  • “The other river, the Alladale, is smaller and less productive but it runs by our rental stone cottage, Ghillies Rest, and if you know where to look, you will always find an interesting little pool to round off the day. Then, it’s time for a dram or two, watching the glorious sunsets and deciding which fly to choose for the next day.”

  • “We've had a wonderful long week at 'Ghillie's Rest'. A luxurious cottage with amazing and breathtaking surroundings. The view at the glenn is stunning and never the same for more than a few minutes due to the changing lightfall and clouds... Hiking through the reserve gives you outstanding views and you only can hear the wind blowing through the glenn. Great experience for Scottish Highlands.”
  • “Paradise in a parallel universe! Lots of flowers and birds, a couple of goldfinches just outside one morning; and of course, Golden Eagles.”
