Birch cottage is just as described with comfortable accommodation and fabulous views over Loch Long. The owners are very friendly and helpful and we had a wonderful week at Stronchullin. We only used the ground floor as there was just two of us.
Everything about our stay at Palm Court was excellent. Even before we arrived we had been given lots of ideas an recommendations from the property owner Lee. On arrival the place was clean and very well equipped, it even had surround sound. Our days were packed and to come back to such a homely place was perfect. The views from the 2 main bedrooms is stunning as well as from the living room and the balcony off it. All the beds were comfortable and there is plenty of space in the property for dining and relaxing.
We recently spent 3 nights at this wonderful apartment in Kirn near Dunoon. It has everything you could wish for and more. The views are amazing and the house is well equipped for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It's just a short walk to the shops and amenities in Dunoon, 5 minutes from the ferry terminal and there are numerous places to visit along Argyll's Secret Coast. Even in these strange times the owners did everything to ensure we had a safe and comfortable stay. A trip to Benmore Botanic Gardens is a must, beautiful views from Ardentinny Beach, a short drive to Colintraive and the 5 ...more
Very lucky to find Kenmore Villa available at short notice but rewarded with spotlessly clean and tidy accommodation which provided a very convenient base to explore Cowal peninsula and Kintyre. It was great to view the loch from the spacious lounge and dining room and return to a warm,comfortable and well equipped house after days out walking on the coast and in the nearby forests.
Had a super week in excellent well equipped cottage . Track down to cottage bumpy but well worth it if you want seclusion in a location with lots of great scenery and places to eat
Outstanding property with everything you could possibly need. Immaculately clean and very comfortable will definitely book again
Excellent accommodation very clean and tidy, lovely location. Good off road parking.Just what I needed.
this was a really well maintained and well finished place, although attached to a working farm, not in any way noisy and no farm smells. proximity to Benmore Botanic gardens was brilliant with wildlife everywhere you look, Red Squirrel, Red Deer , birdlife,etc. the only downside for us was that we only booked a week and had to go home on Saturday.
Barr cottage is beautiful and set in the most picturesque area, everything you need within 20-30mins drive. The cottage is sparkling clean and has everything you need for a comfortable and cosy stay. Victoria was so helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend a stay.
Very spacious and clean. Welcome hamper was an added bonus. Perfect location right on the sea front with terrific views. Could possibly do with some sort of wall or fence in the front garden as there is a big drop onto the road.
Great home with wonderful views on the loch, particularly from the upstairs seating arrangement and balcony. A spacious kitchen and large dinning area was ideal for family. There are a couple of pubs about 200 minutes walk away, but remember to take a torch as there is no street lighting for the majority of the pavement. Only slight negative is the pool table was on the slope with small holes in the cloth and just one cue which didn't have a tip.
If there is a more peaceful place on gods green earth, then point me to it, clamshell lodge is so quiet and peaceful, it was the perfect place to chill and wind down, it was my first holiday for 20 years and I will definitely be going back.
My husband and I were absolutely delighted with this beautiful apartment. The standard of cleanliness was exceptional. It was so clean it never looked as though it had been lived in. The photos of the apartment are good but the actual apartment is far more stunning. I fell in love with it as soon as I opened the door. The rooms are spacious with the most outstanding views from the sitting room and the bedroom. The balcony is perfect for relaxing and looking out to the Loch. Everything you could possibly need is made available. The kitchen is spacious and has all essentials required. The area i...more
We have stayed in Craignethan many times and love it! The cottage, location and village are gorgeous. If you go I am sure you will love it as much as us! Big thanks to owners and Argyll Self Catering for making another memorable holiday.
We stayed for a week in September and were lucky enough to get fantastic weather. We were a party of 4 adults and our dogs. The owner was helpful and the house was clean and comfortable and the loch and mountain views are amazing. It’s in a great spot for visiting Oban and also not too far to Ben Nevis and many other great walks. Benderloch beach was great for our dogs. The garden is securely fenced so we didn’t need to worry if we opened the doors. We would have liked some outdoor furniture to enjoy the sun so maybe that could be added at some time. We will definitely come here again.
