  • "Spacious, clean and tidy accommodation which had everything we needed."

    The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise and we certainly made the most of it. The property was set in a wonderful location, just a short distance from the village and the loch. We would definitely book this property again

  • "A lovely beautiful cared for apartment."

    Spotlessly clean. Jan the owner was very welcoming. We very much appreciated the Scottish welcome hamper. A good base to explore the surrounding area. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "This is a lovely, comfortable, well equipped apartment."

    Beautifully furnished with a full kitchen. Has own front entrance. A very quiet setting but close enough to the amenities of Taynuilt. In a great spot for visiting Oban, Inverary, Rannich Moor and Glencoe. Fort William is just over an hour away by car. Fantastic scenery all around and some great walks from the doorstep.

    It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. It was in a great location for exploring the area and Jan the owner couldn’t have been more helpful. We wouldn’t hesitate to return in the future.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Upper Brackendale."

    The apartment was very clean and comfortable and Jan and Neil made us very welcome. The apartment is in a very peaceful area but with excellent facilities in the village, a butcher, grocer, village inn and tearoom with lots of superb walks and attractions in the locality. We can heartily recommend Upper Brackendale.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Brackendale."

    We were greeted by Jan the owner and had a wonderful gift basket waiting for us at the property which was spotlessly clean and tidy. Whether you are looking to stay relatively local or use the cottage as a base for further travel, it is ideally located. With some great local walks to Loch Etive, the surrounding woods to Inverawe smokehouse for a toastie or into the small village for a drink in the Taynuilt Inn or to visit the local tearoom. Oban is 20 minutes away in the car, with links on the ferries to the Islands. I'd also recommend a visit to Inveraray Castle and the town there. You can be in Fort William in an hour or Glencoe in half that time. All in all, we had a wonderful holiday.

  • "We had a fantastic week staying at upper Brackendale."

    Jan and Neil have a beautiful apartment that has everything you need as well as homemade pancakes and a welcome pack on arrival! Quiet settling surrounded by fields, the iron furnace and Loch Etive. A perfect base to explore the isles and beyond. Would recommend to anyone. Some lovely local spots that we enjoyed Inverawe Smokery and country park which is only a short away . Taynuilt Golf Club Taynuilt Inn kilcreachan Inn delicious food and a pretty drive 6 miles away. The Old Inn - Appin for incredible Highland steaks and a stunning view of Castle Stalker. Walking the circular walk in Kerrera with a stop at the farm hut for some local highland ice-cream. Rosebank E bike hire in Appin to cycle around Lismore

  • "The apartment was very well appointed and situated on the edge of the village meaning that it was really quiet and had wonderful views and plenty of wildlife (loads of birds, red squirrels and rabbits) to watch from the windows."

    A great base for exploring the area and the village has a shop open late, a lovely cafe, post office, shop and pub - all very welcoming. You can do a lovely circular walk directly from the house down to the river via the smokery/ café and back via the loch and the iron furnace. We had a wonderful week and felt welcomed by the owners who provided us with a fantastic hamper of Scottish specialities and home made Scotch Pancakes - delicious. Would not hesitate to recommend and hope to come to stay again sometime.
