“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My partner and I had a lovely stay. The house had everything we needed and was very cosy. We used the fire every day which was great, however when it was a still day the fire didn't draw as well as when it was windy. It did heat the house though!
There are some beautiful walks which were mainly all local, the ones which were further away were well worth the drive though especially to Benmore Botanic Garden where dogs were also welcome to join us.
Every morning and evening the field next to the house was full of deer and it was a joy to watch them.
The views from the house were amazing and it was very peaceful, which is just what we were looking for.
Would recommend to families, couples, friends and to all, a wonderful place to stay.
Very happy.

Management Response

It is a big boost when guests have time to review our properties. We were thrilled you had a good week and I hope you enjoyed the new bathroom. We will look at the chimney and check there is no problem. When the lets are not back to back it sometimes takes a while for the chimney to warm up which then helps the draw. Many thanks for your comments. Review's makes it all worth while!!

“Cosy”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This is just what you would expect, and just as they describe it. Cosy, simple, a bit old fashioned, but with a lovely big hearth to sit by. It is pretty rural so you need to plan to buy milk etc on your days out, and the track to the cottage is a bit muddy, so not for the fair hearted on a rainy, snowy day.

“Amazing views, special location, lovely family”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have spent two wonderful vacations at Ederline Estate where Finchairn (pronounced "finni-hearn") is located--one at Christmas and one in July/August. This is an exceptional cabin located hillside overlooking Loch Awe. The color of the landscape and loch change with the daylight and weather. It is like living in a painting. This is for you if you want peaceful solitude, amazing views, and the freshest air on Earth. From the cottage, you can take walks up into the hills to see unparalleled views or down to the Finchairn Castle ruins and Loch Awe. A larger town with grocery, banks, mail, etc. (Lochgilphead) is about 20 minutes away. Argyll is not as busy as other parts of Scotland, but it is the country's birthplace and abounds with great historical landmarks. Carnasserie Castle, Kilmartin, and Fort Dunodd are within 15 minutes. The drives around Loch Awe, to Inverary, and to Oban/Ft. William are gorgeous. For the cabin itself--it includes a well-stocked kitchen, comfy beds, and perfect sun porch. The owners are friendly and helpful, happy to give advice on outings, etc. If you want to live in a painting, enjoy peace and escape, this is the place for you.
