Nice comfortable chalet with a nice view out of the main window. There is no television or wifi which is quite nice these days but also no reception for quite some miles so if you are wanting to research places to go do it before you leave. Also make sure you take some basics with you e.g. Milk, bread, tea,...

Management response:

Thank you for reviewing the chalet and feedback about basics.

The place had everything we were looking for to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Very nice and comfortable accommodation. The historic monuments of Kilmartin glen are also 5 minutes walk away and there are plenty of other scenic walks....absolutely beautiful and fascinating glen.
