A lovely retreat with a 5 star view
Of nearly 30 years holidaying in Scotland, this is the self-catering cottage with the most spectacular view. A very comfortable, warm cottage on a magical island. Already booked to return. We had our dog and six year old grandson with us- both loved it and the TV was never on. The Whiteheads are very helpful and how lucky to have a place like this!
Yes we know how lucky we are because when we visit we never want to leave. Not only are the views from the house fantastic, the island is just the loveliest and friendly place you could ever want visit, even when it's raining!
Fabulous views. Ideal holiday cottage for relaxing and doing nothing rather than exploring
Very good and memorable holiday. Lismore Island is obviously not very large so does not take long to explore but that didn't bother us in the slightest as that was not really the type of holiday we were looking for this time. The ferry back to port appin for a pub lunch or for more walking is straightforward and crew were friendly
very nice house in a peaceful location
A complete ‘get away from it all’ holiday in beautiful surroundings.
We were a little apprehensive going off grid to the Island of Lismore but we were totally blown away with the location, the views and the property! It was everything we had hoped and more. The views were breath taking and we’re certainly going to miss looking across to the mountains and watching the boats going up and down the loch.
The house was stunning and incredibly well equipped. There wasn’t anything more we could have asked for.
For anyone worrying about being away from it all, we brought groceries in Oban but the post office/shop on the island was very well stocked and open daily. The foot ferry to Port Appin can also be taken to access restaurants and a coop. The heritage centre and cafe on Lismore was easily within cycling and walking distance and does extremely good cakes! They also do curry evenings and fish and chip suppers.
Thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful home is a stunning location, we really didn’t want to come home!
Wonderful views from comfortable, well equipped accomodation on the beautiful island of Lismore.
The cottage that has everything!!
We generally make a rule that with so many places to visit we don’t come back to the same place twice, we will be breaking this rule for Strathlorn!
The views are unbelievable, the weather changes the view everyday. We had some amazing sunrises, and some stormy weather too, both equally beautiful.
The cottage has everything you could need, and I mean everything!! Sharp knives (something often lacking in self catering accommodation), good water pressure, warm heating, comfy bed, and incredibly clean.
Our ferry from Oban was cancelled on the first day because of the weather so we parked at Port Appin and took the passenger ferry over. We ended up leaving our car on the mainland all week. We did more day trips out as a result. The cottage is a 10 min walk at most from the ferry and everyone we met offered us a lift.
The owners were fab with emails and Denise made sure we were comfortable and gave us the heads up about the ferry, much appreciated!
The amazing views and super friendly people on the Island are just two of the reasons to visit.
Thank you for sharing your property with us!
Thank you so much for your review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Strathlorn and that you were just as enchanted with Lismore as we are. I will send your review to Denise, she will be very pleased to know that your appreciated her help. Denise is an absolute treasure.
Very happy to have you to stay again and my husband will be especially pleased that you noticed the sharp knives!!
Look forward to your next booking.
