The 4th Celtman Extreme Scottish Triathlon takes place on Saturday June 27th and I have three guests staying at Kathleen’s Croft and taking part! Centred around the stunning Torridon mountains this is extreme! Swimming 3.8km in the sea, biking 202km on the Highland roads and running 42km through an ancient drover’s pass and over the Beinn Eighe mountain range. Awesome!
Hi Val, Thank you so much for letting us stay in your gorgeous cottage over New Year.We had an excellent time and will certainly be recommending the cottage which we all felt was even nicer than it looked n the website. Once again, thanks for your hospitality, and Happy New Year!”

We had a terrific week at your cottage which is easily the best we’ve stayed at in recent trips to Scotland.”

Hi Val, Kathleen’s Croft was absolutely superb – as was our weather! Thanks very much.”

We really enjoyed our stay at Kathleen's Croft. The cottage is very well equipped, extremely cosy (with plentiful hot water) and has amazing views out onto the loch and the mountains. There is a pub and also a shop close by and lots of walks in the local area. We would definitely love to come back. Thanks."

We have had a lovely stay at Kathleen's Croft. Very cosy and warm. Very grateful for the wonderful Christmas decorations and little treats. We have stayed at other cottages locally but this one is BY FAR the best. Thank you very much, we will definitely be back in the spring/summer."

This was my second trip to Scotland and my very first to the northern highlands. Torridon is a truly, remote and beautiful area surrounded by incredible scenery.
Kathleen's Croft was everything we expected, cosy, warm and tastefully furnished. The welcome gift of wine and biscuits was very much appreciated.
Every window offered views to the Loch and mountains and my son soon occupied the little viewing area upstairs which he called his office. A place to download photos every night.
I was hoping to light the log burners but alas it wasn't cold enough ha ha.
We loved Shieldaig where we enjoyed lunch at Nannys.
This was the area where we saw our only sighting of Sea Eagles as well as seals.
Despite the unpredictable weather we managed to walk everyday. The most memorable walk was to the Triple Buttress, a fine low level walk offering breathtaking views.
Tesco delivered our weekly supplies which was ideal as not everything can be purchased locally. We did however buy a number of items from the Torridon stores whilst enjoying their cafe.
Not too many places to eat locally unless we wanted to drive a few miles so apart from a meal at the Torridon, not the posh restaurant and several lunches taken elsewhere, we ate in the cottage.
Our experiences of this part of Scotland will always remain with us and we hope to come back again in the future despite travelling over 700 miles to get here. It was worth it!!! Thank you Val."

We absolutely loved your cottage....wonderful style, great taste and perfect location.Seeing a stag just outside the front garden in breaking dawn was a highlight...made more exciting when a pine martin ran across your wall...I thought I was dreaming."
Neil and Anne, June 2016
We really enjoyed our stay and the cottage is as always cosy and homely place to stay, what a lovely location and views."

Thank you very much for a fantastic week in your beautiful cottage. We have been to Torridon many times and it was a lovely place to enjoy it from. It was very homely and we were able to totally relax and enjoy this beautiful setting. "

A brief note to say a very large thank you for Kathleen's Croft. A superb cottage and immaculately presented, please pass our thanks to Lisa; and of course in an absolutely brilliant setting with views across the Loch, herons, mountains that beckon - and an easy walk to the pub. We had the full menu (!) of late March weather but still managed 3 mountains days, one coastal bog trot and 2 days as tourists....so back to work for a rest! Many thanks."
Gavin, March 2016
I'm so pleased Kathleen's croft is available. It is by far the best cottage we've stayed in at Torridon. Roll on the summer holidays and thanks Val"

Returned to this truly idyllic cottage in October - yet again blessed with glorious weather all week. This has become our favourite place to be - the perfect mixture of a wonderful warm and welcoming cottage with stunning scenery, walks, wildlife and food (our christmas smoked trout came from the Applecross Smokery!). We will be back!"
Jonny, November 2015
A very comfortable old and quaint cottage near Torridon village that is very quiet, has all the modern amenities including wi-fi for those of us who want to keep in touch, great self-catering facilities, good eating out restaurants in the area and has loch fishing, both sea and fresh water close by. Superb walks and mountain climbing all around."
Jack, Oct 2015
Once again a wonderful stay. Fantastic walks, fabulous food both at home and out, all in a beautiful location. The weather was on our side and we couldn't have had a better week in which to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary. Thank you"
Beck and Douglas, September 2015
The Cottage was great; a great place to spend the week. The location really suited what we wanted to do on our visit also. We had a fantastic time! Many thanks.
Karla, Sept 2015.
Kathleen's Croft is just perfect. It is a beautifully situated house, tastefully decorated in Val's inimitable style. Fabulous walks, fishing and food all around - what more could we ask for? Cannot wait to return in October.
Charlotte and Jonny, June 2015
Just a quick note to let you know we had a wonderful time at Kathleen's Croft. The cottage is beautiful and very comfortable. We both found it very relaxing sitting by the fire with a gin and tonic after walking, exploring or taking a seaplane over Skye! We will definitely be back.
Mark and Sarah, May 2015
Love the cosy warm cottage, great views, great walks, great everything. Can't fault it. We don't want to go home!"
Carol, John, Gareth, and Gemma, April 2015
I would like to say a huge thanks again. Both Linda and I had an amazing stay in Kathleen’s croft over the weekend - as soon as we arrived we felt so at home. The cottage and the local area is just stunning. The footpath directly behind the cottage is just amazing.I’m already looking forward in returning in June".
Adam, Feb 2015
We had a wonderful break and arriving in the dark with cold wind and rain it was so nice to find such a cosy welcoming cottage especially with all the extra christmas touches too - all very much appreciated, thank you!! Kathleen's Croft is beautiful and well equipped."
Margaret, December 2014
What can I say! Amazing, Amazing, Amazing. We Loved the drive up - the roads were amazing, Your cottage is probably the nicest cottage I've ever stayed in. The attention to detail at the cottage is rather awesome- congratulations for creating such a superb cottage. The local & surrounding area is absolutely stunning. The Friday night was like a scene out of a Harry Potter film - the mountains were snow topped, stars out and a full moon made everything rather picture perfect. The whole area had a small power cut for an hour or so on the Sunday - this was also perfect. We had the log fire going, had a glass of red and just chillaxed! As you can tell we had a great stay. Thanks again."
Adam and Linda, Dec 2014
I am writing to thank you for renting us such a beautiful croft. My wife and I have travelled all over the world and have been to places that people rave about, ie The Fjords of Norway or Milford Sound in New Zealand. For me they don't match the beauty of Loch Torridon and the surrounding area in autumn. This was really the best holiday I have been on for a long long time. I wanted to stay forever!!"
Pete & Anna - October 2014
Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful stay in your cottage at Annat last week. The cottage was perfect both in location and in facilities. You have done it up nicely. We both agree we would love to return next year, there are so many mountains still to climb! Thank you, especially for the underfloor heating, bliss."
