About our home

Our Lakefront cottage provides a comfortable setting for enjoying Kinloch and the surrounding areas.
There are views of the lake from every room, the lounge providing a particularly spectacular scene. The house has two double bedrooms and a third that has a set of bunks and a single bed. The master bedroom has an ensuite and the second bathroom has a bath/shower for those who prefer it.
The kitchen is central,surrounded by the family room, dining room and lounge making it a very user friendly area.
In summer the large sliding doors at the front and rear provide an airy indoor/outdoor flow onto the decks which give the option of sun or shade.
In winter time the gas fire and electric heating turns it into a cosy warm retreat.


More about us

  1. We are two retired couples (sisters and their better halves), who have decided that there is still a lot of the world to see. We are looking forward to spending some time in another country exploring it for ourselves, rather than taking a tour. We enjoy a game of Golf, walking, cycling (well maybe..) and we are interested in learning how life is lived in cultures different to our own.
