“Perfect Place to Chill Out!!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Sloy cabin (myself, hubby and 3 kids ages 16, 12 & 8 not forgetting Holly the dog). We all had the most marvellous time and have returned home so chilled out and envious of who has the pleasure of the wonderful views this weekend. The weather was kind to us and we managed to have breakfast on the balcony each morning with the mirror like loch awe it was brill. Holly didn't like the cheeky ducks who came to visit but quickly chased them back to the loch. The hot tub was put to good use and we were in it every day/night. It took 2.5 bags of logs to bring the water up to temperature on the first night but after that the water quickly heats up the next day. We had forgotten matches but the housekeeper Irene was most helpful and gave us a lighter. We also liked the fact we could have a fire and there was a grill we put on it and cooked sausages. The cabin itself is very cosy and we didn't even need our onesies it was so warm. It was good that we had our own piece of water front and the boys loved fishing from here. The cabin has satellite TV but we never watched it as loved being outside more. We went the 5 mile walk to loch Avich (yellow route) this had even more great views when we returned we chilled in the hot tub. I would highly recommend this cabin it is well equipped and the views were they have to be seen to be believed.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Upon arrival we were greeted by Irene, lovely lady who will do all she can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Upon arriving at the cabin we unpacked and relaxed, it is such a cozy place and so well equipped with everything you need.
We even bought cleaning products that were not needed in the end, so we left them for the next visitors.
We flew to scotland from the south and the journey from Glasgow airport was very scenic, the views were truly incredible, with snow on route through the highlands!
We didn't really do that much in regards to going out and about as we were away to relax with a few walks here and there.
However we did go into Oban which is a nice town (with a large Tesco's if you need shopping) and walked up to McCaig's tower which was a nice find.
I dont think we used the hot tub to its full potential as we had to buy more logs and only got in once (we didnt stir and therefore was very cold at the bottom)! Although I can imagine this would be amazing in the summer.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return in a flash! To put the icing on the cake we also got engaged here so it will always be remembered!
Thankyou for an amazing stay!
p.s. the only thing I would say is remember towels! I didn't and therefore went into Oban to buy them and then squeeze into our hand luggage on return!

“Fantastic Holiday Cabin”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Sloy Cabin is clean, cosy and in the perfect spot - It's right on the shore of the loch so the view is beautiful. There are lots of lovely walks nearby and so much wildlife. It's also really well equipped which meant cooking delicious meals wasn't a problem - and having the hot tub there was the icing on the cake! The weather wasn't great but it didn't matter, it was a perfect holiday. We would recommend it to anyone who wants to escape from their busy lives and we definitely hope to make it back again one day.

Thank you for your kind review. Loch Awe is a truly magical place and the wildlife is second to none in the UK in our view. Please come again in the Spring when Ospreys, Sea Eagles and Red squirrels are regularly seen.

“Perfect Family holiday!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

We booked this cabin for our first family holiday with our baby daughter and we loved it. There was nothing better than waking up and opening the curtains to the beautiful view over the loch. The cabin beds in the second bedroom are fab and we intend to come back so our daughter can enjoy them. Only issue we had was the bedding was a bit got at and there were a few stains on the sofa but that could be my over active new mum gene. All in all the cabin was perfect for us and though we went in November we still used the hot tub and it was gorgeous!!! We definitely will be going back

“Great long weekend.”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Had a great stay in Sloy Cabin and would recomend this cabin to everyone. It is very well appointed and the view and area are really outstanding. The weather was great but don't think we would have minded having to stay in for the rain as there was lots of games for the kids and a few DVD's but we didn't need either. We all want to go back but for longer next time.

“Great cabin in amazing location by loch”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Cabin was cosy, rustic and well equipped. The location is out of this world, with great views of Loch Awe and mountains behind. Loads of wildlife to watch and loads of great walks and cycling tracks near by. Hired bikes for a couple of days, which were excellent quality and explored loch by hire boat.

Will be back soon.
