We had an excellent stay for our last few days of the old year and beginning of New Year. Lovely views, comfortable accommodation, fully equipped cottage, very much home from home. Ideal location for walking, history, wildlife and easy access to Oban. All instructions and booking stress free. Thank You for making it so enjoyable.
