“Perfect for family holiday”
Reviewed June 8, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had a very nice short break. The cottage has everything you need on a holiday. The location is meanutes away from Oban ferrys and well connected to other western Isles. We had a wonderfull relaxed holiday, the wellcome pack is much appreciated.

“Beautiful property in an amazing location. A wildlife haven.”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Alma Cottage is a beautiful property. Spacious, warm, with everything you could need. As well as loads of rabbits, we saw voles on a number of occasions, darting between the logs in the garden, and also a deer in the overgrowth opposite the cottage. It was so quiet in the garden, all that could be heard was the hum of the bees.
We were lucky with the weather. I can recommend a trip to the islands of Easdale (our favourite) or Luing on a nice day. We also did a 3 hour Sealife Adventure trip. We were disappointed not to see dolphins or porpoises. Probably the wrong time of year. We did see grey seals, common seals, sea eagles, golden eagles and deer. It was great to look back at the islands from the sea. A truly stunning area.
The jacuzzi bath was a real treat at the end of a busy day, and the welcome pack a lovely gesture.
We would love to return here, and recommend it wholeheartedly.

“Spacious, comfortable cottage.”
Reviewed May 22, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Lovely cottage on the Isle of Seil. Very comfortable and dog friendly. Wine and toiletries a welcoming touch. The owners, Jean and Dave were very friendly and phoned and visited to check everything was OK for us.
{ I recommend booking a trip with Sea Life Adventures, 5 mins down the road. It is run by Dave and Jean and they offer a 10% reduction in price for people staying at their cottages (They also let Atlantic Cottage on the island). They kindly arranged for a lass to look after our labrador dog while we were on the boat trip. A very reasonable charge and she was a lovely, competent young woman.}
Alma cottage has everything you could possibly need. We have no negatives whatsoever. Bed is very comfortable. Loads of storage space. Washing machine and dryer. Conservatory. I especially enjoyed all the rabbits in the garden early in the mornings! Great cycling and walking. Pub 5 mins walk down the road. Tigh an Truish by the Bridge over the Atlantic. Excellent real ales and pub grub. The Oyster Bar and Restaurant at Ellenabeich is just a few miles away. Great ales and lovely food. Both very welcoming and dog friendly. Recommend sitting outside at the Oyster Bar, beautiful views. Easy access to Easdale and Luing. We loved Luing and visited twice using the ferry from Seil. This cottage is central for all activities. There is a well stocked shop at Balvicar 2/3 miles away. Oban is only a 20 minute drive away. Highly recommended cottage we would love to stay again. A real home from home.

“Cosy cottage tucked away in glorious setting”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We wanted somewhere convenient for Oban but close enough to the stunning scenery and Alma Cottage is perfectly located. The cottage is tastefully decorated, cosy and very comfortable. The welcome gifts were very much appreciated. Our family had a lovely weekend exploring the area by day and relaxing in the cottage at night. We would recommend the cottage and would visit again.
