Fantastic short holiday in Ardnamurchan

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a few days at the Byre - just enough to see some of the main highlights - Ardnamurchan lighhouse, Sanna beach, Glenborrodale, Ben Hiant. Only had one rainy day out of three, which cleared up later on. The cottage is very comfortable for two, with a wood burning stove and freeview TV. We had a nice welcome from Jacqui and John. Kilchoan is a in a good location with the ferry to Mull. If you are lucky with the weather (!) it is a great place to visit.

A Lovely Holiday !

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at The Byre. Near the end of the most twisting, narrow, but beautiful road you can imagine, miles from anywhere. Lovely welcome from John and Jackie, the log stove lit with smoke coming out of the chimney made us feel at home straight away. Lovely cottage, the limited headroom in the bedroom, and the shower, take a bit of getting used to, but the sense of peace and being away from it all make up. If you don't like being away from everything, there is TV, video, and broadband:- and only a mile from the ferry to Tobermory. Book the boat trip to Lunga and Staffa, take the car to Tobermory, drive to the other end of Mull and visit Iona - there and back in the day is easily possible. And make sure you go to Sanna beach - one of the most beautiful and empty beaches we've ever seen. Don't panic about the weather or the midges - weather was fantastic and it was too breezy for midges!

A relaxing week away in Kilchoan

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Byre. It was cosy, comfortable and very peaceful. Being woken by sheep was a far cry from city living! The Byre had everything we needed, including a bath the size of a swimming pool, and a beautiful sun trap garden with stunning views. Seeing the seals out in the bay John directed us to was a highlight! We'd happily recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet time away.
