Dalriada is a much loved holiday home. Turn up, switch off, re-charge. A wonderfully refreshing cabin-in-the-woods type holiday on the shores of Loch Goil in the Loch Lomond National Park. Bliss. Introducing Dalriada (pronounced: dael'riada) A cedar wood chalet holiday home located between the villages of Lochgoilhead and Carrick Castle on the west side of Loch Goil. The entrance is shared with another property which is only occasionally occupied by the owners. Step out of the chalet and you are right on the shores of this scenic tidal sea loch. Bring your binoculars. Depending on the time of year the gannets put on a marvellous display diving for fish and you can look out for seals, which are common.

A wonderfully refreshing cabin-in-the-woods type holiday on the shores of Loch Goil in the Loch Lomond National Park. Bliss. Introducing Dalriada (pronounced: dael'riada) A cedar wood chalet holiday home located between the villages of Lochgoilhead and Carrick Castle on the west side of Loch Goil. The entrance is shared with another property which is only occasionally occupied by the owners. Step out of the chalet and you are right on the shores of this scenic tidal sea loch. Bring your binoculars. Depending on the time of year the gannets put on a marvellous display diving for fish and you can look out for seals, which are common. Porpoises are regular visitors and there has been sightings of Otter's on the shoreline this year (2014). No matter what, you're in a perfect spot to look out for them. Dalriada will be appreciated by visitors looking for a comfortable, modest base to relax in a rural west coast setting. This is a holiday property where you truly come to switch off. The standard of furnishing and fittings are in keeping with a chalet type property. Simple but functional. Outside there is an enclosed balcony patio area suitable for a pet. Outdoor seating for 2. Bird feeders placed so you can enjoy the visitors from the lounge area. Dalriada is all about the views. This is the place to sit and watch boat traffic on the loch, as well as look out for the birds and animals. Bedrooms and bathroom Bedroom 1: Double bed with electric blanket, storage space on each side of the bed and reading lights Bedroom 2: Twin beds with electric blankets, one wardrobe and reading lights Bathroom: Bath with electric shower over the tub Facilities Hallway where you leave your boots, coats and outdoor gear Open plan lounge with picture windows and loch view Wood burning stove, wood provided Dining table for 4 TV/DVD player and a DVD library – Important – please note that there is no TV reception, the screen is for playing DVD's There is a DAB Radio and a Bluetooth speaker A selection of books and games Galley type kitchen with 4 hob cooker, oven, toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge, freezer, cafetiere, dishwasher and all the crockery and utensils you will need.

Very disappointed with this accommodation, so many good reviews but just thought the standard of the cabin and furnishings was not what was expected. If you are abroad you might expect to have to buy drinking water. In Scotland , I don’t think so...; a...More

Hello Emma - thank you for leaving the review. You visited last July and only added your review in March. Please be assured that the 2 armchairs have been replaced. Apologies if you found dog hair on the sofa. That is a no-no. Regards: Leonard
