This is our second stay at Tigh Griannach and we loved it even more than the first, especially now there is an ensuite in the second bedroom. This cottage is really looked after and has such a homely feel. It is spacious and clean and the views are to die for. I could literally sit at that window seat all day. Our dog Ollie loved lying in front of the fire after a busy day exploring. The location is great and only a couple of minutes drive to the nearest pub (defo recommend Oyster inn) and only 15 mins to Oban. The owner Isobel and her husband are lovely and really want you to enjoy your stay. We had a fantastic New Year and will definitely be back again.



GREAT LOCATION

Beautiful situation looking up Loch Etive towards Ben Cruachan with warm and comfortable facilities. Great location, great landlord, great facilities, friendly cattle - pity about the lousy weather!!

overall we had a good time during our week at this cottage. Thr were however some points that I feel could be improved upon.

1 There was a main road right out front and cars/trucks came past at speed. There was no gate so with small children we couldn't just put them outside to play unsupervised. That reduced my enjoyment and ability to relax.
2 The photo suggests the cottage has character, but it has none. This may sound like a quibble but actually for me it was a bit of a disappointment. Perhaps a log burning stove, or walls that are any colour except magnolia would help.
3 The landlady only turned up once, to ask for money to cover electricity (which is an extra). I had no sense of how much this was going to cost (no visibility) so asked the letting agent and was a bit surprised when I got the bill as to the actual amount.
4 To give customers a real sense of welcome it may be a nice idea to have a little welcome pack - some tea bags/coffee/milk, a bottle of wine etc. The cupboards were absolutely bare when we arrived late with our young family and I would have been happy for a cuppa.

Having said all of this there were some great aspects:
1 The location/view was excellent. I loved waking up every morning and looking down the loch. It looked different every day. It was a gat springboard to exploring islands and peninsulas. Also useful to be near Oban for provisions and the swimming pool (good on the inevitable wet day).
2 The land lady's husband was very friendly and helpful in making us a BBQ. Amazing what he can do with some scrap metal and a welder!

I hope that is useful.

Best wishes
