Lovely spacious cottage that fitted our family of 5 in very well. The property was in very good/clean condition and was well equipped. Excellent location, close to amenities and stunning view over the loch to sit and look at from the living room window. The good sized garden at the back was useful to have for the kids to play in and was safe. Communication with the owners was very good and they were very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We´ve been here in the summer of 2010. We have very warm memories of our stay. The house was perfect and everything in the house was present. The cottage gave enough space for our family, bedrooms had a nice and pleasant atmosphere. The views were beautiful! The communication with the owners was very pleasant and reliable. We surely would recommend the cottage to other people.
Scotland, Loch Fyne and our stay in Lochview are part of our warm memories.
