Close enough to the beach and shops. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider it if we go back to Inverloch. Also, Lisa had left a bottle of wine for us and some toiletry, which were really handy. There are some board games in the cupboard (Jenga kept us busy for hours!!), and good movies to watch and good music to listen to in the TV cupboard.
