“Great accomodation in a lovely situation for a family holiday”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Despite mixed weather we had a lovely family week at Craig-an-Fhithich. This is a large and very comfortable family house with extensive gardens. Bedrooms and the three bathrooms were all generous in size with plenty of storage. The log burner in the lounge was easy to use and gave a very cosy feel to the cooler evenings and the dining room has lovely views across the Loch if you are eating in. The situation of the house is beautiful, at the edge of the lovely Loch Melfort in one of the most stunning areas of Scotland. There was plenty to do nearby and further afield and we used the ferries to Mull and other smaller islands amongst other trips. Arduaine Gardens, just a few miles south of the house, were well worth a visit and free to National Trust members. We had a fantastic boat trip from Croabh Haven with Jenny Wren Cruises which we would all recommend very highly. There was also a useful and good value takeaway menu prepared at the Melfort Village timeshare complex, a mile down the road. So much to do and so many places well worth seeing that we will hopefully return to this part of Scotland in the future.

Thank you for your comments and useful information. We are pleased that you managed to get out and about. The Arduaine Gardens is a must for gardeners and is good for a stroll in every season.

“Creag an Fhithich a gem of a place to stay”
Reviewed May 11, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

We have been holidaying in the area for the last 14 years,but the last two years have been the best by far due solely to the fact that we were staying at Creag-an-Fhithich. On leaving each morning to visit places like Tayvallich to Fort William and onwards to Mallaig via the Jacobite train all truly wonderful places to see we couldn't wait to get back to sit in the beautiful garden and take in the view down Loch Melfort to Scarba. In the evening it was a treat eating in the dining room and looking out to the bay. Wood peckers at the back door otters out the front Creag-an-Fhithich is a gem of a place to stay. Roll on next year.

We are delighted that you managed to ride on the Jacobite train to Mallaig. It is a real treat. Pleased too that you enjoyed your second visit to Creag-an-Fhithich and that you could enjoy the good weather and take in the views and wildlife. The red squirrel is secretly eating the peanuts! Hope you will be back here very soon.

“Lovely house at an amazing place!”
Reviewed May 2, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Thanks Denise and Donald for having us in your beautiful house. It is cosy, quiet, beautiful view, spacious, and a great location for trips to Oban, Isle of Mull, Fort William. For us it was the first time in Scotland, and we fell a bit in love with your country thanks to you.
The swift reactions on a few issues we had with towels and the toilet were very pleasant and showed you are real hosts.

“Great Loch side property”
Reviewed March 23, 2017 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed here in Sumer last year. It was a great venue for a get together. We chartered a boat from Oban, went golfing on the Isle of Luing and fishing on the surrounding lochs. It was a great few days and we would definitely reccomend it.

“Welcoming family home on the shores of the loch”
Reviewed January 15, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed for a week in January to celebrate my 60th birthday with four adult children with spouses and partners and one grandchild. The house is spacious with a generous living room with space for several simultaneous activities.

The house has stunning views out over the loch, which is literally 50 feet from the front door. One daughter and son in law swam on new years day.

The narrow road down the peninsular is ideal for a four mile run and there is a walk with wide west coast views at the end as well as a nice short circular walk half way down and some interesting paths behind the house.

The local hotel is friendly and its bar as cosy and welcoming as you could find anywhere in the world. It is less than half an hour drive to Oban which has ferries to Mull and elsewhere.

It was a lovely staying in the winter (the weather was kind - sunny and cold apart from a couple of says of drizzle) but I would return to see it in the summer.

Highly recommended
Maggie

We are glad that you had a good time and that the house was a suitable base for all your activities. Swimming in the loch at New Year was brave and, no doubt, very refreshing! We hope to see you again in the summer when the water is slightly warmer.

“A fantastic Xmas holiday”
Reviewed December 31, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed here for a week over Christmas and had a fantastic time. The house had every thing you could need an more. Beds were comfy and clean. The local shop which is minutes away sold every thing u could need, but Tesco delivered our food for the week, which was fantastic.
The owners were very approachable and helpful.
We had two children who loved our trip too. The weather was good for us, so some fishing in the loch and lots of walks with the dogs. Would definitely be recommending it and would like to see melford in the summer.
