Sehr schöne Wohnung mit toller Lage für Unternehmungen

5 of 5
Vielen Dank für 14 Tage in dieser schönen Wohnung. Es ist alles vorhanden, gute Ausstattung und fantastische Sicht auf den Fjord und die Berge vom Wintergarten aus. Dazu gepflegt und sauber. Die Lage ist ideal um das Gebiet um Fort Wiliams und Oban zu erkunden. Wir haben tolle Wanderungen gemacht, den Ben Nevis bei blauem Himmel und Sonnenschein bestiegen (ist nur an wenigen Tagen im Jahr möglich), einen Strandtag an der Sanna Bay eingelegt (unbedingt machen - weiße Strände), Mull und Iona kennengelernt. Außerdem schöne Gärten ...... Ein idealer Auagangspunkt für einen ersten Schottlandbesuch. Wenn man es "ruhiger" haben will, dann muss man doch weiter in den Nordwesten fahren. Wir kannten diese Gegend noch nicht, deshalb für uns ideal.

Cosy and well located

5 of 5
The owners were friendly and helpful. The studio was clean and well laid out. We travelled around the locality easily and saw some stunning sights. We had a pine marten who came to eat peanut butter on the patio along with a friendly vole and many species of birds. Good location for island trips from Oban, Loch Ness, a seal sanctuary and Fort William.
