This cottage is beautiful with amazing views. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a big fridge-freezer to do a mainland shop and stock up for a week. Great rock pooling and fun beaches right on the doorstep so with children you don't have to go far. Cycling is great because the island isn't very hilly. Travel cot has additional mattress whichRead more makes a huge difference to baby comfort. Lovely garden with bench for al fresco dining. It is an idyllic place. Hide

Fantastic location, lovely property and very friendly locals.

The cottage is very well maintained with excellent facilities. It is very comfortable and warm with wood-burners in the kitchen and lounge. A minor issue was wi-fi didn't work for the duration of our stay. As there is no land-line and very poor mobile coverage (EE) we felt quite cut-off. I would say my main issue was a lack of private outdoor seatiRead moreng and that it directly over-looked a busy boat-yard. (over-priced) Hide

Stunning cottage in a magnificent location. The attention to detail was second to none (such as a pair of binoculars in each room looking out to the sea). Loved it!

Reviewed by Jacqueline 4th August 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. Having an enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. The views from the windows are stunning and the island is a perfect place to relax and unwind.

A well appointed very comfortable house with tasteful interior design. Furnishings of very high quality and comfort. Very peaceful surroundings with excellent views over the Firth of Lorne and many islands.

Reviewed by Sabra 22nd June 2018

Glasford is the perfect home for anyone seeking peaceful seclusion with stunning views across the Firth of Lorn, in a small but welcoming community. Wonderful sunsets and tantalising glimpses of seals are available from most windows (binoculars are provided!) and quiet slate and pebble beaches are within a few minutes stroll. The owners have thoughRead moret of everything to ensure a stay is as comfortable as possible, and we highly recommend this charming property. Hide

The cottage/house is terrific. The lounge is not quiet renovated like the rest of the house. I assume its on the cards. The rest of the house is a delight and very nicely renovated. The only problem was the view is very slightly spoiled by the small boat yard in front of the property!SELECTED!.!ENDOFSELECTED!
