We loved the well looked after gardens. There was a lot of outdoor seating areas, which was great. The house is spectacular and well kitted out. The hot tub was a lovely addition and a great way to relax in the evenings. Everything was spotless. Glen Euchar House is the perfect place to stay and explore the beautiful area. We would definitely return.

The house is beautifully decorated and furnished. It had everything we needed and more by way of cooking equipment, entertainment and things to see and do. We could have very easily not left the grounds all week and still have plenty to do. Everything had been considered. The grounds are stunning and very well kept, bird feeders are a nice touch, we found it very relaxing to just sit and watch the different kinds of bird come and go. The caretaker, is such a lovely chap, very helpful and welcoming. The house was absolutely immaculate!

Great property in a beautiful position. Very private location and the man in charge of the property was very efficient and informative. Property was more than well equipped and we had a very enjoyable stay.

This was our second visit to Glen Euchar House and we've already booked for next year. The property has all that we need and has extensive and beautiful grounds.

We couldn't have been happier; the house and property were wonderful. We appreciated the beauty and the quiet. Having a 1 year old granddaughter, a pregnant daughter and a couple of restless men, everyone was happy.

This property is by far the best place I have ever visited in my life... It's your dream home and you could literally be anywhere in the world.. The house and grounds are amazing. The kids loved the river at the bottom of the garden and the hot tub was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for the caretaker. Situated great for Oban and Mull. A visit to the Oban distillery and Chocolate shop are a must, as is the little hut that sells mussels in white wine near the ferry. We will definitely return to Glen Euchar, the pictures do not do this property or grounds justice..

If you are searching for a luxury house with lovely surroundings and a hot tub, then you've found it! I searched many sites for hours and hours and came back to this every time and I'm so glad I did. The house was simply stunning, the best we have ever been to and the gardens were beautiful. The hot tub was a great touch and the property was in a great location for touring the local area.
Ms Phipps

We loved the house and hot tub. The grounds and views were absolutely amazing! We took many pictures down by the creek and enjoyed the hot tub immensely! We would certainly come again!

We had an excellent week, albeit with variable weather, will be returning and will definitely recommend to friends and family. Glen Euchar is without doubt one of the finest and best equipped holiday 'cottages' we have stayed at and am already looking forward to our next visit. The area has a lot to offer and Oban is but a short drive away with a good selection of restaurants, supermarkets and shops - the Green Shack in particular.
Mr Haddon

We enjoyed the break so much that we are hoping to return later this year. The 7 hour drive was worth it for the location, home comforts, log fire hot tub!
Mr Sweeney
May 2014
The house and grounds are fantastic - every commodity you could wish for is provided. The hot tub was the icing on the cake, we used it every evening, even in the rain. To sum it all up a magical place to relax and unwind.

We had such an amazing time here. The house was perfect, it had everything we needed and more, they have thought of every little detail. The garden and surroundings are stunning, and we spent most of our time in the wonderful hot tub! We will definitely be back here. Stunning.

Mrs Lunn

Glen Euchar House is beautiful and very well situated, with wonderful grounds that take at least a full afternoon to explore. It is a good base to reach various places of interest in Scotland, including Oban, Fort William and Inverary. The estates manager was wonderful and very helpful throughout our holiday, especially when our car broke down.

Fantastic house in fantastic grounds, the location is perfect and put us in a position to explore areas of Argyll we have previously overlooked. The hot tub is excellent.
Mrs Dennison
October 2013
This was a total gem of a property; fabulous setting, beautiful grounds, friendly caretaker, amazing kitchen, most comfortable sofa we have ever sat on in the living room, I could go on and on. Just superb if, like us, you want peace, quiet and seclusion. The kids in our party loved the space and the opportunity to explore, especially the hill behind the house, so did the adults!
Mr Tindall
August 2013
We were amazed at the space we had, the house was set on a huge plot of land with amazing views. There were plenty of places to sit outside and take in the views. The house was finished and furnished to a very high standard.

The setting of the property was breathtakingly beautiful. Other cottages don't have the wow factor that Glen Euchar House had.
Mr Birrell

Everything was perfect. Lovely, cosy house, nice walks and enough to do to keep our teenage children entertained! The WiFi helped with that though. We enjoyed it so much that we have already booked it up again!

The overall standard of the accommodation was very high and we thoroughly enjoyed all the little luxuries that the house provided, particularly the hot tub.

A sanctuary from insanity/Your peace to preserve in your own time Where noise before in normality/Is transformed by nature's perfect rhyme Whose arboreal curtains offer/A different soundscape to explore With paths untrodden you may prefer/To tourist spots you'd want to detour Your choice to have a break that may live/Long in your memory to recall For future benefit it will give/To friends and family best of all Bright lights there are not far away/But save that for another day

Everything about the holiday was superb. 3 generations of the family playing in the river in the roasting weather. A memory that will remain with us for a long time.
September 2015
A lovely and well-stocked house with a lot of small touches that made it feel like home. We loved the grounds and the hot tub and the house. The kitchen is wonderful and the wood-burning stove kept things cozy in the evenings. Gordon was such a nice caretaker and gave us some tips about exploring the area. We loved Glen Euchar house and this beautiful haven and hope to return!

First impression Wow. It is a beautifully presented house. With everything you need Real home feel. Grounds amazing, Well maintained, Hot tub large enough for our family of 4 adults and 2 children., who loved to get in every morning and most evenings. The scenery surrounding the property is breathtaking. Would definitely return and highly recommend it?.Visit to Oban a must head to harbour if you love seafood.. Sea life sanctuary was a good day out.

