"Superb holiday barn in a great spot with outstanding views"

The barn was easy to book with the owner and we had a four night mid week break with the kids. The barn was lovely and spacious inside and the wood burning fire was lovely once we got the hang of lighting warmed through the whole barn. The huge window at the front was special as we could see all the countryside, waking up to that wonderful view was great. Would definitely book this again.

Really enjoyed our stay at Ballibrad, we had a mixed week weather wise with a lot of rain which made the track to the cottage unsuitable for cars, luckily we had a 4x4.
The cottage has a lovely wood/coal burning stove which heated the property in the cold evenings.
We walked to the village of Killmartin one evening, it has a nice hotel which serves food and fine ales, they also allowed us to take our dogs inside the bar. There are plenty of interesting places to visit such as Oban and Invergarry.
Personally I think the property is only large enough for couples.
