LocationStrachur

The small village of Strachur is located on the shore of Loch Fyne, on the north west edge of the Cowal Peninsula. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the village is ideal for exploring the local walks. Glenbranter Forest, part of the greater Argyll Forest Park, has a number of walking and cycling routes, including the Launder Walk. If you are visiting the village, stop by the Strachur Smiddy Museum, a small exhibition, displaying the tools of the traditional blacksmith trade. 

Argyllshire

Argyllshire is one of the larger of the Scottish counties. Located in the west, Argyll incorporates the coastline and isles between the Mull of Kintyre up to Ardnamurchan. The area’s biggest attraction is its immense range of landscapes; with miles of rugged cliffs and mountainous highland scenery to discover, as well as beautiful woodlands, the area is a dream destination for nature lovers. Why not visit the magnificent volcanic rock island of Staffa, where the puffins make their summer home? Or join the Beaver Trail to spot the elusive mammal recently reintroduced to the area. You could also take in the Gulf of Corryvreckan on the island at Jura, the third largest natural whirlpool in the world! Island hopping tours are a great way to discover the isles of Argyll, and for keen walkers, the mountainous landscapes of the likes of Ardgour, and the westerly range of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park are well worth a visit. Towns to take in include Oban, a resort town nestled on the Firth of Lorn; Dunoon, home to the famous Cowal Highland Gathering, an annual highland games; and Campbeltown, the county’s historic centre for whisky, fishing and ship-building.  

Highlands and Islands

This region takes in Inverness-shire, Ross-shire, Sutherland, Caithness and the islands include the Inner and Outer Hebrides as well as Orkney and the Shetland islands. For spectacular scenery the Highlands of Scotland provides some of the best, with a huge expanse of area full of mountains, lochs and glens full of romance, wildlife and scenic beauty. The heritage of this area includes Culloden, taking the ferry to the Isle of Skye or just taking in one of the many castles like Eilean Donan. There is also an immense range of wildlife to be found.

Reviews

Feefo is an independent feedback service used by Scotts Castle Holidays to give you an opportunity to see how other guests feel about this property.

15th November 2016 Excellent 

Very well equipped, clean, tastefully decorated and furnished property.

Service rating : Many thanks for your lovely comments regarding our service and glad to hear you also found the information helpful that we provided prior to your holiday. 

Product : So nice to hear you enjoyed the stay in this lovely seaside cottage, we hope to hear from you again in the future!

23rd September 2016 Bad 

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.

Service rating : 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.

24th July 2013 Excellent 

Exceeded expectations with regard to equipment etc - only downside was the rather grubby-looking sofa and possibly the lack of a non-slip mat in the downstairs bathroom - my husband cannot climb stairs easily and therefore we had the downstairs twin room. As he also cannot get down into, and up out of, a bath he needed to use the overhead shower in the bath downstairs which was very slippery!

Great that you found our service to be helpful and had a lovely time at Drimdarroch Farmhouse! I shall pass your comments onto the owner, feedback is always much appreciated.

If you would like any future help with plans, please don't hesitate to get in touch and claim your Loyalty Discount. (T&C's apply)
