The Malabar is the largest of the chalets with a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. The bathroom has a large walk in shower. There is a spacious living room and a separate kitchen. The full length windows covering one wall of the living room offer great views out to the loch, and make the room bright. The verandah to the front is perfect for enjoying sunny summer evenings.

Mehrdad Sheibani Ellary Holiday Cottages reviews:

Beautiful scenery. This is a get away from it all break and just enjoy the peaceful surrounding everywhere you go. We stayed the first week in Aug as a family of 4 and we loved it. Would love to try one of the cottages on our next visit and hopefully not in a too distant future. The staff are kind and very helpful.

Gerald Bowen Ellary Holiday Cottages reviews:

Just got back from an amazing week at Ellary, we stayed in one of the chalets which was well equipped with everything we needed for the week. The main reason we stayed here was the for the location and it did not disappoint! It was incredibly beautiful and we will definitely be returning! Very sad not to be waking up to the stunning sunrise. Thank you all at Ellary for our stay.

Michelle Rock-Davis Ellary Holiday Cottages reviews:

Magical place, our children loved every second - watching the friendly seal, spotting eagles, swimming in the loch, collecting sea glass on the shore. We can't wait to go back.
