  • "Probably because of covid no soft furnishings inside and outside."

    Very uncomfortable chairs outside. Fairly clean inside but quite neglected outside. The grass needed cutting and general tidying up and a good sweep needed. The bed was quite short and a new mattress needed. Not quite up to your usual standard.

  • "Just got back from our first stay at Jura, the view from the cabin was amazing."

    ...hence the steep climb up, but it was 100% worth it! The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Overall a fantastic place to stay!.

  • "The views from the accommodation are stunning."

    The weather was fantastic. Only downside is the road up which is steep and potholed. A low slung car might struggle.

  • "Disappointed with the cleaning, particularly as we weren’t allowed in until 2 hours after the original check in time so that the lodge could be deep cleaned."

    Crumbs on dining chairs, dirty grill pan, shower clogged up with hair etc. Nothing major (and wouldn’t normally worry too much) but didn’t instil confidence in the current climate. However, the views were stunning and apart from the lack of corkscrew, the lodge was well equipped.

  • "My parents have been coming to Strontian (staying in the adjacent cabin) for years and we decided to join them this year for my daughter’s first holiday!"

    As she is only 6 months old I was a little apprehensive but we had a great time and the travel cot provided was much appreciated. We even had a Pine Martin visit our terrace at 8.30pm one evening when we were eating dinner. A great time was had by everyone and the whole family have already booked to come back next year!

  • "I had a wonderful week away in a lovely cottage in an amazing place!"

    The accommodation had all the facilities needed to have a relaxing time. And the bedding was to die for! Home away from home! The weather wasn’t the best but didn’t dampen the beautiful views from the cottage. I didn’t want to go home! Will definitely be back!

    plenty of walks nearby and the dog friendly pub just down the road was fantastic....we were welcomed like locals...even Kaiser (our ridgeback) managed to get comfy on the sofa and received treats! A little gem on a beautiful island.

  • "The road leading to the accommodation is very steep and in need of repair."

    It seems that this is outwith the owners hands but they are trying to get something done to improve the situation! I wouldn't let this put anyone off renting the property as we had a great relaxing holiday at Dura and didn't want to leave. We are thinking about going back next year!!

    The view was spectacular. Near to local village, supermarket and cafes. Lovely woodland walk not far as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even our teenagers! Would recommend.

  • "The cabin is absolutely beautiful, was really well equipped, ever thought was given to the details, and view over loch is a joy to sit and look at Only thing I would just tell anyone thinking of staying there is that it's on an island, and you have to pay £8."

    20 for a 3 minute ferry crossing, or drive about 40 miles on a single track road to get off the island, also if you want to leave island ferry doesn't run until 6.40 am, but although there is very little to do on island, unless you just want to do walking or biking, once you leave island it's close to facilities at fort William.

    The cabin has been extensively modernised & improved greatly in that time by the new owners. The most peaceful & beautiful place in the UK.

  • "The property, if anything, undersells itself."

    The setting and views from the decking are fabulous and really should have more made of them in the property description. The ad does not adequately put across the level of privacy that you get, with only the adjacent property in view when relaxing outside or inside the property. We would definitely return, though I doubt that we would be as lucky with the weather again - 26C all weekend!

  • "A lovely place to stay, with such a fantastic view."

    Maybe not easy to walk down to if you're infirm or not able to walk down a fairly steep slope. The lodge itself was very clean, has great facilities and is very comfortable. You need to pay for the ferry crossing if you are travelling anywhere further afield, or take the long way round (a beautiful drive). Local shops and restaurants are all good.
