We came to Diabaig 40 years ago on our honeymoon and returned with our 2 grown up sons. A lovely house with stunning views & the road & village have hardly changed. Had a wonderful time in this comfortable house despite the weather. Thank you so much.

Had a great time in a wonderful cottage. We used the walking book by Paul & Helen Webster call “Wester Ross & Lochalsh” which was marvellous! A magical place.

30 March – 6 April 2013, Becks family & friends, York
Lovely place, had a great time again. Thank you.

16-23 March 2013, David & Pauline Smith, Dunstable
Our city polluted lungs have been refreshed by crisp, clean loch-side air. Tired eyes revived by the awe-inspiring sight of snow capped mountains and the deepest blue sea. Apparently a budget was announced and England won a world cup qualifier while we were away. We could not have cared less. Do we want to go home? Like the goats on the islands in the bay, we’d be happy to stay and simply enjoy the views. Thank you Tigh Brachen. Until next time..

2-5 March 2013, Willie Munro, Aberdeen
Not long enough here to finish the jigsaw as weather perfect for walking. Fantastic location for a holiday

16 February 2013, Hobbs family & Eve the dog, Leeds
Boy did we enjoy ourselves! One of the best cottages we have used. All you need to do is just look out the window – everything else is a bonus. Thanks.

We have had a lovely week. Everything perfect, location, house, wildlife & weather. Our favourite walk is up the wood to your bridge. Well done. Many thanks to Marianne for her attentiveness.

One of the most beautiful places we’ve ever stayed. Otters, eagles, goats, starfish, dogfish etc. Brilliant

Another week in Diabaig has flown by. We’ve had all sort of weather this week, which just makes the scenery every more stunning.

20-27 October 2012, Louise & Mike Pilditch, Worcs
We hit the jackpot for kayaking weather, and have given Loch Torridon a good airing. Very much enjoyed the porpoise synchronized swimming display & the wriggly otter performances. Yesterday we had a fantastic walk up to Coire mhic Fhearchair, glowing autumnal colours and bellowing stags. Today winter has made a dramatic descent over the mountains. We have very much enjoyed enjoyed our week in this lovely, comfortable house. Many thanks to all concerned.

29 Sept – 6 October 2012, Jonathan & Sharon Ainley & Zach the dog, North Yorkshire
A lovely week in this gorgeous setting. Very difficult to leave. Very cosy and comfortable cottage. Have spent most of our time in the cottage in the sun room with binoculars. Hit and miss weather wise but this didn’t spoil a thing. Thoroughly enjoyed our hols. Thanks.

8-28 September, 2012, Ann & Jean-Pierre Pasquier, Switzerland
We have spent a lovely holiday in this very comfortable house – lots of family and friends visited – they loved the place. Mixed weather but enough sun to be able to do longer walks. Fishing in the loch above the house caught 2 large trout. We were very taken with the community centre in Torridon, the arts & crafts exhibition and the warm welcome of everyone we met.

18 – 25 August 2012, The MacDonald family, Coddenham, Suffolk
Very nice house, great location, we’ve even got used to the hair raising drive to Diabaig! Bagged our first munro, which was brilliant!

21 July – 4 August 2012, The Andrews family & Archie the dog, Barnsley, Yorkshire
A truly fantastic fortnight here at Tigh Brachen – the weather was a mixture of sun, cloud and rain – sometimes all at once. We had some nice warm sunny days but whatever the weather we really enjoyed every single minute – brought a boat with us and managed to catch lots of fish from it – especially mackerel. Saw loads of wildlife (most for the first time) and went of some great walks. Will be back next year because the house makes everything perfect!.

14-21 July 2012, The Gavin family, Dartmoor, Devon
Fantastic week in a beautiful setting. Tigh Brachen is a lovely, comfortable base to relax in. Thank you very much. Could just stay watching the sea with binoculars for ever!

7 – 14 July 2012, The Kelly family, Pateley Bridge, Yorkshire
Great week in a superb spot. Could sit for hours just admiring the view from the sunroom. Had super walks too!

23 – 30 June 2012, Iona & Kevin Hutin & friends, Newcastle

All enjoyed our stay with good weather and beautiful surroundings. Every comfort as always in Tigh Brachen

12 – 19 May 2012, Brian & Lisa Logan, Portsmouth
We have thoroughly enjoyed our week here in a lovely cottage in an amazing location. A changeable weather system all week meant we weren’t always able to venture too far, but suffice to say Grace, our 18 month old daughter was introduced to hill walking in style!

5 – 12 May 2012, Flemming family, Durham
A superb location and a really well designed and equipped cottage. We have had a fantastic holiday and are leaving the cottage very relaxed.
