What a fabulous place this is. So clean and welcoming, with everything we could have wanted. We will definitely be coming back.
20 of us rented the south wing suite for a long weekend in January to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. The location of the estate was suitably remote and the scenery was stunning. The house itself was actually much bigger than any of us had envisaged.............its huge! The decoration and furnishings were totally authentic to their Victorian heritage.........a little 'shabby chic' but we all appreciated the original features and the grandeur of the place. The kitchens are well equipped with everything we needed and plenty of crockery, cutlery, etc The staff were very welcoming and re...more
I can't recommend the billiard room flat enough. 11 of us had an amazing time walking, exploring Mull, visiting Iona, enjoying the local pub, swimming in the river, sitting by the fire, steaming in the sauna and wandering in the light of the supermoon! It's the perfect place for a group holiday and I hope I get back to Ardtornish as soon as possible.
As a family we totally enjoyed our stay at acranich. Outstanding setting, lots of walking, abundant wildlife.

We thoroughly enjoyed our undemanding 'Victorian' (self entertaining) style Christmas at Ardtornish!
I've been coming to Lochaline since I was a child, and it is a rare place which stays as magical for an adult as it was for a child. It's just an absolutely incredible place. I wish I could never leave!
Ardtrornish House is very special as great efforts have been made to keep all the original features intact. I think that perhaps one either gets this or one doesn't. For example very old Belfast sinks which may be discoloured and cracked marble wash hand basins, with wonderful log fires and amazing spaces and an original butler's pantry and bells to ring for servants...there are none! The house itself has its own 'spirit ' and it resonates with an era now long gone. The estate itself has the most wonderful scenery and opportunities for walking and wildlife. It is quite possible to see an o...more
Nice touches, ie bottle of wine and Christmas cake on arrival. A little bit dated in places. Excellent selection of board games. Unfortunately no bin outside to dispose of dog waste.
We had a what I can only describe as the most wonderful Christmas and New Year retreat . Peace , Quiet and Solitude an escape from the hustle and bustle of the Festive Season and everyday life . After an epic journey of 13 hours , driving nearly 400 miles , 2 Ferry crossings , in the most appalling weather , gales and heavy rain we arrived at the property at 7.30 pm . At the end of our arduous journey a welcoming site greeted us , on opening the door and we found a warm cosy comfortable cottage , on the table was an array of edible treats plus a bottle of wine we immediately felt ...more
Lovely cottage in a gorgeous setting. A much need relaxing short break - thank you.
