Visitor comments

  • Loreen Elliott
    We were delighted by our second visit to this charming, bright and imaginative holiday home. It has been exquisitely designed to maximise the light and stunning views of sea, islands and mountains. The furnishings and finishes are of excellent quality and the uncluttered appearance is very soothing. It is very warm and well equipped- a real gem. Your host, we agree with other guests, is both discrete but helpful. Perfect.
  • JB
    We found Taigh Glas a wonderful place to spend a holiday and can thoroughly recommend it. The cottage is very comfortable, warm and equipped with quality materials.The views to the Torridon mountains and Skye are magical.
  • Tommy & Roberta
    Beautiful holiday cottage - just the place if you want to get away from everything. Breath taking view's no matter the weather, stunning sunset, different fantastic views from every window. We stayed for a week last year and didn't want to come home.
  • GN
    Beautiful, peaceful and modern barn conversion, set in an area of absolutely astounding natural beauty. Walks, attractions and beaches all within easy reach, as well as the amenities in Gairloch. Stunning views from the lounge and patio area, over the Torridon hills and across to Skye. Elizabeth has done an excellent job in renovating the property, which is clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a wonderful stay. 5 Star.
  • Sheila and Larry
    A wonderful cottage. What views! Beautifully appointed and so welcoming. Liz a perfect hostess - welcoming and helpful but left us to our own devices. This is a real gem and an ideal spot for exploring the area. We will be back !
  • Margaret
    Perfect place for couples or just one. Loved the underfloor heating; toasty warm to come home to after a wet and windy coastal (or mountain) walk. I still dream about the 180' view from the living area through those marvellous walls of glass. Light, contemporary, but comfy decor. Everything you need, all modern appliances, and a helpful but invisible nearby hostess if you do manage to think of something extra!
  • janet harper
    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Taigh Glas, a wonderfully renovated cottage which is perfect for couples. We didn't want for anything, the views were fantastic and just lovely to sit and watch the sea and the mountains without moving as the glazed sitting area permitted views of both. Lovely and warm and didn't need to light the woodburner once. Well situated for exploring all around Wester Ross.
  • Catherine Atkinson
    A wonderful cottage, very modern, beautifully presented with absolutely everything you need. Fabulous views and a perfect setting. Elizabeth was a great host; helpful but allowed us to enjoy our holiday in peace. We were lucky enough to be able to extend our stay and would return in a flash.
  • Eamonn
    Great cottage, a credit to it's owner, exactly as described and very well presented. A good base for exploring the area or simply watching the scenery change with the weather outside from the warm and cosy interior.
  • SA
    A truly fantastic place. Not completely isolated but certainly feels like it. Superb views of the mountains and sea. You can see the waves rolling in; take a pair of binoculars with you. Warm and very comfortable. Nicely designed throughout, modern and yet cosy. Everything you need is there. The owner is very friendly and extremely helpful. We loved our stay there and would love to go back again.
