“Fabulous Cottage for Exploring, Seil, Oban and the many Islands”
Reviewed 8 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Fantastic, warm and well equiped cottage on Seil. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed the fire and complimentary bottle of red the first night we arrived. A good location and walking distance to the pub however it's not always open so check before! Property is also only 20 mins from Oban and the ferry terminal to the islands, we had a fantastic sunny day in Mull, a highlight of the trip. Jean, thanks for your hospitality and a lovely stay, I have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.

“Peaceful holiday in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

Alma cottage exceeded expectations. On arrival there was a small toiletry welcome pack and a bottle of wine which were gratefully appreciated. Doing the inspection round of the cottage we were extremely pleased and surprised by all that was in the property, and I think it would be difficult to come up with something that was missing especially in the kitchen. Although the cottage is on the road through Seil, (as are a large number of the properties on the island), there was very little road noise and that tended to be only when doors and windows were open. It was lovely to sit on the small decking area when the weather permitted. Saw quite a !ot of wildlife around the cottage both on the ground and in air. Good place to visit surrounding isles and areas. Would definitely use this accommodation again.

“Lovely dog friendly cottage”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The cottage was beautiful. Very clean and homely. Enjoyed sitting in the conservatory for breakfast in the mornings and the cosy livingroom in the evenings. The Isle of Seil is idyllic and only 30 minutes drive to Oban. It was just a pity that the weather was so bad during our stay. We would definitely rent Alma Cottage again.
