Ardmaddy Estate sits in a quiet, gentle corner of Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. Whilst within half an hour of the harbour town of Oban and only three hours from Glasgow, once there, you feel as though you are in a different time and space to the rest of the world.
Its quiet tranquility and the utter peace soothes the soul and rest the senses. Its open spaces and magnificent views free the mind. Surrounded by woodland, hills, moors and the sea, Ardmaddy is also a haven for wildlife – from eagles soaring above the hills, to skylarks singing their hearts out and from deer grazing on the hillsides to otters hunting by the shore – there is so much here for you to see and experience.

Disliked · Asked us to pay £250 deposit 5 days before arrival although this was not mentioned during booking the property. Had to pay it as the holiday was already planned. We were told that this is taken as a security deposit to cover the cost for damage to the property. Deducted £30 as all the dishes were not taken out of dish washer and put back in the cupboard. The remaining deposit was refunded after 3 weeks following multiple phone calls and email reminders. Be prepared to part with your deposit if you are staying here.
My friend and I stayed in The Stables for a week from the 27th of September, and we were both delighted with everything about it ... from the friendly welcome by Jan (and the much-appreciated shortbread biscuits) to the day we (sorrowfully) left, we loved it all. The cottage is in such a beautiful location that we spent most of our time there and only ventured out to restock groceries, buy a ferry ticket, enjoy a day-trip to Mull and briefly explore Seil. Apart from that we were happy to relax, watch the changing light on the bay, explore the estate and generally disconnect from the real world...more
My family and I stayed at forest cottage over Christmas and had a lovely holiday. There were pleanty of walks from the doorstep, great for the dogs who were able to roam in the garden without any worry of them getting out. There was a pub 9 mins drive away and oban wasnt too far. Would reccomend to anyone who enjoys walking and beautiful scenery.
