    Muchrachd reviews
    We were last at Muchrachd 7 years ago - it hasn't been spoiled, and the glen is still peaceful and beautiful and natural. Loved the new floor coverings, the impressive new kitchen and the large freezer, the new pillows are nice, and the Esse stove is a wonderful asset. Muchrachd invites you to feel at home and relax and it was good to see the place had been given needed repairs and maintenance. Wake up to red deer each morning, watch out for belligerent mum's amongst the suckler cows (!), peace and quiet is guaranteed, wonderful walking all around. Muchrachd's large kitchen/living space is so attractive and relaxing. We even got wonderful weather. The new owners of the shop in Cannich village keep it well-stocked and Beauly is an attractive afternoon out; glen Affric is minutes away for a change of glen, as is glen Strathfarrer over the other side. We had a gorgeous time, and the dogs loved it too. Loads of space - inside and out - beauty, peace and quiet guaranteed. Wild and remote, basic, but comfortable - we love it. No mobile signal, no wi-fi, no tv, wonderful!
    Mrs Bartlam - April 2016
    We have visited Muchrachd twice - once with small children - when the river setting, deer and other wildlife, cosy range-heated kitchen and space were all huge assets. This time it was our base for the Scottish 6 days orienteering and with teenagers it worked equally well. Comfortable, roomy and in the most beautiful location. No wifi so thank goodness no work emails (although there is a hotspot in Cannich if you are desperate - our eldest cycled the 5 miles there and back to download something!). The kitchen was the envy of orienteers who dropped by for a cup of tea - lovely and warm so ideal for drying shoes that have scrambled through the neighbouring glens and braes or just chilling after visiting the attractions of Inverness and beyond. Superb. Retains its mythic place in our family as the perfect Highland destination. We look forward to returning!
    Ms Khursheed - August 2015
    If you like to spend some really peacefull und relaxing days and if you can be good company to yourself this is the perfect place. We appreciated the remote area and the glens around very much. The house itself is fully equipped, maybe a bit oldfashoined, but this is what makes its charme. It is very close to nature with all the cows and stags around. Glen Affric is a place one should really go to.
    Mrs Rauch - July 2015
    This house was booked for our honeymoon as my husband had stayed here every year for 15 years when he was younger. We arrived at Muchrachd on the friday and the caretaker was nowhere to be found. We were finally let in at 830pm as he claims he "hadn't been told we were coming". The house was in a dusty state and the bathrooms were not clean when we arrived as the caretaker hadnt had the cleaners in. The house itself is beautiful and is in a lovely location. There is a small tv to watch dvds on which was nice for the younger member of our family and the bedrooms were very comfortable. Id advice taking what id describe as a duvet as there were only blankets there. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you'd need for a full self catering holiday. The board games and books were a nice touch. The surroundings are spectacular, loads of deers and cows around. There was new mouse droppings twice in the week while we were there but is to slightly be expected in a house of this age and location. The water was brown/green most days as it comes straight from the mountains and is filtered which may not be to everyones likeing. In all a good value holiday home but little things let it down.
    Owners Response: "Response from Cottages & Castles: Thank you for your review and we are glad you and your family enjoyed your holiday overall."
    Mrs Dunkley - May 2015
    Amazing site surrounded by vast hills, babbling river, and deer paid a visit. The glen is very beautiful and quiet, and traveling all the way to the end and the last loch is a must. The cottage is beautiful and basic. No washing machine, and it's blankets not quilts, so our quilt covers were not much use. There is a TV screen so you could bring DVDs. There is no working CD player. No phone signal but there is a landline for emergencies. Make sure you phone beforehand, we didn't think we needed to and had a scary hour when we thought we were not going to get in. Midge spray is a MUST! Places all round to visit. Lovely food in The Tomich Hotel in Glen Tomich. Small but useful shop in Cannich. We will definitely visit this cottage again.

    Excellent stay, very enjoyable
    Rev. Tanner - June 2014
    This cottage exceeded all our expectations and we had a really wonderful holiday here. As soon as we arrived, there were herds of deer right beside the property. The cottage looks even better than the pictures shown, and we ran inside to explore. It is deceptively large - despite having about 8 people there most days, we never felt on top of each other. We spent most of our time together in the kitchen/living area which was very warm and cosy thanks to the stove. Also, everything you could possibly need is provided for: board games, cards, endless blankets, great pots and pans etc. The cottage itself felt isolated (in a very pleasant way), and the surroundings were absolutely beautiful with a river right outside, huge hills and forest all around. We loved waking up there. The village Cannich is just a 4 mile trip - a really nice walk - and has places to eat and drink and a little shop which came in handy. Also, there are plenty of nearby tourist attractions, and great hikes and trails. It really was perfect, especially for the price. It was so above and beyond what we expected - a massive thanks to the owners!
    Miss Miles - May 2014
    Loved the location. Nice new kitchen, well stocked. Beds were not comfy though and duvets would have been nicer. Unfortunately there was an abundance of feather cushions and pillows which I'm allergic too. The bedroom downstairs smelled a bit damp but since we didn't use it it wasn't a problem. All said we loved it and were glad there was no TV signal or wifi.
    Mrs Todd - May 2014
    This cottage was just right. A great, quiet, warm place to come back to after a day out on the hills or in the glens. But also cosy and characterful with great views for those days when the weather closes in. Smaller children could have hours of fun messing about by the river and spotting the deer. Convienient for the lovely Glen Affric. We'll definitely come back.
    Mrs Macdonald - April 2014
    The setting of Muchrachd is just beautiful. It is very rural and the only neighbours are wildlife. We had a lovely time just exploring the countryside. The cottage is fine, the kitchen very well equipped. The lounge and the bedrooms are nice and cosy. The only improvement needed ,in my opinion, would be the bathrooms. They are quite dated and a proper shower would be a good investment. However, we did manage. All in all, we had a fabulous holiday and would definitely return.
    Mrs Garrido - April 2013
    A traditional cottage set in a quiet glenn, fantastic setting, very comfortable & cosy. Deer roam freely up to to door step & wildlife is in abundance, a truely magical place & is a credit to the owners & nothing is to much trouble for the caretakers. Thank you very much.
