The cabin was neat and clean with a fireplace that was needed as we arrived in the rain and the electricity was off but was restored later.It had a coffee station. A 2 plate stove with a little oven, a fridge. Soaps and towels were supplied for the shower.A comfortable bed with an electric blanket.Hiking and the views were incredible.The place can do with a bit of upgrading as the chairs at the counter table looked odd and the 2 armchairs cushions needs a bit more foam in them

Roads not the greatest but from the moment of stepping on to the ground we felt relaxed, almost like coming home I would say. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Edge and would return again.Food very good, a little too much salt for my liking but overeall the meals are good.Staff very friendly and helpful, accommodated us an extra night as we did not want to leave yet !!

We arrived with the clouds so low we could see only about ten metres ahead. Our cottage Pear was lovely and warmed by an oil heater and wood stove. Supper in the restaurant in front of a roaring fire soothed my soul. The next day the sun came out to chase the clouds away and revealed a spectacular view. The Edge is an amazing place to stay.
