“Location and Vibe in Drumalban”
Reviewed 7 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

After receiving a warm welcome, we enjoyed a fortnight of bliss in the well designed and thoughtfully prepared Drumalban. Appreciate the evolving daily weather and vista whilst improving log fire making skills. Friendly locals add to the fresh air experience and stunning landscape.

“Superb house Superb location”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent a lovely few days here last week, the weather was variable but the house is so comfortable it didn't really matter. The view down the loch from the dining area is spectacular and really relaxing. Everything is here, we were a small group of older people but I think for children and larger families it would be bliss, very safe large rambling garden and lots to do in the house, they have thought of everything. The track had recently, two days before! Been tarmacced and was lovely to drive on, I had had visions of a rutted farm track but it was really good. The only thing I could fault was a slightly disconcerting noise when flushing the downstairs loo, don't do it at night unless you want to wake the house up! All in all a great experience and highly recommended. The manager Kirsty was superb too, great communications and house instructions.

“Beautiful house in a perfect setting”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Our party of five adults, four children, and one dog had a marvellous time here. The house is beautifully designed, with a large open plan living space that was perfect for our family get-together. The view of Loch Craignish from the house is stunning, and changes constantly with the weather. And for the days when the weather was not so good, a log fire soon had everyone feeling cosy.

“Great house, Great Location!”
Reviewed 13 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Loved staying at house, big space for large groups. second time staying and hopefully many more. There has been an upstairs bathroom put in which is lovely and was well needed. The house is in the most perfect setting. Downstairs bathroom in need of serious upgrade - none of us used this., En-suite is ok but is looking tired and needs upgraded. Rugs are tired and need replaced if not removed (that said there was a new living room carpet being fitted as we left) however rugs still smell of dogs. Utility cupboards need organising and dry foods need to be thrown away for guests arriving as it is not nice on arriving to see old goods in cupboards out of date. fridge shelves should be wiped down for guests arriving, silly things like washing machine drawer all blocked up , and some of the outside drains blocked. in general some of the house needs a deeper clean, that said I am particularly fussy. However I would most definently go back again, and would still recommend to my fussiest of friends the house is beautiful and has big stunning windows creating a lot of light The manager Kirsty was professional to deal with and was extremely kind to allow us to come and go with times of arrival and departure.

“A 60th Birthday”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed on the cottage for my dad's 60th birthday and it was just the perfect place to celebrate. The cottage itself is amazing very warm, comfortable and has everything you could ever possibly need. The view is also very special! We were very lucky with the weather for October so managed to spend an afternoon in the garden which was lovely.

The open plan layout inside is perfect for large groups/parties as even the person cooking didnt feel left out. It is also large enough so that you do not all feel on top of each other. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, we cooked a huge joint of beef along with all the trimmings!

The bedrooms are also very comfortable and the three bathrooms are very handy with a larger group.

We could not fault this cottage at all!!! Absolutly perfect!
