Birch cottage is just as described with comfortable accommodation and fabulous views over Loch Long. The owners are very friendly and helpful and we had a wonderful week at Stronchullin. We only used the ground floor as there was just two of us.
We been for work in Dunoon. The property was like home from home. The Owner was very kind and helpful. The house is well equipped with all you need for a short break.
We have had a marvellous time at The Kenmore the house is amazing and has everything you need . It is immaculate inside and the location is amazing we will be back again .
Second time we have stayed . We are a party of two adults and two teenagers and attend the Cowal gathering. This cottage is perfect for us and we are booked for same time next year.
Had a super week in excellent well equipped cottage . Track down to cottage bumpy but well worth it if you want seclusion in a location with lots of great scenery and places to eat
I absolutely loved Gate Cottage!! We stayed there for two weeks while touring the islands and West Coast if Scotland. The cottage is incredibly stylishly decorated and has everything you could ever need in the kitchen. We also had family staying with us and everyone loved it!! There is a lovely hotel within 5 minutes walk, which serves up great food and drinks. The setting is ideal with astonishing scenery. There is nothing I can fault and I’ll definitely be back.
this was a really well maintained and well finished place, although attached to a working farm, not in any way noisy and no farm smells. proximity to Benmore Botanic gardens was brilliant with wildlife everywhere you look, Red Squirrel, Red Deer , birdlife,etc. the only downside for us was that we only booked a week and had to go home on Saturday.
Comfortable, very clean and compact accommodation, ideal for a short break. Lovely location with welcoming hosts who go that bit extra to make you feel like valued guests and ensure all your needs are met.
Beautiful cottage in perfect location for exploring Argyll. It is well equipped with everything that is needed for a comfortable self catering holiday
Lovely villa, everything we needed for our recent stay and the hot tub was an added bonus! We would definitely recommend!
We had a great stay for 24 days. House was well equipped with everything you needed, and had a lovely view. The beds were comfortable and the 2 main bedrooms were spacious. The 3rd bedroom was quirky. House was lovely and warm with the storage heaters and even had to switch them off at times.There is a nice wee garden at the front of the house with a BBQ.Owners contacted us when we booked and introduced themselves which was lovely and all instructions were received before we traveled. Never quite worked out how to work the washing machine so instructions would have been handy. Only negatives ...more
Kyles View is a lovely flat in a very peaceful location. The flat is spacious, very well-equipped, comfortable, and spotlessly clean, with beautiful views from all windows and a very pleasant rear garden. The wifi, heating, electrical equipment etc. all worked very well, and the kitchen is well-stocked with pots and pans, dishes etc.; the seating and beds were very comfortable; in short, we had everything we needed for a really enjoyable holiday. There are excellent walks in the immediate area and nearby. Kames has a very good, well-stocked grocery shop, as does Tighnabruaich, and there are pl...more
Great home with wonderful views on the loch, particularly from the upstairs seating arrangement and balcony. A spacious kitchen and large dinning area was ideal for family. There are a couple of pubs about 200 minutes walk away, but remember to take a torch as there is no street lighting for the majority of the pavement. Only slight negative is the pool table was on the slope with small holes in the cloth and just one cue which didn't have a tip.
We stayed at Craignethan for three nights in November. The property was beautifully furnished and maintained, and very well equipped. It was warm and comfortable and every creature comfort was provided. The location and views were exceptional. Highly recommend and would love to return.
Very nicely and tastefully renovated old stable building in beautiful surrounding. The house is perfectly equipped and the landlords were very friendly and helpful!
Lovely stay at the property. Clean, bright and modern on the inside. Beautiful views of the loch. Highly recommended.
Fantastic location, beautiful views. Excellent accommodation. Thank you Eileen and to Ian at Argyll self catering holidays.
Cosy cottage in lovely, peaceful location. Well equipped. Ideal for lots of lovely walks and day trips.
An idyllic setting, truly away from it all. We enjoyed being in such a beautiful place and the weather was mostly kind to us. Amazing to have the beach so close. Enjoyed meals at the Oystercatcher and explored a little further afield too. All was as advertised.
