  1. The accommodation exceeded all expectations and Alan the owner was superb. He even phoned us when we got back home to see if we had arrived safely!!! Sept 2012.
  2. Excellent property in an ideal location for a group with children. Wonderful views of the coast line especially when it was sunny. July 2012.
  3. A wonderful house with a really beautiful view. Everything is there for you - no need to load up with supplies. June 2012.
  4. We have never stayed in such a well kitted out house! It even had properly sharp knives which is a rarity. We had a problem with a TV but Alan was so helpful and sorted it out. The views from the two main bedrooms is fantastic. The house is so spacious and is much closer to the sea than I thought. Really loved it. May 2012.
  5. This beautifully built, equipped and well-situated house was perfect for our needs. The owner Allan could not have been more helpful. The house is rated "gold" but "diamond" would be more appropriate. Sept 2011.
  6. A perfect holiday cottage, lovely walks to the beach, wit no midges! Very good local shop. Super seafood as you get off the boat at Oban, also best fish and chip shop in the UK, you can even get battered oysters! The owner is very helpful. July 2011.
