Lovely cosy accommodation in spectacular area
The location is absolutely lovely. Overlooking a beautiful, calm bay, on what felt like an exclusive little peninsula, you can enjoy glorious early morning sunshine, stunning sunsets across the islands, and awesome night skies, together with lots of local wildlife (all if you're lucky!). We were thrilled to see an otter one morning while we were kayaking, as well as many species of seabirds and the ubiquitous heron. There's a nice pub within easy walking distance (5-7 mins), and a useful little shop for essentials. There are some lovely walks from the doorstep and a little further afield, and a wildlife-spotting boat trip from the marina is a must. A great place to stay and enjoy the natural world. The accommodation is comfortable and well-equipped, and the hosts very helpful without being intrusive.

Super cute hideaway with amazing scenery
Had a week here at the end of March. Found the accomodation to be everything we needed. Very clean and cosy. Supurb location with amazing views on the doorstep. Owners very friendly but not interfering. Local pub 5 minute walk away next to harbour with great views also. Plenty of walks straight from the property. Lots of wildlife to view. 40 minute drive to Oban, with lots of shops, eateries and supermarkets. Would thorougherly recommend for anyone wanting a quiet relaxing romantic break. Great for bird watching and star gazing.
