Brian and Becs were very helpful and welcoming. They had prepared an excellent and easily accessible information pack about the area and had some great ideas about what to do and where to visit. The cottage was comfortable and homely and had a great selection of books, videos and games for us and the children to enjoy. It was amazing to wake up to the view of Loch Fyne from the cottage and wherever we went in Argyll people were friendly.
Tips for other travellers
Kilmartin is really interesting and the cafe at the Kilmartin museum is superb, try and get a table downstairs in the conservatory, (good tip, thanks Brian). The Venture West boat tour was great, hiring bikes from Crinan Cycles (very helpful) and cycling down the Crinan Canal was a lovely day. We spent a day at Inveraray Castle and doing the walk up to the folly at the top of the hill, superb view. We paddled and swam at Crinan Ferry which is a lovely beach with sand and rocks and lots of birds. We also did some of the walks around Loch Fyne in Ardcastle wood, great to get close to the water and we saw porpoises and diving gannets!
