Everything was perfect, from walking in to the well presented apartment to the beautiful location. The accommodation was comfortable and very well equipped for the self catering family. There was stunning wildlife right on our doorstep too, we were visited by a deer on the lawn! We had a fabulous time at Merlin and would not hesitate to book again for next year.
Mrs Lunn

We loved the fact that the apartment was close to a loch with nothing much nearby. We had Deer coming down to the green behind the apartment every evening. There was plenty of other wildlife around the area and the whole location was very peaceful with no noises other than animals.
Mr Woollard

Merlin was very well appointed with excellent, clean and newish furniture. The linen was clean and crisp.
Mr Coe

Merlin is an absolute perfect place to stay if you want to get away from the city. The apartment was excellent, the grounds around the apartments are perfect for walking, cycling and any other activities that you want to do. It is peaceful, beautiful and overall an absolute perfect place to stay.
Mrs Broadley

We had a wonderful time! The accommodations were comfortable and perfect for our family. The location could not have been better. We would recommend it to friends and hope to return ourselves.
