  • This is our second visit:  our first was just Andy and I on our Mini Honeymoon – back in October 2013.  It was wonderful to return with our family.  The stay was beyond everyone’s expectations.  We hibernated and re-charged.  Once again your home was our home and we will return.  Thank you!

Have been able to chill out and enjoy our family’s company –  lovely to see our granddaughter.  Such beautiful scenery –  wonderful skyline and walks by the beaches.  Would love to come again.   Have left you one of our colourings – of an Owl!!  Thank you.

  • We came to Owl Cote to get away from the hustle and bustle and celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary.  It is a very special place.  We did so many things in four days and still found time to relax!  Fantastic sunset at Threve Castle, bird watching at Loch Ken, a wonderful , if tiring long walk from Loch Trool up to Loch Enoch and a walk on the beach.  Would love to return and bring our children!  Thank you.
