It was exactly what my family needed after a stressful year. The accommodation was of an excellent standard, with everything we could possibly need. The school House is situated in the most beautiful location. It is perfect if you like walking & spending time in nature. We were blessed with good weather, so spent most of our visit outside amongs the amazing wildlife! We loved Oban, I would especially recommend doing a boat trip to see the Seals, my kids loved it, & it is very reasonably priced! Don't forget your Camera, because you will need it, the Highlands is breathtakingly beautiful!

The house is warm and so comfortable and as I have said the views from the window beautiful was so good to watch the sun go down in such a relaxing house. We saw quite a few seals in the bay, lovely to watch, we are back home fully recharged and already thinking about next years visit. Yours Sincerely Marie Wilson

This cottage was very comfortable, well equipped and spacious with 3 large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms as well. The kitchen is well equipped. Bedrooms are comfortable. The loch is just at the bottom of the large fenced in garden which has patio furniture for you to sit and enjoy the views outdoors. The large spacious conservatory was the best room by far (all the rooms have good views) in the house to enjoy the spectacular views and ever changing weather conditions (better than watching boring TV). Glen Coe and the Isle of Mull can be seen from here. There are plenty of things to see and do: Short drive to Glen Coe, Glen Nevis, Fort William, Neptunes steps and Glenfinnan Viaduct as seen in the Harry Potter movies .There is picturesque walk from the cottage to Inchree waterfalls. Enjoyed it so much that we didn’t want to leave and are already planning our next visit next year
