    Mungasdale House reviews
    We were thoroughly impressed with the house as we arrived. It was clean, tidy and had everything we could possibly need for our stay. We had not been aware the house offered Wifi, and when we noticed we had no mobile reception we thought we were going to be truly cut off the world. Then one of us found the Wifi info amongst the stack of local information! It would be good if the Wifi folder was kept close to the guestbook and general welcome info instead of among the stack of local attractions. Also, the password has a small mistake in it. The surroundings were absolutely stunning. The views from the cottage itself, the many deer that roamed around in the evening hours, there were many nature trails and viewpoints to visit within a short driving distance. Ullapool was not far and from there we did a walk to the Rhue lighthouse which I recommend. It's not too strenuous and the views were breathtaking! The two other (minor) things that stopped me from giving a 5 star review were these: the wood for the fire place was not very good. There was kindling, and there were massive logs, but nothing in between to build the fire good and hot with. Maybe it's my lack of pyrotechnical skills, but I gave up after a while. The big chunks were massive and damp so they simply weren't catching. The other thing was that we would have liked to use the AGA, but found no directions for its use anywhere. We managed just fine with the mini hob, but it would have been fun to use the AGA. We felt very much at home in the cottage; it was nicely furnished, cozy and wonderfully clean. If I'm ever going to be staying up north again in that area, I would definitely return to Mungasdale House if possible.

    Love staying here. Comfy and warm. Not fancy but has everything you need. Great for a group including children.
    Mr Pope - October 2017
    A great location 200m from a very quiet beach. Fantastic loch fishing in easy walking distance. Really helpful, friendly & welcoming caretaker, estate manager, and assistant(Megan). It is a true joy to have no broadband, the teenagers actually talk to each other! Great kayaking and wonderful beach and hill walks. Thank you!
    Mr Forsyth - August 2016
    My family and I greatly enjoyed our week on the West Coast of Scotland. We had fantastic weather all week so that transformed our stay. We had our own private beach where the children made sand castles and swam. Our dog had the greatest holiday of its life running free in the countryside. The house was large and relatively old. It had great amenities with lots of accommodation and a very full kitchen including a fully functioning Aga. The bathrooms all worked and there was plenty of hot water and good plumbing. We had a log fire every night which was very cosy. The television and phone were not great but we played board games, cards and did a lot of reading and actual talking to each other. The local post offices/grocery stores had ample food including deli items. The smoked food was fabulous. The local hotel had wi-fi although I didn't miss it. My family did a lot of walking in the hills/mountains and swam in the mountain loughs. The midges only seemed to come out in the late evening and our spray worked well.
    Mr Keenan - June 2016
    We could not fault the house, fabulous location, everything in the house was Spotless, well equipped kitchen, very comfy beds, masses of dry logs, all in all perfection. If you can drag yourselves away a visit to the seafood shack in Ullapool well worth a visit for lunch.
    Mrs Forbes-cable - May 2016
    We found the house to be very clean and with plenty comfortable seating in the sitting room, and a good sized dining room. The kitchen was well equipped, though it would be helpful if there were instructions for the hot plates on the cooker. We are not all up to using the latest models. We did have trouble understanding the heating, but it was very efficient once we discovered how to control it! A friendly family house which we could certainly recommend. Plenty to do in the area, from mountains to beaches. Places to visit include Inverewe Gardens, the Arctic Convoy exhibition at Cove, Corrieshalloch Gorge.
    Mrs Dunn - May 2016
    A good house if you're not expecting perfection. A few broken items in cupboards. Central heating system not very reliable and the cooker hob is not easy to understand. But on the whole a lovely big comfy house that you can use as a base for fabulous walks in the surrounding area. We've stayed there on 3 occasions and loved it but there are always a few problems to contend with!
    Mrs Henderson - May 2016
    A good sized, comfortable house in lovely location. Beds comfy and clean. No towels provided, which can be missed when reading the description! Well equipped kitchen, but we were short of washing up liquid, tablets, cloths etc. the instructions are not easily found and the electric hob was very difficult to figure out. Microwave not working.
    Mrs Henderson - May 2015
    Found the house to be comfortable and Mrs Irvine helpful
    Mrs Davison - April 2014
    We had a fabulous week at MUNGASDALE house. Its been recently updated and is very well equipped, even has a wine fridge! Glorious views and an almost private beach for fab sunsets and sunbathing (sometimes). Loved the formal dining room and the comfy bedrooms. Helpful caretakers. This is the place for get-away hols, not being in the thick of it all. Bring everything you need and then pretend you are stranded there!
    Mrs Whitehead - May 2013
    well equipped, comfortable cottage.Caretakers extremely helpful and attentive. Great layout and space, fantastic base for mountaineering and all outdoor activities.
    Mrs Bonham - March 2013
    Old worldie comfortable house in great position within short walk to sandy beach. Other walks and sandy beaches nearby.
    Mr Henderson - October 2012
    Absolutely perfect accommodation. Everything we needed was there and the boot/kit/cloackroom was essential. I can only think of one improvement; larger pots and pans. We were eight blokes hungry every evening after long treks and could have done with two large cooking pots/pans, but we managed nonetheless.
    Mr Vyas - April 2012
    We liked the feel of the place and the location. The nearby beach was lovely. The decor felt right, although was slightly on the worn side. On the minus side, some rooms could do with a lick of paint, the bath in the bathroom at the top of the stairs was decorative since the enamel was flaking off. Many of the kitchen utensils needed replacing. The non stick had worn off many of the pans which were not useable. Please get a new set!
    Mr Wilson - April 2012
    Mungasdale is a very pleasant but an old fashioned house with large rooms.It was quite clean. It is warm with good central heating.It could perhaps do with a little more investment to improve one of the bathrooms which has some corroded pipework and to replace the rather worn out cooking pans and serving dishes in the kitchen. Apart from some details that were pinned on a notice board there was very little information about the house and the places of interest in the surrounding area.During an emergency it was necessary for us to ring the caretaker to locate a doctor.A visitor's book might be a help to the owner to rectify minor deficiencies.We enjoyed our stay and have no major complaints.