We had a superb stay at Shelbourne Lodge. It was well-appointed and just the right size and facility-wise (bathrooms, dining room, lounge, kitchen) to accommodate a family of 8. The location on the canal was lovely. Loved the fact that it was an older building with a history - even an album of old photos to prove it. Lovely private garden - and some of the best pillows encountered on my travels.
This was our fourth visit to The Waterside Villa and as usual it didn't disappoint! We are already looking into booking for next year so really that says it all. Many thanks for a great stay xxx
Extremely warm welcome by delightful owners, Hans and Helga. Cottage was very comfortable with its own enclosed garden (suitable for dog) overlooking the main gardens which are absolutely beautiful. Very much enjoyed my stay especially sitting down by the shore watching the beautiful sunsets.
This cottage is very central to Inveraray and is just a short walk into the town! The cottage was spotless and very cozy, and it was also very welcoming
We felt at home as soon as we arrived, very comfortable and with all the facilities and equipment we could possibly need. Wonderful ever changing views from the lounge. Slightly disappointed with the higher level and noise of traffic along a single track road than we expected.
Well located this house had everything we needed for our weekend. Easy access to everywhere for my disabled son . Only downside was the small fridge (a Fridge/freezer would be better) apart from that everything was perfect. Will definitely be back .
centrally located for our stay ,lovely ,clean accommodation with great views. would stay here again .
Beautiful location, lovely cottage; thoroughly enjoyed our holiday (34 more characters? What else can I say?)
We enjoyed the stay very much. The surroundingd where beautiful and the cottage very clean and cousy!
We had an amazing time here, the lodge was beautiful and clean, the views were stunning, all the family loved it and want to book again.
Home from home. Fiona (the owner) cannot do enough for you. Basic essentials bread, butter, milk, orange juice and not to forget the wine all in the fridge awaiting your arrival. Fiona even lifted us to the Games Field on the Saturday morning which was much appreciated.
It's a perfect location and very special house and this is our third stay. We arrived in the cold and dark and were disappointed not to find any firewood left for us (my son had been looking forward to that) ... but the house soon heated up via central heating and we were warm. The beds and facilities are great. There could be extra towels left for guests, but the quality is lovely. The rooms are beautiful and the views brilliant. Drinking coffee in the morning on the steps, looking at the water is one of life's special moments. The sunsets in the same place with a glass of wine are equally wo...more
As said in the title. Bits are bit tired but everything functions and the cost is reasonable. The parking access is tight but do-able with care. Good having the pub nearby but it’s quiet off season. We were fortunate enough to be there for the Village Hall Halloween party which was a great success.
we just love this place and Tristan was super flexible and helpful with us as regular visitors - we hired all three lodges. we'll be back next year and probably forever more...
It took me a while to get the shower running at the right temperature on almost every day. I am 78. I almost gave up to start with. There is no info and it might not have helped anyway. I never did have a bath. The TV programmes were very few, fewer even than my own. The lighting was very poor. We are writers (historian, scholar, novelist) and ardent readers and reading was difficult. The bedside lights were totally inadequate. Those in the lounge were not much better, no matter what we tried. The carpets near the walls were not very clean but generally, I thought it was OK. The house design w...more
The apartment is part of a new build near the waterfront, and also close to the shopping streets. It was warm and comfortable, with plenty of facilities and equipment.
We really enjoyed our stay at Ash Lodge! Very clean, cosy and quick responses from the owners. It was great value for money. The surrounding area is absolutely beautiful! And we enjoyed a great dinner at the Whistleford pub just up the road. Highly recommended and thanks for our stay. To be aware, it's not completely secluded, with similar lodges neighbouring but it's at the bottom so you don't look out onto anyone.
