“Fabulous base for a West Highland Adventure”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a wonderful stay at the Ardchoille Croft and would highly recommend this holiday rental for a base when exploring Mallaig and the surrounding area. The garden and deck was just perfect for sitting in the sun.

Liked best: The location - especially the Harry Potter steam train which passed the cottage twice a day - almost touching distance. You could walk into Mallaig.
Liked least: Nothing

“Loved the steam train, home from home comforts and the great location.”

Thank you Theresa for a wonderful stay in Ard choille. We had a great time and would like to come back again and explore more of the area. The house is just great. modern but still with a sense of it's history, warm and welcoming. Our two little ones loved the steam train going by, and so did we.
There is so much to do in the area, with ferry trips from bustling Mallaig to all the small islands and Skye, that we will look forward to coming back for boat trips to Knoydart and beyond. If you want a comfortable and very well equipped house with lovely views and close to the silver sands of Morar, then this is for you.
Loads of places to eat and drink in Mallaig and Arisaig along with the local swimming pool to keep families entertained if it does rain.

“Fabulous Cottage”

I would definately recommend this cottage. It was spacious, spotlessly clean with plenty of room and in a fantastic area, only a short car journey to Mallaig. Only downside is that older people may struggle slightly with the slope up to the cottage and the walk in shower cubicle as it isn't very big and has no handles to hold on to. Overall though we had a fantastic holiday and enjoyed trips to Fort William, Oban and the Isle of Skye where we took the 2 hour boat trip to see the Golden Eagles and Seals.

We enjoyed a lovely stay in this fabulously renovated and extended cottage. It enjoys a quiet location with nice views and yet is only one mile away from Mallaig. It was spotlessly clean, warm; tastefully decorated and fully equipped with everything that could be needed. The owner, Theresa, was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. There is no internet at the property but that was a blessing to be 'away from it all' ! The railway line passes close by to the property but there are only a few trains each day and caused no disturbance to us at all; it was quite a novelty. We shall be very happy and look forward to making a return visit to this property and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone wanting somewhere really nice to stay in this great part of Scotland.

“Lovely house, very friendly village and property owner”

The house is in a secluded, peaceful setting around 1 mile from Mallaig. Theresa, the owner, was very helpful and friendly, and the people (and pubs/hotel) of Mallaig were very welcoming. The rental is well furnished and spacious and spotlessly clean. There are some magical places to visit from Mallaig. We particularly enjoyed the peace and beauty of Knoydart and Rum (easy and very scenic ferry journeys) and a train journey to glenfinnan and the loch nearby, as well as the Morar Higlands Games. The house is a great place to go for a peaceful and comfortable break, and the area is breathtakingly beautiful.
