“Charming home from home”
Reviewed February 12, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Had a lovely comfortable stay in this cottage that provided everything needed to feel like home. Comfortable beds with lovely quality linen, lovely luxury bathroom with underfloor heating, great kitchen to cater for all your needs and comfortable living room with dining table. Even a lovely sitting area outside to enjoy on a lovely evening. All within easy walking distance to town centre, or a great base to explore the the beautiful surrounding area. I would definitely stay again!

“Great Week In Oban”
Reviewed November 15, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

3 of us stayed at Barcaldine Cottage for a week in November. Cosy, warm cottage, in a great location just south of the town centre. Great base to explore places like Easdale, Mull, Port Appin, Castle Stalker, and Kinlochleven. The welcome hamper was much appreciated, & packed with goodies. Well equipped with everything you would need, and would certainly recommend.

Lovely cottage which is very well equipped. A wonderful surprise when we arrived, the welcome basket was very much appreciated. Good location for visiting the Oban area. The owner Caroline was very prompt with emails etc I would highly recommend staying at Barcaldine Cottage.

“Comfortable and quiet”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The 2 bedroom bungalow is located in a quiet area. It is very clean and has everything that is needed for a comfortable holiday. However we travelled to Oban by train and the location of the bungalow was at least 30 minutes walk up a steep hill just off a busy A road. We are keen walkers and we also hired cycles but the long walk up the hill at the end of each day proved problematic especially if we wanted to go back into Oban for an evening meal. So if you are without a car you need to have this information. There was a bus service but with restrictions at certain times of the day.I would only recommend this property to older travellers if they have a car.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you found the cottage very clean and comfortable, something all our guests have commented on. As you mentioned the cottage is located in a quiet area which is just on the edge of town. This aspect of the cottage has proved popular with many of our guests but I appreciate that it's all down to personal preference. The property description does advise that it is a 20 minute walk (4 minutes by car) into town, downhill going, uphill returning. Hope you continue to enjoy holidaying in Scotland.
