“Lovely barn in a fantastic location”

The barn is very nicely decorated and was clean and tidy when we arrived. The location is second to none for peace, tranquility and scenery. We saw deer, hare and numerous bats all from the comfort of the living room. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay to anyone wanting to get away from it all.

“Absolute tranquility”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a gorgeous cottage in a beautiful tranquil location. The peace and quiet is second to none and the facilities in the cottage offer everything you could need. The view from the gable end is spectacular no matter what the weather and the whole area is a joy to visit.

“so relaxing, trouble to get going”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

when weather bad make sure you have a good book. TV signal not the best but they is a dvd player. The surrounding area is worth taking a look at.
Ballllibrad itself is lovely the layout is good loads of room,everything you need is there the basic but there. we just really enjoyed the peace and quiet, watching the wild life and walking the hills. The road to the barn is a bit uneven but ok with us as our car is 4x4 and could handle it . our dogs just love it running all over the place, a few ticks but soon sorted.

“Highland taste”
Reviewed 8 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Negative: The farm track is a little annoying between gates to open and close and mud, but we could easily drive with a small car. It is also hard to heat if you are no experienced with stoves. The mattress was not very comfortable and there are no curtains to stop the first lights in the morning above your bed.

Positive: The house is really nice, rebuilt in a old stone house, with large spaces, big kitchen and a lot of windows. It is the only one in the middle of a glen, and you could feel like everything is yours. It is wonderful to wake up and see a breathless view from your bed through the big window. It is also in a good position to reach Campletown, Tarbert, Kennacraig for the ferries, Oban. The sky at night is amazing if no clouds. We really appreciated this stay.

“Excellent rural relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We enjoyed our week here. The weather was very kind to us. The track up to Ballibrad is a touch rough but it is only a farm track the walk down to the village is lovely only ten minutes and yet when at the barn it felt that there was nothing for miles. Had a couple of nice meals at the Kilmartin hotel which is also dog friendly. We loved watching the bats at dusk. If you like rural with just a ten minute walk to village I would highly recommend Ballibrad we will certainly return. Thank you :-)
