“Comfortable, cosy apartment”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The house interior was spacious in the living areas, with comfortable lounge furniture. The underfloor heating took a bit of figuring out, but once up and running, added to the cosy comfort.

Main bed a bit small, but good quality.

Outside space nicely secluded, the fire pit was fun and kept the midgies at bay in the evening.

It's easy to travel out from the rental and eg t to some stunning locations.

We enjoyed our stay.

“Very nice house on a beautiful island”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The islands of Seil and Luing are beautiful, and easily accessed from Oban via the atlantic bridge. The Granary is a very house, well equiped, and can accomodade 4 persons in perfect confort. We recommend the post office/general store 100 meters from the house.

“Beautiful house and location”
Reviewed June 16, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We only had a brief stay at the Granary but it was lovely. Really nice location and a beautiful home. The rooms where spacious and when we arrived we had a nice bottle of red wine waiting for us. We had a little bit of rain but the garden certainly looked nice to sit in. I would recommend The Granary if you are visiting the west coast of Scotland. Great place for bike rides around the island and a great place to stay if visiting Oban. We will hopefully visit again in the near future. Simon.

“Fantastic-Home from home”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

As soon as we arrived we felt like we were at home, the cottage is beautiful. It has everything you could wish for, and the scenery is breath taking. The locals are very friendly and the food at the pub near the Atlantic bridge is highly recommended. While there we travelled to Fort William, Inverary and Oban. We took our children on a mini cruise from Oban to Isle of Mull, they loved it. We will certainly highly recommend the Granary to friends and family and will certainly come back again, we did not want to leave.

“Home from home with beautiful scenery”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What a wonderful location for our honeymoon. The Isle of Seil is a beautiful piece of the West Coast of Scotland just a short drive south of Oban. The Granary is perfect inside with a lovely garden and picturesque views from the front. The cottage is brilliantly equipped with everything needed to make a holiday comfortable whatever the weather - lovely for the duration of our stay. The location is tranquil and would definitely appeal to those seeking peace and quiet. My wife and I are both birdwatchers and the Isle and surrounding coastline offers plenty of wildlife with Mull and its eagles a short ferry crossing from Oban.

“Gorgeous house, spectacular location with great local amenities.”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved this place. The house is really cosy and comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen. The surrounding countryside is idyllic. We would certainly stay there again. My husband and I stayed there, my sister had the second bedroom and a friend slept on the very comfortable sofa bed. There was plenty of space for us all. Super place and lovely part of Scotland.
