Very spacious, comfortable & clean accommodation with lovely views over Loch Awe & the hills behind. It was very peaceful staying here you could just stay in the cottage & enjoy the views & walks without using your car.
Well stocked kitchen and a dishwasher & washing machine were a great bonus. Catriona is lovely & was very helpful when we arrived explaining everything we needed to know.
We would highly recommend this cottage & hope to go back in 2017
The week went so quickly and we walked a lot, we saw wonderful places like Arduaine Gardens, Monument Hill at Dalmally, enjoyed walks along Crinan Canal and through the forest to the Blarghour dam, and we ate out at the Loch Fyne Seafood restaurant.
This has been our fourth visit and we will take away such happy memories of the stunning views of Loch Awe and the sunsets over the hills and lochs.
The cottage is so well-appointed and spotlessly clean to make our stay so comfortable. Thank-you for the delicious shortbread which was here on our arrival. We also found the book on the history of South Loch Awe-side absolutely fascinating. We're sure we will return and thank-you so much. H&J
Everything was like the description (even more than we expected), A nice, clean, well prepared home with a good contact to the owners, who cared immediately for the few questions we had.
We could enjoy a week of relaxing, beautiful countryside and would propose everyone coming to this location the view from the sitting-room and the view from the top of the "hill" (take at least half an hour to get on the top, although it seems just a short way) - you will have lasting memories of a beautiful scenery. And there are lots of walks, climbing and (by car) places to visit.
We recommend this property and will probably come back when visiting Scotland.
