"We have never stayed anywhere so welcoming – we feel like we have known you for ages! Your home is breathtaking, as lovely on the inside as the views are outside. We lapped up the delicious food, generous amounts of wine and entertaining conversations - plus your taste in music is impeccable. When we grow up we want to be like you."

Come to beautiful Badrallach

“Ooh, it's a G-plan cave, a cool blend of rough whitewashed stone and glass. Beside a Norwegian Jotul woodburner are baskets of peat and logs. A Vitra chair by Mario Bellini is covered by a sheepskin throw and sits invitingly beside shelves bearing Scottish titles.”

Sally Shalam, The Guardian, May 2009. To read the full review, visit The Guardian website.

"My favourite place is Badrallach, a hamlet on the northwest coast of Scotland, and a place where - come drizzle, sunshine or fog - I spent every summer holiday during my childhood. It's also, mystifyingly, deserted. Even in August, the mountainous soft-purple coast is one of the most beautiful and unpopulated places I've ever visited ..."
