Lovely apartment, great views. Brian was a good host. Pretty area of the Black Isle. Went to Culbokie Inn every night, just a few miles down the road. Great food and very friendly locals, ended up playing a game of Patanque with them.

Excellent accommodation for a couple, compact and comfortable. Had everything to enjoy a relaxed holiday, in a quiet location but central to all areas of the Highlands. The owner was on hand when we arrived and made us welcome and showed us through the apartment. Thoroughly recommend it.
Harold, Leongatha, Australia : 6th July, 2015

Location views and clean accomodation with luxury features bring joy in your trip. Well I must say there is nothing to be improved as it is beautiful cosy and if I say it is perfection in term living standards. I have travelled so many places in UK and I stayed in Hotels, apartment, cottages, and barns but nothing was like that and I have no hesitation to give 5 stars standards quality and polite behavour of Mr. Brian and Sheena from Gael Homes for arranging everything and made everything possible.
Adnan, London : 30th March, 2015

Everything was wonderful. Couldn't fault the apartment. It is in a good location. Easy to get on to main road. Lovely and quiet.
Karen, Belford : 10th December, 2014

The apartment is perfect the owners have thought of every little detail it is very clean and the view is magnificent - it is a place that you look forwatd to coming back yo each day. Brian the owner is there to help with any problem and he is keen that the stay is a good one. The countryside around is stunning and there are many places to visit handy Spean bridge Eilean castle. Loch Ness and Inverness but if you only experienced the surrounding area it would be enough.
Angela, Norfolk : 9th September, 2014
