Kenmore in one word Marvellous look forward to a return visit its a wonderful house and location and any holiday makers who stay there are sure to enjoy just as much as we did just perfect.
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.
As we had been in Dunoon before we knew where we were going. The flat was perfect and in a great place for the venues. The company that runs the holiday houses were very helpful to us. The gentleman in the sharps goldsmith shop was very helpful and kind . The ladies in the bakers were great . Mac lures for drink and music were great. So all was well for us. Hopefully the national mod will be back again . Queens hall looking good too. Thank you all very much Mags and Johnny cameron Glenelg
Never better. It was great..........................................................................
Second time we have stayed . We are a party of two adults and two teenagers and attend the Cowal gathering. This cottage is perfect for us and we are booked for same time next year.
This was a perfect haven to retreat too after a long day. Very central for shops and yet perfectly situated as a base for exploring. Everything was provided and more. I would most definitely stay again.
Springwell Cottage is a lovely WARM cottage with COMFY BEDS. That alone makes it a fantastic stay, but on top of that it has an amazing kitchen for cooking in (although you may want to bring some basic utensils etc) and a lovely living room with a fire. The Bath is HUGE and it's a perfect space to just while away time looking out the window seeing the ferries go by on the lock. I know I probably sound a little over enthusiastic but i've stayed in enough mediocre holiday cottages to feel genuinly excited when I come across somewhere like this. Added bonus is the owners run the show and they ...more
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
An excellent place to stay in Kames/Tignaburagh. Excellent hosts as well, so friendly and helpful. The house (upper level) is very cozy and spotlessly clean and more than adequate. Large bathroom with shower over the bath and a toilet along with a separate toilet along the hallway. It has the most beautiful view out over the water to wake up to each morning, which is ever changing in light, movement and sea going boats. The Kitchen is very well equipped with everything that you need to cook a dinner. (we cooked a Roast dinner) We stayed there with two other adults and felt we all had ple...more
Having returned to the cottage for our fourth visit, we have had another very relaxing holiday. The location is so peaceful, with lots of lovely locations to explore through walks. Our children love to explore the woodlands. The cottage has everything you require in terms of cooking utensils, bedding, towels, washing machine, microwave and dishwasher, making things so easy. It’s a great way to bring in the New Year with the family, a real home for home. We look forward to returning next year.
We had a great stay for 24 days. House was well equipped with everything you needed, and had a lovely view. The beds were comfortable and the 2 main bedrooms were spacious. The 3rd bedroom was quirky. House was lovely and warm with the storage heaters and even had to switch them off at times.There is a nice wee garden at the front of the house with a BBQ.Owners contacted us when we booked and introduced themselves which was lovely and all instructions were received before we traveled. Never quite worked out how to work the washing machine so instructions would have been handy. Only negatives ...more
Having great weather enhanced our stay. Wildlife highlight was a seal on the seal shaped rock not far from the cottage one evening - unfazed by one of use going down close to take a photo.
We have been to Dunoon/Strone 7 times over the last seven years. We love the area, so peaceful and plenty to see and do. Dunbheag Cottage was perfect. It was very comfortable and clean, everything you needed to make it home from home. The view was absolutely fantastic from the cottage. There was a summer house in the garden (which was huge) with chairs for you to sit in, but, the best was the glass summer house on the edge of the garden, it was most beautiful sitting there on a night time looking out to the loch. There was also the lovely surprise of chocolates and a bottle of fizz, that went...more
Barr cottage is perfect. Country cottage vibes with all modern comfort. Everything was so well equipped which made self catering so easy. Cosy and warm too! Birds and wildlife right outside the door and view of loch from window in the lounge. Would love to return.
