    The flat is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The expansive windows in the main living area provide a fantastic viewpoint across the peninsula. Moreover it’s central location means you’re close to shops, a cafe, art gallery and shops. We definitely hope to return :-)

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay, and I hope you do come back in the future. Best wishes Rhonda Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic week at the Top Flat and as per all the reviews the view was to die for, literally spent hours staring out at the wonderful vista."

    . Apart from the view the highlight of the flat for us was the open fire bag the flat was so warm. We had a couple of queries which were dealt with quickly by the owner who was absolutely lovely. The village itself is small but had what we needed, small shop for basics and a pub but as the nearest large supermarket is quite far we’d recommend taking everything you want with you if you can. Tip if you’re into your seafood take the ferry over to Tarbert and get the fresh seafood on the harbour (Prentice Seafoods) absolutely delicious and very good price. It had all we needed for a very cosy and relaxing weeks, we hope to go back! Thanks very much

    Thank you for your positive feedback, it is much appreciated and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "In general, wow!"

    The lodgings were absolutely wonderful. There is an array of windows which serves a picturesque view at all times, no matter the weather. The facilities provided all work in good condition, especially the heating, which can be either prepared with the chimney or with a normal radiator. We didn't have the chance to try the chimney but the normal heating was very effective. The spacious flat was also very clean. The last thing to add is the great communication with the homeowner, definitely making our first stay in Scotland much smoother and without any worries.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that everything was to your satisfaction. Best wishes, Rhonda Property Owner

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    Great base for exploring the area - walking and accessing the water with our kayaks. Views from the flat were outstanding, and while it rained for the first three days of our stay, seeing the sun and moon rise over the Kyles each day during the second half of the week was stunning!

    Thank you for your positive feedback. I am glad that you had such a good time, even with the rain! The views are indeed stunning and the changing weather patterns can be quite spectacular Property Owner

  • "The flat is perfect for a peaceful and restful holiday."

    The views are stunning from the windows of the flat. The bed is really comfortable and we had a good week . The bathroom is adequate but could do with upgrading looking a little tired.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I have taken onboard your comment about the bathroom - it has recently been refurbished, however I will look at it with "fresh eyes" to see what else can be improved upon. Property Owner

    Watching the moon rise and reflect on the sea was magical. We had two stunning, sunny days and so took advantage of the beautiful local walks. A really lovely, friendly area to visit and our only regret was we couldn’t stay longer. The flat was spotless, warm and comfortable and had everything we needed. We’ll definitely visit again.

    Everyone was so friendly, pub over the road did good food and was dog friendly and well a stocked shop next door was a bonus. Don’t be put off by the steps or the parking it was so worth it to have the pleasure of staying in such a lovely location so close to the sea. The weather was wet but it was always good to get back to the flat as it was so lovely and warm.

  • "Truly a fantastic seaside holiday property!"

    Views are outstanding across the water to the island of Bute. Space is amazing and the long window seat is perfect for relaxing and watching yachts drift by and seabirds on or beside the water. The kitchen is thoughtfully equipped with all you will need and we loved the touch of a welcoming tea/coffee tray for the two of us on our arrival. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was also thoughtfully equipped. There were two other bedrooms which we didn't need, one a single and the other with a bunk bed, so the flat is ideal for a family break. We had fabulous weather all weekend and it was so peaceful to enjoy a glass of wine in the back garden sitting at the wall which overlooks the shore and sea. This was a very, last minute break and the owner was really helpful in organising this for us which was very much appreciated. All in all a PERFECT chill out weekend flat - or week if you're very lucky!

    Such a well stocked little home, I hardly needed to bring anything but clothes! We had a fabulous time - it rained relentlessly but the view more than made up for it. Fantastic fishing to be had, brilliant neighbours, comfy beds (soooo cozy!) and an all round wonderful week. Thank you so much Rhonda and Brenda. Just lovely. We will definitely be coming again.

  • "A nice spot, though the area tends to slow down and in a lot of cases things are shut for winter by the beginning of November."

    The flat itself is as advertised, though the view is incredible and the pictures really don't do it justice. The wood provided for the fireplace was not nearly enough, though we were informed that bringing our own was advised as the local supply was unpredictable. Electricity heaters were also great, though the power is prepaid and there is an extra cost if you run out -don't worry though, we were provided with more than enough for our stay. Everything was amazing. a really good place to stay, and the locals are very open and friendly. The local restaurant across the road (Botanica) is really good, the pub was very homely and the driving in the area is lovely, with quite (if narrow in places) roads.

  • "Fab holiday and a fantastic location."

    The ONLY reason we wouldn't re-book this accommodation is that we have now explored this area, and there are so many more places to visit. Would definitely recommend it to other families wanting a comfortable, reasonably priced holiday in the area. The view from the panoramic lounge windows is just fabulous - you'd never get bored of it! The only comment I would make is that the pictures on your website show a telescope in the lounge, which isn't there in reality. Fortunately we had taken 3 sets of binoculars, and there was a set there too.
