Our first holiday without electricity, and it was everything we hoped for. A total switch off from the outside world and have to say we have never slept better. The stove, fireplace in the bedroom and the candlelight made it so cosy and relaxing. The only noise was from the waterfall. Lovely to see deer, bats and red squirrels from the cottage. The conservatory was a delight to get away from the midges and has nice views over to Bute. The grounds are well kept and easy to walk around, offering different places to sit and take in the scenery. Hope to return again.
We absolutely love it here. This is our fourth time. The views are stunning, this year we saw quite a few deer, we had a pair of pheasants visit the cottage and a red squirrel came daily to the bird table - well worth investing in some nuts! The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could need. No electricity and no phone signal is bliss for the week. Our dogs and boys mucked about in the burn almost every day. There are superb walks nearby. Ostel beach is beautiful, definitely one to visit. We're booked up again for next year.
We had a wonderful week. The cosy cottage and its setting are both perfect. There is wildlife from the cottage window and walks from the door. There are boats to watch including the Waverley, and convenient shops in Tighnabruaich and Kames.
Me and my three children came here last summer. The kids haven't stopped speaking about it since.
A beautiful cottage in a stunning setting. Peter, the owner was very helpful and friendly.
getting away from technology was Bliss
We were stunned by the beautiful scenery on driving from the ferry terminal.
The views are alpine like.....words cannot describe how breathtaking the vista is.
On the drive to Tighnabruaich we were stunned by the unspolit beauty and sheer magnitude of the mountains.
Hill Cottage is a true gem.....set in the most remarkable spot on the mountain.....we were not expecting just how wonderfully peaceful and idyllic it is.
Peter is very genial and helpful and his concern for our safe arrival and comfort was touching.
On arrival the stove was lit, wood for this and the bedroom fire was in abundance.
The cottage was very clean, cosy and all equipped for a comfortable and romantic break.
Lovely of an evening to eat by candlelight with a nice glass of wine that was waiting for us on arrival.
Equally lovely was eating breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the loch.
We have fallen in love with Hill Cottage, Tighnabruaich and the surrounding area.
The waterfalls surrounding the place are magical.....we really didn't want to leave.
We loved it so much that we have booked for 2 weeks for our holiday this year.
This is a wonderful, truly remote cottage which gives a genuine rustic experience. It's so peaceful and a real 'get away from it all' place. The landscape and views are spectacular and if it is too chilly to sit outside, there is a fabulous little conservatory to view the scenery. The land the cottage is set within is great to explore and it's just awesome to have a mountain stream with waterfalls in such close proximity.
You can take walks straight from the cottage door or explore further afield by car. The weather changed frequently while I was there which is all part of the adventure but I was glad I had taken warm and waterproof clothes for all conditions!
The wood burning stove provides heat and hot water and the fire in the main bedroom also provides additional heat if needed. The candle lanterns are a great experience instead of electric lights!
The owner has put a lot of thought and care into the cottage and has provided all the equipment and instructions you need for staying in such a unique place as well as suggestions of what to do and see in the area. He clearly loves the cottage and wants his guests to have the best experience.
If you want a remote and rustic experience, I would highly recommend this fabulous cottage !
