About the property

Cottage in Port Appin, Appin, by Oban, Strathclyde (Inc. Islands), Scotland - Like Being On An Island! (Without the inconvenience!)

We have aimed for a comfortable cottage offering our visitors a "home away from home" with many "extras" that are often missing from holiday self catering accommodation. Four bedrooms, two doubles and two twins, the doubles are both en-suite. Two sitting rooms, one with an open fire, the other with ever changing views over the sea loch and mountains. Two large decking areas allow you to enjoy the outdoors too. We have been told by guests that our self catering cottage is "just ideal" and is very well equipped.

Guestbook comments from the manager

From Trip Advisor (edited because of space here)

June 2013

"Fantastic accommodation!"

We had the most wonderful stay at Bothan Darach! I cannot say enough about it, but I will try.

The location was really nice. Remote, but close to Port Appin, Oban (30 minutes drive), and Glencoe (30 minute drive), Inverness (2 hours), Kilmartin (1.5 hours).

4 beautifully appointed and remarkably comfortable bedrooms.

Beautiful and spacious kitchen with very nice dishes, appliances, and kitchen gadgets (my dream kitchen). The best equipped rental kitchen I have ever seen.

2 living spaces (upstairs has a fantastic view)

The house was filled with books, board games, DVDs, etc to entertain everyone in case we just wanted to stay in and relax

There was an incredible amount of space for the 11 of us! We never felt like we were crowded at all. Plenty of hot water and water pressure.

Really enjoyable time and really enjoyed the Scottish hospitality! Dreaming about coming back again.

Fantastic Appin Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Yes, the weather was fantastic, but our family holiday to the Weat coast of Scotland was enhanced by our spacious accommodation and warm welcome bestowed upon us from Dennis. The description of the cottage was very accurate, two spacious lounges, the top one with spectacular views. Large grounds for the kids to play in and great bedrooms with comfy beds. Great location, a short walk to the local shop and a hidden beach with rock pools and sand for the kids to enjoy and explor. Dennis was superb, ensuring we had a great welcome package after the long drive and was ever helpful with links to local attractions prior to the holiday. We will defiantly be back, as for recommending this to anyone else, we've already told the rest of our family to go there, what else can we say!

Owner's Response: Thanks Matt glad you and the family all enjoyed the cottage. When ever you come back, though, I can't guarantee the same weather you know you'll be most welcome!
