Springbank is a wonderful place to stay. The house is big, beautiful, very good equipped and warm. We found everything we needed - in the kitchen, laundry room or in the two living rooms. It is very nice decorated and the view over Taynulit and Loch Etive is breathtaking. In the village is a small grocery which is open every day. The Etive Restaurant is closed now, but it is worth going to Kilchrennan Inn - nice location and good food. When Robin's Nest is open you can have a breakfast or lunch there. They have tasty scones and toasties. There is a butcher and a small post office in the villag...more

Next time we would bring less luggage. We found th...more
We had a wonderful week at Tigh Grianach Cottage! It was just a short ride to Oban where we spent most of our time, and the view from the cottage is outstanding. It was a bit more expensive that we had we had planned to pay, but was worth the extra for the size and location.