Very nicely and tastefully renovated old stable building in beautiful surrounding. The house is perfectly equipped and the landlords were very friendly and helpful!
Spacious flat and kitchen was great -very well equipped. Views from living room and front bedroom are lovely. Quiet location. Decor is a bit dated but place was very clean. Open fireplace would make this flat perfect! There is a set of steep steps to access the flat which some people may find challenging particularly when carrying luggage, etc and there is no driveway- just a long path. We enjoyed our stay very much- thank you and we hope to visit again soon.
Our family comes to this part of Scotland every year and this is the best house we have stayed in. So much so we are booking it again for next year! As two couples we found the layout of the house really met our needs. The house was well equipped, modern showers, cosy fireplace, Sky TV, Wi-Fi. The best room by far is the kitchen/diner, with two windowed walls looking out directly to the Kyles of Bute, breath taking views every day, we saw plenty of seals in the water and deer on the beach and in the garden. There is a handy cupboard/room off the kitchen with all the glasses in it, plenty of ...more
Fantastic location, beautiful views. Excellent accommodation. Thank you Eileen and to Ian at Argyll self catering holidays.
Our stay couldn’t have been more perfect. Views from windows amazing, spacious rooms, comfortable beds and great en suites. Fabulous location. Village had fireworks on Hogmanay at each end, we had benefit of both lots being in middle. Grandson loved beach combing, and bonus seeing otters in wild. Loonie dook was loonie. Food at Royal an Lochan v tasty. Lunch at the Oystercatcher amazing. Beach at Ostel Bay lovely and peaceful albeit few muddy bits to get to it. All in all a great choice for family break to see in 2020.
We had a superb stay at Shelbourne Lodge. It was well-appointed and just the right size and facility-wise (bathrooms, dining room, lounge, kitchen) to accommodate a family of 8. The location on the canal was lovely. Loved the fact that it was an older building with a history - even an album of old photos to prove it. Lovely private garden - and some of the best pillows encountered on my travels.
After lockdown we were looking forward to our weeks break along with my 89yr old Mum. We were not disappointed. What a wonderful bungalow. Very well appointed. We wanted for nothing. The welcome pack was a wonderful surprise and the information pack was very helpful. We are already planning to come back in 2021.
We felt very safe as everything had been deep cleaned prior to our arrival. We were really impressed that disinfectant had been left for our use, the owners were in touch with us informing us of road closures which was helpful. This was our second visit and it won’t be the last
I have stayed at this cottage a few times now and the location is excellent especially if you want to do some traveling around the area. The cottage is very clean and has everything you need, I would highly recommend this quaint cottage.
We have only recently in the last few years taken to renting cottages within the UK. Having looked deeply into the cottages within the Argyle area we chose Cedar Cottage. On arrival we were over the moon with the standard and cleanliness of the cottage it was exactly as the pictures displayed it on the website. The location was just off the main road but tranquil with a host of wildlife constantly in and out of the garden including red squirrels, woodpeckers and a range of finches and tits to keep us interested in a quiet moment when the weather was a little inclement. Pre-visit contact with ...more
Rosemount Loft is very close to the Western Ferries Terminal. Easily walkable although we had a car and parking at the property was ideal. Instructions given to access the property were clear. The accommodation is stylish and quirky and well set up for a relaxing break. Everything is there that you would need. The flat is very comfortable with a wonderful outlook onto the Clyde from the tower room and thoughtfully, an excellent pair of binoculars are there to watch life on the water. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend.

Beautiful cottage and location. It is a lovely place to stay, and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
My wife and I needed accommodation at short notice and the owner was very flexible about when we could check in and check out. Located very close to Hunters Quay ferry terminal it has an excellent location and good river views from the front garden. Good space.
Myself, my wife and our 5 year old daughter stayed for the week. Would highly recommend. Great space inside the lodge and very close to Dunoon and the holiday village activities. Will definitely be staying again.
