Beautiful, relaxing and refreshing

Smashing view from cottage over Loch Awe
The cottage was clean and nicely decorated. The kids enjoyed the Sealife Centre and a pony ride. We explored a bit and found some nice beaches. We all enjoyed the good weather and the delicious shortbread!

I thought you might like to know how very much we have enjoyed our stay at
The house exeeded all my expectations, very comfortable and extremely well
equipped in the kitchen and lots of lovely crockery, and the garden (filled
with little birds!) was an enormous bonus for me as I love a good garden.
The setting is just amazing-we couldn't get enough of the ever changing
views over the loch, the soaring of the buzzards over the fields and the
pippistrelle bats in the evening. We also enjoyed the peaceful tranquility
of the fields and cows at the back when we had our meals and the sound of
the water running down the hill.
We had some great walks, and took the opportunity to explore the area. My
husband has part Campbell ancestry, so it was interesting to see where they
originally came from. Their life must have been very dire to leave so
beautiful an area.
One day we took the boat to Mull and went on to look at Staffa and Iona, and
we thought that area is worth coming back to as well.
Thanks also for the shortbread biscuits which went down a treat. I have
copied the recipe to try at home.
