We were fortunate enough to have good weather during the week which gave us some amazing sunsets, viewed from the outside terrace in total peace and quiet. Upstairs there is a lovely open plan space with the same uninterrupted views. Not often do you come across such a great property in the perfect location. We hope to be back sometime in the not too distant future. Highly recommended.

It is very remote so I would take the owners advice and stock up on your way with food supplies (we didn't starve). We had an evening meal at the Loch View Inn (only open thurs-sun) and although dubious at first we all really enjoyed it (the sticky toffee pud was delish). Do try out the hot tub, awesome. Beautiful scenery, walks, we had a day in Oban (took just less than an hour to get there). We would definitely stay again!! Thank you :-) I'm just sorry I didn't have time to write in your guest book. If you fancy trip away from the hustle and bustle then this is it.
