“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 17 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We spent a wonderful week here a few years ago and promised ourselves we would go back. We managed it this year and weren’t disappointed. The cottage is in a beautiful location with stunning views across the Loch. The house is spacious and well appointed, with everything you could need, including lobster crackers and seafood picks - we recommend the fresh lobster and crab from the Seafood Hut in Oban. We had a couple of cool days so really appreciated the log burner in the sitting room. There is lovely garden to relax in but also plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. The owners are very helpful and both booking and checking in are easy. We very much hope to return.

We are always especially delighted to welcome back returners! I hope you noticed some improvements in the garden and the house. The Oban Seafood Hut is a must-go-to for fish eaters. We are glad you had a good time.

“A lovely, very well equipped house”
Reviewed 12 June 2018 for a stay in August 2017

Beautiful location on loch. Many historic and scenic places to visit in the area and a week was not sufficient to do and see all that we planned. House spacious and ideal for our extended family. Highlights included visit to Easdale Island, boat trip to Corrievrechan Whirlpool and exploring Kilmartin Glen. Oban and sea life centre good for a wet day. Only disappointment failure to climb Munro near Ben Cruachan because of very bad weather!

We are very pleased that you were able to use the house as a base for your very busy week. You should come again to bag your Munro on a better day!

“Fabulous Holiday Home in a STUNNING location”
Reviewed 12 December 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

We booked Creag-an-Fhithich for a family holiday in June 2017 and it did not disappoint. There was ample room for all 9 of us (including a toddler) and so much to see and do in the surrounding area. (Highlights include Arduaine Gardens, Oban Distillery, Day trip to Mull, so many Castles/ beautiful drives and our absolute favourite, the art hut on the other side of the Bridge over the Atlantic)!
The House itself is charming with stunning views across the Loch and has all the necessities you could need. Easy to book and very friendly.
We had such a super holiday and will most certainly be returning to Creag-an-Fhithich .

“A lovely family home with an incredible view.”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is a lovely, roomy comfortable home with all of the amenities that you could desire (even a garlic press). The views are astonishing and the wildlife is abundant; the seals were a particular highlight. We had a fabulous week doing local walks and visiting Oban.

“Wonderful holiday, wonderful house”
Reviewed 19 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed at Creag-an-Fhithich in late July / early August with family and had a great time. The house is spacious and well kept, with a well stocked kitchen and beautiful views from the front. My 2 young boys loved playing hide and seek in the house and exploring the garden.
There were plenty of things in the area to keep us occupied during our 2 week stay. Lovely walks (short and long), nice gardens (not just Arduaine, but others on Seil too), and days out. We had a day trip to Mull, and a day out on the Jacobite train as well several days exploring Seil and Easdale Island).
We saw lots of wildlife both local to the house and further afield: Heron and seal from the front window, a sea otter just to the west near Melfort pier, Golden Eagles near Loch Awe, and again near Crinan. And then on a boat trip from Seil, we saw porpoise and the giant Sea Eagles.
Can't recommend this place enough - would love to come back again soon.

Thank you very much for your kind review. We fully agree with you that Creag-an-Fhithich is a grand place to base a west coast of Scotland holiday on, however we could be accused of having a slight bias.
We look forward to seeing you again.

“Great house, great location”
Reviewed 16 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a great week here, lots of walking and swimming. The house is really comfortable, and Donald and Denise were really helpful. We visited Easdale Island and Arduaine Gardens locally, as well as several good walks. Will return!

“Great accomodation in a lovely situation for a family holiday”
Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Despite mixed weather we had a lovely family week at Craig-an-Fhithich. This is a large and very comfortable family house with extensive gardens. Bedrooms and the three bathrooms were all generous in size with plenty of storage. The log burner in the lounge was easy to use and gave a very cosy feel to the cooler evenings and the dining room has lovely views across the Loch if you are eating in. The situation of the house is beautiful, at the edge of the lovely Loch Melfort in one of the most stunning areas of Scotland. There was plenty to do nearby and further afield and we used the ferries to Mull and other smaller islands amongst other trips. Arduaine Gardens, just a few miles south of the house, were well worth a visit and free to National Trust members. We had a fantastic boat trip from Croabh Haven with Jenny Wren Cruises which we would all recommend very highly. There was also a useful and good value takeaway menu prepared at the Melfort Village timeshare complex, a mile down the road. So much to do and so many places well worth seeing that we will hopefully return to this part of Scotland in the future.
