Our guests can be gorgeous. This was totally unexpected. Posted in My Cottage Holiday earlier this month.
MY COTTAGE HOLIDAY
Cottage Name: 3 Bayview
All we can say is WOW! We have just come back from four wonderful days in this lovely little cottage! Everything was perfect, from the comfy beds to the glorious scenery. The area is minutes away from Glencoe and beautiful Glen Etive. Yet it is also a great base for touring further afield to Oban, Fort William, Helensburgh, Loch Lomond and Loch Awe. Also the drive up to Loch Ness and Inverness,or over to Stirling. Gorgeous scenery is everywhere.
We can also recommend the wonderful craft shop, 'Crafts and Things', which is just up the road from the cottage. Please go in the coffee bar there and don't forget to try the apple pie! Gorgeous views over the sleepy loch, mist kissing the sea and cuddling the mountains. We woke up to that every morning. Romantic? You betcha!
Super warm cottage, fully fitted kitchen and I loved the fact that I could put a wash on! Look out of the bathroom every morning, and see a mountain with even a little waterfall right at the top! What more could we ask, and so reasonably priced too!
It's the best holiday We've ever had. Book it! Plenty to do whatever the time of year. Rain doesn't spoil this kind of scenery-the sky has a bright hue whatever the weather.
There's a big file of things to do to peruse as soon as you arrive! The owner is really helpful too and sends lots of information to you on booking. Go to Glen Etive, we've had close encounters with beautiful deer and other wildlife, and the scenery is indescribably beautiful. Just amazing. Altogether a completely wonderful experience! We returned home relaxed and refreshed. We will definitely be booking this delightful cottage again!
