"The perfect home away from home"

This lovely little flat sitting on the water front at Blairmore was the ideal holiday flat - simply decorated, comfortable bed, great view, excellent kitchen, clothes washer and drier, great shower in bathroom. All the amenities you would wish for at a very reasonable cost. We stayed for ten days and found it easy to travel from Blairmore to surrounding areas including Glasgow, Oban and Kintyre. If you have no car, the bus stop is just across the road. The t-room nearby served the best fruit scones around and the coffee is excellent. We will definitely use this holiday flat again and again.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased you had a lovely time and look forward to your return visit.
