Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. If you enjoy spectacular scenery, wildlife, history, and peace and quiet, you will love staying at Moy. The owners are friendly and helpful and the cottage is situated in what we consider was one of the most beautiful parts of Argyll. The colours of the forests when we visited in autumn was breathtaking. Oct 2012.
  2. The property was well lovely and warm, without much heating, well insulated. Great location and very nice welcome on arrival. I would recommend this property to all my friends and family. Sept 2011.
  3. Fantastic views. Cottage thoughtfully laid out with plenty of drying space for boots and waterproofs. Everything was as described, good sized accommodation, and well equipped kitchen. Just be prepared for the 8 or so miles of single track road that leads to the property. Lovely area, plenty of walks close by and the Crinan canal is well worth a walk especially the section from Crinan to Bellanoch. Aug 2011.
  4. The accommodation is in a very quiet and isolated area, with deer and other wildlife in the garden. The cottage had everything you could need. Would recommend to others looking for a quiet holiday. Sept 2011.
  5. Nice secluded cottage. Accommodation as described. Beautiful views over the loch, good walking if you want it and plenty of wildlife. Owners very helpful and friendly. July 2011.
  6. Excellent, quiet location if you like seclusion. June 2011.
  7. The cottage we stayed in by "Loch Sween" was ideal for us, in a tranquil setting and far away from the towns and cities "which we wanted". It had a beautiful view of the loch from the cottage. The dog loved playing in the surrounding woods, and there was no one to tell her off if she barked. Ideal, peaceful quiet, and cosy. April 2011.
  8. Cottage was excellent - wildlife on your doorstep and miles from anyone but easy to reach by car. April 2011.
  9. The quietness, comfort and well-equipped cottage was exactly what we required. Oct 2010.
  10. Wonderful location, great scenery, peaceful. Very clean. July 2010.
  11. Clean, well presented cottage with all appliances you needed. June 2010.
  12. It was clean and, generally, comfortable. Going into accommodation you have not seen or experienced previously can be a lottery and more than once we have been disappointed as it is not always that the truth is spoken. On this occasion we were pleasantly surprised. Sept 2009.
  13. Peacefully located with wonderful loch views. Very high standard of accommodation - comfortable beds! Sept 2009.
  14. Superb position, thoughtful bungalow layout, wonderful welcome by owners. We hope to return again to this wonderfully relaxing and beautifully situated holiday home. The wildlife is both exciting and abundant: deer, foxes, seals and otters. Beavers also recently reintroduced into the immediate area. A bird spotters paradise. Don’t forget your binoculars. Sept 2009.
  15. Lovely and clean. The photos do not do the location justice, it was a wonderful, peaceful holiday. July 2009.
  16. The cleanliness and facilities at the cottage well exceeded our expectations. The situation is idyllic if you wish for peace and quiet and spectacular views of Loch Sween and the isle of Jura. June 2009.
  17. This is the second booking made through you, and overall the quality of the cottages have been excellent. Cruin in particular is a fantastic location and i recommend it. March 2009.
  18. The cottage was very clean and up to date. The care taker was wonderful, very helpful. The small beach near the cottage was fantastic for the dogs. The views from the cottage were gorgeous. Will definitely be back. Jan 2009.
  19. The cottage we stayed in at Crunin (Moy Cottage) was exceptional, clean, warm and furnished to an exceptional standard. It had all the facilities required for our short stay, so much so that we are considering booking for a longer stay next year. Nov 2008.
  20. One of the quietest most relaxing lochside locations we have ever stayed in, or indeed seen on our trips to Scotland. And yes, you do see seals and otters. Try a winter trip - the colours are amazing. Dec 2008.
