  • "Wonderful, very spacious cottage in beautiful location."

    We and our 4 teens had a fab holiday. There is everything you need for proper cooking, a proper home from home, delightful garden, 5 mins walk to beach and coastal walks. This whole area of Scotland is stunning. Wi-fi was absolutely fine for all 6 of us. Highly recommended.

  • "I wanted a holiday with my 2 dogs and time to relax and this was achieved."

    Good walking from the cottage into either the forest or the beach. Good large garden for the dogs to sit outside without fear of them going onto the road. Cottage was spacious, clean and bright and worth the visit. The owner was very helpful and friendly and had 2 lovely dogs and understood what was important to dog owners. Lovely garden and 15 minutes drive from Oban.

  • "Sadly I was unable to play the DVDs I had taken for us to pass away the evenings."

    This was because the DVD player had no remote control so only those DVDs that did not have a menu could be started by the limited controls on the actual machine. Of those we were able to attempt to view some played OK.others did not as the DVD player was of the lowest quality available. We told the owner about the problem but the only response was "the remote had been lost some time ago" In other words hard luck, I am not going to do anything about it. For me this spoilt the enjoyment of the holiday. Also the one shower (not in the en suite) is very old,and can only get the water to tepid, not hot,and the water pressure was so low it made it difficult to wash shampoo out of ones hair.The towels were also very thin and coarse,nothing like the soft and fluffy type the majority of people use.

About the location

BENDERLOCH

Oban 7 miles.

The village of Benderloch lies on the north side of Loch Etive in the West Highlands of Scotland, and forms part of the Lynn of Lorn National Scenic Area. Next to the coast and surrounded by spectacular scenery and views, Benderloch is served by a general store and two restaurants, a tea room and also boasts a Nature Reserve and forest walks. A short drive north is Castle Stalker, dramatically rising out of the water and well worth a visit, while Ardchattan Priory Garden, dating back to the 13th century, has neutral soil and a temperate climate, which allow many fascinating species to grow. With the busy town of Oban only 7 miles to the south and the Inner Hebrides only a ferry ride away, there is much to see and do in this beautiful part of Scotland.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
  • Christmas
