Louisa and Mandy gave us excellent information before our visit and we arrived to find wine, birthday cake, flowers and a card which was a wonderful start to our visit. The house is cosy, warm, clean and comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The views from Craobh Haven are stunning and we had a fantastic birthday meal in the Lords of the Isles. We spent a great day visiting Kilmartin Glen and the Crinan area and another day visiting the Isle of Seil, Oban and Dunstaffnage. There is so much to do in the area that we could have been busy every day, but it is also a lovely place just to rest and relax. A memorable holiday.

Although the weather was wet and windy most of the time we still got chance to play in the beach in front of the house with the children. The pier was great for crab fishing too. The kitchen was large and well equipped and this is where we spent most of our time. The views, particularly from upstairs, were beautiful looking over to Bowmore and Jura beyond. I'd love to return hoping that the weather treats us a little more favourably next time. Having said that the weather did not spoil or holiday, the house was a great place to hide from the rain. Katrina, the owner is very helpful and responsive with any queries. Please make sure to go and see Aileen at the local shop for a coffee and bacon sandwich, if not you'll regret it!
