"The arrival already felt like coming home."
Furniture, mattresses and the pool had been renewed or replaced since our last stay. Gordon and Caraid did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Furthermore, every effort was made to minimise any disruption caused by a severe storm. You can't expect or receive more friendliness, help and support. We are already looking forward to our next stay with friends.
"2nd visit brilliant place great location"
"We loved the property and it’s location."
We knew about the lack of internet prior to our arrival. Compensated, not a great problem. A little annoyed that Skye was intermittent. With horrendous weather no internet, Skye was essential (rugby World Cup) ! Loosing signal 3 / 4 times a day was annoying. Everything else was great. The cottage is perfect in all other aspects. Once the afore mentioned problems are resolved, it warrants a return visit.
Best equipped house we've ever stayed in. Grounds and got tub immaculate. So peaceful and quiet.
"Lovely house and location."
Brief issue with no hot water first morning but rectified by local caretaker ("somebody" had turned off the boiler) Could not get the TV to work. Caretaker fixed it on day 1 but it went south again almost immediately and we couldn't be bothered bringing the caretaker back. otherwise all good and would certainly return.
"An amazing property in a fantastic location, ideal for exploring the beautiful ..."
An amazing property in a fantastic location, ideal for exploring the beautiful Scottish Highlands All the comforts of home and the hot tub was an added bonus, highly recommend
"Lovely home in a beautiful quiet valley."
The hot tub was a bonus and the weather was good for April. Gordon the house keeper and his dog Caraid were there to great us when we arrived and looked after us during our stay. Highly recommended you won't be disappointed.
"5pm arrival in the middle of February when it is dark and the cottage itself is in the middle of the countryside was a bit scary and made the cottage hard to find and phone reception was poor was unable to call the number."
Maybe better signpost outside cottage or earlier arrival time in the winter? Kitchen was amazing have never seen anything like it had everything you need and more! King size bed in second bedroom was hard. Hot tub further away than I have experienced before take flip flops! And robes! Place was beautiful can't fault it really and would return.
"Lovely setting, well-equipped property."
Wonderful hot-tub :) Great location for Oban, which we loved. Also being able to easily go further afield - we loved our trip to Kerrera island. All helped by the most fantastic weather.
"A very comfortable and spacious house in a wonderful location - easy to get to Oban and the nearby countryside, yet away from the tourists in such very peaceful and green surroundings- there was no farm machinery/traffic noise."
Hot tub much appreciated. Gordon was very welcoming and the directions sent were easy to follow. I'd happily stay here again. 2 bathrooms was a bonus (I got my own shower upstairs as the only person under 5 foot 4 - that ceiling is rather low, but the downstairs shower is spacious and fits everybody) It would be useful to have some instructions for the oven (I had to google it to work out which knob was which) and TV/sound system took some working out. The wifi code is well hidden (but couldn't defeat our teenagers). The wifi coped with boys and husband all on their laptops - which I was impressed with given we were out in the countryside. The kitchen is well equipped but could do with some small side plates and a bread board/2nd bigger chopping board. This house came top in our family competition to find the best equipped kitchen in a holiday cottage - beating Jersey where we stayed last year by having a pizza cutter...
"Only issue, and it is a common one in a lot of places, is the mattress in the smaller double bedroom, so much so that one of us slept in one of the single rooms."
Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the house, facilities and gardens were fantastic.
"Whilst picturesque & well equipped, as mentioned by other visitors, there is a need for a general update, as things feel dated."
Some like the single bed mattresses, dirty shower curtain & comically creaking floor boards - need to be a priority and even basics like a property information/instruction book might avoid some frustration. Overall the property layout which offers poor ‘flow’ and easy access to the outside combined with some ‘misses’ like the lack of a dryer - especially in a property with no ‘wet room’- are hard to change and even the ‘brown’ house water might deter some. Sorry but in a market with so many choices - Wouldn’t stay here again.
"Excellent property, lots of space for an extended family (2 teens, 2 parents & 2 grandparents in our case)."
Extremely clean & plenty of everything, from cutlery & cooking pans to towels & toilet paper. Wonderful location with extensive grounds, a private hot tub & access to the river which we did have a dip in! Lots to do in the local area - Oban has everything you need & lots of shops, cafes & restaurants (recommend the Potting Shed especially if you are GF). Ganavan Sands is a beautiful beach, Dunstaffnage Castle is a small but fascinating castle with spectacular views & McCaig's Tower is worth the steep climb. Amazing ice cream in the Pokey Hat too! Further afield Seafari boat trips & Easdale are both excellent as are the cairns & burial mounds at Kilmartin. A great base for the area & a bonus feature was the company of Gordon's dogs who are friendly & happy to chase balls all day!
