"What a Gem!"
Quick and efficient to book with clear and precise information from the owner, this is a really charming, cosy cottage. It is incredibly well equipped and the flat screen TV has a small surround sound system which makes all the difference! It is superbly positioned with views over the lock and right next door the Goil Inn. There are two shops - one small store beside the Goil Inn and a small supermarket about five minutes' walk. Between the two you can get everything you need. The main drawback is the lack of hanging space - limited to four or so hooks, but there is a set of drawers and several shelves within a contained unit. The big bonus? A Tempur memory foam mattress - absolute luxury and a superb night's sleep :-)

Stayed here at the end of August for 5 nights. Lovely cottage, extremely comfortable, well equipped. Not great storage in bedrooms - main bedroom has a large chest of drawers but absolutely nowhere… More
Thank you for posting such a positive review. There is a laminated Quick Intro Guide to Stable Inn Cottage covering the very points, and more, that you have raised. It should have been available for you. I shall make sure a new one goes in today.

We stayed here the week of New Year, and we couldn't fault it in anyway. The location was perfect, right in the village and the Goil Inn is right next door for food, live music and lovely cosy pub. The front door is glass and it looks right on to a view of the Loch. Very nice to wake up to every morning.
We had a 2 year old with us and there was loads of games and toys for him to play with. The bedrooms were a great size, the bigger bedroom had a king size bed and a small infant bed. The beds were very comfy! The full size kitchen and dining table were great for eating in.
Will definitely use this house again.
