    THE COTTAGE IS IN A WONDERFUL SITUATION WITH A VERY LARGE SURROUNDING GARDEN, PERFECT FOR OUR DOG AND LOVELY TO RELAX OVERLOOKING THE HILLS AND SEA. THE COTTAGE IS LARGE AND COMFY BUT WE DID HAVE SOME PROBLEMS. THE OIL FIRED RANGE WAS SO DIFFICULT TO CONTROL, AN INDUSTRIAL ENGINEER MAY HAVE UNDERSTOOD THE INSTRUCTIONS BUT WE HAD ONLY 6 DAYS TO MASTER COOKING ON IT OR IN IT. AFTER BURNING 2 MEALS WE GAVE UP AND ATE OUT OR USED THE MICROWAVE WHICH WE DO NOT LIKE. THIS SPOILED OUR HOLIDAY AS THE GOOD SCOTTISH BREAKFASTS WE HAD PLANNED WERE NOT TO BE. SOMETIMES THE HEATING CAME ON IN THE EARLY HOURS OF THE MORNING AND WENT OFF WHEN WE GOT UP SO WE COULDN'T HAVE COOKED BREAKFAST IF WE WANTED TO TRY AGAIN, ALSO THE SHOWER IN THE UPSTAIRS ENSUITE JUST RAN COLD NO MATTER WHAT WE TRIED, ONLY ONCE IN THE EVENING,IT CAME SCALDING HOT! THE SHOWER ATTACHMENT DOWNSTAIRS HADN'T A PROPER SHOWER HEAD. AGAIN, WE FEEL THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE. WHEN WE STRIPPED THE DOUBLE BED DOWNSTAIRS WE WERE APPALLED TO FIND THE DUVET WAS TORN, WORN AND DIRTY ROUND EDGES AND WE COULDN'T BELIEVE WE HAD SLEPT UNDER IT. THE DUVET COVER WASN'T MUCH BETTER BEING WELL WORN AND ROUGH FLANNELETTE. ALL IN ALL, A LOVELY HOLIDAY WITH SUNNY WARM WEATHER BUT DIFFICULT IN THE HOUSE WITHOUT ESSENTIAL FACILITIES. IF THE COTTAGE WAS UPDATED e.g.KITCHEN AND ATTENTION GIVEN TO DETAIL,THIS WOULD BE THE PERFECT HOLIDAY DESTINATION. THE OWNER HAS ATTEMPTED TO REPAIR THE ROUGH TRACK TO THE COTTAGE BUT IT WAS STILL DIFFICULT IN SOME PLACES EVEN FOR OUR 4X4.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We realise that not everyone is familiar with cooking with an oil fired range so we leave a set of instructions that we believe to be clear and concise in the kitchen, signposting a detailed handbook and instruction manual. ‘Stanley’ is programmed to come on at 7 a.m. and turn off automatically three hours later and similarly in the evening. It can be turned on and off at any time during the day or night and the temperature control is easily adjusted. We were very surprised when we were informed that the shower was not working as it had only been fitted on 31st March by a local professional. Therefore we paid for the manufacturer service engineer to inspect it and he was able to confirm that the shower was in perfect working order and subsequent visitors have confirmed this. We’re sorry you didn’t appreciate the cosy feel bedding which was purchased when the bedroom was newly decorated in February. Whilst the farm track belongs to the local farmer and not our direct responsibility, we spent a week previous to your visit filling the potholes that had developed during Scottish winter weather. In the process we moved over 20 tonnes of hard-core to improve the surface and it is easily accessible for normal vehicles.