"We had a lovely stay in this super property which has amazing views."
Lovely gardens and hot tub. Peaceful and quiet. Kitchen was super with everything we needed,washer dishwasher and fabulous AGA and range. Large dining table. Lovely light and airy lounge. Our only little minus point is mattress is second bedroom needs replacing, it’s so uncomfortable. We would def go again
"Everything was perfect, location, heating, hot tub, sleeping, tv."
amazing place to relax after working through the winter many thanks to Gordon
"Lovely house in beautiful surroundings everything was great."
Only thing I would suggest is a cover over the hot tub so you can use it in the rain. Everything else was excellent.
"Very great full for the opportunity to be in a such serene surroundings and the comfortable of the house, everything that we could hope for and more."
Gordon was lovely, checked on us before we arrive and before we leave to make sure that we're OK. The hardest thing to do is when we have to go and leave the beaties behind. Thank you for everything and see you again.
"The house was fabulous,we found the hot tub great used a couple of times during our stay,could not fault anything."
Gordon the caretaker was very helpful on arrival showing us around and how things worked the dogs were very friendly he was around the property regularly. Maybe only one thing the lighting to and around hot tub could be improved.
"Glen Euchar House is set in an idyllic glen with the river Euchar flowing at the bottom of the garden."
It is secluded and tranquil; however Tesco deliver which certainly eases the stress after a long drive from Yorkshire. The kitchen is superbly designed and fully equipped; with the exception of possibly a couple of chopping boards; this is a minor niggle as I honestly thought that I had died and gone to kitchen heaven. Prepping food was a pleasure, the dishwasher was great too as was the washer. Drying was more of a chore and a tumble dryer would be appreciated due to the wet weather we encountered. Locally Oban is only 15 minutes drive away and you have Tesco, Aldi and Lidl to shop at. We did not eat out as I was far too busy cooking in that amazing kitchen!! If you intend going to Mull book in advance as we could not get on with the car; also if you wish to go dolphin watching book in advance too as we were disappointed not to be able to go. The leather suite in the lounge is beginning to look a little tired and the electric recliners did not work. It is still comfortable however and the chair reclines manually. The TV and surround sound are great. The WiFi is useable but only around 6Mbps so dont expect too much. Also the BT home Hub 4 needs updating as it does not cover the whole house with black spots with no signal. The master bedroom floor creaks alarmingly on occasion and going to the Loo in the middle of the night is not a quiet affair!! The hot tub is great with room for 4 in perfect comfort, like some aspects of the house it is looking a little tired cosmetically; however works fine and is luxurious! NB The hot tub is not close to the house and is 2 minutes walk across the lawn and down a few steps; which is not a problem; but would be better closer to the house in my opinion. Gordon (Estate Manager) was excellent and although about the estate daily was not intrusive on our tranquillity. In summary: Fab accommodation in a lovely Glen in Scotland. Totally recommended
"Lovely setting, house had every thing you could ask for."
Hot tub was brilliant
"Had a great 3 generation family holiday."
The house was perfect with wonderful large grounds, children caught tiddlers in the river and loved the hot tub. The whole area is beautiful and had exciting boat trip with safari seeing loads of wildlife. Can't wait to return
"Wonderful, peaceful, secluded setting in a breathtaking area of West Scotland."
We had a fabulous week with our two boys, lots of activities, beaches, skimming stones and the hot tub was an added bonus. The house was well equipped but the mattresses could all do with being replaced, as could the sofas in the lounge. However the house was clean and spacious. Gordon the manager was very friendly but not obtrusive.
"This is a beautiful house to stay in and the grounds are remarkable."
Gordon the caretaker does a fantastic job in maintaining these. The hot tub is old but in working order although be aware of the midges!! The walk down to the river is lovely. One of the most well equipped houses we have stayed in. Plenty of towels provided. Although there were two other lodges on the ground they are very well hidden and we did not feel as if anyone else was near us.
"We was not made aware that there was a lodge and a log cabin on the same site we thought we had complete seclusion"
"The house and grounds are breathtaking, peaceful and relaxing and it is very well stocked, particularly in the kitchen."
Gordon the caretaker is lovely as is his sidekick Caraid, his black labrador. We loved our week there and hope to return. Really enjoyed the wildlife, especially seeing the bats at night and the hot tub was a bonus, what a place to relax looking at that valley
"We can’t praise this property enough everything was perfect and the owners were so lovely, we wouldn’t hesitate to book again if we were in the area and would suggest if you are considering booking to def do it you won’t be disappointed it’s absolutely fabulous."