Relaxing, cozy, inviting, comfortable, clean and well taken care of. The location is beautiful. overlooking a loch. Lots of wildlife to watch, including red squirrels at the back of the cottage. There is a great little local shop about 6 miles away (turn right out of the drive) that stocks just about everything you need and more. Also it's a lovely drive to get to it. To really appreciate the location of Teal cottage you need to get out and walk. It's like your in another world, just spectacular. The cottage has more than everything you would ever need, including a set of binoculars, which ...more
Lovely view. Nice ocean decor. Pleasant back yard. Beautiful walks up the back to the quiet woods. Thoroughly enjoyed Inveraray and area. Traffic noise.
We had a lovely time in Kames. The location of the appartment is amazing - beautiful views! Everything was mostly fine except for the bedroom which we found really cramped (bed against the wall and having to climb over partner to get in and out) and uncomfortable. Also, we thought the whole flat could do with a good scrub as we found hairs etc in the bathroom and in the bed when we removed the sheets we had used at the end of our stay. We wouldn't recommend until these problems were addressed.
This is my second stay at Cedar Cottage and it was excellent. The cottage is very quiet and peaceful ,an excellent getaway from the city. Cottage is well equipped, beds very comfortable ,spotlessly clean,has enclosed garden which is great for dog. I would highly recommend and would definitely return
We had a glorious week in Dunoon , wonderful autumn sunshine and lots of places to visit and enjoy. The apartment was very comfortable and spacious within easy walking of the town, an ideal location! I can certainly highly recommend it!
Shame about the weather and the midges, but that's the west coast of Scotland! That aside, An Cala is a well-equipped and very comfortable base to enjoy the beautiful area or just to relax in a beautiful setting. Am torn between giving the property the review it deserves, and scaring everyone else away so it's available when we want to go back!
Very nice upper floor apartment with great view over wonderful Kyles of Bute. Great location in village of Kames, close to local amenities (well-stocked general store with helpful, friendly proprietor; pleasant waterfront not far below, local hotels, golf course and 10 mins from Portavadie spa resort). When there was small problem with electrical supply, owner and local contractor were extremely quick to tackle issue - both were very friendly and helpful. Comfortable stay (only lounge sofa bed was not the best, but were perfectly adequate). Altogether a very pleasant stay. Will certainly retur...more
A very nice flat, with beautiful views across to Bute. It is spacious and provided all we needed. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the bedding and towels. The bed was really comfortable. We arrived on a cold October evening, and the property was cold, but we were soon cosy and warm with the very efficient convector heaters. There is also a log burner which was lovely. The toilet at the back had the most impressive view, but had no form of heating, which would have improved it. It is placed very conveniently to all the local services, shops, cafes and pubs. There are also love...more
wee have stayed there the past three years and cannot fault it very peaceful great value spoke to owner nothing a problem to her very nice,would recommend it to people wanting a good place to stay out the way of everything great location could not fault it.
Myrtle bank villa, is spacious. Very well thought out for families, jigsaw puzzles, games, books, etc. We love staying there, as it is so welcoming and comfortable. It's lovely to sit and have breakfast overlooking the loch. If we went to Dunoon again, this is where we would stay. Tge only drawback is one of the beds has changed since our last visit, not very comfortable to sleep in, as it bows in the middle. Apart from that we would still stay again.
what a wonderful cottage was spotless clean and every thing about it was lovely had 2 nights here with relatives from overseas . quiet wee village full of history.
Very clean everything you could ever need , extremely comfortable bed, easy to use cooker didn't watch much telly as we were happier looking out of the patio doors over the loch watching the fish jumping, the deer grazing and the buzzards soaring. Easy drive to Kames were the village store seems to have everything, short drive to Portavadie then 20 min ferry to Tarbert for a look round the shops. In all a excellent base to explore the area or just sit listen watch and relax . Would recommend this property for a wonderfull relaxing break we will be back !
We spotted this cottage when walking along the beach last year and were delighted to see it on a booking website this year . It is in a perfect spot on the beach and nearby places to eat /drink/shop as well as a lovely walk away from the outdoor heated pool and hot tubs at Portavadie . Great outdoor seating area with stunning views and inside was very cosy with everything needed including decent WiFi.
