    Friendly and helpful owner.

  • "We had a great stay at Mullach and were really pleased with the accommodation."

    It was even better than we were expecting from the photos and catered to all our needs. It was very clean and was really helpful for essential things like soap, washing up sponges, washing up liquid and towels to be provided. We would love to stay there again. John was really friendly and helpful in suggesting places to visit and showing our son his chickens! We had a lovely time playing on the enclosed paddock with our son and dog, with stunning views. We loved the peace, quiet and beautiful scenery. Thoroughly recommended, thank you. Michelle

    Great location if you fancy nature and the mystical beauty of Scotland just around the corner. The owner John not only really added to our holiday with inside local knowledge of places to see, but also with enjoying talks and lots of great laughs. Certainly a place to return too!

    The owner is on hand with help and local information if required. We love this cottage, and the area. Just completed our third visit there, and will be back again.

  • "Mullach is a great wee holiday cottage in a fantastic location."

    I initially had reservations when I saw that there were two cottages in the same location and that the owner's house was also adjacent but it wasn't a problem at all. We hardly saw the people from the other cottage and John the owner was really helpful. It's a fantastic place for a holiday with dogs. Endless places to walk and there is even a huge field near the house where you can let them run around and not get into mischief. The cottage itself is beautiful - well designed, tastefully decorated and well-equipped. Everything you need for a great holiday. Could have happily extended my stay for another week!

  • "Top notch cottage."

    Spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. Ideal base for the area. Easy access to an extensive variety of walks and historical sites. Perfect for me and my two dogs who loved the host, we’re rural so rarely see anyone and they loved seeing John. John was a perfect host, full of handy information, available if needed but not intrusive and happy to answer queries. I’d highly recommend Mullach for the perfect break. Thank you John and best wishes to Sue.

    Once again the weather was extremely kind to us so getting out and about to explore this beautiful part of Scotland was easy. John was on hand for anything that we needed and the cottage was as good as it was last year.

  • "Immaculate and well-equipped cottage in an idyllic setting."

    Helpful owner who is extremely knowledgeable about the area. We managed the track up to the cottage fine in our very average (automatic) family car every day - the owner's tips were useful, though, so if in doubt ask for advice.

  • "The cottage and location was excellent."

    The scenery and views of the lock from the paddock breathtaking. John and his wife were also lovely hosts with John providing us with fantastic knowledge of all the surrounding areas for the best places to visit and experience. Anyone wanting to escape from the madness and hectic experiences of most peoples normal daily life then this is definitely worth a visit. Me the wife and our dog Oscar fully enjoyed our holiday and would gladly revisit the next time West Scotland

    Equipment and facilities within the cottage were excellent. The driveway was easily manageable and our dog loved the grounds surrounding the cottages.The only negative was that we would have preferred a second sofa rather than two rattan chairs with cushions.

  • "Perfectly comfortable, except for the hot water which was dangerously hot and since the faucets were not of the mixing variety, it could provide a hazard."

    Would have been nice to have had some extra blankets and pillows provided although these may have been removed due to Covid. Host was very friendly and checked in to make sure everything was going well. Drive up to the cottage is not for the faint hearted.

    We are quite concerned to receive this feedback. The water heating is on a domestic setting which has been the same for over twenty years with no complaints. The extra pillows and blankets have been removed because of Covid but could easily have been provided on request at the time instead of including in feedback. There is a note in the cottage regarding extra requirements! The track to the cottage is quite uneven at the moment due to the very wet winter weather but will be hopefully repaired soon. comcomplaintat the Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved this cottage."

    If you are looking for a 'get away from it all' holiday but with easy access to the wider part of this area of Scotland, then I cannot recommend Mullach highly enough. The setting is idyllic, so peaceful and the ideal place to unwind. We had neighbours staying in the other cottage but did not hear anything from them and had a huge front garden which we could just relax in. John, the owner, could not have been more helpful and gave us some really useful tips of where to visit. Our 16 year old loved the upstairs bedroom and our 2 year dog loved the paddock to run round in. We did have the added advantage of fabulous weather while we were there but Mullach would be a perfect place to stay no matter what the weather was like. We hope to return at some point in the future.

    Cleanliness and the condition of the property were excellent, though the access track from the road is a bit rough. If you have a furry companion with you who needs a vet, we found Dalraida practice in Lochgilphead to be very good.

    The cottage was very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. Initially the road up to the cottage was a little off putting but we soon got used to it. The situation is lovely with great views from the paddock. John and Sue are lovely and it was great having them there to ask about places to visit. We would have missed a few gems otherwise. The cottage itself was as described in the advert, just right. It was great to see it had everything required and lots of nice touches like, candles and matches and even a torch. Good quality bedding, pots and pans etc. This made such a difference to the comfort of our holiday. There was nothing missing from the cottage that I needed. We would definitely recommend this cottage and would like to thank Sue and John for a really lovely relaxing week. We will be back.

    We don't walk - no dogs, and my wife's seriously disabled - so the car does the work, but there are dozens of wonderful mountain and 'seaside' drives within a few miles of the cottage. Particularly memorable, the drive from Kimelford to Loch Awe, Craignish Point, Easdale and Luing, and Tayvallich and beyond - we watched an otter fishing at Keills (the end of that little peninsula, overlooking the Sound of Jura) for well over an hour, heaven on earth! Not nearly so remote, but fascinating, is the ever-so-pretty Crinan Canal. The cottage couldn't be more cosy, nor the owners more friendly, helpful or unobtrusively welcoming. A week's not enough.

About the location

The picturesque coastal village of Ardfern sits on the Craignish Peninsula in Scotland’s beautiful and dramatic Argyll region. An ancient settlement, there is evidence of population at Ardfern dating from 600 AD when contemporaries of St Columba were here, plus there is a ruined church on the Peninsula dating from 12th century. The village today contains a pub, shop, craft centre, tea room and a large marina, ideally placed for sailing off the west coast. A second marina is nearby at Craobh Haven and the towns of Lochgilphead and Oban are well worth a visit offering many shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The surrounding scenery is what makes the area, with the hills, lochs and mountains offering spectacular walking, plus there is fresh water and sea fishing nearby to delight the angler.
