I stayed at North Lodge for three nights - a key advantage as most self-catering accept only 7 night bookings. Located in the tiny hamlet of Ford, the cottage is well-placed for exploring the rich archaeological sites around Kilmartin Glen and the beautiful nature reserves of Knapdale, Taynish and Moine Mhor.
The useable space within the cottage consists of only the ground floor as the upper two rooms are devoted to storage and a children's bedroom. Therefore the accommodation is only suitable for a maximum of 2 people or an individual. Despite the small size and low levels of natural light (due to dense surrounding tree cover) the cottage is very comfortable and well appointed with a decent kitchen, wood burning stove and TV/DVD/Wi Fi. A babbling stream flows past the garden with a seating area, and the cottage has a private and tranquil aspect. Thoroughly recommend this spot as a quiet getaway.
