Peace perfect peace

  • 5 of 5

A glorious location in a truly beautiful corner of Scotland. And a comfortable cottage.

Be warned that the road from the Corran ferry is slow (but spectacular and enjoyable) and seems to go on for ever. That's both good and bad. Good because the isolation of Ardnamurchan is a real plus. Bad because it reduces your daily options to the locality (but there's plenty to see and do), the ferry to Tobermory (lovely crossing, but not cheap) or a long drive (a day trip to Mallaig or Fort William - but why? - will involve 2+2=4 hours in the car).

The week was total pleasure, and a real rest.

Superb location

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay at Dondies & hope to return

Good for the dogs although a wee bit bigger garden would be a real improvement

That track down would be tricky with a low slung car

Peaceful homely and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in the dark at Dondies but everything was ready for us and the cottage lovely and warm. The next morning dawned clear and sunny and let us appreciate the glorious view to the Small Isles and the beach at Sanna. We had a very comfortable and peaceful holiday. Great place to unwind.

Wonderful Bolthole

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cosy cottage with stupendous views; remoteness is a benefit but transport is essential. Peninsula is well worth exploring as well as trips to the Isles

An Autumn Experience

  • 4 of 5

After a long and exciting drive onto the peninsula we easily found the property and settled in. A 'byre' conversion, Dondies is well-found, comfy and ideal for a couple. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and Dondies provided us with our focus foe the week's excursions and a welcoming place to return. The view from the patio is beautiful!
