Lovely to start the days watching the Osprey and the Gannets fishing in the Loch - and a glimpse of the otter.We had lovely paddles in the Loch over to Luing and Clachan bridge. Also a nice cycle over to Luing. Glorious weather for a walk up Ben Cruachan from where the views were stunning.
A nice relaxed, old house where we felt at home. Plenty of room for all 9 adults and a dog! Had a nice BBQ in the Garden. It was lovely to return back here again.
The great attraction of Creag-an-Fhithich is the view from the front door across the sea loch to the hills beyond. Breakfast, lunch, teatime, evening drinks, supper, late-night scotch, there was never a moment when it was less than perfect. We did have astonishingly good weather, but the view would be magical in any conditions. There are also easy walks nearby. The house is spacious and comfortable, and if it's a bit retro that's half of its charm. It has the welcoming feel of a family home. The kitchen is well stocked and everything was easy to find. We also liked the 'secret garden' just beyond the main garden. For activities, we recommend David Ainsley's Sea Life Adventures boat trip out to see the seals, porpoises and whales (the latter if you're lucky)--he's well informed and full of interesting details. For drinking, we recommend the Oban single malt as being perfectly balanced (we tried several...)
Wonderful and comfortable traditional stone house in a spectacular waterfront setting . Beautiful gardens with scenic barbecue area. Will be sure to return
We spent a wonderful week here a few years ago and promised ourselves we would go back. We managed it this year and weren’t disappointed. The cottage is in a beautiful location with stunning views across the Loch. The house is spacious and well appointed, with everything you could need, including lobster crackers and seafood picks - we recommend the fresh lobster and crab from the Seafood Hut in Oban. We had a couple of cool days so really appreciated the log burner in the sitting room. There is lovely garden to relax in but also plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. The owners are very helpful and both booking and checking in are easy. We very much hope to return.
