We had a fantastic stay in Minard. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The hosts were great; very welcoming, quick to respond to any questions and even told us of any local events that were happening. They do live next door but don’t let that put you off as they kept themselves to themselves. Other locals are also very friendly and enjoy a chat. Minard to a great place to base yourself to explore north and south of Argyll and Bute. We went on many fantastic walks, many of them on the doorstep, fished in the loch opposite and saw many sights. Inveraray and Lochgilphead are about a 15 min drive and each have a Co-op. Some good restaurants in Inveraray- recommend Samphire but you do need to book in advance. There is also a good butchers in Inveraray too. Inveraray castle and jail are good to visit and we even walked Ben Nevis- about 1 and a half hour drive there but even the drive was stunning. All in all we had a very memorable holiday.
