It was cosy and warm in the cold february weather. Everything was thought off and everything provided was excellent quality. Beds were so comfortable too. Great location and spacious enclosed garden for the dog. We loved staying here and would definitely stay there again and will recommend to friends too. Very sad to leave

                                                                                                      Property was nicely furnished and well stocked on first impression. Plenty of logs for the fire available and a kitchen with ample utensils/dishes (although no toaster). Was a fine location for us as we had a big 4x4 however the drive up to the house might be too much for smaller or lower to the ground cars that don't cope well with potholes. The weather was absolutely fantastic during our stay, and although cold outside it was fairly easy to keep the house warm enough - the floors are very cold though especially in the kitchen and bathroom, I would recommend bringing slippers. The bathtub is a great size too and we were able to fill it up with plenty of hot water without any problem. Some areas where this listing could be improved would be the Wifi as it cut out every extremely frequently; the TV is also quite small; the couch was much too soft for our taste, as was the bed; the choice of pillows on the bed was not to our taste either as one was far too hard and the other too soft; there was a lot of dust in the house as well - mostly behind or under furniture, it appeared that only a surface attempt to hoover had been made; and finally after running a bath in the evening one night we were unable to get any hot water until the next morning - this caused some problems when we were trying to do the dishes after dinner. Overall however many attempts were made to make our trip as comfortable as possible and we gratefully appreciate that. We had a lovely trip, the highlight of the house for us being the well stocked kitchen and the roaring fire, and of course the proximity to Inveraray and all it has to offer.
