The accommodation was incredibly clean and welcoming, the views were stunning and we were greeted with a lovely bottle of wine on arrival. Free laundry service was an added benefit.

Perfect location, overlooking the sea. Was also close to all the areas we wanted to visit. The accommodation had everything we needed and was well equipped. Very clean and Ella (host) was fantastic with her communication. We couldn’t fault it. We will definitely be booking again!

Best Stay of our Entire Trip!
We recently took a 3 week honeymoon vacation to Europe and hands down, this was our favorite hotel we stayed in. The location is beautiful. You can see the ocean from nearly the entire apartment. It was secluded enough we felt like we really got away from it all, but it wasn’t too far away from any attractions or food. If you stay here, make dinner reservations for the nearest restaurants ahead of time. Yes, there is very little service. SO PRINT OUT DIRECTIONS AHEAD OF TIME or have a GPS. Thankfully our email confirmation told us to do so and guess what, we didn’t get lost. The apartment was very clean and kept up well. It appears it’s been recently remodeled. They had everything necessary to make tea including fresh milk in the fridge. Kitchen was well equipped. We went to the grocery store on our way onto the island so we ended up cooking most of our meals. The bed was very comfortable. The on site laundry was very convenient. And the lockbox was easy to use. If I’m ever visiting again I will happily love to stay here once more!

Pretenders Escape #9 is gorgeous, immaculate, practical, PERFECT! Everything felt brand new (carpet, walls, blankets, dishes, cutlery) as if it had been provided just for us (very well taken care of). The furniture size, arrangement, flexibility (expandable table, sofa couch, etc), & even the style (minimalist) lent itself to the overall experience and use of the space. Though small, it felt massive due to all the amazing windows (that can open letting in the delightful Scottish breeze/sounds of the ocean) showcasing the epic views of the historical coast. The kitchen is well equipped for any cooking or cutting you might want to do (including a microwave for that sort of “cooking”). The shower is a God-send with its perfectly hot water & rain shower head whilst viewing the green hills & distant cliffs through the generous but private window. Easily experience private walks around the property or stay cosy-ed up (though the place is tight as a drum - no drafts at all) with all the lovely blankets provided or read one of the many relevant historical books scattered throughout the home. We very much enjoyed the bottle of wine gifted by the owners! They also provided proper milk, sugar, biscuits to go with tea/coffee (also provided). We met the very friendly & approachable owner / property manager and found her to be delightful and put us instantly at ease. The staff we occasionally saw were always very warm, smiley, and hospitable. Photos don’t do the place justice!!
