A perfect house to relax in & to have a great holiday. We have had great weather all week with good walks. Good food at the Potting Shed in Applecross & also at the Torridon Inn. Both very reasonable. Seen lots of wildlife near the house including deer, otter, golden eagle & three wild black goats. Waterfall at the back of the house is nice to walk round. Already planning to return. Many thanks.

Lovely house at a lovely place! Everyday you wake up with a beautiful view. We loved it here.

Fabulous property in a stunning location. So peaceful; here's hoping the mobile reception stays away!! Climbed Beinn Alligin over the horns on a stunning day and Beinn Eighe in mixed conditions. Many thanks. A lovely place & glorious scenery

Mixed weather of sunshine & showers. We saw the loch in many states from millpond calm to inky black waves. What a beautiful place. One of our party fell at Torridon and had to go to Skye as wrist broken. Fabulous attention from medical teams at Torridon and the hospital. Thank you.

What a truly beautiful place - we so much enjoyed the peace & ever-changing views and vistas. Thank you so much.

Great time, lots of rain! Three children so worred when booked about lack of broadband (NB: now installed) and TV reception. But NO ONE has missed it. Children (and adults) do not want to leave. So much to do, so little time. What beauty. Thank goodness for digital cameras. We all want to come back. PS can someone kill the midges please. (NB Scotland wouldn't be the same without the midges!!)

We have had a great time at Brachen House. We saw Pine Martens every night (2). They like jam, peanut butter, coco rocks and bread. We saw a seal, wild mountain goats and a red stag. We also saw small green toads. We climbed up the hill at the back of the house and could not find the pathway back so we followed the stream down (so be careful!). We hope to come back. Holland Brady - age 9.
PS. The Pine Martens come between 9.30 and 10.30. But they did come one time at 8.30. They come looking for food at the sunroom window.

A lovely week, weather has been kind. Lots of wildlife and the biggest pair of pollocks we've ever seen! Bumper crop of midgies as well! Thank you.

We have really enjoyed our week at this special place! Very nice and comfortable house. Weather was perfect. We've made nice walks and had a very good lunch at the Applecross Inn. Thank you.

Many thanks for Mrs & Mr Davies. We felt warmly welcome in your cottage. We loved the silence and loneliness. The weather was fine for a lot of tours. We are so sad to have to leave today!

We've had such a relaxing week, gazing out over the bay, spotting wildlife and lapping up the view. The house has been perfect - plenty of room for 6 adults and two dogs, and we've made full use of all the living spaces. The weather has been kind and allowed us to bag four munros! Perfect!

Lovely 2 weeks - home from home. Beautiful scenery, amazing wildlife.

All has been said. Its is not possible to add a new comment. We loved it very much! Pine Marten appeared each evening (9.30-11pm)

Perfect hourse, perfect outlook. Weather - all season, sun, rain and snow on the high tops.Lovely! And Pine Martens visiting every day.

Wow! What a fantastic place. We have really enjoyed every minute here. Thank you so much for sharing the place with us. Weather was showery and windy which I suppose gave us a great excuse for pottering outside and then dashing back for yet another cuppa in the sun lounge! Pine martens were great to see. We will be back - promise!

Special place, special cottage with one of the best views anywhere - had a brilliant week. We will be back!

Fab week. Beautiful scenery and visits from Marty the pine marten, who we fed on jam & peanut butter. Can't thank our daughter & son in law enough for bringing us to this very special place.

Had a fabulous week. Saw the pine marten four times. Had a lovely walk on the beach at Applecross in glorious sunshine on Saturday and by the end of the week we had snow! All fantastic. Thanks.

Thanks for these special days here is Diabaig. We love this remote place surrounded by fabulous nature. The sunny Monday felt like a day in the spring. We will be back one day....

We needed a relaxing break and we got it!! Lovely place, walks and wonderful setting. Plenty to see, weather good, sunny but cool most of week. Thank you.

Another great break. Thanks for putting in the new bridge, very much appreciated.

A great winter break in glorious surroundings. Rained a lot but still got out - dogs loved it here.

What to say after a week in a very comfortable house. Beautiful scenery several encounters with a stag crossing the road. The most magnificent bad weather (even to Dutch standards) and sugar coated munros. Well just this: Scotland is Grand!

Absolutely fantastic time. Cottage is exceptional, as is Diabaig. Lovely neighbours as well, human and wildlife. Thanks Russ & Chris

Great Gaff. After 15 years on our annual lads week, best yet. Location, location, location. some superb hill walks, combined with local adventures. Layout very sociable, star gazing at night - awesome. Hopefully we will be back one day. Fantastic literature and folders. Best info came across at self catering.

A home from home! The log burner has been put to use with lovely fires every night! Comfy beds and lovely hot power showers. Scenery and wildlife fantastic. Would recommend Torridon sea tours and the many walks - Loch Clair, Coulin estate, mountain trail Beinn Eighe, and if your up for more driving on these wonderful roads, give Applecross cattle road a try. All in all a fab week, the separate living areas worked really well. We all really enjoyed our stay.

The best equipped house we have ever stayed in. Fabulous views and great neighbours.

What a stunning location and a lovely house. This has been a wonderful 70th birthday present for Tony and we had had an amazing holiday. Thank you so much.

Once again a wonderful holiday. No fish but great weather. Thank you.

We really enjoyed the visit and the cottage. The scenery was beautiful and we were so lucky with the weather. We are looking forward for our next visit.

A truly unique location, memories of which will stay with us for many years. Very appreciative of nightly entertainment from local resident wildlife!! Glad we bought extra jam. Molly enjoyed her first visit to Scotland, have never seen her so tired from walking. Thank you. We look forward to our next visit.

24 April 2010, Jim and Helen Stitt, Spey & Jura, Abingdon, Oxfordshire
We can only echo what has already been said about house, location etc. Weather mixed but we have been out walking every day. Lucky enough to see both pine martens but no other significant wildlife (unless you count the Eider Duck!)

10 April 2010, Dale Family, Glasgow
Very comfortable house. Weather beautiful Sunday and when leaving. Great walks!

3 April 2010, Tony and Penny Aspey, Bracken & Beth, Whitby, North Yorks
Fabulous house, so very comfortable and homely. Had at least 3 seasons weather this week, rain, hail, sleet, heavy snow, wind blizzards and lovely sun. Road very "interesting" and challenging at times. Wildlife good but not an otter in sight. Pine martens come out to feed most nights and are even curious and climb on the windowsills to look at us.

What a super place to stay! Lost for words really. Would love to come back again. Thank you
