Superb location if you like water and hills! Safe loch the perfect place for our windsurfing, canoeing and paddle boarding. Scotland had only just opened pubs, restaurants and tourist attractions, many were yet to open, However this had no negative impact on holiday enjoyment and good food as Oban has a great fishmonger! local pub ( although lacking its usual variety of beer) was very friendly, as was the local shop both a short walk away.
House was very comfortable with Loads of space and everything needed for a good holiday. Owners provided clear communications through the booking process and were helpful in providing loads of information about the local area. Very clean house, beds very comfortable and views from front rooms stunning. We very much plan to return.
We had a great stay at Creag an Fhittich, we launched our kayak from in front of the house, walked, cycled, Barbecued. Views Of the Loch from the house are amazing. The house is traditionally furnished, a long standing family home feel with everything you need. Good value holiday home with large enclosed garden for dogs.
Would recommend Venture West boat cruise from Crinan to the Corryvreckan whirlpool. We saw Sea Eagle and Golden Eagles and Sandy was a very friendly and informative skipper with new boat. Arduaine gardens also well worth a wander, Easdale too. We found the store in Ardfern had most things that Melfort store didn’t.
Lovely big house, perfect for 2 families to holiday together. Feels very much a family home. Lots of space inside and outside lovely gardens overlooking the loch. Cooker took a little getting used to, but did manage some great casseroles, perfect after a full day out. Great location on the loch side just right for our kayaks. The overall area is stunning, venture out along the Ardfern peninsula all the way to end and you'll be rewarded with amazing views of the islands.
A very comfortable and well equipped holiday home, we all enjoyed our stay, including our dogs. The situation is tremendous with views out across the loch.
There are many good restaurants within a short drive and lots of interesting places to visit, we can't wait for next year.
Grand downstairs rooms overlooking the loch and comfortable bedrooms - a place with character. The small road outside leads around the shore with fine views - good for cycling if you don't mind a few ups and downs. Lots of things to do in the area: boat trips to the islands, kayaking, seal-otter-whale-porpoise-eagle-squirrel spotting, whirlpools, gardens, castles, prehistoric sites (Kilmartin), good food in Oban and elsewhere... the sun may even shine! (Don't worry, the rain is quite warm) Your hosts are very helpful and you can bring the dog.
