We stopped for one night at this beautiful house and were mesmerised by the view.Diane and Jon were very understanding as the week before we had cancelled at late notice and re-booked. We look forward to returning for longer next time and would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family. What a great end to our holiday in Scotland....

“A note for American travelers: a "king" bed in the UK (and at Canty Bay) is essentially a queen bed in America. So the "super king" is what you are after if you what we would consider a king bed.”
