Wonderful time, really quiet, warm, comfy and cozy in beautiful surroundings. Lovely walks and views in the middle of nowhere. Highly recommend.
The barn has everything you need for a home from home with wonderful views. You do have to travel to local amenities as you are at least half an hour to the main road along the Loch but this is a pleasure on a sunny morning
The barn is comfortable, lovely and clean and the owners are very friendly
I would highly recommend a stay
I enjoyed visiting the ruined castles round the Loch, and the walks round the area were quiet and had some spectacular views. I would love to come back and explore further. The property was clean and well maintained and I found it with no problems.
We would fully recommend a stay here. The Barn has everything you need, is very clean & comfortable, a perfect place to stay & discover the area, with lovely walks & views that are stunning. We won't hesitate to book again next time we visit Scotland.
A peaceful and tranquil location to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The property provided a great opportunity to experience the wonders of the Scottish countryside and relax by the wonderful loch. The owners were very helpful and friendly providing great insight into local walks. I would highly recommend a stay.
My Husband and I were looking for a relaxing escape from London for the new year period. The Barn was perfect for us. A good size for two people and had everything we needed for a self contained place. Great views and a perfect place to switch off!
We visited Glencoe, Oban, Isle of Mull and it was a good base for all these locations by car. Our visit was in the low season (and after christmas) so you need to be prepared for a lot of things to be closed, so best to stock up and cook in-house.
Catriona was very helpful with anything we needed. We would recommend to all (with a car) and also hope to visit again.
