We were extremely impressed with Torgorm Cottage No. 3. A beautifully furnished and well equipped cottage in a quiet, peaceful location with fantastic views. The cottage was cleaned to a very high standard, spacious and made for a perfect stay. The enclosed garden was well presented and perfect for our small dog Molly to explore. I would thoroughly recommend the cottage for those looking for a relaxing and peaceful break and the location made it easy to venture out and explore the beautiful Highlands.
