“Lovely house, beautiful location - we loved it!”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We visited Bothan Darach in June 2016 and fell in love with Port Appin and the cottage. The property was perfect for 8 people - enough living space and bathrooms. And it was very well equipped. We couldn't have hoped for more!

The owners were very helpfull and made adjustments for us.

Port Appin is picturesque and the location of the cottage is great: peaceful, beautiful and just a stone away from a small shop and a couple of restaurants.

We loved everything about our stay and hope to come back one day! :)

“Great house and very well equipped”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Travelled with my wife and 3 teenage daughters. We all found the house to be perfect for our needs. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped, with everything you could think of. Dennis was very easy to deal with and the welcome hamper was a bonus!

“Wonderful comfy cottage”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We can highly recommend this cottage. Beautifully appointed, every need catered for.
My husband is disabled and were delighted there was a bedroom down stairs with ensuite facilities and easy access to the house via a ramp at the back door. The views from the upstairs lounge are stunning. Watching the sunset and then the bright stars at night , magical.

“Comfy and well-equipped house!”
Reviewed 2 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed here for new year 2016. Brilliant house with lots of space for all the family. Very well equipped, the owners have thought of everything! Port Appin is a lovely village with lots of places to walk the dogs, very picturesque and peaceful. Would definitely recommend Bothan Darach.

Thank you Eve. We've tried to supply items that we often needed when we stayed in self catering, when our children were young.
You're welcome back anytime!

“Lovely cottage, great location”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

One of the nicest and best equipped cottages we've ever stayed in!
A great location for exploring the area including Glencoe, Oban and Fort William with incredible views of the loch from the upstairs lounge and the welcome hamper was a great touch.
Easy walk into the village for a well stocked shop, restaurant and fishing.
We would definitely visit again and have already recommended to friends and family.

“What a lovely place to stay.”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This cottage was beautiful. The owners catered for every need. There were even babies dummies ect left. We used the rucksacks and flasks, we couldn't believe the equipment left for use to make our holiday so enjoyable. None of us wanted to come home as our stay was so lovely. We wished we could of met the owners to thank them personally but we did leave them a gift from Cornwall. We have never stayed in such lovely accommodation.
