Immaculate property in an excellent location with easy access to the Western Highlands and Islands. The apartment is the best equipped we have stayed in. The views are fantastic and the house is set in lovely grounds to explore and relax in. Elaine and Malcolm were great hosts, very helpful and super dog friendly. We (including our collie) highly recommend Lonan House
The apartment was extremely well equipped and beautifully presented. The beds were very, very comfortable( as my grandson said “this is luxury”) An added bonus was the wildlife we were able to see from our window. Deer, Red Squirrels, Rabbits as well as many species of birds coming to the feeders. The owners Malcolm & Elaine were very friendly & helpful. We will be back there again in 6 weeks and are encouraging friends to book up. Excellent
