Lovely little break.
Brought my mum here for a long weekend. Got a little lost at first, not helped by the woman from the school house sending us in completely the wrong direction. Basically you drive past the closed down tea rooms, pass the village hall on your right then a school on right and keep on that narrow road for about a quarter of a mile. Cottage on left. When we got there the cottage was freezing and even with the fire lit it took till late in the night to get warm because the storage heaters take time to build up heat. I thought it was going to be too cold for mum but luckily she'd fetched her hot water bottle! During the night however, it warned up, plus the weather, although rainy turned milder and the cottage was more than warm enough after that. The beds are comfortable. The cottage is fairly well equipped. It's a lovely area with lots of birds to watch and there were deer in the garden when we arrived. Lots of walks from the cottage door once we'd encouraged the dog from the fireside. Especially the walk to the reservoir and dam, left of the cottage. The only drawback is the mirrors, me and my mum are short and all the mirrors were too high! It would be good to have a wall mirror near a window then we could see to get our faces on.

The Sheiling
Comfortable cottage in superb location. Perfect for complete relaxation with stunning surroundings and plentiful varieties of wildlife. Loads of local walks through forests and along lochs, beside rivers and great local villages. Highly recommend this cottage.

Peace and Quiet !!!
Beautiful little Cottage, if you are looking for absolute peace and quiet then this is the cottage to book. We loved our stay the weather wasn't kind to us but it was still a lovely relaxing holiday. The garden was stunning, we loved that you have so much choice of where to sit in the garden. We enjoyed watching the wildlife especially the Pine martens that entertained us in the evenings Lovely !!!!

Characterful cottage in beautiful surroundings
This cottage is in a beautiful location with fabulous walks from the door.It is very well equipped if a little old fashioned but this matches the character of the cottage.The gardens are wonderful.Not over cultivated but full of wildlife.

The cottage was very well equipped in all aspects. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed.