Stayed at Kintore with a supported holiday, lovely apartment with fabulous views and well equipped too, would highly recommend. Innellan is a nice wee community and it was our pleasure to provide some extra business to the local quaint shop and nice little hotel/bar, called the Osborne. Argyll Self Catering Holidays were very helpful and owner of Kintore too. Many thanks.
This is a house in a nice seafront location, handy for everything in Dunoon and surrounding villages. The host was very helpful and accommodating. Only negative is that the house does need quite a bit of attention as there are many things which don't work or are in poor condition which is a but frustrating because otherwise it would be tremendous.
Me and my partner staid in the coastal lodge in kames and were shocked to find how lovely the building was and the location. It was a quiet and peaceful place so just what we needed. Just like home in snowdonia but a different experience all round. We will most definitely be coming back for a week next time. Two days was not enough for us. C w Jones.
Lovely quiet location overlooking boatyard and coast of Bute, view is ever changing with clouds, light and boats. Well appointed inside and out (though weather can be poor). Our third stay at Alderside and may well come back again.
This was our second stay at Springwell, the view gets better and the shower is the best. The owners could not be more helpful.
You can't beat the veiw from the front bedroom every morning! Place was clean and tidy, a few minor housekeeping issues that need attention and should be kept ontop of. Overall the house is great for a large family. Hot tub great especially when the weather is bad, great location for shops beach and walks.
Lovely restful break. The only noise being the stream at the front of the cottages. Small cottages, each with its own garden.
What a lovely cottage! Val gave us a warm welcome, and showed us around Springburn Cottage, including the children's playroom. This is a very pretty location in Argyll with local facilities to suit everyday needs - and the quiet to enjoy it. The kitchen is well suited to self-catering, although there are plenty of local eating spots. The large bedrooms allowed a good night's sleep on comfy beds. We didn't need to use the washing machine and tumble drier, but for a longer stay (or for walkers in poor weather) this would be a boon. This was our second holiday in Strachur, and I am sure we will b...more
I would ask in future for a modern,easy cleaned and safe high chair. Otherwise what an amazing location, and fantastic views.
We enjoyed staying there both times (first with family and secondly with friends) Just two concerns are expressed 1) stone steps (going to upper level) results in a situation of half-a-step passing the bathroom door. Second half of step is on a "next-step-up" situation - for those who are older and or younger children (our grandchild was 4yrs old) can be a potential concern and since there is no handrail between bathroom and final steps to bedroom (due to a cupboard) is of potential concern - we left the bathroom light on all night with door open to ease concern 2) The mattress down s...more
We have been to this lodge for a few years now. There have been improvements made every year to this lodge too. I enjoy the peace and quiet then going up for the entertainment with my grandchildren at night time
Beautiful location, the cottage is in gorgeous setting. Could easily be 5 star however when we arrived the kitchen worktops had crumbs under toaster and things . The unit doors were dirty from food and needed cleaned. The table cloth was dirty. Dado rail in hall was covered in dust. The worst part was bedrooms are downstairs and the smell of damp was at times wafting up the hall , it was so off putting to sleep in. On the plus the bathroom was beautiful and clean. It just needs deep clean. It was disappointing and did affect how comfortable we felt. The owner was made aware but brushed it off...more
Great cottage and facilities close to lots of great walks, perfect for getting away from it all to relax with great views.
Take plenty of logs or buy them from the Jet Garage down the road as the one storage heater in the living area doesn’t provide enough heat to sufficiently heat this area. Even with the log fire going it was still a bit chilly over the Christmas period that I ended up putting the oven on and leaving the door open to heat the open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area.
Lovely stay .Very comfy ,specious lodge . Excellent location . Lodge has everything what we need and much more . Amaizing view through the window . Thanks Diane
Lovely views, close to Dunoon, regular bus service from site, easy access to Clyde ferry. Very comfortable accommodation.
