Description

With much more than a fine view overlooking Loch Fyne, this is the ideal venue to get away from it all, spend some quality time with family and friends, and just relax.

This beautifully converted farmhouse is a perfect choice for a family holiday. The large open plan living and dining area, is a spacious comfortable room, with TV/DVD player and selection of board games, to keep everyone entertained. The modern kitchen is well equipped and ideal for your catering needs. A bunk bedroom and a twin bedroom are on the ground floor, with two double bedrooms upstairs, accommodating up to 8 people.

There is a small area of lawn to the side and front, which is all enclosed, and then there are fields and a walk of approx. 500 metres to get to the loch. Set in its own grounds, this delightful large holiday cottage is ideal for a family holiday or those wishing to base themselves within this popular west coast section of Scotland.

  • Reception Rooms
    The living space is a sitting room, dining room and kitchen all rolled into this open plan room, which at one end has floor to roof windows, which enjoys magnificent views across Loch Fyne. With a TV in the corner of the room, there are two three-seat sofas and two armchairs in this section of the room. There is access out to the patio area from this end of the room to a sheltered area, where in the summer months it will be very pleasant sitting out here to enjoy the views.

    Kitchen & Dining
    The dining section is in the middle of the room with pine table and matching chairs that will seat 8 people comfortably. The kitchen section forms a U-shape and is very well equipped and designed for holiday usage. With a work-island and work tops in black granite, there is plenty of space to prepare all your meals. The cooker is a modern stainless steel gas range, which will cater for this number with ease, whilst there is also a dishwasher and upright fridge/freezer. The utility room to the rear of the house houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.

Very nice house, the building, contents and fitments were all of the highest quality. Locations was excellent and the little touches (like dishwasher tablets and oils/spices in the kitchen) made it even better.

Great to hear you enjoyed this holiday house and found the it furnished to a high standard, it
sounds like you all had a brilliant time overall.

I wouldn't use Scotts Castle holidays again, they needed to full amount paid a long way in advance of the holiday, I asked about the possibility of an early check in at the time of booking and was told they would check and come back to me, this never happened and they denied having offered this directing me to contact the owner directly. I had to contact Scotts to get my GHD refunded and it took more than the stated 7 days.

Many thanks for your review, all feedback is taken on board so we may improve our services where possible.   As indicated at enquiry stage, a 30% deposit is required to commence your contract with owners and the balance within 8 weeks of the holiday start.  We also offer an option to make installments until the balance due date.  

We can see that you used this facility throughout the build up to your holiday and hope this helped your group.It’s difficult for owners to confirm an early arrival in advance, particularly for back to back bookings during peak times as large properties do take this amount of time to prepare between lets.  We noted your request for an early check in with owners at the booking stage, and asked you recheck nearer to the start date, unfortunately they can only confirm the standard check in time until much nearer to the holiday date, as being on site they are in the best position, who can gauge how long the house preparation will take between lets.

I’ve checked your GHD refund and this was actioned within the expected time frame, when the office reopened on Monday morning, I’m am not sure if there has been a processing delay with bankers, and am sorry if this cause a delay.

Great to see you had a nice time at the cottage.