I stayed at this place for 4 nights. It's in a good location, overlooking the loch, it was quiet and spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfi and I slept well, but in all honesty I wouldn't have been that comfortable if I would have had to share it with my partner; we would have found it too small. The best part are the owners, not at all pushy, like some I've come across in my many years of travelling, but I did get a welcome like I've never had before. The lady of the manor even made soup to warm me after my journey, and left me very nice treats, which made me feel really spoiled. They we...more
This is a lovely small cottage in Glenbranter in a beautiful and quiet spot. The view from the front door is of trees and hills, there is a river a few yards away. The cottage is as described, a very comfortable bed takes up most of the bedroom, but there is a chest of drawers and cupboard space. Living room / kitchen area is fine. Electric and wood stove heating, fuel and firelighters are provided, The wifi is not fast but works. Instructions for arrival and entry were accurate. Mobile phone signal in area is very patchy. The landlord has provided a helpful folder with clear instructi...more
Excellent spacious, well equipped,clean house. Stunning location to spend a weekend relaxing with friends or family. Walking distance to 2 pubs and a restaurant. Have been before and plan to return.
We were deeply impressed of this little treasure. We made every day a hiking tour und in the evening we fired the wood stove and enjoyed the loneliness. Only a lot of sheeps and two rabbits were our neighbours! What a pleasure! We were very pleased, that we got new towels at the half of our stay - the housekeeper came especially to bring them to us. The landlady has made a portfolio that explains everything. The wifi works most time good. There are a lot of maps of the larger surrounding, so there is everyday something to do, hike or visit. It was really hard for us to leave this little hou...more
A beautifully and tastefully restored cottage on the shore of Loch fine everything you could possibly need, enchanting to say the least
This is approx the 6th visit to Heathfield Villa Dunoon and we hope to return in 2019! We always have a great time in this lovely house. It is very clean and well appointed and the welcome goodies are much appreciated!
Had a wonderful stay at Craignethan, Kames. We have stayed here several times and can't wait to return. It is fabulous!
Perfect accomodation for a family Holiday in western Scotland! Beautifully located directly at the seashore. Very well equipped and very, very nice Hosts. Thank You very much!
The Pier House is in Kames and has it name implies it is on the waterfront of the Kyles of Bute, with the excellent Kames Hotel just behind. Tighnabruaich is about a mile away with a range of shops, hotels and restaurants. This makes the property an ideal base for exploring the Cowal Peninsula and going further afield to Bute and Kintyre. The property is well supplied with furniture and other requirements and has a sensational view over to Bute.
5 star luxury on the secret coast of Argyll .its the second time we’ve stayed at waterside can’t wait till the next time thank you Bruce & Penny
This is the third time we have been to the Benmore Farm accommodation and, once again, we had a fantastic stay. The accommodation is superb and well maintained. The surrounding location is great with many beautiful walks close by. Very quiet and undisturbed. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic stay at Iverfyne. Lovely comfortable cottage with all the amenities and mod cons you need. Beautiful area with Loch fyne restaurant, garden centre coffee shop and the brewery within walking distance. Inverary is just 15 minutes away with lots to see and do. Also a great location to visit other parts of Scotland. We particularly enjoyed seeing the cattle in the fields right next to the cottage. Very cute and cheeky reaching over to eat the garden plants!!
My family and I really enjoyed our stay in the lodge, and it had everything in it that we needed. My children settled in immediately and slept very well. The relative lack of tv channels was a small disadvantage, but we weren't there for most of the time so it didn't matter much, and we even got some of the old-fashioned games out! Internet access was mostly ok, but was a little slow and sometimes intermittent. I am allergic to feathers, so the feather-filled bedding was a small problem for me! On the whole these little things did not detract from our enjoyment of our stay, and the location w...more
We really enjoyed our stay at Rosemount Loft – warm and comfortable, with spectacular views, and so many little touches that make it a real home from home. We will definitely be recommending the loft to friends and relatives.