The house has panoramic views up and down the Kyles which can be enjoyed whatever the weather. Several of our party swam from the rocks in front of the house. The house is generously proportioned and we found everything we needed to self cater for a long weekend. Highly recommended.
We ve been to this house with family and friends six times over the last few years. The facilities are excellent and the kitchen is well stocked for seven people. We had a slight issue with the hot water supply which was immediately sorted out by the friendly and very helpful owner. The bedrooms were set up to our requirements beforehand. The house was extremely clean and well presented. We will be back soon.
Very pleasant front garden area but unfortunately there is no indication from the photos and description about the close proximity of the properties behind Letters Lodge North. Strange to find personal items of clothing and footwear in the hanging area of the dining room. A very random selection of crockery/cutlery/glasses/cooking utensils and pans. No kitchen cleaner or washing up liquid provided. Strange and annoying intermittent banging noises from the locked owners cupboard in the third bedroom/upstairs living room.
Great location next to the village hotel and across from a small church. No mobile coverage at all (unless on EE) which was fine by us. Cottage appears to be post war pre-fab style construction, and has thin walls where sound travels (in case you have noisy children like me). Oil fired central heating worked great and the cottage was very cosy, we had to turn the temp down on arrival. Bedrooms are a good size and the cottage was clean and well kept, although a little tired. The grounds are a good size and well kept too, but we had no need to use them at this time of year (other than the childr...more
Super cottage in the Argyll forest. Great walks from the door step, nice and quiet so the dog could be off the lead most of the time. The cottage was cosy with a log burning fire, though it was small, it was bigger than we expected from the photos. Great stay, would recommend.
The apartment was spotless and well equipped. Very comfortable in every way and location overlooking loch was wonderful. Gill phoned to check everything ok on first day. We found this such a relaxing week for a perfect combination of coast and country with lovely walks from the door as well as day trips. Good local amenities too including cafes, pubs, hotels and shop. A lovely village and a great holiday home to which we would plan a return trip with no hesitation.
Stayed here for 4 nights. It was really nice to see the red squirrels. The lodge was nice and cosy with plenty of room. The location is nice close to benmore gardens. Enjoyed getting away to the countryside for a few days.
Stayed in Sept 2020 and felt the property handled the Covid measures well, we enjoyed a pleasant stay with family members and felt safe and comfortable. Nice facilities and lovely the open plan kitchen/living room and the views over the water. The property was well equiped and furnished. would recommend it as a lovely place to stay in Dunoon.
The apartment is part of a new build near the waterfront, and also close to the shopping streets. It was warm and comfortable, with plenty of facilities and equipment.
We really enjoyed our stay at Ash Lodge! Very clean, cosy and quick responses from the owners. It was great value for money. The surrounding area is absolutely beautiful! And we enjoyed a great dinner at the Whistleford pub just up the road. Highly recommended and thanks for our stay. To be aware, it's not completely secluded, with similar lodges neighbouring but it's at the bottom so you don't look out onto anyone.
Excellent location situated right on shore with fantastic views of Bute and beyond. Accommodation compact and cozy. Perfect location at this time as so quiet you feel safe and able to enjoy the outdoors without meeting lots of people. Weather was excellent so enjoyed long walks and visited several beautiful beaches. Highly recommend.
A lovely house with superb views. Large comfy lounge with views over the Clyde as is the master bedroom. Lovely to sit at in the morning and see red deer and squirrels. Pool table in hall was fun although a little restricted with the walls. The walk down the garden path to the shore is a little steep but once through the opening, steps take you to a road that leads to the shore, a great short cut from the main way up to the house. Lovely forest trail only about 100 yards from house and Toward is not too far away either with its Lighthouse. A perfect location for a quiet restful hol...more
Lovely apartment, great views from sitting room window over the Clyde Estuary. Quiet location,friendly hosts, beautiful town.
This is the second time we have rented this property.We love it.Its so cosy.Unfortubately both times when we have arrived the property has been cold and musty smelling.It takes a wee while to heat up.It would make such a difference to arrive to a warm apartment. This time the fridge was really smelly and so we had to give it a thorough clean before we our food in. But we do love this property and will use it again.
