The cottage was very well-equipped and in a great location. The owner provided lots of information about things to do and places to eat. It was a joy to return to the cottage at the end of the day to enjoy the wood burner.

Great location to visit. Crinan Canal cottage was very cozy and well equipped, with a lovely view of the canal lock gates.

The weather was really very bad indeed, so it was a good excuse to relax, do the crossword, watch box sets etc. in front of a lovely wood burning stove, enjoying the paintings. Being right beside the canal was great, and we did manage one very windy walk along its banks. Lunch at the Crinan Hotel was a great treat and view from the Gallery Bar was outstanding.

The holiday was absolutely fantastic, with lots to see and do in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland. The cottage itself is in the most idyllic of settings and even the lesser active out there would love this place with its easy access and low level walks on the banks of the Crinan canal.

The location was excellent and the cottage had everything we needed. There were lots of things to do and see including; walking, cycling and fishing. There was also a pub a ten minute walk away. The owner provided comprehensive information, with contact details in case anything went amiss. All in all, it couldn't have been better. Highly recommended.

This is a very pretty and comfortable cottage in a great location right on the Crinan Canal. The area is extremely interesting and there are many places to visit that show Scotland's ancient history. Kilmartin was very good in particular and only down the road. We would definitely recommend a stay here and we hope to come back soon.

The Cottage was in a very quiet location but not isolated, there were plenty of places to visit within the area. The scenery was breathtaking and there were some very nice places to eat nearby. A wonderful break away from it all.

Scottish scenery is changeable from region to region. This part tends to be more green and lush. Different types of walks which suits the less adventurous walker and of course the area is steeped in history and archaeology. Cottage owner was informative and helpful and as she lived locally could be contacted easily if required.

we new the area before we visited and we were not disappointed the cottage is simple but very clean and well stocked, pleasant view to the front and parking is a short walk away at the end of the row. we took our bikes and found a storage shed provided. and fantastic cycle routs in all directions. Nice wood burning stove we purchased extra coal and logs from the local petrol station, found several good places to eat in town and in Crinan. Cottage was very good value for money and the owners were very helpful and gave good advise about local area would recommend for couples or small family.
