The cottage is superbly placed, just back from the shore, overlooking the bay. It has the added bonus of being set higher than the other cottages, so the terrace gives a panoramic view. We have never before stayed in a cottage that was absolutely, spotlessly clean. All credit to the cleaner. The sofa, bedding, towels and crockery were all brand newRead more and the kitchen was very well equipped. We had the added bonus of deer grazing in the back garden! A perfect holiday in a lovely cottage. Hide

We have stayed at this cottage a few times. We love the area and the cottage. It is is a prime position in the centre of the village with the pub and shop/ cafe just a few paces away. It is a lovely interesting area, with a lot to do for those who like boating, walking, wildlife and history. The wonderful national nature reserve of Taynish is next Read moredoor, there are wonderful archaeological and historical sites at Kilmartin, Keills, Kilmory and the ferry to Jura leaves from Tayvallich harbour.

Perfect location if you love the walking and watersports. The village has great amenities for somewhere so small and everyone was really friendly. The bay is protected from the worst of the weather and seemed to create it's own microclimate. Carsaig, on the other side of the peninsula, had a beach at low time and felt a bit wilder and more remote. Read moreWould love to go back. Hide

The cottage was easy to find and access with wonderful views over the loch harbour and distant hills. Having a sloping car park and a steep ramped access up to a raised terrace and a step up into the bungalow might make it difficult for some people to access, but the panorama is well worth it for those who can manage the slope.
