“a perfect retreat from the everyday world”
Reviewed 25 February 2018 for a stay in May 2017

Tucked away on the Ederline estate, clachandubh is a beautifully appointed , warm and comfortable cottage in a very private setting. There are plenty of walks to be had over the estate and ederline loch with its wildlife so you have the best of coast and countryside around and the road to Oban is very scenic . The crafty kitchen at ardfern is a favourite coffee stop on the way. Oban is a very interesting characterful town and from there , ferry trips daily to the various islands of the inner Hebrides. the splendid e usk on the waterfront in Oban for a fish supper is good at the end of a day out.
the village of kilmartin with its café and museum telling of ancient history in the area, with standing stones to visit nearby is also a must. The Crinan canal and its scenic walks and The Crinan hotel with good food and amazing evening sunsets if you are lucky, rounds off a perfect day. So much to do. a week is never enough. we have never been disappointed. roll on our next visit!

“Perfection”
Reviewed 17 February 2018 for a stay in June 2017

We enjoyed our week at Clachandubh so much! It's a really lovely house, well stocked and spotless. Cozy beds. Loved walking all around Ederline Estate and boating and kayaking on the loch. From this location we took a day trip to Iona by ferry, went crabbing at Ardfern, and spent time in Crinan as well as Kilmartin (with it's museum and Temple Wood) and Dunadd Fort. Honestly though, just relaxing by the fire listening to the rain in the house was heaven. Willa and Angus are wonderful hosts.

We hope to come back to Ederline someday and highly recommend staying there. You won't regret it!

“Marvellous cottage for a week long holiday”
Reviewed 16 February 2018 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed with a group of friends and found the cottage to be a great place for the six of us. There was plenty of room in the large, comfortable and bright sitting room. The well equipped kitchen also had plenty space for us all with a large table (as well as the dining table in the sitting room). The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable. The attached boiler room was great for drying out clothes (needed because of rainy days).
The cottage is ideally located for walks and cycling from the doorstep and also is only a few minutes from Kilmartin glen with its numerous iron age sites. The Crinan canal is only slightly further away and is ideal for lazy cyclists as it is flat and traffic free.
Although the weather wasn't great when we stayed we managed to get out for a least a few hours every day to enjoy the stunning surrounding countryside. The views from inside the cottage across fields to the hills were also splendid on a rainy day.
The hosts Willa and Angus popped round to make sure all was well and to fix any minor problems. They were friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive.
Overall highly recommended.

“Great House Great Location”
Reviewed 16 February 2018 for a stay in November 2017

For a quite location that is dog friendly Clachandubh is hard to beat. The house is well equipped and spacious. We had everything we needed for a great break in deepest Argyllshire. Apart from the weather, which was very wet, but it was November so that's to be expected. We also had some snow which was great fun. At night with the fire on and a glass or two to unwind, what's not to like. I made full use of the woodshed and axe and really enjoyed chopping up our own logs. This is a great location to explore Argyllshire and we didn't realise there was so much archaeology in the area. We loved Crinan and had a nice walk along the canal. Loch Awe is within walking distance and Lochgilphead was also worth visiting.

“Heavenly peace...”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage has been beautifully restored and is in an idyllic situation on a very peaceful estate with glorious views, particularly from the back of the property. It is spacious and well equipped. You are well positioned for touring Argyll and Islay and Jura but there are plenty of glorious walks close by. I would recommend simply walking up in to the hills in the evening and watching the deer and soaking up the magnificent scenery. We were sad to leave. A wonderful holiday!