Well equipped kitchen and comfortable home. Hot tub great. Gordon the manager, was really helpful. The only suggestion I would make is to replace the mattress in the large double bed room. We really enjoyed this stay and will definitely return to the Highlands.
"Beautiful house in lovely setting."
Friendly greeting from Gordon on arrival and hewas on hand if needed. Would definitely recommend
"Total relaxation in beautiful surroundings."
Sitting in the hot tub looking over the gardens and forests was amazing! We went there to have time out and that’s exactly what we got! Will definitely return & recommend to everyone we know.
"The cottage was great - warm, comfortable, spacious, peaceful, with lovely grounds all round and of course the fab hot tub."
The kitchen had everything and more you could want and there were plenty of towels and dishwasher tabs (not always the case when we've rented places). We had a really relaxing long weekend with our three grown up children and one partner, to celebrate a big birthday. It was all just lovely and Gordon was very helpful when we arrived. Thank you!
"Glen Euchar is a beautiful house and Oban is great to visit with bars, shops and restaurants and is a short very easy drive."
The house is in amazing gardens and had everything needed for a wonderful holiday and the hot tub was lovely to have. We appreciated that Gordon was on hand if we needed anything as he lives nearby which is great for peace of mind. The house felt spacious for 5 people (Mum and Dad and 3 teenagers) and there is lots of space and never felt cramped which is important to us with 3 teenagers! The kitchen is excellent and had everything we needed to make Christmas dinner. The dining room is perfect also and we really appreciated the Christmas champers and lovely decorations, tree, lights, etc which meant we didn't need to add anything else. Would highly recommend this beautiful place and it made our Christmas very special indeed.
"An amazing house in an amazing location."
It was the perfect break and we can’t wait to be back.
"A fantastic week at Glen Euchar House."
The house was lovely and we enjoyed the wood fires at night and the outlook onto the surrounding woodland. The grounds are amazing and well maintained by Gordon. Such a peaceful setting and bonus features like the hot tub make this a great place for a family break. Gordon (the manager of the house and grounds) was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend it to anyone!
"The property was fantastic, a hidden gem!"
"I read the previous reviews before booking - and they were true!"
An accurate description of a great place to stay. Really nice and the caretaker was very helpful. Masses to do in the area if you like the countryside and the shops etc of Oban are not very far away.
"As previous people have commented ,it is hard to do justice to the venue,amazing scenery,quiet location but near enough Oban for shopping(Tesco,Aldi,Lidl,retail park)."
Quiet road to Scammadale for cycling,running,walking.Amazing to see the stag on the hill behind the cottage munching away not bothered by us taking pictures.Kids enjoyed playing in the river mostly knee deep,hot tub relaxing with the forest view.Kitchen is a cooks paradise,rest of the house nicely furnished.
"Had a fantastic time couldn't have been any better Gordon the Manager is really great nothing is ever a problem."
"Could do with new sofa and chairs and new bathroom taps and larger bbq"
"This was the most amazing home set in an amazing location."
Can't recommend it enough. The house is really spacious, very very well equipped and the views are stunning. Waking up to a Deer sleeping opposite the bedroom window each morning was just lovely. We were able to really relax. Us and the kids loved the hot tub and so much space for the kids to run around. The only thing I'd change is that we could have stayed longer. The location is great place, so much to do in the area, spoilt for choice. Will we certainly be coming back.
"Lovely house in beautiful surroundings."
We loved the hot tub. The grounds that the house is situated in are lovely and well maintained.
"We had a brilliant time at Glen Euchar house, it was a beautiful home and Gordon ..."
We had a brilliant time at Glen Euchar house, it was a beautiful home and Gordon the manager was brilliant he was so helpful with everything and we loved Caraid Gordon's dog she was so friendly, the hot tub was amazing we all had a brilliant time, thank you so much for such a relaxing lovely holiday, With love from all the Muir family xx
"Probably the best holiday ever house and hot tub amazing."
Would like to go back in the future
"What a gem."
The house was comfy and well equipped and the gardens and views were spectacular. The hot tub was amazing set in an idyllic location in the garden, it even had outdoor speakers set up to play music. The weather let us down but that didn’t matter as we relaxed in the house or sat in the hot tub with umbrella in one hand and drink in the other! It was pricey but we had no regrets about the expense because of the wonderful setting and tranquility the house provided. Gordon, the manager gave us privacy and yet was incredibly helpful when we needed something. He always went above and beyond to help with anything we mentioned.
