Convenient studio accommodation with adjoining kitchen and shower-room. Centrally located in the picturesque lochside village of Blairmore. The view from this accommodation is superb. We enjoyed a memorable week walking, fishing, visiting nearby gardens and taking a brief cruise along loch Long on the Waverley paddle steamer that calls in once a week during the summer months at the Blairmore pier. The Blairmore pier is only a few metres from this rental. My wife and I enjoyed a comfortable, peaceful and very refreshing holiday. We can thoroughly recommend the Old Post Office, Blairmore.
The lead up to my visit was promising. Promptly answered and always helpful email correspondence with answers to the questions posed and reassuring information every time. Upon arrival, we were met by the delightful owners Stephen and Sylvia and the accommodation was explained and keys handed over. The accommodation is cosy and with almost everything you’ll need for a comfortable self-catering holiday. It was spotless too which is good. I would commend this place without hesitation and congratulate the owners on the pride and care taken to ensure everything within their powers is fulfilled to the highest possible standards. Visiting Pucks Glen and Benmore gardens and its cafe were highlights out of so many!
A very well decorated and maintained small, ground floor flat. One room for sitting/sleeping, watching TV with 2 lounge chairs, double bed, small dining table, small wardrobe. A nice kitchen with enough good utensils, small fridge/freezer, dishwasher, cooker/oven. Small shower room/toilet. Outside utility room with a washer and dryer in. Well heated, lovely bed and chairs. Great views out the large main window on the loch and the dawn. Secure and safe, friendly and helpful neighbours, parking right outside. Bus stop opposite if needed. Hillsides and wild country just a couple of miles away, small town 6 miles away with supermarket, cinema etc, great pub 15 mins walk away for food etc - The Strone Inn. Great place to explore the Argyll and Bute area. You won't be disappointed staying here, lovely place, well worth the money. Only fault I could make, if I had to pick one, is the lack of storage like a chest or drawers or something although there are drawers under the bed. Quiet, beautiful area, people leave their doors open. Owners are nearby but leave you completely alone to enjoy your stay. I recommend the Old Post Office and I'm hard to please.
The accommodation was very comfortable with all we needed. Views fantastic and surrounding area so beautiful. we felt refreshed and rested and definitely not disappointed in our choice of The Old Post Office. Thank you to Stephen and Sylvia for their warm welcome.

We had a great stay at the old post office.
We can only think of positive things to say.
From the first meeting with Stephen & Sylvia, who were there to meet us, they were very helpful and a lovely couple, very friendly and explained everything to us.
The Studio is lovely, clean, warm and very comfortable, everything you could wish for for a peaceful holiday.
The view is to die for, couldn`t be nearer the loch, we spent most of the time we were in the studio sitting on the window seat watching the ever changing scenes on the loch.
Would we stay there again? yes!!
We are already planning to go again next year.
My partner and I stayed at The Old Post Office in Blairmore for a week and found it to be a perfect little base. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything you could possibly need (all utensils, kitchen appliances, washing machine, Netflix for those rainy days!). It really did feel like a home for the week. Steve and Sylvia were absolutely fantastic hosts (thank you both very much) being both friendly and extremely helpful without being at all overbearing. I would highly recommend The Old Post Office to anyone and we look forward to returning one day.
