We spent a lovely week in Clematis Cottage, Bonawe House. We found the location very Central for visiting the surrounding area/ islands. The cottage itself was immaculate and had everything we could possibly want, we had two little dogs with us and they loved it too! Damon and Renate were very helpful both before and during our visit and we will definitely be back. Have recommended to friends and family already.
Taynuilt is served well by public transport and good local hotels. Oban, seafood capital of Scotland, is close by. Calmac Ferries run regular sailings to the Islands and a new Yacht Marina is currently being built in the harbour. The scenic views in this area are breathtaking. Places I would recommend to visit would include Ben Cruachan Hollow Mountain and Visitor Centre, a few miles outside Taynuilt. Also Ellenabeich and Easdale, crossing the famous Atlantic Bridge on the way.
This was a return visit for us to Clematis Cottage as we had previously enjoyed it a year ago. It is situated in lovely grounds and it is only a short walk to the shore of Loch Etive. It has good access to many areas for day trips out. Oban, with ferries to the isles, is only a 30 minute drive away.
There are plenty of walks of varying lengths and difficulties within easy reach.
The cottage itself is comfortable with many thoughtful extras.
The owners, Damon and Renate, are very pleasant helpful people.
This cottage was very clean, fairly modern with a good range of amenities. Situated in nice quite location. Scenery was brilliant. Great value for money. Very friendly staff. Would highly recommend a stay here . Fresh eggs available in the morning from the local friendly chickens lol but seriously if you plan to be in the area, well worth staying for some chill time.
Excellent cottage , very clean and comfortable . Beautiful setting with some stunning views. It's not far from the loch a 5 minute walk .Grahams the local village shop is great for self catering , but we did also buy some ready frozen meals from cottage owners which waa really convenient and excellent quality. Oban is easy to reach by car or train .
