“Grand country house with a relaxed vibe and great hosts”
Reviewed 14 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We rented one of the two bedroom suites. Everything was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The appliances ('fridge, stove, dish washer, clothes washer/dryer) were all new and made the self-catering aspect of the place delightful. The bathrooms were outstanding.
Fatima greeted us with fresh shortbread, cake, and wine. She even popped out a bottle of "bubbles" for our daughter and fiance who had just become engaged.
Stewart set us up with Taxi George to be our tour guide for Clan Lamont sites on Cowal, definitely the highlight of our time in Scotland.
Stewart also gave us a tour of the public rooms in the house and shared it's unique history.
Cowal is a beautiful area and we would love to return in summer to hike and kayak. Regardless of the time of year, Fatima and Stewart are great hosts and made us feel relaxed and welcome.
I highly recommend Knockdow House when your travels take you to western Scotland.

“Lovely apartment and great attention to detail.”
Reviewed 23 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed in the Tower apartment. This apartment was great with lots of character, but with all mod cons, including under floor heating in the bathrooms. The attention to details was superb, from booking , arrival to departing - we even had homemade shortbread and fresh cream cakes left for our arrival. The grounds of Knockdow are lovely (although we didn't get the opportunity to walk round due to rather inclement weather!). The Cowal Peninsula is has stunning views and scenery and we will certainly be returning at some point in the summer months.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I stayed here for three days. It is a beautiful place, though rather remote. The apartment provided was very well-appointed and the owners were very friendly. The authentic old manor and farm were very attractive and the grounds are beautiful for walking and exploring. If you're looking for peace and quiet, fresh air and natural surroundings, this would be a good choice.
