Idyllic seaside retreat
We all had such a good week - the views are breathtaking and the coast was easy to explore from the beautiful garden. We enjoyed the many rock pools. The cottage is very comfortable and we had everything we needed. We were all very sad to leave and can’t wait to return. Our hosts were both very thoughtful and welcoming. It’s a magical part of the world!

Magnificent vacation
We booked Atlantic Bay for part of the summer holidays and from the second we arrived on Seil we knew we had made the right decision to drive up from the south coast of England! The cottage has spectacular views and is on nature’s doorstep. We were welcomed by the local rabbits and pheasants and we were lucky enough to see eagles on the cliffs above almost every day of our stay. The cottage itself is nice and spacious and well thought out. Lots of spare bedding and towels meant it was easy for us to increase our number. Sitting in the garden or on the beach it was almost easy to forget we weren’t on our own in the area. We miss the sound of the lapping sea! We found the booking process nice and easy and all the communications we had with the owners were easy stress free. We also took a boat trip with David’s firm Sea Life Adventures which we would heartily recommend. We had an amazing week in the cottage and cannot wait to return some time.

Amazing views amazing cottage!!
Wow! We fell in love with Atlantic Bay cottage and left very reluctantly. It’s an amazing place with breathtaking views that are everchanging. We hardly had the tv on all week, and lost touch with the world because we couldn’t pull ourselves away from the views. The cottage was lovely and clean and everything was thought of. It was a real home from home. The garden was huge and the children loved charging about on it and playing badminton. We really enjoyed being able to just walk to the end of the garden and onto the rocky beach. The slate and stones are beautiful and we spent hours exploring, rock pooling, kayaking and fishing from there. We even built an oven from the stones snd had a fire and bbq a few times. We saw otters in the mornings on the rocks in front of the house. The trip to Easdale island was lovely and we found it a beautiful and fascinating place. We enjoyed luing and tiree too. The fish and chips at Oban was delicious. We really hope to return to this beautiful place and would highly recommend it. The only small feedback we would give is that it needs more freezer room. When you’re self catering for a week, this would help. Also, a two slice toaster makes breakfast for 8 quite drawn out. These are just minor things though and otherwise, we found the cottage perfect. The bottle of vino on arrival was most welcome too thank you.

Wonderful time at Atlantic Bay Cottage
We had a wonderful stay at Atlantic Bay cottage. The location and views are just wonderful, it’s a great place to visit and explore with a young family. The house is well kept and spacious, and the outside space was ideal and safe for our young boys who had plenty of garden to play in and which also leads directly to the stoney beach where they could explore the rock pools and have fun with the sea. The house is right on the sea. The views out to sea from the house are simply spectacular. The isle of Seil is very remote, you definitely need a car. There is a local store which is well supplied with all you need if you don’t want to leave the island. There is also a good pub and excellent Oyster bar 10 mins walking distance from the cottage. We really enjoyed our weeks stay, very relaxing, very peaceful and amazing scenery.

Loved Atlantic Cottage
Our stay at Atlantic Cottage was so good we rebooked for next year while we were still there. The reviews of Atlantic Cottage are spot on. The cottage is spacious and roomy and well appointed. David and Jean provided a lot of extras in the kitchen and bathrooms not always found in rental cottages and they just add to the vacation. The location is perfect. Situated on a small, quiet country road and the beach and ocean on the other side just steps from the large private well kept yard. Young deer visited most evenings and pheasants were spotted in the yard. The village with a traditional local pub that serves good food is a short 10-15 minute walk from the house, and the ferry over to Easedale island with walking paths to the summit. Worth visiting. There is a walk path up the hill overlooking the village which is featured in the movie Ring of Bright Water which is in the DVD library at the house which is neat to watch whilst there as a lot of the scenes shot are around the area! There is a well stocked grocery store and post office 10 minutes away for convenience or main food stores in Oban 25 minutes away. There's a lot of good things to say about the cottage but they have been already covered in the other reviews. Atlantic Cottage is a great place to stay and we're really looking forward to our next visit next year.

Family holiday
This is the 3rd time we have been to Atlantic bay cottage. We always have a great time here visiting the Isle of Mull, Luing, Easdale, Oban and Glencoe. The cottage is spacious and has a beautiful view of the sea. Our children enjoys exploring the rock pools and playing cricket in the garden. A fab family holiday.

Just Fabulous----out of fairy tale!
A beautiful cottage in great location with sea view in Isle of Seil, The ferry from Ellenabeich to Easdale is small and very cozy. The small cozy restaurant in Ellenabeich the Oyster is good, though a bit expensive Jean the owner is very prompt and thanks you for a lovely complimentary Chardonnay!!!

Loved it!
Very spacious cottage, wonderful situation, loads of history and wildlife and when the sun shines it couldn't get any better. We visited Kilmartin archaeological museum, Arduaine Gardens, Luing & Easdale Islands as well as Oban. When we felt lazy we simply sat in the garden listening to the sea and watching for what wildlife might appear. We did see an otter and others have seen dolphins - magic!

Enjoyed By Tree Generations From Two to Seventy Two
An ideal spot for all who enjoy nature. A large, comfortable, well maintained cottage with everything one could need. The bonus comes with the large garden, proximity to the sea and stunning views from most of the windows. David is clearly a very busy man but always seems to make time to be helpful and friendly. Thank you to both of you and especially for the discount on the once in a lifetime boat trip among the islands. The whole location is special with fantastic scenery, comfortable accommodation and very friendly people.
