Wonderful, comfortable cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a beautiful sunny (!) October week staying at Westerly cottage and exploring many of the wonderful places in the area. The cottage is one of several semi-detached homes set in a marina, within view of the water and the hills and islands beyond. Five of us - including our daughter and her two boys, 9 and 11 - found the cottage roomy and most comfortable. It's simply and tastefully decorated, the beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen and bath facilities are excellent. Everything was very clean and in perfect order. (Both Julie, the housekeeper, and Molly, at the pub, were very kind and helpful to us.) We enjoyed walks along the sea walls on both sides of the marina, as well as a walk over the peninsula to Ardfern (the drive to Ardfern is also stunning, with views of the lovely hills along Loch Craignish). We explored the ancient sites at Kilmartin Glen and visited the excellent KG museum (our boys loved it and didn't want to leave); traveled the lovely Glen Coe area; drove the great Fort William to Mallaig route; and spent a wonderful day on the fabulously beautiful Isle of Mull. We only wish we had had another week to spend in this unforgettable area. We would certainly stay at Westerly again, give the opportunity.

The cottage is so comfortable and welcoming,I can't recommend it highly enough. Everything you need is there. The location is great also, lots of places to go from there, a good base from which to explore western Schotland. Just be prepared for all weather and you can't go wrong.

A fantastic cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Westerly at Craobh Haven for a family holiday (2 adults + 2 children) and had a great time.

The cottage is very nice, well furnished, well equipped and in an excellent location.

The weather was good during our stay and we had planned a few trips / activities for our stay . . .

A fishing trip from Oban, Horse riding for the wife and daughter and a ferry trip to explore the Isle of Mull.

So much to do, lot's to see and a very beautiful place to be on holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would definitely stay here again.

A very attractive location

  • 4 of 5

V good and well equipped accommodation (although a dishwasher would have been nice!). Well designed and plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children, we would book again, even though we were unlucky with the weather. A problem with the hot water was sorted quickly by the owner, so a positive experience.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. Sorry we don't have a dishwasher, it's such a little cottage and we only had space for one appliance. With two small children we decided a washing machine/tumble dryer had to take priority! Glad you had a good trip and enjoyed your stay at Westerly. Sasha
