everything very good-Kenny was very helpful and accommodating. likes the quietness of the state and the feeling you could just walk or cycle anywhere...
This is the first time we have stayed at Castle Cottage. We loved the location, so quiet and peaceful. We were lucky to see otters, sea eagles and a pine marten.
Fire Wood set beside the fireplace, warm house , great walking, amazing scenery. for a place to leave the world behind? this is it !!..
Ardtornish estate was a perfect place to stay . Thank you . Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla .
The cottage is absolutely beautiful. High spec throughout and quality everywhere. The locator is stunning. However, customer service is very poor. The WiFi password was incorrect in the book, there was no information on heating, using the fire etc. When we walked down to the Estate office regarding WiFi (which didn’t work all week) they were very unhelpful - rang BT only when really pushed, didn’t chase it up, had no idea who had the duty mobile phone, said that all the maintenance men were on holiday. There was a general lack of organisation. The cottage book also said we will call to check ...more
Our large group had a fantastic week staying in the South Wing and Billiard Room flats. We had several sunny days which made long walks and trips over to Mull unforgettable. We noticed a number of changes in the house, such as more and better kitchen equipment and more fridges; these made our stay more comfortable but without changing the essence of this lovely house. The staff in the Estate Office were helpful, as ever, We hope it will not be too long before we are all back.
This is a fabulous flat - it’s the third time we’ve stayed over a timespan of 15 years and we’ve loved it every time. The sheer scale of the place is wonderful and it’s a great base for outdoor activities, diving in our case, and great fun for a group stay. The drying room got very good use!
Achranich was perfect for our big family party. Lots of space, huge garden, in a beautiful setting, with friendly staff, and wonderful lichen as well.
We arrived soaked from a days cycling in driving rain on mull. The bunk house is simply amazing on all counts - warm, with a fire ready to light and very good cooking and washing facilities. We enjoyed playing a board game and slept extremely well - beds are comfy. This is a great place and we will try to come back
We loved the apartment and the stairs kept us fit. It felt like a home from home, eveything we needed and lovely walks and places to visit within a short drive. The apartment was spotless and the kitchen well equipped. We worked out how to control the taps to ensure we got hot showers. We will definitely come back to the Estate.The apartment is however not for someone who has any mobility issues unless the lift becomes operational.
Stayed two nights in wet weather. Bunkhouse was warm dry and clean. Only drawback is lack of drying facilities for wet gear.
Stayed in the Top Flat in Ardtornish House. Fascinating glimpse of how the rich must have taken their holidays in the Highlands in the big house but we were in the servants quarters which were much more homely. Nice kitchen/sitting room with all that we needed in it. Comfortable beds and spotless linen. Good size bath towels for the enormous bath and loads of hot water. A good time was had
If I am being really picky, we found the kitchen a bit out dated and cramped and the bath so small as to be impractical. There is an adequate en suite shower however. Brilliant for dogs, as, although there is no enclosed area outside, the track behind is seldom used so dogs can have free reign. The many walks are great. There is an excellent restaurant at Lochaline..The Whitehouse 3 miles away. We found the house just right for a couple although it can sleep 5.
Too reactive when really one expects the estate to be pro-active towards people staying. Having said that the web site is excellent and the people utterly delightful. We will definitely go again.
We had a lovely stay at Craigendarroch 1. The semidetached cottage is located up a long gravel road with views of Kinlochaline Castle in the distance. It feels very private and was exceptionally well equipped Easy access to the Isle of Mull and we spend two days exploring the Isle. Would highly recommend the cottages on the Ardtornish Estate. Be sure to give your self at least a day to explore the surrounding area if not more. If we had a minor gripe it would be the internet connection speed was very slow via BT, not something the estate can change. 4G mobile connection was available....more
We booked this accommodation as part of the our daughter’s wedding package. All our guests had nothing but the highest praise for all the accommodations. Words used to describe the cottages were cosy, inviting, clean and comfortable, many with breathtaking views. The apartments in the house were absolutely fabulous. They were filled with Victorian charm and grandeur but at the same time were inviting and comfortable, we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Everyone had one of the most memorable and enjoyable weekends ever, from the beautiful walks on the estate to the sumptuous wedding fes...more
This was a lovely place to stay. The bunkhouse was good value and I would stay again. Mobile and wireless reception wasn't great though but that may not be a bad thing.
For those who want to experience an authentic Scottish Estate cottage in a fabulous location, Castle Cottage is for you. From the glossy Robin's breast red front door, charming carved barge boards, low sloping eaves, and original glazing (complete with flaws, bubbles, and imperfections) to the symmetrical design and charming roof overhangs. It's a real gem. The Morso stove is a real feature. It both kicks out some heat and adds a cosy atmosphere on cooler Autumn evenings. But then, there's the location: Wow! I doubt it can be beaten. The cottage sits right on the edge of the loch where you ca...more
