We have just returned from our second stay at Clan Cottages. These cottages are fantastic and the surrounding views just amazing. We also seemed to have the best weather in the UK this last week as we had warm sunshine every day and only 1 brief shower of rain the whole week!

As the weather was wonderful we spent some time on the patio overlooking the river. Birdlife is wonderful and the ducks with babies a treat to see!

Fresh eggs from the hens that are truly free range was an absolute treat for breakfast.
John and Mary are wonderful hosts and really go the extra mile to ensure you have a super stay.

The cottages have everything you need and more with the extra touches being the Purdies luxury range of handwash and hand lotion and a wlecome pack of biscuits, wine and water on arrival.

When visiting this area also take advantage of the ferry day trip to Mull and Iona which is spectacular scenery. The Oban distillery was also a great place to visit.

We will be back soon as we can !


.

Room Tip: We stayed in cottage number 5 which is right on the river with back door and large patio.

We had a great 2 night break with our small child. The cottage was lovely and clean and very well equipped.

The shed with a selection of DVD's and some kids toys was great, our daughter loved playing with the doll's house.

Great location with being close enough to Oban to enjoy it's amenities but far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility and beautiful scenery.

We loved the fresh eggs from the owners, they were very much enjoyed.

We would definitely return!

I took my wife here for a quiet weekend away from Edinburgh in January 2012. We stayed for 3 nights in the MacKenzie Cottage. We had a fantastic time and will definitely return! John and Mary are the epitome of perfect hosts. They even brought us fresh eggs one morning! How incredibly sweet and thoughtful!

The cottage itself was immaculate and spacious. It is only minutes from Oban, which is convenient for a trip to the market or a nice dinner. But the environment is so nice at the cottage that you almost don't want to leave! If you do want to get out and about, however, the hiking in the immediate area is lovely and very scenic.

I give this stay a perfect, five-star rating and it deserves every bit of it! Thank you John and Mary for your exceptional service. We shall return!

We are so pleased you enjoyed your weekend. We love what we do here at Clan Cottages. The cottages are in a stunning location which we never take for granted. The birdlife around the cottages is fantastic and on a clear night the night sky is also amazing.

Thanks once again for your kind comments we hope you will return one day.

We stayed at Clan Cottages from 29th feb for 3 nights with the dog. The location is beautiful- right beside the loch and river- it couldnt get more scenic. We wanted to visit the west coast of Scotland but as we could only go for a short break we wanted to stay somewhere really lovely and we found it! We reckon this is the most lovely place to stay in Oban. The cottages have everything you could possibly want with lots of extra touches that make it special. Very spacious toverity all mod cons. Bottle of wine, biscuits, tea coffee and milk all awaiting us on arrival- great! All the little essentials are provided which really makes a difference - with gorgeous handmade organic hand cream and wash in all the bathrooms. Mary and John couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. A great place to stay very highly recommended. Just a shame we couldn't stay longer!

We stayed for 3 days and nights at these stunning cottages - we stayed in the MacDougall cottage which is so homely and comfortable we did not want to leave. The views are amazing, the scenery is breathtaking, the hospitality you will receive from John, Mary and family is exceptional - they truly go that extra mile to make you feel so special and that your stay will be enjoyable. We will definitely be back and will be recommending them to everyone.
