This very comfortable cottage has stunning views over the Loch and is in a great location for exploring the area. We enjoyed numerous, very varied walks, a couple of delicious meals at the Tayvallich Inn just down the road and a wonderful boat trip from Crinan. A great week!

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.

An amazing cottage in a quiet relaxing location with amazing views. Well equipped and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes a quiet life and likes walks, watching boats coming and going and some wildlife. There is a range of activities within reach, for more active people.
