“Best holiday home ever”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was the second time we stayed at Rock House and it still gave us the wow feeling. It is in one of the best locations in Britain, a 'grand designs' building, full of high quality fixtures and fittings, wonderful view to an idyllic, almost private beach and perfectly situated for exploring the island. The weather this year far exceeded our expectations which only served to increase our enjoyment. We are definitely looking forward to going back in the Spring.

This is an extremely well appointed property in a wonderful location. Surrounded by wild orchids and with ever changing views, this house has stunning modern design but fits well into the landscape. The house was spotlessly clean and the supporting team were very helpful and made us very welcome. The kitchen and bathroom work perfectly. Only tiny niggle was ventilation noise at night - but cured with the flick of a switch. Guaranteed warmth, comfort and relaxation.

We stayed here for the first 5 days of our honeymoon. We were completely delighted, this is one of the most beautiful, coolest places we have ever stayed. The design is outstanding and you can see why it has won awards. The location is truly stunning, a short walk to the beach with some cute (well stocked) wee lochans behind the house.

It was wonderful to arrive to a well stocked fridge and to be able to cook in such a well appointed kitchen. The bathroom was lush with huge tub. We also arranged a days fishing with the estate and had a cracking day at the estuary with local gilly. The perfect romantic hideaway. Can not wait to go back.
