Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Idyllic location and an outstanding house
This return visit to the OFH was even better than the first. The well-equipped, comfortable cottage with its historic features has one of the best views I've seen in a lifetime of global travel. And it's a five minute walk from the award-winning restaurant at the Pier House Hotel.

Now even better
I'm not normally given to using reviews but we have enjoyed staying here several times over the years. Doug has recently made some sympathetic improvements and the cottage is a more comfortable place to stay whilst retaining the wonderful character of the building. The highlight of course remains the sun room and garden where the loch laps at your feet and you can enjoy most stunning views over Lismore and Morvern.

Unbeatable view and location
Beautiful secluded cosy cottage on the shores of Loch Creran overlooking Loch Creran. Warm in the early spring with the wood burner and milder West Coast weather. The friendly community shop is nearby along with the Pierhouse for great morning coffees, bar meals and seafood. No need to stir far if you don’t feel like it as you can walk, cycle (or swim) with lots of amazing routes. Highly recommended.

A charming cosy cottage on the shore in a delightful village
Port Appin is a delightful hamlet on the sea loch Loch Linnhe. There is an excellent village shop and a very good sea food restaurant.

A wonderful peaceful holiday destination steeped in local history and a great base for walking cycling and bird watching
