Weather was perfect and apartment was ideally situated,both for walking along promenade or sitting admiring the beautiful views. Apartment was perfectly equipped with everything one needs, very comfortable indeed. I am extremely bias re the island so to me it's faultless. Hope I will return again soon.

It is equipped to a high standard and very comfortable. It is both cosy and spacious; just right for two people. The library of books, maps and local information was fantastic and really appreciated. The garden has lovely places to sit and take in the changing moods of Loch Fyne or look at the night sky. The cottage is a great base for visits all over Argyll, as well as just a short walk away from treasures such as the Crarae gardens. Our week-long stay was just not long enough for all of the things we wanted to do within easy reach of Inverae Cottage.

We came from the NE of Scotland and had folks coming from overseas and south of England and with Glasgow airport only 1 1/2 hours away it was an ideal location. The villa was absolutely perfect for our needs, plenty of space and very well equipped. Exceptional views from the villa, spent a lot of time watching otters, curlews etc. from the drawing room window. Would highly recommend the villa, especially for large families or groups looking for a peaceful holiday on "Argyll's Secret Coast" Michael and Alison
