Would definitely recommend a stay at Springbank. The house is very well equipped, and was a lovely base. We were lucky with the weather but, had it been bad, Springbank felt roomy enough that spending several days mainly indoors wouldn't have been a hardship. The garden is also very nice, and sitting out in the evenings was a definite bonus. The owRead moreners provided extensive advice on things to do in the area, and responded promptly and helpfully to our few queries. We hope to be back! Hide

Wonderfully located house within 15 mins walk of the beautiful Loch Etive. The house itself was very well equipped and so comfortable to relax in after being caught out in the rather frequent rain storms. Lots to do and see in the immediate area and also an easy drive into Oban for the ferries. Entertained at home by just watching the masses of birRead moreds on the garden feeders. Very helpful owners when an item was left behind. Hide
