Nice cottage

"Lovely cottage, very nice inside. However the roads around the cottage are not very safe to walk on. Cars drive round too fast. The local pub is 150 yards we were made very welcome. You can't get to the sea from the cottage and the loch across the road was a fishing loch and couldn't even walk around."