Teal Cottage is a pretty, very comfortable cottage with beautiful views of the loch and hills right from the lounge and kitchen windows. A great base for exploring Cowal, Kintyre and the surrounding areas with a whole variety of walks including coastal, mountains and glens. We had a wonderful stay here and received a warm and friendly welcome from our hosts. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed a wonderful short break in Cockleshell Lodge. The Loch is literally a stone’s throw from the well appointed cottage. Perfect situation for water sports, birdwatching and beach combing. We dug for shellfish which we cooked and enjoyed enormously. The estate is very safe for children to play, run about, cycle and walk. It’s so quiet and peaceful. The Lodge itself is very comfortable with a wood burning stove. There were beach towels also which was a bonus. Ensure you take plenty food as the nearest shop is in Tighnabruaich. There is a large freezer in the kitchen which is quite well...more
Everything you need is provided in the cottage owners phoned to check everything was ok.The view from cottage was amazing.Would definitely recommend.
Myrtle bank villa, is spacious. Very well thought out for families, jigsaw puzzles, games, books, etc. We love staying there, as it is so welcoming and comfortable. It's lovely to sit and have breakfast overlooking the loch. If we went to Dunoon again, this is where we would stay. Tge only drawback is one of the beds has changed since our last visit, not very comfortable to sleep in, as it bows in the middle. Apart from that we would still stay again.
Nice comfortable cottage lovely views very peaceful location nice welcome pack good communication before we got there all Covid covered would recommend to anyone ale home very relaxed
The cottage was warm and comfortable with all the facilities required. The water pressure is too low for a shower but there was plenty of hot water for a bath. The small garden was a sheltered sun trap in the afternoon. The cottage is well located, within 30 minutes walk of Kilmartin and all the ancient monuments. It was also an easy walk to Moine Mhor nature reserve and Carnasserie Castle. There is a lot to do and see within a 30 minute drive. Lochgilphead has a good range of shops. We enjoyed our week in Argyll.
The cottage was very clean & tidy throughout with everything needed to provide a lovely holiday, including an incredible bathroom with spa bath & overhead rain shower. Owner was on hand whenever needed which was excellent service. Would love to return.
Spent a lovely short break at Loudon Cottage. Very comfortable and homely set in beautiful surroundings. Peaceful and quiet with only the noise of the birds around you. We will definitely return.
Lovely house in beautiful Tighnabruaich- quiet and peaceful location near the boatyard. About mile walk into village along coast road. Rosie was extremely helpful and accommodating. Accommodation great for family.
Stayed at Enmore to celebrate a family 60th birthday and had a great time. Property was in a great location with sea views of the Clyde. Plenty room for all and house had been deep cleaned with fogging process by host Mark.
Fabulous spacious villa. Beautiful location/views. Super decking area with delightful hot tub. Couldn't have asked for anything more⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
A beautiful view from the window is the USP of this property. Could do with brightening up inside & maybe more comfortable furniture in the sitting room (weather was awful so we were inside more) Having said that it had everything we needed. No housekeeping notices though. Sleeps 4 adults is pushing it unless it is only a base for sleeping. The location is ideal- so central to the village. A well stocked shop close by & cafes & bars/ restaurants a short distance away. Locals very friendly & helpful.
A nice house near the centre of Dunoon. It has a large garden area which is great to relax in during the nicer weather. Rooms are spacious enough and all very comfortable.
The house is in a perfect location with wonderful views. It's really comfortable, well equipped and warm. We have had a lovely stay here and would definitely stay here again if we were visiting the area.
