We’ve loved our stay, celebrating Hogmanay at Crosskeys Cottage!

Our arrival on a dark, damp evening, after a 7 hour journey was made extra special by the wee surprise left for us under the Christmas tree – Thank You!!

By the time we get home, we will have travelled 1,000 miles! but we saw and did loads…..

On one of the days we climbed Conic Hill and drove along the road that stops at Inversnaid – ‘the’ best drive of the week – spotted mountain goats, owls and deer and even a stag! The views across the loch here are amazing and the falls at the end make the 15 mile adventure worth it.

We’ve had the most amazing stay here.  The cottage is beautiful, cosy, warm and comfortable and we’ll be recommending it to our friends.

Many thanks, hope to see you again sometime….
