    We very much enjoyed staying in the house. It had a wonderful peaceful location with a beautiful outlook. We found the house to be cosy, comfortable and very well equipped. We enjoyed having the wood burning stove in the lounge and it was a pleasure to cook in the kitchen with the view out to the Loch. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals or baking and we even had apple crumble using apples from the tree in the garden. The trains didn't bother us at all. The only thing that would have made it better would have been a shower in the upstairs bathroom
  • Marie Reid
    Rhunacairn was ideal for our holiday. On the loch side, about a mile off the road it was the ideal location to re-charge our batteries. The children were in the loch every day(wearing wetsuits) while the adults could supervise safely either from the large garden or the kitchen windows when it was raining! The dogs had the run of the garden which suited them perfectly. The house was bright and comfortable and although we had concerns with regards to the proximity to the railway line before we arrived, the trains did not affect our break in the slightest. On the occasions that we could tear the children away from the water the was lots to do nearby such as the sea life centre, Inverawe smokery, Bonawe iron works, Oban itself and Inverary Jail, which was well worth the 40 minute drive each way to visit. All in all a very relaxing holiday, with the option to do as much or as little as you want. We would definitely return.
  • Chris
    Thank you for our most wonderful stay at Rhunacairn. My two young daughters and Bob the dog had an amazing time at the cottage. Everything was perfect and we could not have asked for more. The gentleman who owned the cottage was also very obliging and we would not hesitate in further to recommend your website and the cottage to others. We will definitely book with you again in the future

    A very comfortable and tastefully restored cottage in a stunning location. The property feels more like a proper home than a holiday rental.

    Perfect place for peace, quiet and tranquility. Sit and watch the local wildlife pass by - eagle, otter, cormorants, gannets and many more animals.

    2009 will be the 40th anniversary of family holidays at Rhunacairn. We are now into our third generation. This is the most perfect place for a holiday ... but don't tell anyone else!
  • No name
    Beautiful location on the lochside. Great fun mucking about on inflatable kayaks. Easy walking from the cottage. beautiful fishing in the Black Lochs. My 10 yr old daughter caught her first trout.
