Family at a Beach

Angus & Family

We came on holiday as a family of 4 and stayed in Rose cottage which is the downstairs flat with two bedrooms.  The kids loved the bunkbeds.  It has everything you need for a wonderful stay and the garden is great as it has a small stream for the kids to play in. Peter & Sai are wonderful host and were very helpful recommending places to visit.  Within a short drive there is an excellent beach with white sand.  Nice pubs and places to eat and the shoreline of Loch Fyne with Castles and great wildlife. Loads to do with the kids rain or shine.  Would love to return.

Happy Family

Andy & Family

Great place to explore this area of Scotland. Fab hosts and great accommodation.  We really like the eco and green policies that Pete & Sai are using in the business and I know they more plans in the future.  We enjoyed a day trip to Bute which is a 10 min drive then a very short ferry crossing.  Inverary was nice for the castle and Jail.  



I came to Glendaruel and Cowal for a relaxing stay and to photograph the wildlife in the area.  I was not disappointed.  Great location for wildlife watching and photography.  the accommodation is very comfortable and has been recently refurbished to a high standard.  Will be back next time for a longer stay.
