    “We rented the property primarily for it's location close to the areas we wanted to visit.”

    Inverary, Loch Fyne, Loch Awe, Crinan, Oban and an overnight's stay in Mull. Secondly for the view from the window shown on the photos which did not disappoint. On the first morning we saw 3 sea otters play by the shore. There is plenty of wild life to see just sat gazing though the window. Seals, porpoise and an array of sea birds. On our autumnal break with sunshine and showers, there was a fusion of red and gold and rainbows. A truely beautiful place and a pair of binoculars is a must. The facilities were not high end but perfectly adequate and in keeping with the old charm of the cottage. Self catering was far more comfortable option for us during the covid pandemic and all in all, suited our means. When sat by door of the conservatory the traffic could be loud so we simply didn't sit there. There's no doubt that if you have an aversion to the sound of a main road you will find the noise a distraction, but for us it didn't detract from the restful time we enjoyed there. In fact the week went too quickly and there's a good chance we would book again.

About the location


Lochgilphead 24 miles; Oban 37 miles;

Inveraray is the traditional county town of Argyll and was founded in 1745 by the Duke of Argyll. It sits on Loch Fyne and alongside the spectacular rebuilt Inveraray Castle. The town was designed to accommodate workers on the castle estate, a woollen mill and also fishermen in the booming herring industry. Many of the properties today are of great architectural significance and are protected. As well as the castle, the town today boasts many tourist attractions as well as an array of shops, restaurants and cafes. The infamous Courthouse and Jail, a floating museum converted from a former lightship. Visit the spectacular National Trust Crarae Gardens or attend the Highland Games. There is superb walking, cycling and fishing in the hills surrounding Inveraray and also the Cruachan Power Station, located inside a mountain. Oban is a pleasant drive, as is Kilmartin with its Neolithic stones. There is an abundance of attractions and all surrounded by amazing scenery.
