The cottage is situated a few meters away from the sea and two of three bedrooms have seaview. There is a road behind the house but it was used very little when we stayed there. In fact, the cottage is a quiet place close to nature. It is well equipped and spacious. But the house needs renovation. It is obvious that it once has been loved. There are underwater pictures on the wall taken by the owners and other individual items, which show this was once a home, not just a cottage for rent. But for the price asked, it should be in a better overall condition. Conclusion: Five stars for the location, three for the cottage, this makes four stars in total. We enjoyed staying at the cottage, we would have loved it if it was in a better condition.
Another fabulous week on the Isle of Seil in the most perfect location we've stayed at over the last 4 years!
The accommodation although a tad dated was great for the family, had 8 people staying for 2 nights. It really had everything we needed for our stay and felt very home from home.....So much so my youngest boy is adamant our home is not his house and he wants the other house!
The views from the living room are breathtaking, no seals or otters seen but grouse, hedgehogs, sheep, cows & birds of prey .
Two most perfect rainbows seen over the Atlantic and a sky at night that twinkled like millions of fairy lights.
The rocks and ocean at the bottom of the garden are what makes this a place you want to return to and we will.
We have just returned from a great family break here. The setting is idyllic and we loved sitting looking out the window at the amazing view. The kids loved exploring down at the rocks. Thanks to Jean and David for the lovely bottle of wine it was really appreciated.
The best holliday cottage we`ve ever stayed, peacefull surroundings, but amazing view at the wild sea! Cozy bedrooms, clean, warm, nice ambient. Good starting point for walks around the island. Hoping to come back.
Abolsutely fantastic place! The cottage is amazing and very spacious with plenty of land if you have kids. We enjoyed it that much we paid for an extra night. Will definitely be returning
Four of us, two adults and two children, stayed in Atlantic Bay for two nights in October 2016.
The best thing about the house, for me at least, are the sea views, which are phenomenal. The floor-to-ceiling windows afford uninterrupted views of the Firth of Lorne and Atlantic Ocean beyond, a seascape that's doted with small rocky islands including Belnahua, Fladda, Eilean Dubh Mhor and Scalasaig.
The house is warm, dry and well-equipped. The main living area and main bedroom are both very spacious and decorated with wildlife photographs taken by the owners, who live nearby.
We were lucky enough to see an otter swimming just offshore, and on the shore immediately in front of the house, on both the mornings we were there.
