Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Strathlorne is a magical place to stay. The views are spectacular; boats, weather and wildlife ensure that something is happening all the time. We were 'glued' to the huge picture windows with binoculars at the ready!

The house itself is unlike any holiday home we've been in, it truly feels like a home from home. Everything is tastefully done and we're already planning our next trip!!

Thank you so much.

Exceptional cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable spacious cottage furnished to a very high standard. Situated right next to the beech with floor to ceiling windows which display breath taking panoramic views east and north beyond Castle Stalker. Hours spent sitting out on wood decking taking in scenery whilst reading and relaxing. Enjoyed watching yachts and local ferry navigate the waters in front of cottage. Gorgeous island with lots of easy walks. Have stayed in many cottages in Scotland for 40+ years and Strathlorn by far has been the best.......very special cottage. Wish our stay could have been longer!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments about your holiday in Strathlorn. We like to think that our cottage is a very special place. That is what we have tried to make it. We hope you will return like many either people do because Strathlorn is everything you could want in a holiday cottage and Lismore is a lovely island with very friendly people. Our views are wonderful and there is always something to watch on the sea. We hope you saw the otter as well a lots of other wildlife. Please come to Lismore again.

Beautiful property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Strathlorn. The house is very well equipped, comfortable and warm, and the views are amazing. It's wonderful to be so close to the water. Lismore is a lovely little island, the locals are so friendly and the Pierhouse bar and restaurant in Port Appin is superb - it's just a 10 minute stroll to the ferry from the house and a short hop across the water and you're delivered right in front of it. The owners of Strathlorn are friendly and helpful too, great communication and told us everything we needed. We hope to be back as soon as possible!

Lovely relaxed home in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5, including 3 teenage girls and a dog. We had a very relaxing time watching wildlife from the balcony and walking to remote places on the island. The cottage has everything you could need and is very well appointed.

We bought most of our food from the Lismore post office shop and from some of the crofters. Port Appin, which is a short and fun ferry ride form the cottage has a lovely pub/restaurant.

We can thoroughly recommend Strathlorn for a beautiful, peaceful holiday.