My wife and I took our two young grandchildren to Tighnaheaglais Cottage for a short break and we all found it a wonderful place to stay, both indoors and out. The house has 3 bedrooms, all with comfortable beds. We made good use of the space in the living room (moved the coffee table out the way) and the conservatory at the back of the house, as well as the sizeable front garden. The kitchen is well equipped and allowed us to cook all our meals, and the central heating is efficient and easy to control. The woodburning fire is a lovely touch in the evening and the kids loved to help me bui...more
Beautiful cottage, including everything you could possibly need. Extremely comfortable beds. Lovely welcome gifts from owners and very receptive, helpful and accommodating.
Have stayed in this cottage for the past 5 or 6 years and found the accommodation very comfortable and of a good standard. The owner (Fiona) is. very approachable and helpful.
With wonderful sea views and close by shops and eateries this comfortable flat is a great base for a holiday in Tighnabruaich.
Our stay was wonderful. We needed a large house for my extended family and the gentleman at Argyll Self catering Holidays could not have been more helpful on the telephone. The 5 double bedrooms with 4 bathrooms are all nicely furnished and very warm, the laundry is great, and the reception rooms with a sun lounge off the kitchen are very relaxing and spacious. The property is quirky with the entrance from a large level parking area being at first floor level into the games room and some bedrooms, the rest of the accommodation being downstairs. That makes it fun in the first place. The ter...more
We spent 10 days at the Alt Beag House and the pictures do not the property justice. The property has everything you require and the extra touches of books,games and large selection of dvd’s available to use. The views from the property are stunning and there are lots of interesting things to do in the area. We where a group of six with age group ranging from 20 to 80 and our pet border collie, their property offered plenty of room. Would highly recommend and will be returning again.
House was beautiful and perfect for our family holiday. Lots of room for the little one to play and we loved the balcony for relaxing in the evening. The area was gorgeous and we found lots to occupy three generations of the same family. The garden was secure so we will look to bring the four legged members of the family next time, that is always a concern when properties advertise dog friendly, but this certainly was. The hosts were great, the pub is excellent and the food delicious. What's not to like? We will be back!
We were here for two nights to take part in the Royal National Mòd in Dunoon. We needed a quiet, comfortable, clean, accessible base, easily reached from the different venues. Hazelbank ticked all our boxes and more. Our hosts were so kind and welcoming, and their local knowledge was much appreciated. We wish we could have stayed longer and would love to return. This apartment is a real find, a gem!
Had a lovely long weekend with friends in this property-only a five min walk to shops and Resturants,and an amazing view accross the Loch! Will be back! x
We spent a lovely week in Upper Ashwood South. The flat is spotlessly clean, well-equipped and comfortably furnished, and we had everything we needed. The views from the front windows are stunning and that from the dining area over the gardens and towards the woods beyond is also very pleasant. This is our third visit to Ashwood, and Kames never disappoints.
The cabin was lovely, comfortable and warm. The shower was good, the bed very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed including a dishwasher. There is a good selection of books and DVDs. Parking is a little further away from the cabin but close enough not to be inconvenient. There is a large covered veranda overlooking the garden, with furniture. If you love birds, take plenty of seed. There are bird feeders which we filled with seed and we saw a lot of birds visiting. There are also red squirrels in the area. A beautiful area and a good location for cycling/walking in the...more
Relaxing, cozy, inviting, comfortable, clean and well taken care of. The location is beautiful. overlooking a loch. Lots of wildlife to watch, including red squirrels at the back of the cottage. There is a great little local shop about 6 miles away (turn right out of the drive) that stocks just about everything you need and more. Also it's a lovely drive to get to it. To really appreciate the location of Teal cottage you need to get out and walk. It's like your in another world, just spectacular. The cottage has more than everything you would ever need, including a set of binoculars, which ...more
The setting for the cottage is fabulous and so peaceful. The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable. It’s a home from home.
