“Wonderful castles and reading by the fire.”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage is so comfortable and warm that it was hard to leave and explore, but there are so many places to visit within easy reach, that we did leave the reading till the evening, when we lit the woodburner and poured our drinks! The living room is big and has a sun deck with barbecue at one end, sadly not used in April, but giving lovely views over the loch. Kitchen large and well equipped, and each bedroom has its own en suite bathroom with bath as well as shower. The décor is stylish but cosy, with lots of armchairs and sofas, and we had a very happy week.

“Very comfortable cottage with beautiful scenery.”
Reviewed 16 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had a great time. The dogs loved it. Andrew the owner was very accomodating as regards one of our party's health requirements. He was helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The whole week was an escape for us all. The weather was pretty wet and stormy so the log fire stove was used to the max, it was wonderful and brought the inner UG out in some of us. As it was so stormy and cold on 4 of our 7 days the wildlife appeared to stay indoors too!! Because of this we will have to go back! Oh dear what a shame!! The cottage was well equipt and very, very homely. We would recommend Tighnariddon cottages and we hope to go back again. All of us appreciated having instant wi-fi, can't fault the holiday.

“Wonderful Relaxing family time”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The cottage was modern and clean with all the makings of home from home. As described situated right on Loch side so wonderful low tide walks each morning on the deserted beach. The dog and children could run free burning off energy without the worry of disturbing other people, only wish there had been a hose to hose them all down afterwards but the mop bucket worked well! The area was extremely tranquil and extremely difficult to believe only an hour (if that) from Glasgow.
I found a car was a necessity and I should really have researched the area a bit more as feel we missed a few opportunities - the Argyle secret coast scarecrow trail, the ferry to Rothesay, a day trip on the Waverley steamer- but these are all things to think of for next time.
We went armed with board games, football, kites, sticker books and DVDs and the children (6,3 and 1) couldn't have been happier.
We took our food with us and although a Spar shop along the road which is perfect for essentials, the nearest 'big' supermarket is Dunoon.
Otter Ferry beach on a good day is worth a visit and Portavadie Marina has a great children's play area as well as shop, bar and restaurant.
A holiday with a difference, no amusement parks, no queuing or fast food restaurants but definitely an experience worth doing again. Thank you.

“Games, Islands & Golf”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at this delightful cottage (again) to enjoy a trip to the Commonwealth Games at nearby Glasgow followed by the delights Argyll's 'Secret Coast' has to offer. The Games were magnificent and the cottage just as good as our first visit, very clean, comfortable and homely with everything one could hope for after a long day out adventuring. An added bonus this time was excellent wifi internet.

We enjoyed stunning walking all around the immediate area, caught mackerel and pollock in Loch Riddon, a bit of golf up the road in Kames and just as the guide book advised a day trip to Tobormory on Mull. Best of all Brian the Labrador had a great time as well. It being Scotland and summer we got out share of rain but we prepared for that and it made all the sunshine that much better. Butefull!

What a wonderful place for a winter escape! We loved everything about it: the lovely interior, the glorious views, the roaring fire and the peace and quiet..... It was perfect for us and we can't wait to return!
