“Everything, plus a little extra provided!”

We have just stayed in this super apartment which has the benefit of a wonderful view from the large windows.
A warm welcome greeted us with homemade bread, eggs, milk, butter and cheese - plus a bottle of prosecco! There was plenty of tea and coffee in the cupboard plus kitchen extras (kitchen foil, cling film etc) provided.
The apartment is both comfortable and warm. Don't be put off by the colour of the water! It is safe to drink and bathe in! The brown hue is down to the peat apparently.
Steven and Lynne have found a great place to make their home and we shall recommend their apartment to anyone who wishes to explore the Ardnamurchan peninsula and if they can stay awake until it is really dark, the stars are stunning due to minimal light pollution!

Hi Folks,

Many thanks for taking the time to leave such a great review. It is very much appreciated and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. We are grateful for you recommending us to others. If they do come over the next few months, then they will be able to see the dark skies without staying up too late. Just now we can see the Milky Way out of the windows at the front of the house from about 10 o'clock.

Best Wishes

Steven & Lynne

Very comfortable accommodation with everything you could need. Lovely welcoming touches such as fresh bread and eggs from the chickens as well as Highland Soap Company toiletries. Fantastic view from the front window and perfect for wildlife watching. Friendly and welcoming hosts (including Fergus) and the perfect location if you have a dog that likes water! Well placed for visiting and exploring Ardnamurchan, whether you are looking for a relaxing break or a more energetic holiday. Would definitely visit again.

Rockpool house is a beautiful apartment with fantastic views. Steven and Lynne are excellent hosts , home made bread, butter, fresh eggs and a bottle of bubbly on arrival. The apartment has everything the holidaymaker needs. The outlying areas are also beautiful. Great photo opportunities almost everywhere.

Perfectly formed and spotlessly clean Rockpool provides a great base for a couple + dog to explore the gorgeous Ardnamurchan Peninsula and watch the ever-changing weather over Loch Sunart. The hosts make sure you're well catered for on arrival with home-made bread, eggs, cheese, butter, milk, dog biscuits and bottle of fizz in the kitchen, Scottish toiletries in the bathroom and plenty of advice on the area. There are several maps, guide books, paperbacks, suduko (not as yet used!), postcards and board games to keep you amused when not out and about. I only knocked off a point as the satellite TV didn't work when it was raining.
The village of Acharacle is about 20 minutes up the road where there's a well-stocked shop, post-office and lovely tea-room amongst other amenities. There are several lovely beaches around the peninsula where the dog can run free. It does need to be kept on lead around the property due to the owners' chickens and the road (totally quiet at night) but there is a small fenced off area immediately outside the entrance with a table and chairs. I can imagine the property is always warm and cosy even in mid-winter so would like to return again to look at the stars and maybe see the Northern Lights.

Many thanks for such a comprehensive review, it is much appreciated. Also, thanks for letting us know about the satellite TV. We had it checked after you left and it is now fixed. Rainwater was getting into the connections on the dish and shorting out the signal. We do hope it did not impact on your stay too much. We hope to see you back in mid-winter and show you the wonderful dark skies we have here. Best wishes, Steven & Lynne.
