“Peaceful Retreat”

Just spent the past week staying at Bowater Cottage and it was extremely enjoyable. Perfect location with stunning views and very peaceful. Cottage is lovely, clean, comfortable and fully equipped for all our needs. The owners, Leonard and Fiona are very nice and very helpful, but also leave you to it as not to invade your privacy. The cottage is ideally located and there is plenty to explore in the immediate area and further afield if you are willing to drive. We got as far as Ben Nevis, which only took us a couple of hours and includes a stunning drive up through Glencoe. There are some great walks in and around Loch Goil which are included as part of an information folder in the cottage, along with best places to eat and various other activities. We hired a motor boat from Loch Goil Cruisers, which are fives mins up the road from our cottage and we enjoyed an afternoon on Loch Goil exploring and even found a Seal Colony. I highly recommend this if you have the opportunity.
I highly recommend this cottage which is lovely and has the added bonus of a stunning location. We had the best time staying here. A big thank you to Leonard and Fiona for an extremely enjoyable stay.

Had a fantastic stay at Bowater Cottage last week, the location of the cottage is amazing and the views never get old! The cottage is nicely tucked away along a long driveway.

We cottage has everything you need, I especially liked the huge waterfall style shower! And having WiFi was a massive bonus as it meant we could research the area/ check the weather ready for the next day.

Thanks again for a wonderful stay

“Relaxing break”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My husband and i are just back after spending a week staying in Bowater Cottage. The cottage is very comfortable, clean and well appointed with comforts. Len and Fiona are a lovely couple, very friendly and welcoming. We stayed there last July for a week and will be back soon. Very very relaxing.
