“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed June 30, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Just returned from our second stay and again, loved every minute. So many great places to eat nearby and also in Oban. The scenery and wild life are breathtaking for those interested in the outdoors. But if you want to stay indoors Cnocaruan is extremely cosy and fitted out to a high standard. The owners, Gabriella and George are very welcoming and can’t do enough to help. Their local knowledge is a great resource for those looking for ideas about what to do and where to go. We are already planning our next visit. Adrian & Karen.

“Great location, brilliant hosts”
Reviewed June 19, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This is a wonderfully located rental right next to Falls of Lora. Near main Glasgow to Oban road. High quality furnishing and equipment with verything you need. May not be ideal for limited mobility guests as toilet is on 1st floor up two flights of stairs.
Parking is restricted and cars need turning round on drive before exit onto main road. However these are slight issues to an otherwise great let. Would definitely go again.
The location is great for exploring Kintyre peninsular and up the West coats to Fort William and beyond. Oban is a very interesting and lively town, good for all needs.
Castle Stalker about 10 miles north on main road has best cafe and fine views.

“Well equipped, well decorated & superb location”
Reviewed May 26, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a lovely 4 nights at Cnocoruan - there are two separate rentals here, the main house and the extension on the Loch Etive side. We stayed in the main house which has just started to be rented out by Gabriella & George, who are friendly and thoughtful hosts. The house is well decorated, equipped with all we needed and we really enjoyed spending time in the back lounge in the early evening watching the Falls of Lora and the views out to the islands. Connell provide to be a good base both for the Oban area and we went up to Glen Coe and the Appin area too to take advantage of the greatt hill walking opportunities.