We stayed here as a family of 4 (2 children aged 7 and 10) and mostly had a lovely time. The location on the loch is stunning and the cottage had a nice bit of character and a decent sized garden (shared with next door cottage). However, the beds were very uncomfortable and badly need replacing. We knew there would be road noise but along with uncomfortable beds this made for very disturbed sleep. There was a note from the cleaner to say that they were cleaning to high standards due to covid 19, however I felt the standard of cleaning could have been better, especially in the fridge. The only ...more
We booked for 1 week at this cottage in Strone, good weather and location made for a great break. A few gremlins with the booking after payment, only impacts those with Gmail accounts. Was resolved by Argyll Self-Catering, but could have been forewarned as it appears to be a known glitch. Given that to get any break during Covid-19 is a challenge for the owners, agents and customers its important that the cleaning and instructions given is to a high standard. We had a blocked sink on day 2, which would have been a problem before we got there - this was resolved but how can you clean with...more
Had a fantastic time in Kames over the festive period the lodge was great for our stay with stunning views and log burner to keep us warm would use it again
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The owner gave us lots of tips on places to go which was very useful.
Our main reason for hiring this property was the location, having stayed in other properties in Dunoon we expected a lot from this property but we were disappointed. There was no control for the heating, we tried turning radiators down but it didn’t do anything. Although the bed in the master bedroom was ok my daughter and grandson had to sleep on the floor as their beds were really uncomfortable. The bath in the main bathroom was cracked and the shower head clip did not hold the shower head in place.
We just love this place. Lying in bed in the main bedroom with a good book, every now and then looking out at the ever changing view, cycling along to the pub for a pint and lovely meal, walking the dog on the beach in the early morning mist - this is as close to heaven as it gets. We'll be back again and again.
Beautiful location, the cottage is in gorgeous setting. Could easily be 5 star however when we arrived the kitchen worktops had crumbs under toaster and things . The unit doors were dirty from food and needed cleaned. The table cloth was dirty. Dado rail in hall was covered in dust. The worst part was bedrooms are downstairs and the smell of damp was at times wafting up the hall , it was so off putting to sleep in. On the plus the bathroom was beautiful and clean. It just needs deep clean. It was disappointing and did affect how comfortable we felt. The owner was made aware but brushed it off...more
Great cottage and facilities close to lots of great walks, perfect for getting away from it all to relax with great views.
Lovely stay .Very comfy ,specious lodge . Excellent location . Lodge has everything what we need and much more . Amaizing view through the window . Thanks Diane
Fantastic location. Easy to pop over to Bute, Aran. Amazing walks from the house or locally on the coast. Every day a different view according to the weather. Great for makerel fishing on the local pier. Dinner every night if you want to. Property well equipped, good to have some puzzles for those rainy days.
Great accommodation would definitely recommend it. All facilities we needed. We found the drying room really useful when returning from outdoor activities. The owners were really helpful too when we had an enquiry.
Everything about The Ranch was fabulous. The owner, Dara, was super helpful before and during our stay, offering advice and tips about the local area as well as everything to do with the house. The location is simply stunning with a small river at the bottom of the garden and a river beach about 2 minutes walk away. There are countless gorgeous walks, waterfalls and beaches in the area. The Ranch itself is so comfortable and spacious. The beds are comfy, there are 3 bathrooms including a jacuzzi bath in the main bedroom ensuite. We are a family of 6 and The Ranch suited us perfectly. I'd...more
Breathtaking views ! Amazing hot tub, and steam room...Netflix on TV was a bonus + Lisa the owner was always accessible and helped us sort out WiFi and allowed a late check-out
Overall the stay was enjoyable. The lodge itself needs some upgrading. The settees were slightly damaged and the shower door was faulty. All the basics that were needed were in place and it was warm enough. The TVs in both rooms and in the living room was nice to have, as it kept the kids entertained. Great location and lovely views from decking area.
Fisherman’s cottage is a comfortable cottage in a stunning location. Weather the weather is good or bad, the sea views can be enjoyed. The cottage is well equipped, and we made use of both the fire bowl in the garden and the wood burner in side. Fisherman’s cottage, because of it’s location is not obvious from the road, so some additional information in the directions would have been helpful. We were able to pull into the little lane to unpack, and parking on the road just along from the cottage was easy enough.
The cottage is very well situated if you are looking for a quiet retreat. The cottage has everything you need but does require a bit of modernisation in the kitchen.