Good location, with all equipment, very comfort. We enjoy to stay and want to stay more days. maybe next time
Stayed here for 3nights and found cottage to be of excellent standard. Owner very welcoming , cottage spotlessly clean with everything required to make stay very comfortable. Beds extremely comfortable with good quality bed linen, WiFi very good,garden enclosed which was excellent for dog. I would highly recommend cedar cottage for anyone looking for a peaceful break in a very good location. Would hope to return
Lodge was lovely enjoyed our stay just what we were looking for, log fire brought back memories.....
Very nice upper floor apartment with great view over wonderful Kyles of Bute. Great location in village of Kames, close to local amenities (well-stocked general store with helpful, friendly proprietor; pleasant waterfront not far below, local hotels, golf course and 10 mins from Portavadie spa resort). When there was small problem with electrical supply, owner and local contractor were extremely quick to tackle issue - both were very friendly and helpful. Comfortable stay (only lounge sofa bed was not the best, but were perfectly adequate). Altogether a very pleasant stay. Will certainly retur...more
wee have stayed there the past three years and cannot fault it very peaceful great value spoke to owner nothing a problem to her very nice,would recommend it to people wanting a good place to stay out the way of everything great location could not fault it.
This was the third time we have stayed here and we love it. Beautiful views beside the loch in a very peaceful setting which is also close to the amenities at Portavadie.
Excellent weekend away! An Cala was exactly as described and cosy in the wild weather! 5*! Would return
Trevenek cottage is certainly bigger than it looks from the outside with everything you would need for a pleasant and comfortable stay. We would definitely stop here again as it is ideally situated for us when visiting relatives nearby and accessing the beautiful scenic countryside and places of interest.
Had a very comfortable short break in pier cottage. We visit this area every year at this time to attend the Highland dancing Scottish and world Highland dancing championships in Dunoon and this is first time we have stayed outside of Dunoon. Was a bit apprehensive about staying so far out but road was not as bad as I expected for travelling back and fore. Cottage was small but had everything we needed and plenty of space for myself and two daughters. Bit disappointed the sofa bed couldn’t be folded away as was broken but didn’t spoil our stay: Weather wasn’t very kind to us until the Saturday...more
This is a house in a nice seafront location, handy for everything in Dunoon and surrounding villages. The host was very helpful and accommodating. Only negative is that the house does need quite a bit of attention as there are many things which don't work or are in poor condition which is a but frustrating because otherwise it would be tremendous.
The flat is well situated but I found a few matters which made it unlikely to use again.tv did not work so had to wait till next day to get it changed.no cheese grater which cleaner took from top flat to give me and no air freshener so a few ear ears like that and the clock is still one hour behind.
We spent a wonderful week in June, 2018 at Yealand House. Very comfortable for our party of 5. Hidden down a driveway from several other houses, you’ll enjoy perfect quiet. The kitchen is well-equipped for preparing and consuming full meals (several food markets are located in nearby Lochgilphead if you’re doing the cooking). The clothes washer, dryer, and dishwasher are all in top condition, too. The family room enjoys stunning views over the water to Jura, with light past 11pm in June. There is also a sunny room at the back of the house, perfect for morning tea and coffee. There are ...more
The general situation and aspect of the home were excellent. The interior functional and aesthetic. The garden and outdoor amenities (hot tub,chimenia, bbq) were outstanding. A bit of aproblem with the downstairs bathroom but that was quickly rectified ( need to check water damage from the shower in hallway wall!). A broom and coffee pot would have been assets. The upstairs toilet is also leaking around the base. We had a wonderful stay... a great home comfortable and convivial for our 4 adults and 3 young kids. Would highly recommend.
cosy remote location, far away from any network so as not to be disturbed by busy daily life. nice neighbors, good beer at the entry of the glen, an outside table would be nice.
Lovely quiet location overlooking boatyard and coast of Bute, view is ever changing with clouds, light and boats. Well appointed inside and out (though weather can be poor). Our third stay at Alderside and may well come back again.
We truly enjoyed our time in this home. It had more than enough room, excellent kitchen, and everything was nice and clean and very inviting. The views could not have been better and the proximity to town was great for walking or driving. Very quiet and all the surrounding homes were lovely. Would definitely recommend this home. Owners are very friendly as well.
