Dalriada...it is like stepping into past, how the holidays used to be, in your best childhood memories. It is all about spending quality time with your loved ones and enjoying your surroundings together. Forget your iPads, iPhones, laptops and TV and have nature as your playground while enjoying the stunning views. Read some books, play some games together, have a cup of hot chocolate by the wood burner, put the wellies on and explore the beach or just sit admiring the views and listen to the birds when it's raining...
From the minute we( 2 adults, 5 year old and 7 months old baby) arrived we have loved every moment of our 4 night stay. The views of the mountains and Loch Goil are breathtaking, we had a private piece of the shore that we could explore to our hearts content and was very popular with my little boy. You can hire a boat locally or there is plenty to do in the surrounding area, we loved Inverary and the Oyster Bar, plus all the walks and water falls. The chalet was equipped with everything you ever need, and furnished very tastefully in retro style, it is really comfortable and warm with lots of windows for you to enjoy the beautiful views. Plus there is a good selection of games, books and DVDs, local attraction guides and lots of torches around if you want to go exploring at night. We loved coming outside on a clear night and seeing the blanket of millions of stars above us that you would not normally see in the city.
The only thing that took abit longer for us with a baby, was having to boil the water twice for washing and sterilising bottles as the water from the tap is not a drinking water, but even that didn't bother us and added to the experience.
Leonard was very helpful and accommodating and allowed earlier check in time ( after 2 pm) and later departure ( before 11 am) on our request.
We have really enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to return soon.
We were three adults and one child.We loved the setting:just on the loch,so quiet,birds landing on the verandah looking to be fed and a very well equipped chalet.The sole reservation is the 'late' check in and the 'early' check-out'.Both need to be improved.Book this chalet if you want peace,quiet and comfort.