This is one of those rare finds that exceeds all expectations. Lovely large rooms, very homely and the photos just don't the house justice. Downstairs: Kitchen: massive, and you'll want for nothing. Fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, range cooker, and every piece of kitchen equipment and utensil known to man! Think it had 3 slow cookers of different sizes too. Dining room: lovely spacious room with splendid extendible table, and a telescope to enjoy the outside world. Hallway: plenty of room to get in and out, lots of storage room and cupboards full of games. Downstairs shower room: toilet, sink and large shower, looks brand new. Lounge: enormous with reclining sofas and chairs, wood burner, massive tv, sky box, wifi, wii, and Blu-ray and a good range of DVDs, books and magazines. Downstairs bedroom: single bed, desk, massive bookshelf. Upstairs: Bathroom: glorious bathroom, bath, separate shower, very nice room. Master bedroom: super sized spacious room, biggest bed I've ever seen. Plenty of draws and wardrobe space. Double bedroom: good size, and and again lots of storage. Single room: single bed, bedside table and small chest of drawers. The whole house is modern and contemporary, very clean and modern. Bedding, towels, robes, and household products all plentiful. The grounds are fantastic, the hot tub amazing and it has a nearby CD player, so grab your favourite music and crank it up and you relax. It's 8 miles from Oban, took about 20 minutes to drive, great for Fort William, Glencoe, and surrounding areas; would definitely stay again, without hesitation. Owner/Manager (Gordon) top bloke who was a great invisible but reassuring presence.

Glen Euchars is a wonderful house. Everything you could ever need is there. We didn't want to leave. The hot tub is heavenly especially in the evening watching the stars above. We stay in Scotland at least twice a year and this is the best place we have ever been to. Don't tell everyone though as we want to come back next year!!

I just stayed at Glen Euchar House last week with my partner and friends. The views are amazing, the hot tub was great and lookily for us the weather was fantastic. When we arrived on the Saturday the groundsman showed us round and told us if we needed anything, or had any problems he would be out and about throughout the days. The first shower my friends had in the downstairs bathroom was freezing cold, we couldn't seem to get it to work. Myself and my partner were using the shower upstairs (beware if you're tall, it's on a slope and you have to duck to get your head under) and this was luke warm at best but a bit better than freezing. My partner called the groundsman on the Sunday but we couldn't get hold of him, so left a message - we heard nothing back. We then left another message on the Tues and still heard nothing and we hadn't seen him once since we had arrived. We then finally caught up with him on Thurs, to which he told us a plumber had been called but couldn't make it until the Saturday, which was no good to us as we were going home. The bathrooms were also not the cleanest, on our second day there I bought bathroom wipes from the supermarket and gave the sink and toilet a good wipe (hence sack the cleaner). It didn't look like it had been cleaned in the last year never mind from the last stay. Although this review isn't the most positive, we just had a few issues but all in all the holiday was good. I would recommend this place for the hot tub alone and as I said earlier the views were amazing and you have great privacy. I would take your own BBQ if you wanted, as the one there looks a bit ancient and unclean. It was definitely good to get home to a nice hot shower

I stayed here in August with my wife and 3 teenage children. The house is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Its quite a large home but still feels very homely. The house stands in a large plot of land surrounded by countryside and lots of wildlife such as deer walking past and eagles above,a nature lovers paradise. The house as the added touch of a hot tub which was nice to relax in on an evening but take some midge spray as they like to gather. We hired bikes off the manager/caretaker for a day and they also hire out kayaks if you so desire.The caretaker lives within the grounds and is very very helpful and friendly. We spent our days exploring the attractions in the area and found the house which is about 10 miles from Oban to be ideally placed. The only thing that slightly spoiled the holiday was the weather but that's Scotland. For the price paid for a week in August you would be hard pushed to find anywhere near as good. I would recommend this holiday home to anyone and would certainly re book this home if we were to return to the area.
August 2014
A superb property in all but one area, the charcoal BBQ's were very large & not very well maintained. A more modern gas BBQ. would be ideal. This is only a minor issue as everything else about the house & the grounds is fantastic. We would definitely return. The setting is magical & private. The hot tub is massive, we only used one side of it. Can't recommend it highly enough. The person who looks after it & holds the key, lives nearby & is on hand if required, he is very helpful, discreet & unobtrusive.

Beautiful large familly holiday home. very cosy place with all the facilities of a 5 star accommodation Had an amazing week with my family and would love to return some day

Glen Euchar House is truly beautiful and very well-equipped, with a hot tub, wide screen television, Wii and the best equipped kitchen of any property I've stayed in. It is set in wonderful grounds, which are very well maintained by the wonderful estates manager Chris, who is very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. The house and grounds exude peace and restfulness, and are also very spacious. A lovely place to stay and we will be returning next year!

Lots of walks from the house and well located for some island hopping ,accommodation was well equipped ,very clean , loved the hot tub! Will be visiting again as there is lots more to see in this area
July 2012
A wonderful location in a quiet and peaceful glen surrounded by natural beauty and yet still close to the main road to Oban. The property is large and airy with all of the modern equipment (large TV; BluRay; Wii; WiFi) that you could want. Large rooms throughout. Would suggest that the owners need to remove a lot of their own effects from the kitchen as there is no cupboard space left for your groceries; also a microwave would be a good addition. The huge grounds are beautiful and the hot-tub an added bonus. Mike, the property manager who lives in a separate property on site, is a friendly and welcoming man who is almost invisible unless you want his assistance when he's only too happy to help. He is a great addition to the set-up here. The surrounding countryside is just stunning and the location gives great access to all local activities; the boat trips with Sea.Fari are especially good. Overall this is an excellent place to stay, if you can't relax here then you can't relax!
