2018 Rental for the house is £650 per week, all inclusive ( we only do weekly rentals ) this includes all electricity, coal if required, bedding, towels, and unlimited wi-fi. There is nothing whatsoever else to pay. We operate a flat rate rental, as Spring & Autumn rental requires higher electricity and coal consumption, compared to the warmer summer months. Change over day is Saturday.
Well behaved dogs are welcome ( Maximum two ).
The dining kitchen has a woodburner/multifuel stove, and is fully equipped, including a fan oven, 3 ring hob, grilling Microwave, and there are also a dishwasher and small washing machine. There is no television signal at Second Coast, we have a TV license so you can access BBC player, and you will find a flat screen TV linked to a DVD player, with a selection of DVDs.
There is also an extensive range of books, and over 60 CDs, ranging from local traditional music, to modern soul. For the musicians there is a guitar and mandolin, which you are welcome to use.
Outside in front of the house, there is a large garden, with benches to sit out on, and a Summer House with more garden furniture, and a Barbecue. Bikes can be kept dry in the adjacent Byre.
We operate very much on a trust basis and do not require a breakage deposit, however any damage that involves an insurance claim will render you liable for the small insurance excess.
If you require provisions on arrival, Laide Stores http://www.laide-postoffice.co.uk, will make up an order for you
The house has very steep stairs that are open at the side, and therefore is not suitable for disabled. Small children will have to be helped on the stairs. Furthermore there is an open stream in the garden, that could be a hazard for small children at times of heavy rain
