The cottage was stunning and in a beautiful location.. It was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. There are many wonderful things to see nearby and breath taking views. The owners of the cottage were lovely, friendly and helpful. It's a little gem in an unspoiled place. Can't wait to go back!

This is a top quality cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay.. The location is quite special, and as it is far away from the bright lights of cities and towns, the view of the stars on a clear night is something that my son and I will remember for some time. It is difficult to imagine anyone being disappointed when they walk through the door of this charming place. Eleanor the owner is a lovely smiling person; so, all in all, it is likely that you will enjoy a marvellous stay should you make a reservation - we did.

This cottage is situated in the middle of Kilmartin Glen. We were welcomed by the owner, Eleanor, who showed us around the accommodation and we were immediately pleased. Eleanor is very helpful and friendly and the cottage is fully equipped as a home not just a holiday cottage, with absolutely everything that anyone could possibly want, including washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, hairdrier, books, games, etc. There was even a bottle of Merlot and some shortbread biscuits to welcome us. The heating was good and we didn't need to use the woodburner. It is easy walking from the cottage to explore the nearby cairns and standing stones, walking past the fields of sheep and tiny lambs bouncing around. From here we drove to Oban one day, across to the Trossachs one day and to the Crinan canal another day. We sat at the dining table in the evenings and watched a pair of eagles soaring over the mountain ridge.I would definitely recommend this holiday cottage as there is nothing negative to say about it.

Perfect cottage - first looks I fell in love! The owners were absolutely lovely and was really welcoming - they even left me a small bottle of red and white wines and Scottish shortbread. Overall, the cottage was exceptionally clean, warm, and comfortable. The stove was a great feature and added to the charm of the cottage. The cottage is situated in a great location with ancient archaeology and other interesting sightseeing attractions within a small walk. The nearest shop is 7 miles away and the nearby town of Lochgilphead was full of attractive shops, restaurants and friendly locals. I would also recommend going to Ardrishaig (9 miles down the road) and visiting the Rumblin Tums cafe. Superb food!! I will definitely return to Cran Teille. And would recommend it to anyone - of all ages!

Perfect cottage in an incredible setting.. The owners left a small bottle of red and white wines and some Scottish shortbread as a welcome gift. The cottage was clean comfortable cosy and warm. The light burning stove was a great addition and added to the charm. The cottage itself was well presented and had been finished to a high standard. The cottage is situated in a great location with ancient cairns and standing stones within walking distance. The nearest shop is 7 miles away and the local village of Kilmartin has a nice pub offering good food and drink. There are numerous walks and bike routes from the cottage. To be located in the middle of such history within walking distance was invigorating and added to the special nature of the stay We will definitely return to cran teille. And would recommend it to anyone that is wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The owners of Victoria Hall Cottages are very welcoming and helpful and obviously put a lot of thought into the conversion and furnishing of the cottages.. They are ideally situated to visit the archaeological treasures in the surrounding area and a number are within walking distance, as is the very interesting Kilmartin Museum. Lochgilphead is the nearest place for shops and services (8 miles). The Kilmartin Museum has an excellent café and you can also get food at the Kilmartin Hotel.

The owners have done an excellent job of converting the old village hall in to these two cottages. They are in a good position for exploring up and down the west coast ( as we did) . One good drive includes going through Glencoe valley. The scenery, within short drives, was stunning, we also enjoyed the rhododendrons which are grown in nearly everyone's garden and roadsides near the houses.

This was a very high standard of cottage with modern furnishings, comfortable bed and seating. Both the shower and heating worked well in the very mixed weather during our week stay. The owners could not have been more helpful. We really enjoyed the location as it was close to a cycle route with quiet roads for cycling and walking.

Crann Teile is such a fantastic accommodation, do not miss out on this one so book early to avoid disappointment. The location is surrounded by rich history and even the lodge has its own story to tell, its first class and so well kept. Plus the owner is one of the nicest people you could wish to meet, you will definitely want to return.

The cottage was, decorated very tastefully, well equipped and cosy in very historic and stunning surroundings. We were very lucky to have perfect weather for October which just amplified how beautiful this area of Scotland is.