"Glen Eucher House is ideal if you want peace and quiet."
Set in 18 acres of ground with resident Stag. Be aware that there are no local restaurants. Oban is 9 miles away. The house is extremely well equipped. If I am being picky there are just one or two issues which could be improved. The bed linen is looking a bit worn and could have done with ironing. The lounge suite is also looking tired. The only other issues is that the water comes from the river and despite it going through a filter system comes out of the taps brown. The hot tub is great and well maintained, as are the grounds. Fantastic place for R & R.
"The scenary was breathtaking the house was well eqipped and perfect to relax in, hot tub a bonus even in the rain"
"Fantastic week at the cottage with our family consisting of mum n dad, 11yr daughter, 8yr son, 4 month baby and grandad!"
The pictures on the listing did not do it justice with it’s stunning location, extensive grounds and excellent facilities we really couldn’t fault anything. Our family’s favourite things were exploring down by the stream, eagle watching from the hot tub with it’s stunning views and enjoying family meals cooked with fresh seafood bought direct from the hut near the ferry station in oban harbour. It’s a great base to explore from and we would recommend the car ferry to the Isle of Mull which is gorgeous and Duart Castle there, island hoping from Mull to Iona where the ruined nunnery and Iona Abby are well worth a visit, there is a cute little sea life sanctuary just passed Oban with a great aquarium and rescue seals who perform tricks at feeding times! We would definitely recommend this cottage and would book again if we come back to Scotland.
"Fantastic accommodation and service."
Couldn't fault anything.
"We have just arrived home from an amazing week at Glen Euchar."
As others have mentioned the photos don’t do it justice, it really has the most beautiful scenery. The house is extremely well kept and clean, and has everything you could possibly need. The hot tub was the highlight and also was extremely clean, we spent many hours watching the wildlife from the hot tub. Gordon is really friendly and made us feel very welcome, giving us tips and advice on where to take the kids. All in all a great holiday, and would like to come back in the winter.
"This is a beautiful cottage set in a perfect location."
We had a wonderful time here exploring the land during the day and stargazing in the hot tub each evening. There is lots to do in and around Oban, even in February. The cottage itself doesn’t feel like a holiday cottage but much more like a well loved home. I hope to revisit this cottage again in the future and highly recommend booking here.
"This house is amazing."
..the pictures on the website do not do it justice. There is every type of facility you could ever need at the house, Gordon the caretaker was sooooooo friendly. This house is literally like home from home only much better equipped than ours! Note, there is a Wii game at the house but only one game so take some with you. I can say nothing more than wow! AMAZING...
"Well I'd have to be really picky but the sofas in the living room are well past their best and do need replacing and as this was our fourth visit it is probably more obvious to us."
But I've already booked for 2018 because the location and grounds are amazing
"This was our 2nd time at Glen Euchar House and it certainly won't be our last."
We absolutely love the location with scenery and nature all around us. The house is so clean, with plenty of home comforts. The kitchen it well stocked with cooking instruments and gadgets. The lounge has Sky TV, games console, there are board games for entertainment too. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Outside is stunning also, acres and acres of beautiful well kept land to explore. Feeders to attract lovely little birds and the hot tub is a lovely treat too. Oban is full of lovely little shops and the views are amazing. Everyone seems so friendly too. We recommend this house to anyone who enjoys peace and quiet, nature, walks, fish and chips and photography. Thank you for another wonderful holiday. Look forward to our next.
"Fantastic cottage however it should mentioned in the listing that the tap water cannot be used for anything other than showering."
Bottled water needs to be purchased for drinking and brushing teeth.
"This was our fourth visit to Glen Euchar House and will not be our last."
The house, grounds and area keep beckoning us back every year.
"Photos don't do justice, the grounds are huge and our grandchildren had fun exploring them."
Mr McNiven , the caretaker, was extremely helpful . We will definitely return.
"Stunning property in a beautiful and peaceful location but only 9 miles and an easy drive to Oban."
The hot tub at night is a must followed by a relax in front of the log burner! We will be back and have already recommended this place to family
"This was our third time here and won't be our last we love glen Euchar house."
Gordon who looks after the property treats this place like his own he,s there if you need him but won't be noticeable if u don't. The young woman who cleans this property does a fantastic job and certainly deserves a mention sorry I forgot you're name shame on me . There is a couple of things starting to get past its best in the house and need replacing ie sofas and fridge but it won't yet stop me returning mainly because we love the surroundings and the hotub.
