Very comfortable and spacious cottage situated in this quiet picturesque Scottish village. The upstairs sitting room offers lovely views across the sea loch to the Morven mountains. Sit in our rocking chairs and watch the sunset!
We have aimed for a comfortable cottage offering our visitors a "home away from home" where you can take advantage of the many interesting days out around this beautiful area. An ideal bolthole you can return to in the evening and unwind after an enjoyable day! This could be in front of a roaring log fire, or, weather permitting, sitting out on one of our two decking areas and enjoying a B-B-Q. If the weather is not being kind (sometimes happens in Scotland) you can sit in our upstairs sitting room and enjoy a cup of tea or something stronger and watch the elements over Loch Linnhe and the Morven mountains from the comfort of one of our rocking chairs.
Very often we have parties of eight who have booked our cottage and arrive and say that hadn't realised it'd would be so spacious! It really can accommodate eight comfortably and is set up with cutlery and crockery, seating etc for that number. We also have two travel cots available for infants under 18 months. One high chair available too.
Guests have access to all areas of our cottage and garden.
When you are staying here you have exclusive use of all areas and everything at the cottage.
The only two areas "off limits" are our "big" shed and our upstairs cupboard which has our extra linen and towels.
Interaction with guests
We usually meet our guests and give them the guided tour! Showing them how various things work etc.!
Depending on work commitments we may or may not be about.(but you do have exclusive use of the house and garden)
Other things to note
We do accept dogs. These are £20 per week per dog, maximum of two dogs.
Please leave the cottage as clean and tidy as we leave it for you!
I love my Brompton bike and am out on it most days for exercise. If the weather happens to be really poor then I head to the swimming pool.
Incidentally my profile photo is not showing my normal clothing! This was a special Harris Tweed bike ride in Glasgow last summer.
We do have a large garden but I have to admit I do what I have to, but not really a green fingered genius so restrict gardening to grass cutting and tickling the soil to keep weeds down.
We're lucky and enjoy getting out and about on the hills and we can recommend some good walks particularly around Glencoe and Appin areas.
One of my favourite things to do is trying out new, to us, restaurants and of course revisiting good ones.
I do enjoy all sorts of music from rock; jazz; classic and of course easy listening, all depending on the mood and place.
Have had a Kindle now for about 3 years and as a result have read quite a few of the classics which I never tackled when I was younger. (usually the free ones! I am a careful Scot after all!) Detective novels and spy type books are my normal diet along with a good smattering of factual books.
I'd love to welcome you to our favourite bit of Scotland and help make your stay here
really memorable. I had such superb experiences when I was younger travelling and feel it'd be good to reciprocate. Back in the '70's I travelled a fair amount and managed to visit around 40 countries by the time I was 28. This included hitch hiking around South America on my own. Meeting fantastic people along the way was (still is!) a joy. My travelling now tends to be Scotland to London to visit our sons, with occasional trips to Europe.
"Treat people well" as you receive back in spades!
