Lovely stay
Just got back from the harbour house today after a lovely weeks stay. The house is amazing and very big. Having the downstairs bathroom and bedroom is very handy. On arrival there was a yummy chocolate cake left out for us which went down a treat :) plus a selection of jams and tea and coffee. The only thing I felt was missing were cooking trays, oven gloves and a frying pan. The washer was an added bonus but drying the clothes took forever maybe the house would benefit from having a dryer. All in all we had a fab 1st stay here. This is a lovely well looked after house in a nice peaceful area. We will definitely book again. Thank you

Wonderful! Highly recommended!
The first thing about this place is the incredible location, right on the peaceful harbourside. Parking is on the road outside and there was never a problem finding a space right beside the house. The care and attention to every detail made this home a true pleasure to stay in. Every cooking utensil, bowl or teacosy you could think of was in one of the cupboards in the stylish kitchen! Fresh flowers and cake made this feel like you were visiting some loved one who had been dying to see you! All the mod cons are here, with a wide screen tv with a picture my husband was envious of, and good Wi-Fi, especially for a rural location. The garden was a special pleasure during our stay. Our older parents were with us for this holiday, and we were blessed with some beautiful Scottish sunshine, so they went to the suntrap at the top of the garden. Well, I can hardly give justice to the dazzling assortment of butterflies and bees who gave us hours of enjoyment watching them. There were so many and they were so interesting to watch about their business, it has inspired me to find more butterfly and bee friendly plants for my own garden. I would suggest to the owners to post some more recent photos, as the current ones just don't show the gorgeous array of plants and bushes. This is perfect for peace and tranquillity, listening to the sea, or actually soaking Up the total quiet. I found it took me a day or two to 'get it', and then just loved the feeling of relaxation for the first time in ages. A few good spots we visited: The ruins of st ninians church at the top of the harbour, especially the cairn where visitors have placed stones in memory of loved people or pets The Steampacket, which is just a few doors down. Good pub grub, friendly service and local folk are happy to blether away with you over a drink. The Clansman, restaurant in Port William, short drive away. Great 'old favourite' foods served generous portions, piping hot and full of flavour. Do not leave before eating the sticky toffee pudding. OMG Harbour House, so highly recommended. Ideal for young families, walkers, explorers, older adult groups who want that incredible relaxation. Amazing.

Fantastic holiday rental
A wonderful house that's more like a home, this glorious 3 bedroom property is nicely finished and has all the comforts of home. Sited on the quay side with a great view of the harbour. The steampacket Inn is within walking distance. There was a lovely welcome pack on arrival with a home made chocolate cake. We would be happy to return.

We loved the high levels of comfort in the cottage. The location overlooking the small harbour is perfect. The countryside is great.

The cottage was lovely and homely and in a great location. It was very clean and well equipped. A great base for exploring the area.
