Palmer family (18 – 31 July 2014)

A lovely house in a special location. We enjoyed superb weather in the first week and have explored he area. Highlights include our boat trip to Rona and the merriment of the Applecross Highland Games. Many happy memories and we all appreciated the relaxing environment at An Cos.

This has been, quite simply, the greatest escape. An Cos is a beautiful home, the Scottish highlands are breathtaking and little touches like leaving homemade scones and having such well-stocked bookshelves were just cherries on the cake. We have seen eagles, seals, porpoises, cormorants, oyster catchers, a skua, highland cattle and herds of deer, all of which have firmly secured a love of this area and a desire to further explore Scotland. Within only a week we have been able to leave behind the stresses of everyday life and fully emerse ourselves in this spectacular haven. Thank you for enabling this and for giving us such great memories.

Hodgkiss party (8 – 14 August)

Fantastic surroundings indoors & out and the perfect setting for fun with family and friends! Gorge scrambling, local coastal walks, highland pass drives and the Torridon sea tour have all made for a spectacular holiday. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Menzies family (15 – 21 August 2014)

A seriously damp week on the weather front, but another happy and fun week at gorgeous An Cos. This is still a truly beautiful area, even in lashing rain and gales. And a gorgeous house to return to at the end of wet walks was a joy.

Hillcoat family (15 – 21 August 2014)

Our first and definitely not our last stay at the beautiful An Cos. Stunning views and even though it rained 90% of the time it was still a lovely holiday.

Taylor family (22 – 28 August 2014)

We have been blessed with blue, cloudless skies. We’ve had an amazing holiday‚Ķ. a holiday with four children. We never thought that was possible! Places visited: Applecross Inn – a great crab salad, Nanny’s – everyday! – amazing porridge and the kids loved the bacon sarnies and hot chocolate. We did the Torridon Sea Tours – fantastic. They are the font of local knowledge. On the boat we saw Diabeg so the next day we drove there and had a fabulous lunch at Gille Brighde. We purchased 24 langoustines from Torridon smokehouse. The house is beautiful, an utter treat where everything has been thought of. Thank you! The welcome tea was lovely and just what we needed on arrival. I’ve run out of superlatives! An Cos we’ll see you again in 2015. We can’t wait.

Matchett family (5 – 11 September 2014)

As all previous visitors – superlatives abound. Thank you Chrissy – your house is beautiful. We have had a truly wonderful week and were blessed with fab weather too – such a bonus. Eaten and drunk like Lords and all got to the summit of Beinn Eighe! Hope we shall return.

Appleby group (25 – 31 October 2014)

What a wonderful week we’ve had. We’ve spent hours just appreciating the views, totally captivated by the loch. We loved the cosy fire and the welcome tea was such a delicious and welcome treat on our arrival. Fiona was lovely, very welcoming and helpful. We ate locally in the pub in the village, Applecross and the Torridon Inn. See you again soon An Cos, we’ll miss you.

Merri Hall, Startley, Wiltshie (23 – 30 May 2014)

Fabulous family get-together in our favourite place, NW Highlands of Scotland. An Cos is a beautiful, perfectly equipped and exceptionally comfortable house. And, of course, the weather was very kind to us, as it so often is when we visit this beautiful place.
