Another fabulous stay at Rowan Cottage
Second time we have stayed in this property and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday again. Fabulous location and everything you could wish for a chilled holiday. Excellent space inside and out and adore the spectacular views from the decking area. Will definitely be back. Owners and Ian from Argyll Self Catering Holidays are superb - thank you once again.
Truly a home from home, cozy fires and everything you need for a magnificent stay and a short stroll to amazing Kames hotel where you will find an amazing restaurant.
