“Perfect location for exploring the area and no problems finding it.”
It was a 5 minute walk to the beach which had great rock clambering for our 5yo and also lovely clear water for paddling. The view from the living room is epic, some evenings we all just sat and watched the sun set and the changing light over Rum. Wonderful. We visited Glenfinnan, took a trip on the MV Sheerwater to Eigg, went to Mallaig for lunch and the Co-op (insanely busy there due to the steam train), walked around the Rhu peninsula (to the beach and back) and spent lots of time on the beaches, Traig beaches were our fave. Best lunch we found was at Arisaig Marina, best evening meal we had was at the Old Library (essential to book). As for the house, it had nearly everything we needed/expected. There were 2 stand out things we were a little disappointed with, one was the toilet paper supplied, for a 6 person house, only 2 rolls of paper in each bathroom, so watch out! Luckily it's only a 5 minute drive to the Spar at Arisaig. The other thing was the size of the towels, with such a lovely bathroom I would have loved a full size bath towel to wrap up in after a bath . Not so bad in the Summer, but would even more surely miss this for the colder seasons. Other than that the kitchen has everything we needed for cooking for a family, games, and table tennis was a fabulous addition. The TV was a godsend in the morning to allow the grown-ups to have a lay-in, very slow internet though, we couldn't get any of the streaming services working so glad we brought a bunch of DVDs with us. I noticed in the description it mentions the steam train stopping at Arisaig, we were told it does not stop at Arisaig, the last stop before Mallaig is Glenfinnan. It's also very unlikely you will be able to get on here as it's generally fully booked! You can hear the express from all over the place though, we heard it a couple of times from the beach.
LHH Response: We have asked the owner to supply bath sheets rather than bath towels. With regards to the toilet paper, we ask our owners to ensure there is a full roll in each bathroom as a starter. Guests are required to bring their own for the rest of the week.
