“Four of us stayed for a W/E Break in early March in the Chalet at Mondhuie. The place is very close to prime birdwatching areas, ‘natures doorstep’ being very apt’. We enjoyed the hospitality and warm welcome by Sylvia and the wood burning stove was lit on arrival making it especially welcoming. Would stay again.”

 20th February – 22nd February 2014    Chalet & Bothy

“7 of us stayed at Mondhuie as the first guests of new owners Sylvia and Shane who were absolutely fabulous and made our stay very comfortable. Both the chalet and the bothy are clean and cosy, and fully kitted out with everything you need to enjoy a trip to the highlands, the wood burner being one of the stand out features! We shall definitely return and wish them and their guests all the best in the meantime. Cheers from the Ridleys and Coyles
