Our 4th stay at An Cos. The house and its surroundings never cease to work their magic! Beautiful. Thank you.

A long way to come from the Eastern Cape, South Africa but well worth it. Great house, great place and spectacular views. Nothing like we have ever seen before- Slanaziwa!

The Jones family July 2022

A return visit for us to beautiful Shieldaig and cosy comfy An Cos. Things we loved this year: The walk to the Falls of Balgy and Loch Damph;the drive to Diabaig and lunch at Gilles Brigde; sailing with Julian. kayaking and the cafe in the village.Whatever the weather an Cos is perfect for curling up and watching the view.

The Shaws July 2022

The weather wasn’t the kindest this year but we still had a wonderful stay. An Cos is the perfect home for cold and rainy days.

A truly unique place to stay. The location of the house is absolutely amazing. We were very fortunate with the weather and were able to eat lunch outside every day with the most beautiful view of the water. Dinners inside still meant we could seal watch! An Cos is without a doubt one of the most well stocked houses our family has ever stayed at. Every gadget was available in the extremely clean and well organised kitchen with highchair and cot available for our baby, who slept better than ever. So did we in the amazing, giant beds! What a great opportunity to relax inside and outside this beautiful home, perfectly located for local hikes and with such spectacular views. We will be visiting again as soon as we can . Thank you to the hosts for the detailed information from booking throughout, making the trip as easy as possible.

The Stirrup Family May 2022

Safely home after a fabulous week. The house was just perfect for the nine of us, so comfortable and such a lovely location. We appreciated the £25 credit at the smokehouse! Of course we went back to stock up on goodies before coming home. We had a fire most nights and it was great to have a good supply of logs.

The Turner Family April 2022

Once again we have had a most fantastic week in An Cos. The weather has been just amazing, but the house is as incredible as always. Perfect location and wonderfully fitted out especially the kitchen. Everything we could have wanted for a family birthday celebration. We’ve seen sea eagles and seals from the house and deer and stags further afield. Lots of great walks, a boat trip at Loch Gairloch and lots of relaxing. Enjoyed Coastal Kitchen, Nanny’s, Gille Brighe and dining in.

Smith Family April 2022

An Cos. Stunningly beautiful and well kept, situated perfectly above idyllic and welcoming Shieldaig, ever changing Loch Torridon. Family friendly, walks from the backyard gate, countless adventures, friendly pubs, a short drive away. Incredible drives south to Applecross, Plockton, and north through Gairloch, Ullapool, to truly unique Lochinver and Highland Stoneware. All this, not possible without our gracious host Sophie, through flight cancellations, Covid uncertainties. Consistently flexible, and always in good humor. Thanks.
