“Explore Wild Scotland!”

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Alma Cottage. It is ideally located on the Isle of Seil, with beautiful views just around the corner. The cottage itself has everything one would need: A modern kitchen, spacious living room with a fire place and an exciting garden for kids to play or just to sit out and enjoy weather. It has 2 large bedrooms and can sleep 4 comfortably. There is a pub called Tigh an Truish (house of trousers) just down the road, which has delicious, traditional food and weekly entertainment. There is also a supermarket close by for having cosy nights in by the fire. We often ventured into Oban which is only 20 minutes away and has great nightlife and lots of places to eat.

One of my favourite things about Seil was the incredible wildlife. One morning we got up early and were able to see otters down by the water just outside! Oh and if you decide to visit in the Autumn like we did, watch out for deer on the road, they are everywhere for the rut season! Sealife Adventures is a wildlife tour company that does amazing trips around the inner Hebridean islands and out to the Corryvrecken whirlpool. We were lucky enough to see bellowing deer, sea eagles, golden eagles, porpoises, dolphins and grey seals (and their fluffy white pups!!) during our time there! I honestly can't wait to come back in the summer to see the whales!

We stayed in Alma Cottage this Autumn and loved it! The cottage is spacious, really well equipped and has a great garden to explore. The kitchen is modern and has everything you could need, with a great log burner in the cosy living room. Keep some binoculars handy when you're on the second floor, we saw birds of prey and deer from the windows up there! Oban is only 20 minutes away and has tons of places to eat, but the island has two pubs and we ate in the one by the bridge a few times.

If you're into wildlife then Seil Island is a great place to stay. We saw otters, seals and a huge variety of seabirds from the island. If you visit the area make sure you take a wildllife cruise and a visit over to Mull too, these were the highlights of our trip! We saw sea eagles, golden eagles, lots of porpoise, seal pups and the start of the red deer rut.

We'll definitely stay in Alma cottage again if we're back in the area.
