“Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I had a lovely stay at The Chalet. Janet was very helpful and welcoming and provided lots of useful information. I found lots to do in the area and also enjoyed spending time gazing out of the large window and relaxing. It was especially good to find a place which can be booked by the night.

“Wonderful spot”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We named The Chalet our hobbit house in dingly dell - the place was just so magical it took us into the land of JRR Tolkien. It was warm and cosy, with a great view down into the garden area where we saw a peregrine falcon roosting in a tree. You can't get closer to nature than that, and we were sure a pine marten ran across the roof one night.
It's an idyllic spot in a great location for a few nights' stay. The owners are so informative and supportive: we were guided to an ospreys nest and where the beavers live too.
Without doubt a wonderful spot for a stay to explore the nature and history of the locality or as part of a tour of the west coast.

“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had an absolutely fantastic stay in the Chalet. It is comfortable, warm and has all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay, such as a shower that works well, well-functioning kitchen etc. The view out of the sitting-room window is fantastic.

There is plenty to do in the local area during we or dry weather.

In dry weather, we recommend:

Walking through the glen and seeing the historic points of interest,
Walking from Kilmartin to Carnasserie Castle,
Visiting Crarae Gardens,
Visiting Crinan (have a drink in the Crinan Hotel, from their viewing gallery overlooking Crinan Canal and the sea)
Having an ice-cream at Lochgilphead while sitting next to the loch and maybe even having a paddle.

In the wet weather, we recommend:

Visiting the Kilmartin Museum,
Visiting Inveraray Jail
Visiting Inveraray Castle
Visiting Ben Cruachan Hollow Mountain.

Most nights we ate in the Chalet, but if you want to eat locally, the cafe at the Kilmartin Museum serves delicious food (we had longustines and venison burgers) and the Kilmartin Hotel serves pub food and is just a step away from the Chalet.

There is also a village shop nearby that sells rolls, milk, newspapers etc.

Janet is a thoughtful host, very welcoming while at the same time respecting guests' privacy. The Chalet is well-stocked with books and leaflets on the local area as well as basic supplies such as washing-up liquid and coffee.

“Cute, Cozy and Comfy.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We absolutely loved our stay here in the chalet. A great wee chalet with everything you need. Fantastic array of wildlife books and beautiful photography .books. Very comfortable bed and bedding. Lovely sitting area. Stunning views. We enjoyed using the lovely garden for a bbq one evening. Ice cream sundaes from the pub a short walk along the road were a treat.. Kilmartin museum cafe is a must. Home baking is amazing. A visit to Crinan canal is beautiful and only around 6 miles from Kilmartin. Lots of stunning walks. We really do hope to return to the chalet in the future and would not hesitate to book again. Thankyou once again to the lovely and helpful owner Janet.
