Shaw Family (August 2019)

Our family holiday was a great success. The house was perfect, Fiona was her usual kind self, and everyone enjoyed themselves; so much so that there was a unanimous vote that we should return. I would be most grateful if you would book us in again for next year. Thank you for our splendid holiday.

We had an awesome stay in your house…everyone loved it! It had just the right vibe and was so well equipped. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The weather was amazing as well. We even spent some nice time just relaxing and enjoying the house. The pub was awesome…we were in there quite a bit!  The little store was so handy and had all the last minute essentials we needed. It was great to explore the Torridon region. I have nothing but good things to say!! Thanks again…it was definitely a highlight of our trip!

Beautiful house, spotlessly clean, with all the amenities needed, in a great location with views to match.

Who wouldn’t want to return to this beautiful laid out, well presented home in the most idyllic of settings. We were lucky to have returned for our second visit to Chrissy’s home, using it as a base to finish off some fantastic Munro bagging – it was a pleasure to return to the house where comfort and pleasure was aplenty. If you are looking for a house that has a luxurious look and feel with breathtaking views, along with doorstep outdoor activities this is the place to be. A big thank you goes out to Fiona for being as helpful as she was ,and to Chrissy for allowing us to hire her beautiful home once again.

Please don’t go to An Cos. You won’t enjoy the ever-changing views of the sea and the mountains. You’ll find the kitchen too well equipped and the sitting room too comfortable. You won’t appreciate the practical boot room, or the well-equipped utility room. You will find the beds too large and the bathrooms too smart and efficient. You really won’t like the steam room – much too hot and relaxing. Above all, don’t try and book it for the week that we want next year!

We had a lovely time.  An Cos is a wonderful home located in a beautiful region of Scotland.  We hope to visit again soon.

We had a wonderful week at An Cos. The house is extremely well located at Shieldaig, very comfortable and well equipped. The steam room is a plus, specially after a long day in the Highlands. Chrissy was extremely helpful with different aspects of our trip including: catering, groceries delivery, transportation and local activities. Unforgettable memoirs!

Lovely relaxing stay at this gorgeous family owned house – the location is magical with the most breath-taking sunsets. An Cos is just a few minutes’ walk outside the lovely village of Shieldaig and located right at the water’s edge with the most wonderful views across the Loch. The layout of the house is great: it’s very well presented, well equipped and is clearly a much loved family home.  Fiona the housekeeper is a star too – available, helpful but unobtrusive. We ventured to The Isle of Skye and to Gairloch (off-shore whale watching) but to be honest you don’t need to go anywhere at all – the village has a great pub, smokehouse, cafe plus there are wonderful walks right from your door.  We’d love to come back – thank you Chrissy and Fiona.

We have just had the most wonderful family holiday at An Cos. The house is spacious, well-equipped and attractive inside, and has plenty of outdoor space, so it was possible for all 8 of us to find a bit of space for ourselves on occasion as well as fitting very comfortably into the common areas. At night there was no other sound but the owls. The cooking facilities and equipment were of a very high standard, so this definitely is a house for foodies – and there is artisanal bread to be had locally as well as two different salmon smokeries. The views from the main rooms alone are worth the trip; the village is a pleasant stroll away if you want company (and excellent home baking at the cafe), while in the other direction there is a walk through wood and heather to a tidal island. And if you are energetic, lost of wonderful places to visit, walk or climb. A perfect week – and Chrissy and Fiona even managed to arrange sunny, hot weather for us!
