Reviewed 3 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Lovely cottage which is very well equipped. A wonderful surprise when we arrived, the welcome basket was very much appreciated. Good location for visiting the Oban area. The owner Caroline was very prompt with emails etc I would highly recommend staying at Barcaldine Cottage.

We stay in the cottage for 1 week. When we arrived was a lovely basket with some treats and milk waiting for us in fridge . The cottage was clean, it has everything we need for a nice relax holidays. Could do with a darker blinds tho. But apart from that. Great cottage, great location. Definitely will be back

“Comfortable and quiet”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The 2 bedroom bungalow is located in a quiet area. It is very clean and has everything that is needed for a comfortable holiday. However we travelled to Oban by train and the location of the bungalow was at least 30 minutes walk up a steep hill just off a busy A road. We are keen walkers and we also hired cycles but the long walk up the hill at the end of each day proved problematic especially if we wanted to go back into Oban for an evening meal. So if you are without a car you need to have this information. There was a bus service but with restrictions at certain times of the day.I would only recommend this property to older travellers if they have a car.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you found the cottage very clean and comfortable, something all our guests have commented on. As you mentioned the cottage is located in a quiet area which is just on the edge of town. This aspect of the cottage has proved popular with many of our guests but I appreciate that it's all down to personal preference. The property description does advise that it is a 20 minute walk (4 minutes by car) into town, downhill going, uphill returning. Hope you continue to enjoy holidaying in Scotland.

“Ideal as base to explore Oban and the surrounding”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Very well equipped, nothing was missing what you might need. Good working WiFi, Flatscreen-TVs. A wonderful welcome basket not to forget to mention! Close to the bus stop into the centre of Oban (transfer about 5 minutes).
For a wonderful week we felt home. Ideal base for touring around to Glencoe, Isle of Mull, Inveraray, a.s.o..
We enjoyed it staying at Bercaldine Cottage!
