There's also a separate cloakroom and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a woodburning stove, along with a separate utility room. Outside, there is a pretty front garden with seating area, and a small unfenced stream running through it, whilst to the rear is a terraced garden. There's also ample off road parking for your whole party. The Old Sawmill provides friends and families with a welcoming base from which to enjoy this stunning area of Scotland.


Three P's, peaceful, perfect and private.
A Lovely cottage situated very close to Loch Sunart, a sea loch of outstanding natural beauty. An abundance of wildlife to view and the scenery is second to none. This was our second visit to the cottage within 12 months and that alone should tell you everything. Jane the owner was, as on our previous visit very friendly and welcoming. The property is impeccably clean and tidy, well furnished and with many home comforts. Lots of places to visit in this gem of a location. Resident Pine Marten always a treat to see. Beautifully maintained gardens too. Great place for a family or couple to stay. planning our next visit already. Highly recommended.

Home comfort in wild Scotland
We arrived in the dark and were met by Jane with an friendly warm welcome and well thought out goodie box. Jane gave us a tour of the cottage and shared her knowledge of the area (great start to our break). The cottage has everything you need and more for a very comfortable and cozy stay in rural Scotland. Internally the cottage has been very tastefully decorated, with lots of informative posters/notes of things to do and see. The kitchen/lounge area has all the mod cons you'll need during your holiday and still has plenty of space to stretch out in front of the log burner and warm up after a day exploring the peninsula. The 3 bedrooms are well presented and the beds very comfortable. Outside there is a nice lawn area that leads to a small stream, which the kids loved to play in and at the bottom of the drive, Loch Sunart is there to explore. For the dark skies lovers, on a clear night the stars are amazing and fill the sky. Remember to bring bread and jam for the Pine Martens. We had 2 visit every night. We have stayed in many cottage lets over the years and this was by far the best cottage we have stayed in. Thanks Jane.

The cottage surpassed our expectations and was the best equipped self catering cottage we've stayed in. The owners were fabulous. The peaceful and beautiful location of the cottage has to be seen to be believed! We would definitely recommend the cottage to other families with children.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Old Sawmill and both slept very well every night. The cottage is clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and we would definitely recommend a stay here.

The Old Sawmill was of a very high standard and it was set in a beautiful landscape. We loved it all.
