Beautiful, clean cottage with amazing views of the Loch.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lochview Cottage from Dec 26 through Jan 3 and could not have asked for a better experience in Scotland. We travel a lot and this was one of the cleanest cottages we have stayed in. The owners have truly made this a home away from home. There wasn’t one thing we needed that wasn’t already at the cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped, great selection of board games for adults and children and the laundry area was an added bonus. They also supplied a travel cot and high chair for our little guy. Instruction manuals for all appliances and a booklet for local information was so handy. We thoroughly enjoyed waking up each morning to views of Loch Fyne. The cottage is just an hour or two drive from many of Scotland’s beautiful scenes as well as 15 minutes to Inveraray. We would definitely book again if we are fortunate enough to travel to this part of Scotland. Our only suggestion would be possibly a mattress topper for the mattresses just to make them a bit more comfy. All in all this was a perfect fit for our family of seven. We all enjoyed our stay and the owners were so easy to work with from beginning to end.

We loved our stay and appreciate the owners letting us make it ours for the eight days we were there. Scotland is beautuful and we hope to be back!

Absolutely wonderful - relaxing home from home environment with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

After a 10 hour journey we were glad to arrive at LochView Cottage, yet there is always a little apprehension about what a property might be like (we had a bad experience once via a different vendor!) but we needn't have worried - the home was beautiful - clean, spacious, just perfect for our family and we were very grateful for the tea/coffee and biscuits (and wine!!).

The owners had left lots of brilliant leaflets about walks and activities/places of interest, plus well documented booklets about the house/facilities and surrounding areas.

The children immediately settled and felt comfortable (aged 2, 9 and 14!) as did we and we had a truly memorable week in stunning Argyll. Throughout the whole booking experience, the owners were friendly and helpful, accommodating for our questions/requests and we knew they were available should we need anything but they also provided for our privacy and allowed us to get ourselves sorted and settled in their home without intruding once.

Highly recommended for the house size, perfect for families or two sets of couples etc. It is very much home from home - has everything you need - tumble dryer, washing machine, maidens, vacuum, showers/bath, comfy lounge, separate dining area with baby highchair, great kitchen size with all the pots/pans etc. All the bedrooms had lovely views! The loch views are fantastic and the location is good - far enough away to feel fairly remote but close enough to drive to the local shops. The only slight downside if I have to say there is one is we were surprised how busy the road could be, you can hear the traffic (although we didn't mind at all as it fascinated our 2yr old boy with the logging lorries and cars driving past!) but it is no different to a normal busy road - the usual traffic passing. But perhaps if you were thinking that it is really remote then you might be surprised by the frequent vehicles - it is a main commute road of course from Inverary to Lochgilphead and beyond.

The local walks are literally on the doorstep - step into the back garden straight into the woods and from the front door - over the road onto the loch! Can't ask for much more than that!!!

Thank you for letting us stay. Highly highly recommended.

The Leggatts xx

We totally enjoyed our stay at Lochview Cottage. The views from the picture window were awesome. Plenty of room for all 5 of us. Great place to venture out from. We used it as a home base to explore the area. Thanks for renting us your cottage.

Definately recommend!

  • 5 of 5

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!

It was stunning indeed!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Argyll, in the West Highlands, is one of the most spectacular parts of Scotland with beautiful scenery, mountains, lochs and wildlife. It is an area steeped in history and offers a variety of activities. It is a wonderful area for hillwalking, bird watching, fishing and touring.

It is a busy fishing port with an 18 hole golf course, a cinema, an indoor pool, tennis and squash courts, a good choice of shops and restaurants and a lovely sandy beach at Ganavan Bay.

Travel north to Fort William, at the foot of Ben Nevis, and visit the magnificent mountains of Glencoe, renowned as a climbing and winter sports centre. Visit Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park