We had a fabulous break in Dolphin Run. The chalet was well equipped, stylishly decorated and furnished, and immaculately presented. The sofas and beds were very comfortable. We were fortunate with the weather (bright, sunny and dry) and we enjoyed admiring the lovely view and autumn colours from the outside decking area. Despite the evening/ nights being cold we were very warm and cosy in the chalet. Dolphin Run provided us with a great base to explore the surrounding area. We felt reassured knowing that the chalet had been fogged prior to our arrival. We plan to revisit another time s...more
We had a fabulous break at culzean house, the house has everything you need amd hottub and sauna was perfect to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Our family included 7 children from 2 years old to 14 years and they all loved the large garden space. We enjoyed exploring the outdoors, enjoying lovely nearby walks and visiting the lochs. Norman the owner was A gentleman so welcoming and visited us often to check all was well even bringing the children sweets. Due to COVID the restaurants nearby were still closed or had restrictions therefore we were unable to use them however we were able to...more
Shelduck cottage is situated at the end of the loch with lovely views. It has a large enclosed garden. The cottage was comfortable and we enjoyed having the log burner on in the evenings. The kitchen was basically equipped with one set of cutlery, one bowl, one plate etc per person ( covid regulations) . The frying pan was really no use at all and one of the saucepan lids was broken and quite dangerous. We also had to take our own towels which we have never had to do in other self catering establishments. The nearest shop is in Tighnabruaich which is a 15 minute drive away.
Lovely lodge in stunning area, very well equipped and all the comforts of home. Ideal base for exploring the area. Red squirrels and deer in the area
Cannot express gratitude and thanks enough to Iain argyle lets and owner for accommodating us at short notice Your kindness is much appreciated The cottage was so homely and location stunning It was so lovely to be able to return and relax at end each day to this restful cosy place Perfect place for us thank you so much
Having a sore ankle,the steps were were not easy on coming down. A light was very much needed to get at the key. The bath could do with a non slip mat or rubber discs. The place soon warmed, with the heating on for about an hour.
Yealand House has a great location and has wonderful views . The house itself is quite odd - eg the bathroom window is into the bedroom and does not have blackout curtains so when the bathroom is used at night the bedroom is illuminated. Similarly the bedroom window is into the sitting room- equally difficult.The eating facilities are poor - a small kitchen table is inadequate for 6 to eat around.The kettle leaks- and the teapot is inadequate for 6. I was irritated that the promised multi fuel stove in the sitting room cost £50 to use and this was not advertised in the booking details, I thin...more
Absolutely lovely.cottage had everything we needed.location stunningly beautiful.would def love to book again.
We had a wonderful time at the Boat House, cosy with the fireplace, beautiful view (even otters came along) and quiet. We got flowers and herbs from Richard from the garden and also tried some vegetables. :-) Just to be helpfull the following: Some things can be a bit better. The wood for the stove should be a little smaller fore the Boat House or an ax would be helpfull. The kitchen is a bit outdated but still functional. The outside of the house could use a little paint. The windows need to be cleaned at the inside to have an even better view ;-).
No separate toilet contrary to the description. The dinner table was wobbly. We had to screw it back. The WiFi is really poor. The kitchen drawers & the kitchen hood were dirty. Not enough dishes. No replacement for the toaster when it broke down. But lovely situation near the loch & nice welcoming basket
The cottage was quirky, but in need of a make-over. The kitchen needs a deep clean. Because of its location I might recommend it to others.
We had a very disappointing stay. Starting with the good points- the cottage is in a tremendous position. We arrived to find the cottage in a very poor state of cleanliness. The fridge was switched off and dirty. The kitchen floor and surfaces were similarly dirty. More of a concern was the obvious rodent infestation. There was obvious attempts to control the mice with traps in each room and plug-in sonic devices. Depite that, there was at least 50 mouse droppings on the carpet in my daughter's room and the upstairs cupboard was unusuable due to the amount of droppings. We spent the first 3 ...more
