“Impractical for familes”
This apartment was new and fresh. Not greatly clean but fresh and had all necessary amenities. The location was not practical for families however neither was the actual property. There were no paths, nor pavements leading to local washing facilities *since there is no washing machine* to shops or play areas. The garden was not a place to play in for children and the floors were of stone. A high risk factor. We found ourselves driving to the local hotel which had a playground to let the kids run off steam. Oh yes and the internet connection is limited to emails. Our kids would have liked to stream movies and music.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. I think, perhaps, Traighuaine Ard was the wrong choice of location for your family. Pavements, shops and play areas are not normally to be found near by in such a rural location. The information on the website is designed to give potential guests a clear description of the area and the apartment, including the nature of the flooring. Children are welcome to play on the lawn and in the field adjoining it - for safety reasons the small dam, which provides the water supply, is a "no go" area and therefore children need to be supervised in the garden, as mentioned in the information folder. I am, however, concerned that you describe the apartment as "not greatly clean" - I clean the apartment myself and aim to provide a very high standard of cleanliness. The information folder in the apartment asks that you let me know of any problems at the beginning of your stay - I don't know what, specifically, you found to be lacking in the standard of cleanliness but I would happily have made good any shortcomings if you had pointed them out to me at the beginning of your stay.
“Excellent accommodation with spectacular view”
To get there don't follow your sat nav down Loch Awe but go to Loch Gilphead. Take a comprehensive shop with you as it is some way to the shops. Wonderful views, great walks with dogs,lots to do in the area but be prepared for any sort of weather. Everything you could want in the way of kitchen equipment, wifi etc. Very relaxed getaway, you could just sit on the terrace and drink in the views all day.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for your excellent review. For anyone reading it, please note that dogs are only accepted in the apartment in exceptional circumstances i.e. special needs etc. Good advice regarding the SatNav - it takes you the shortest route as the crow flies, not the quickest route. From Oban or Lochgilphead, follow the directions on the website.
We stayed at T Ard from 2nd to 9th of March this year. It was easy to find; just off the road to Oban not far from croabh haven. The setting is magnificent, the apartment is on a hillside affording amazing views of the sea. It's spotless with a beautiful modern / contemporary finish. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, went walks, spotted wildlife, visited castles and kilmartin glen, watched the stars, ate in restaurants/ cafes and drank lots of wine on the patio - what more could u wish for! Planning our next visit already!! D McKay
“Traighuaine Ard - Highly recommeded!”
We’ve just returned from a brilliant weeks’ stay at Traighuaine Ard. This self-catering apartment is lovely; modern, clean and welcoming and provides all the essential ingredients for a truly relaxing holiday in a must see part of Scotland. Having never stayed in this beautiful stretch of the West Coast before, our days were spent exploring all that it has to offer and evenings spent relaxing, cooking and enjoying a well-deserved glass of wine whilst admiring the views that would you could never grow old of seeing. Whether you are a couple, a family or group of friends, this holiday apartment is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for R&R or a base to take advantage of the great outdoors! Thank you!!
“Fantastic place with a fabulous view! Will come again!”
We have always loved our visits to Scotland and Fiona’s place makes us love it even more! We had an absolutely fabulously relaxing time, enjoying the ancient sites and nearby villages with their quaint feels, and the lovely friendly people – such a refreshing change from busy city life! Thank you, Fiona, for the very comfortable accommodation, organising Olwen’s delicious meals, and providing us with a truly marvellous view!
Owner's reply: Thank you. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay at Traighuaine Ard and were able to relax and recharge your batteries ready for city life again. Hope to see you again.
“A really peaceful and relaxing place to stay.”
We could have spent the whole holiday doing nothing but staring at the ocean. It was one of the most relaxing holidays we’ve ever had. Lovely apartment and everything you could need was provided. We couldn’t get mobile connection in the apartment but this didn’t bother us! There’s WiFi on site and mobile connection not too far away.
“Great apartment! Great location! Great holiday!”
This was a lucky find. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The double beds were huge (ideal for our tall family). Views were stunning and weather was good enough to sit out on the deck some evenings. We did lots of walking and did the boat trip through the whirlpools. Fiona gave us lots of information about where to go - a week wasn’t long enough – we’ll be back.