We had a short stay here recently - but the tranquility and peace of the cottage made it a very refreshing break! The views of the top of the Loch ( especially from upstairs) are gorgeous and it is fantastic to stop and listen to the silence, only broken by the occasional Oystercatcher. At night you can hear owls calling to each other and see the stars. It's not totally remote, but in fact is situated on the roadside in a great position where you can head off in different directions to explore different parts of Argyll. The cottage is warm and comfortable - it has enough things that you need...more
Yealand is in a great location but its a bit tired and old fashioned. Too many ornaments and personal items for a holiday home. Enjoyed the table tennis and darts. The views from the house are wonderful. Shame the garden furniture is so uncomfortable. The house is fine for a weekend but a longer stay could be pushing it. There is absolutely no mobile service so makes it difficult if there are any problems. On the plus side having no signal gives you the chance to switch off and relax.
On our arrival at Craigmichael Cottage it was as pretty as the pictures we had seen and its proximity to the pretty coastline of Inellan, even closer than we imagined. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped and the bottle of wine and shortbread biscuits , a lovely touch to welcome us! A good base from which to visit the beautiful places in the nearby vicinity. 'Pucks Glen' and 'Toward Castle' to name just two. A great place to walk our high energy border collie and to see the Seals, Mergansers and Eider ducks among many other wildfowl Only want to mention that the garden, whic...more
We enjoyed our stay in Cladh-a-Mhuillin lodge. The location is good not too far from some lovely scenic places to visit such as Kilbride Bay, Loch Fyne and the Kyle of Bute. You will need a car to go most places. It is an hours walk to the beach, and 40 minutes over the hill to Kames. There are some good eating places nearby (by car) and a good small shop in Kames. The lodge is small and the living room a bit cramped. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. It was cold when we stayed and we needed to use the electric heaters provided to keep warm. The house was very nicely...more
The appartement is old but authentic and therefor ok. The surroundings are beautiful and the gardens are splendid. The Gruffalo Trail and the houses of the Elves were magical for the kids and as it was raining -duh- it was handy that we could do these trails in 'our own back yard'...Inveraray (with a supermarket) is nearby and the loch offers beautiful views. Our children watched 'Waterhorse' of course and were constantly yelling:'That's our castle, I walked on that grass...' Nice!
Property is very well equipped, everything is there with some nice additional features such as reclining seats, huge with equally huge TV etc, lovely modern bathrooms upstairs (not downstairs). But we started on the back foot which could so easily be changed. The exterior of the property is sad and unkempt. Plenty cobwebs greeted us and a rusty radiator in the first room I went into (downstairs bathroom). Given that it is not a lochside location but is "in-land" in a small residential development of similar properties that left us starting off fearing the worst. But The Ranch grew on us....more
Lovely lodge in stunning area, very well equipped and all the comforts of home. Ideal base for exploring the area. Red squirrels and deer in the area
Having a sore ankle,the steps were were not easy on coming down. A light was very much needed to get at the key. The bath could do with a non slip mat or rubber discs. The place soon warmed, with the heating on for about an hour.
Great location to stay and see the town of Dunoon. Just two min from see. Very close to sports activities centre which we used, Morrison, restaurants,Nice and clean apartment.Feels like at home. Thank for the opportunity we had.
The cottage is great, but unfortunately not clean enough to make one really comfortable. Also on the day we arrived the boiler did not work so we had no heating or hot water to shower. Also there was a problem with the drain in one of the showers. The house is nice, location is good but could be much better if it was cleaner.
We had a wonderful time at the Boat House, cosy with the fireplace, beautiful view (even otters came along) and quiet. We got flowers and herbs from Richard from the garden and also tried some vegetables. :-) Just to be helpfull the following: Some things can be a bit better. The wood for the stove should be a little smaller fore the Boat House or an ax would be helpfull. The kitchen is a bit outdated but still functional. The outside of the house could use a little paint. The windows need to be cleaned at the inside to have an even better view ;-).
No separate toilet contrary to the description. The dinner table was wobbly. We had to screw it back. The WiFi is really poor. The kitchen drawers & the kitchen hood were dirty. Not enough dishes. No replacement for the toaster when it broke down. But lovely situation near the loch & nice welcoming basket
The cottage was quirky, but in need of a make-over. The kitchen needs a deep clean. Because of its location I might recommend it to others.
