...einfach herrlich...

  • 5 of 5

Ein absoluter Traum...wir war mehr als begeistert.

Zum angeln (Dorsch, etc.) benötigt man schon ein kleines Boot, welches man am fast nahen Campingplatz anmieten kann. NAchteil hier war, dass der Bootsverleih nur am Wochenende und an den Wochenendtagen gebucht werden kann.

Direkt vor dem Haus kann man zwar auch fischen, aber man benötigt schon eine Brandungsrute, um weit heraus zu kommen, da der vordere, erste 20 Meter Bereich recht lange flach abfällt.

Zum Fliegenfischen benötigt man eine extra Erlaubnis von Lord / Duke / Earl, u die zahlreichen Flüsse befischen zu können.

Das Aus ist jedenfalls bestens ausgestattet und gemütlich. Ich schwelge jetzt noch von den ersten Stunden am Morgen; bewaffnet mit einem heißen Kaffes sitzend im Wintergarten, um die Ruhe und Stille des Sees zu genießen, mit seinen vorbei ziehenden Vögeln und im Wasser tummelnde Robbe...

Just wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

All the communication with the owner of the property was pleasant, timely and very helpful. It advised very accurate directions to the cottage, and information about what to see and do in the surrounding areas. We found this invaluable.

We arrived at the cottage and it was beautiful, clean and like home from home.

Everything in the cottage worked as it should. Everything was supplied that we needed for our holiday.

The beds were firm but comfortable. The whole cottage was cosy, and the cooking facilities were good. Large fridge and freezer was useful.

The view from the cottage is just gorgeous. We even had a sighting of the Northern Lights!!!!

It was a very relaxing break in a lovely place.

Thank you!!!!

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I can't rate this cottage high enough. You have everything you need for the perfect relaxing holiday. Spotlessly clean. Well equipped and the view from the conservatory was breath taking. The road in is bumpy but take ur time as suggested in the details and it's fine... if I had to find fault that is all I can come up with.

Hi Kate, There were a few wonderful days in French Farland. The view and the location is just fantastic. The equipment of the house is really great. The only thing that could be improved, would be a sign on the road and a better descent to the shore. Otherwise everything was perfect. Greetings from Jörg and the other guys.

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a property with amazing views, direct loch access, privacy and peace and quiet this little gem is it.

Cosy and clean, a little quirky and basic but has everything you would need at a very reasonable price. We spent many hours in the conservatory and garden just enjoying the scenery.

The property is tucked away on its own, but is conveniently just a mile from the main road and three miles from Inveraray.
