We stayed in the MacDonald cottage and had our own private back entrance to the river. When we were travelling around the Inner Hebrides island hopping, we were rowing or floating on Loch Nell. Mary and John are exceptional hosts and their sons Martin and John took our son fishing. We enjoyed hiking Ben Nevis and exploring Glen Coe. Loved shopping and eating in Oban. Can highly recommend the Oyster Bar (about an hour’s drive), Ee-usk and Coast as places to eat. Best mussels are by the Ferry. The cottages were clean and comfortable with a nice touch of luxury. On a rainy day, we enjoyed the sound of Scottish CDs (Provides by Mary) and a trip to see Highland Cows and St. Conan’s Kirk. There is a very nice walk to a waterfall as well!
This is just such a wonderful business and one we were delighted to support and enjoy the benefits of when staying in Oban recently. The location is great - very close to Oban yet out in the middle of the Scottish countryside with beautiful landscapes in every direction. We had sheep grazing just outside our cottage which our toddler daughter absolutely loved. Being able to stroll down to the small loch next to the property was also great. Wonderful facilities - well appointed rooms, clean, warm and with dishwasher, washer-dryer, and all you need for self-catering, with added extra touches from the owners - wine, milk, coffee, tea and biscuits all provided on arrival. TV including freesat and Netflix was great too. Safe, clean, environmentally pro-active and friendly - and the owners couldn't be more delightful. Strongly recommended.…
Clan Cottages is beautifully located on a loch with nice views and in a quiet location, yet only a few minutes from Oban. We were in a two-room cottage, Clan McDougall, which was spacious and at 995 pounds for a week we though was value for money for two bedrooms. But the price should make it clear that this is not 'luxury' accommodation as one or two reviewers have suggested (and is also claimed on the company's website). In truth we thought the facility both inside and out were a little tired and needed a bit of sprucing up. An example in our cottage was a poor selection of crockery and glassware. Relatively minor quibbles though. Clan Cottages is definitely worth considering if you're looking for somewhere rural, quiet and spacious.
The cottage was superb. It was very well equipped to a very high standard. The Owner was extremely friendly and very helpful. There was a huge array of brochures about what to do in the area. The views over the lake were magnificent.
The Clan Cottages are just so peaceful, only 10 minutes from Oban but far enough out to be heavenly quiet. There are only 5 cottages altogether, we stayed in number 2. The cottage itself is superb for any type of holiday, everything you can think of is included, bedding, towels, and a fully equipped kitchen. Our cottage had 1 bedroom and bathroom. A lovely mezzanine floor with lounge and tv. also a lounge downstairs with a dining table. Plenty of room for the 2 of us. Views to die for, the loch and fields full of wildlife right outside our door. Mary the owner made us very welcome. I would thoroughly recommend Clan Cottages for a little Scottish get away.