Kintore is a fantastic property for a stay at Innellan. We have family who live locally and over the years we have rented many self-catering properties. This one ranks at or near the top of the list in terms of quality, comfort, cleanliness, location and value for money. Highly recommended.
A lovely little cottage, well presented and looked after. It was very cosy, and excellently situated for trips around the Loch Fyne area, as well the local village. The post office is also a shop and cafe/restaurant with very friendly staff and good food. Shop is slightly small but had all the basics we needed. A really great place to stay regardless of the season - going in December meant we could take full advantage of the open fire! Definitely recommended.
We rented Rowan Cottage in late September for two of us. Therefore, our comments relate to the comfort afforded to two people and may not translate for four (or more) people. Rowan Cottage is located in a small coastal village and is beautifully appointed providing superb views onto the Kyles of Bute and towards Bute itself. Access to the cottage is via a series of steps and may be a challenge to anyone unsteady on their feet! There are two and a half floors to Rowan Cottage. The top floor (Lounge/Kitchen/Deck area) are well-furnished, extremely clean and comfortable. The kitche...more
Lovely restful break. The only noise being the stream at the front of the cottages. Small cottages, each with its own garden.
This is a stunning log cabin in a fairly remote and exceptionally peaceful area right on the banks of Loch Fyne. Accommodation was exceptionally comfortable. Felt immediately at home. Loved the log fire. Really cosy at night. The master bedroom - with huge glass frontage overlooking the loch - was the jewel in the crown! Waking up to this view in the morning was absolutely breathtaking and gives the lodge a magical special feel. Breakfast in bed overlooking the water was very special particularly given it was my 50th. Went for a swim at the foot of the garden, which made my birthday al...more
Take plenty of logs or buy them from the Jet Garage down the road as the one storage heater in the living area doesn’t provide enough heat to sufficiently heat this area. Even with the log fire going it was still a bit chilly over the Christmas period that I ended up putting the oven on and leaving the door open to heat the open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area.
Nice cottage.friendly owners Comfy beds and good facilities lovely views. Quad biking fun. Beautiful area.
Loved the location of the cabin. Cabin sleeps 6 but only seating for 5 in the living area.. Cutlery, dishes and pots/pans could be doing with getting renewed Carpets needing a good clean lots of stains.. Beds and pillows very comfy Nice clean well maintained park. Had a enjoyable stay great walking through Pucks Glen . Good value for money
Had a great relaxing holiday away from it all ( the good weather was a bonus). Lots of walks to do and some great scenery. Would recommend the strone inn for food. Welcome pack was a lovely touch.
I just made a note for three days my wife and boy were welcomed very well the house we found clean and warm we felt good but we would have stayed more maybe next year
Everything was perfect. Beautiful and warm house. Everything was clean. Hot tub was great! Couldn’t fault it.
This cottage was fitted out well and had the bonus of having owner nearby to assist with any problems. This is a bonus for anybody who does not know area as they are willing to answer any questions.
The cottage was perfectly adequate but missing the cosy feel we would have preferred. People living upstairs could be heard moving around.
We had high hopes of this cottage. It looked good on the website, and the office responded very quickly to our query a few days before to confirm that there would be a travel cot in the house when we arrived. We arrived late at night, so the very poor and vague directions didn't help. We eventually found the right place, situated on what is a fairly busy road. There are two properties on the site, Woodend cottage is the larger one. When we arrived the house had clearly recently been vacated, was warm but smelt very unpleasant and musty. There was no sign of the travel cot, only an outer case ...more
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.
Comfortable house which was ideal for a family stay. Snooker room was an added bonus. Good location and a nice quiet area.
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 ;-).
Loved our stay as always - a little extra would be maybe the provision of butter/bread/marmite. Nonetheless, we loved our stay. We have been coming here for years since we used to come when at University in Edinburgh.
