“Enjoy the magic!”

Have to mention the weather because we didn't get one drop of rain, just gloriously sunny for the week, which made a magical holiday in the forest. The local village, Dalavich, is so pretty and accessible by foot from the cabins. We used the local bus service to Oban for a day out, very easy service to use and staff very helpful. The community centre and the village shop and cafe have very friendly staff, full English breakfasts available from the cafe...brilliant!! The forest walks and tracks are well signposted, the views of Loch Awe and Loch Avich are truly breathtaking. There are red deer, red squirrels, pine martens, ospreys, buzzards, woodland birds, ravens, sparrowhawks among the oak, pines and silver birch. The foresters are active with logging, large piles of logs ready for collection to Europe and for fuel etc. There are boats for hire across the Loch to visit various castles. Kilmartin which lies south is well worth a visit, it has the oldest pre-historic site in Europe. The Cabin is cosy and comfortable, but the bathroom could be a bit tricky for maneuvering if you happen to be six feet tall!! The cabin contains all the necessary equipment and items for a stay. Beware of the midge....best to try and make friends with them...if you can!

Hi Yanina & thanks for your review.
You seem very much to have enjoyed your stay, just a little confused why we only got a 3 / 5 score however.

Regards, David

Ideal location for a quiet retreat nothing but birds squirrels and trees you can see the other cabins around but most of our time we didn't see anyone the cabin offers a unique and quirky lay out with everyday essentials situated ideally for day trips

“Cosy cabin in fantastic location”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a wonderful holiday in this well furnished cabin. The children loved the triple bunkbeds and watching wildlife from the balcony. Countless things to do in the area, walks, ruined castles to explore, pre-historic landscape.

“fun at the forrest”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Myself, husband, 9 and 13 year old children stayed at strae cabin for a few nights. The cabin was surprisingly cosy and despite being compact, it was incredibly well designed. The children loved the sleeping arrangements: one room had three bunks in it, making full use of the cabin' s height space and our teenager was delighted to find and claim the almost hidden bunk in the roof space. We had plenty wholesome family fun: fishing, attempting to make a camp fire, tracking each other in the forrest, erecting a hammock in a sunny forrest clearing, shore side walks and plenty exploring. We were very fortunate with the weather and Loch Awe is absolutely breathtakingly and peaceful. We returned home very much relaxed and contented.

“A really good stay”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had a great time at this cabin, it's very compact and just right for two people with everything we could need. Very warm and comfortable.
Set back in the woods it was wonderfully quiet and the wildlife was superb everything from Tree-creepers to a pine-martin.
If I had to make one criticism it would be the couch has had its day..
We'll definitely return.

Thanks very much for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay.

I've had a look at couch and even though it's less than a year old, you're quite right, it appears to have lost its spring a little. I have ordered a new one today, which will be delivered in a couple of days.

Hopefully we'll see you again soon and you'll be more comfy on new sofa.
