    “This is a beautiful cottage in the most perfect setting, and we absolutely loved our stay here.”

    The facilities provided were fantastic, and the log burner fire made it extra cosy in the evenings. We were here for a week and managed to fit in a boat trip in Oban, trips to local castles (a tour from Alex at Dunollie Castle is a must), Easdale Island and Glenfinnan Viaduct near Fort William, with all of these being within reasonable travel distance.

    The facilities provided were fantastic, and the log burner fire made it extra cosy in the evenings. We were here for a week and managed to fit in a boat trip in Oban, trips to local castles (a tour from Alex at Dunollie Castle is a must), Easdale Island and Glenfinnan Viaduct near Fort William, with all of these being within reasonable travel distance. There are a couple of points that we wanted to raise, not necessarily as criticism but as genuine feedback to make it even better. The main thing is the main bed, which felt like a small double - for a cosy stay a king size bed would have suited the master bedroom much more. Although we went just as a couple we both said that the bedroom with the bunk beds off of the utility room wouldn’t be suitable, in our eyes, for young children, purely from a security side of things given that it’s by the main entrance with two doors between here and the rest of the household. We would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful break away, with the option to be as busy (or not) as you want to be.

The property

Nestled on the shoreline of the sea loch, Loch Etive, Rhunacairn is a traditional, stone built detached holiday cottage in a peaceful and picturesque place. The owner's woodland garden at Achnacloich is open to the public on Saturdays only, but can be visited by arrangement if Achnacloich House does not have tenants. The cottage has a most serene outlook across the loch to the hills beyond and is situated down a no-through, single track road. Fishing can be arranged and boat hire is available on Loch Etive from www.tfcboats.com Oban, just 9 miles away, is an attractive Victorian fishing port with a superb setting and a large number of activities for all the family to enjoy. Known as the 'Gateway to the Isles', Oban offers many boat trips providing a variety of excursions, near and far. For example, a day trip to the sacred Isle of Iona is easily achievable. There are all manner of seaborne activities to enjoy and day or week long tuition readily available from Oban. Full details of what can be enjoyed from a wide range of activities available (sailing, diving, riding, golf, climbing, hill-walking, distillery visits, whale and dolphin watching, castles) can all be obtained from the Oban Tourist Information Centre. Brochures will be available in the cottage itself. The house is a perfect shoreline retreat but close to many activities and an attractive and vibrant town. A homely, comfortable cottage to return to completes the day. The Glasgow to Oban railway runs to the rear of the garden and is securely fenced. The earliest train is 05.30 and the latest 21.00.
