"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.

"Romantic getaway"

Ballibrad is an excellent place to experience the wilderness and quiet of scottish highlands. It is in a secluded area therefore you will have all the piece on earth. The only difficulty is the road - track leading up to the cabin. It is a very rough track and on rainy days, it is almost impossible to go up the path without getting yourself dirty. Also if you rent a car watch out and drive slowly since there are big bumps. But this is the only negative. The cabin is very cozy, and spacius. Everything is provided for. There is a log fireplace provided for heating and it takes about 1-2 hours for the cabin to heat up. So that is perfect as well. Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay and we are definitely reccomending Ballibrad to everyone. Lindsey and Graham Thank you

"A beautifully renovated barn in the remote glens of West Scotland. Idyllic."

If you're looking for a remote and peaceful place to stay surrounded by beautiful hills then Ballibrad is it. A few minutes drive up a track (and, as advertised, a very rough track!) the barn comes into view and it is truly stunning. Not another building in sight for 360 degrees. The barn has been stylishly renovated and the open plan kitchen/living room gives it a large, spacious feel. The wooden ceiling (hosting a disco ball!) is beautiful and the wood burner was easy to use and very effective. The best thing about Ballibrad, however, is the view from the enormous window - even in bad weather it was fantastic and a great thing to see first thing from the mezzanine bedroom. The bathroom is large and modern with an excellent shower. As dog owners, we loved being able to let the dog out to roam as the barn is fully enclosed and safe. I thoroughly recommend a trip to Ballibrad.

"quiet without being remote"

Great set up. Brilliant for dogs . The road up to the house was all part of the experience as well. And a really good dog friendly pub within easy reach.
