“Mr”
Reviewed February 3, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Our group of 10 stayed at Blubell Croft for a winter trip to Scotland and had the most amazing time. Huge thanks to Chrissie & Chris for making us feel so welcome.

The photos don't do the place justice; the property occupies a stunning location on the side of a valley looking out over the surrounding hills. Bluebell Croft is fitted out to a very high standard and was impeccably clean throughout. As a group of 10 (all couples), we were extremely comfortable, with double beds for all, most with en-suites (a real rarity in Scotland) and ample group cooking equipment; they have thought of everything! The log burning stoves were a delight to come back too after a long day walking and the hot tub was incredible; with views over nearby mountains and amazing stars at night. The place is well stocked with games for those wet days or long winter nights. The welcome package was also gratefully received; the scones were fantastic!

There are some great walks out of the door including lots of scenic short walks and 2 mountains (corbetts). We drove over to nearby Polloch and did the 'Loch Shiel viewpoint walk' which is a very highly recommended short walk with great views; but the Ardmanurchan peninsula offers countless other possibilities. For Munros, you need to take the ferry to Mull or Glen Coe though.

Overall, I cannot rate Bluebell Croft enough; we look forward to coming back!

“Our 5 Star Luxury Dive Trip!”
Reviewed January 25, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

At Dundee Uni Sub Aqua Club 'luxury' is not something we come across often. The original plan was three nights of camping on the west coast in january, until i said no way lets find a hot tub. We joked and fantasised about our ideal accomodation, then we actually found it! Chris and Chrissie were so welcoming and we had the best trip in the history of winter dive trips!
The accomodation is wonderful, we immediately felt at home. We were spoiled with scones, wine and plenty of firewood. The loaction was perfect, the views, the beds and of course the much appreciated hot tub!
We had such a wonderful time that we plan to return next year for a full week.
The only complaint from the whole trip was that we had to leave!

“Fantastic family holiday”
Reviewed November 25, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had a great family holiday in both Honeysuckle and Rose Cottage. Both properties are very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Great welcome by Chrissie with hot scones, home-made bread and jam. The houses are in a great location with fantastic views and great walks on your doorstep. The hot tub was amazing. Sitting looking up at the starry night sky with a glass of fizz was special! We look forward to returning one day soon!

We stayed here for a family holiday for 14 of us! The accommodation was beautiful, great setting, the views were fantastic the area was brilliant! The owners were lovely and happy to help if we needed it! The two youngest children loved collecting eggs & the geese loved to have chatter with you! The hot tub was a great added bonus & watching the stars while in the hot tub on an evening was brilliant and a great experience! We have all come back so relaxed and hope to return sometime soon!

“Just excellent on all levels”

A hidden gem on the fantastic Ardnamurchan Peninsula, it's a 2 minute drive or 15 minute pleasant walk through the woods from the village of Strontian. Perched on a steep hill are two magnificent rental cottages (we have been in both!) Honeysuckle House and Rose Cottage. The view is to die for, especially when sitting in the hot tub with your mates and a glass of fizz. Both Chris and Chrissie are very friendly and welcoming, but also unobtrusive and respectful of privacy, but always there if you need them and always up for a chat. If you're into wildlife like we are, they are both extremely knowledgeable on local flora and fauna, and are both avid birdwatchers. Watch out for the local buzzards, one swooped down to have a look at our Jack Russell! Last time we were there they had a pine martin that would visit every night. They keep chickens, ducks, geese and beautiful sheep on there land, and the fresh eggs and homegrown produce are just cracking. No point me going on about the amenities, look for yourself at the property details and photos on their website. I'm here to write about the experience. The Ardnamurchan is a truly wonderful and diverse hidden gem of Scotland, and I can't think of a better place to use as a base from which to explore. My favourite time to go is the autumn, when the stags are bellowing down the mountains at dusk, and the mist drifts through the river valley below. JUST MAGICAL.

“Great location for a family break”
Reviewed October 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The location, the property, the attention to detail---all first class.
Both Chrissie and Chris go out their way to make your stay a perfect one.
We had a large family gathering and the layout of Bluebell Croft was ideal.
The grandchildren loved the freedom, the geese, the ducks, the hens, and collecting eggs for breakfast.
An ideal break for all the family.

“Fabulous Fabulous Fabulous”
Reviewed October 18, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Booked this fabulous property as a yearly break with 4 other couples and to celebrate a 65th birthday, couldn't have chosen better for our long weekend. The setting is just perfect with the most amazing views whilst sitting in the hot tub. The house is absolutely fabulous, works so well for a large group with quality furnishings, appliances, utensils and everything has been thought of to make your stay run perfectly. We walked and cycled the area and would return to a lovely warm house with a log burner to make it extra cosy. The hosts Chrissie and Chris are most accommodating and helpful. We ate at Kilcamb Lodge and had a wonderful evening in a beautiful setting. We would most definitely recommend and we shall return.
