Our family are regulars to Scotland and we always have to include a few days stay at Melfort Pier and Harbour. It is truly the most idyllic location, away from all the pressures of the 'Rat Race' , good for the soul and a great place to recharge one's batteries.
The development is quietly tucked away at the end of a scenic lane just outside of the village of Kilmelford. Immediately on arriving the staff are always warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We and our two girls loved eating in the on site restaurant, The Mermaid, and it undoubtedly has the best views of all the restaurants in the area being situated right on the shoreline of Loch Melfort with stunning views across the Melfort sound.
We have stayed in different houses each time we have been and each time they have been very clean and tidy, well equipped and cosy.
The walks around the loch and up onto the hills around are wonderful. The views from the top are amazing if you have the stamina! If you are not that keen on walking, you can cheat and take the car up to the most wonderful high lochs and views by following the single track road up which is alongside Kilmelford Stores in the village - take a picnic and enjoy:-)
This is a magical and spectacular place 'away from it all' and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who made our stays relaxing and memorable . A little piece of heaven!
