We have stayed in this area before but the specific location of Manish with its wonderful view down the loch makes this a very special place. We never tired of soaking in the panorama before us and I couldn't go to bed until I watched the sun go down every night."

Colin - 20 October

"Enjoyed comforts of the cottage after our daily exertions."


Samantha - 27 October

"I left early as the weather was bad and I was on my own. Snug bungalow. You can tell that there has been recent refurbishment to some of it but it does need updating in areas - foam on the sofas has gone. Labels on switches would be helpful. The bungalow does have a lovely position overlooking the loch and I was greeted each morning with a mixed flock of fieldfares. Grateful for the wifi."


Lynne - 29 October

"I cannot remember how many times we have been here - a dozen maybe. The kitchen is much nicer. A lovely week, already booked for next year."


Vinay - 29 Dec

"Thanks a lot. We enjoyed each day at the cottage. The house had everything we need. It was perfect, every bit of it."

"We had a wonderful stay in a lovely house, spacious, warm inviting. Thank you very much."


Vic & Hilary - October

"Delighted with location of Manish. Views beautiful, house well equipped and cosy. Have enjoyed staying at Manish very much, very cosy, warm and well equipped holiday accommodation and the best view we've ever had from a holiday cottage. Everything very clean too. One suggestion - brighter lighting in the sitting room as we all found it difficult to read and look at maps; but apart from that it's super. Thank you - hope to return one day"
