“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Much inspired after a New Year’s holiday in Teal Cottage last year, we decided to return for another Hogmanay, but this time staying in the larger Shelduck Cottage. The two cottages are under the same ownership and share a lovely location next to the loch. I have no hesitation in recommending either of them: the location is idyllic, surrounded by nature, walks and lovely views over the lake and the houses are charmingly interior-designed with excellent bathrooms and kitchens and log-burning fires.

We didn’t use the car at all this time, preferring hill and loch-side walks outside the cottages, cooking local delicacies (haggis, partridge and venison), playing games in front of a roaring fire…. It was altogether a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of life in England. We are looking forward to our third visit to Shelduck (or Teal) Cottage for our next Scottish break.

Great Little cottage. The views were ever changing.watched the Deers in the back Garden whilst the Red squirrels ran up and down the trees..beautiful wildlife all around the area. We recommend a visit to Kames hotel for some lovely home cooked food. Lovely walks in Portnavadie. Also done part of the Cowal Way from cottage to Tinabruach!! Quite a strenuous walk so go prepared. Will be back.
