Thankyou for posting a review, we know that you have travelled and stayed in a number of self catering establishments, and so are pleased that we seem to have struck the right cord in preparing Blairmore Old Post Office as a studio let. We hope you may return, to explore a few more of the Lochs, glens and enjoy the tourist facilities which abound in the area.
Nice to have made your acquaintance and best wishes for the future.

"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.
