. Well equipped kitchen, easy to work in. Plenty of cheap hot water, and lots of soft comfortable furnishing for relaxing evenings by either of the two wood-burning stoves.
Large, well kept garden full of interesting plants with benches facing the sea. Great privacy if you ignore the pine martens, the seals and the occasional pair of porpoises!
Within short ride of decent shopping, restaurants and local attractions.
Will definitely try to come back, and recommend to friends.
Lovely location but...
The view of the loch is stunning and the house does have decent wifi speed but frequently refused to work with iPad and it didn't work with Kindles at all). The standard of equipment is not what we expected at this price point, nor would we normally expect to provide linens and towels (the owner did provide bedlinens in the end as ours did not fit the bed). The downstairs bathroom/toilet was inconvenient and the plumbing needs an overhaul. There is a damp feel to the property even during the heatwave we experienced. There are also no provisions for enjoying the garden (which while pleasant is behind the property and does not enjoy the view), no proper garden chairs or table and no BBQ.
Lovely property in beautiful location.
A fantastic place for two weeks of peace and tranquillity.
Beautiful cottage with seaview
We stayed a week in this beautiful, cosy and very comfortable cottage and from the first day on we felt very much at home and enjoyed our stay very much. The view on the sea, directly from the house is every day different and you could never get enough of it! Coming home after a day outside, sometimes a little wet...., was always so welcoming.
The house is a real "hiddenway place", so quiet, so privat with its own garden all around and in the meantime so perfekt located for so many trips around: Balmacara gardens, Glenelg and the little ferry to Skye, Isle of Skye with the beautiful hiking you can do in the Cuillins and so much else to see, Applecross with the breathtaken Pass (be careful)...
and so on!
The house was spotless clean and has all you need for a lovely vacation and we sincerely hope to come back once!
Thank you so much Anna, also for the good communication!!
The owner's description emphasised the views from their cottage, but the wonderful panorama that all the rooms have (except bathroom and kitchen) across Lochalsh is wonderful.
The addition of seal and otter spotting while admiring the view is a bonus.
Blythswood is secluded, being at the end of a short forestry track (easily traversed by any car), with only one other cottage on the track. The cottage lies on a hillside, with the shoreside hamlet of Glaik below, on the shoreside, and Lochalsh woodland (an NTS walk ) behind.
The Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh road runs further up the hill with occasional glimpses of vehicles possible ( I suspect once the leaves are on the trees this is not the case).
The benefit of being near to the road is that it is only a few minute drive to Kyle where there is a well stocked small supermarket, and a few restaurants, even closer is the Spar at Reraig, also well stocked.
The cottage is a wonderful mix of a traditional cottage with modern convenience, for example the small kitchen has an original Belfast sink and built in cupboards, but coffee maker, microwave and modern electric cooker and fridge freezer.
The wifi was great and surprisingly speedy given the rural location (no problem streaming movies).
There is only one bathroom, but it is spacious with lots of space for multiple toilet bags and a modern electric shower and towel rails in addition to original sink and bath.
There are two solid fuel stoves and ample electric heaters to keep the cottage cosy.
The cottage is clearly well used by the owners with everything you need for a comfortable stay, but don't expect a modern 'show home'.
We have a dog and the large enclosed garden and woodland walks on our doorstep were great, with a small stoney beach also very near.
The master bed room was very spacious with the other double and single bedrooms smaller, all with comfy modern beds and great views.
It is a fairly lengthy drive from Central Scotland but as it passes through the most spectacular scenery in the UK who's complaining?!
We look forward to returning.
