  • “We was expecting to be next to the loch awe but we were to far away to be able to see the loch easily.”

    We also thought we were not going be far away from the nearest shops but it was over an hour round trip. Also there was no write up about the water in the cottage this comes from the nearest stream which is then filtered 3 times then through a UV but the water colour was still brown.After having a shower or wash you still felt dirty. The holiday in the cottage was not what we expected. The road in and out was a single track and long and windy and took forever

    Thank you for your feedback for Forester's Cottage. Loch Awe can be seen from the cottage. We had a lot of rain the week of your stay and this may have impacted the view unfortunately. If you catch us on a clear day the views are lovely. The property is in a rural location and I have asked Sykes to add a note to the website to make this clear to guests. Our water supply is checked and signed off by our Local Council annually. It is regularly monitored and maintained on site throughout the year. I am sorry the holiday wasn't what you expected but I hope it hasn't put you off visiting rural areas in the future. Property Owner

About the location

KILMARTIN

Crinan 7 miles; Lochgilphead 8 miles; Tarbert 21 miles; Oban 30 miles.

The village of Kilmartin sits at the heart of Kilmartin Glen, one of the most important prehistoric sites on the Scottish mainland. In the area there are rock carvings, standing stones, burial cairns and the remains of the Iron-Age fort at Dunadd, the home of the first kings of Scotland. Kilmartin is home to a church, pub, a castle and the Kilmartin House Museum with visitor centre next door, housing a café. The town of Lochgilphead is eight miles away, offering a good selection of cafes and small shops selling a range of goods, foods and crafts, while the village of Inveraray, home to the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, is within driving distance. Close by is Crinan Canal, which is surrounded by the stunning scenery of Argyll and Bute. From end to end the canal is nine miles long, and its sheltered waters make it an ideal place for beginners and the more experienced paddlers to explore. There are beautiful walks to be enjoyed throughout the area from Kilmichael Forest, to those at Port Ann and Dunardry and up over the hill from the stoney beach at Crinan Ferry, from where you can look out over Jura and north towards Mull. A trip to the Scottish Beaver Trail in Knapdale Forest also provides a fun family day out, plus the fishing village of Tarbert gives you superb access to all the ferry points across Kintyre that travel to Gigha, Arran, Islay and Portavadie.

Note: Sorry, this property does not accept infants.
From January 1st 2022 this property will only sleep until 3 people.
