Nice cottage and beautiful spot. Lovely walks locally and great places to eat out in Oban.Lovely welcome gift esp the cheese!
Only problem was Scottish weather but that's a given in Scotland at the end of October. Would recommend it as so quiet and comfortable.

We had a lovely holiday in Barcaldine, we were made very welcome and the cottage was very comfortable. The garden was particularly nice and got the sun all day, it had a lovely view of the hill behind the house We had our dog with us and within a couple of minutes from the cottage there were great walks in the forrest. We would recommend this cottage for a peaceful, comfortable holiday, within easy reach of Oban.

We had a wonderful week here ! The cottage was warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for the owner who did everything to ensure an enjoyable stay. The location is very scenic and located in the perfect area that enabled easy access to the Highlands and Islands.
Peaceful with lovely views

The house was lovely and well equipped. A welcome basket was a lovely touch. The views from the house were lovely and the garden was spacious, which suited us with young children. The area had a lot of amenities and Oban was great for sea food and very near, plus there was a good fish & chip shop nearby.

In a quiet location, near woodland walks, convenient for getting to the hills, lochs and islands. Enjoyed relaxing in the sunny conservatory and garden. A well-stocked welcome basket awaited us.

This is a comfortable house in a quiet road. It gave us a peaceful and practical base from which to explore this lovely area. The back garden and conservatory are specially nice features of the house. It is also possible to walk or cycle from the door, which we very mych enjoyed.

We have got a really warm welcome by Ms. Davidson. The rooms in the house are wide and clean. All was well prepared. In the kitchen we found a basket with traditional sweets from Barcaldine and typical cheddar.
In the back of the house is a small but nice garden. The rooms inside were perfect for us 5.
Barcaldine itself is a small village so in the evening you feel the silent of the countryside. The main reason for me to choose this home was the near to the coast, but also a central position between Loch Ness in the north, Arduaine in the south and Glen Coe to the east.

Owner greeted us with an unexpected welcome pack which was enjoyed by all!! Beds were the comfiest we had ever stayed in and got lots of sleep which is what we all needed!! Relaxing time with the grandchildren. A beautiful conservatory to watch the countless garden birds which visited and enjoy the mountain views which seemed to change each day. The children enjoyed the sky TV and were pleased their parents could ring them each evening while they were on Mull. Central location with lots to do in locality. Hope to return one day!
