Well-stocked bookcases, a vintage vinyl collection and a rainy day drawer for children add to the interest of a stay at Coillabus. Guests can enjoy putting their culinary skills to the test in the well-equipped kitchen diner. Coillabus has plenty corners to hide away with a good book from the well-stocked bookcase. A Jacques croquet set is available for some terrifying games of Coillabus Croquet over challenging terrain! Dine al fresco on the pebble terrace with long views over Kintyre and Ireland in summer - or enjoy the full canopy of...Coillabus Cottage is a well equipped and comfortable traditional West Highland cottage set in the heart of a working hill farm.

Thanks for taking time to write such a thoughtful and appreciative review. I hope you'll come back and stay another time - and perhaps you could bring some New Zealand sunshine with you! It was a pleasure to have you stay in the cottage.
