Beautiful setting! Cabin was very cosy and although not isolated it gave you the feeling of remoteness which was perfect. The owners were very nice and hospitable. The location is a good base for exploring nearby areas, as well as peace and quiet, really loved it.

The view from the property was stunning all week - we did have amazing weather. We loved watching the bird life pass by. Having our own private pontoon for sitting on, and launching the kayak too was an added bonus.The Pink Shop and Cafe both in Benderloch were great and we cycled, or walked, or drove there.Great Break.

We went for a very active week of kayaking, cycling and walking. The chalet was perfect for this as access to the water was great, with good tracks and scenic walks within easy distances.

The lodge is perfectly compact and has everything you need. Views amazing and location ideal. We had an amazing time and will be going back.

We loved the location, so private and peaceful, beautiful views from the property. It was also great because it was about 10 mins from Oban, we would love to go back.

We particularly liked the overall setting, the chalet, the exclusivity and the general feeling of being away from it all! The chalet is positioned very well at the Loch side and the views are magnificent. As it is the only chalet, one has the feel of being very much alone and undisturbed. This added to the overall feel good factor.

The surrounding area was very quiet and peaceful. It was really nice and we were able to sit at the end of the Jetty and just relax as there was no one around. The owners were very pleasant and happy to help. Oban is one of the nicest places we have visited and the locals were lovely.

We stayed here over Christmas and had a lovely stay. The chalet is warm and cosy and in a fabulous location, even though the weather was extremely stormy! We slept really well and enjoyed the fact we were overlooking Loch Etive and had lovely views of the mountains too. We enjoyed great walks nearby, We revisited Port Appin where we stayed in September and also Glencoe. We enjoyed Christmas dinner at the nearby Hawthorn Restaurant which is excellent. Dundonald Landing is a great place to relax and explore the stunning scenery with your dog. We would happily return anytime of year to enjoy it's lovely facilities.

Just spent a wonderful week at this chalet and have come back with sunburn! We wanted a space to relax and enjoy our bikes and kayaks. There was plenty of space for all our kit outside, great access to the water and plenty of places to walk and cycle safely. The owners know the water well, which is really useful. We caught fish for dinner in the loch, had roe deer walk past the door, and a multitude of birds/life to watch from the door. The inside space is small, but feels just like camping but in a much drier space with full amenities. Our only concern was that at the minute it is open to the road while a fence is being constructed, so we had to be careful of the dog. Felt completely at peace in this property.

Dundonald Landing is an excellent chalet located on the shores of Loch Etive. The views from the chalet across the loch were magnificent and watching the wildlife was a treat. The location is absolutely brilliant to use either as a base to tour the highlands or stay more local because there is so much to do or see in nearby Oban and the immediate surrounding area. Whether you want to visit a castle, take a trip to the Isle of Mull, take a wildlife tour, visit the Whisky Distillery or just chill out on the lochside in the evening with a glass of wine this is a great place to visit. The chalet itself, although on the small side, has everything you need. The grounds were perfect for our labrador puppy to roam freely. The owners were very friendly and when we had a small problem they immediately sorted it. Nearby is a wonderful beach at Benderloch which was great for our puppy. Each morning we took him to this fairly secluded beach and he had a fantastic time. Dundonald Landing is a genuine retreat and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Location Location Location, it was perfect. The views were amazing and you have a feeling of peace and tranquility. Not too far away was the beach and some great scenic walks around Benderloch. We were lucky we had great weather on our week and indeed like an earlier reviewer we came home looking relaxed and tanned. I do have a couple of gripes though, and one of them could have easily ruined our stay if it were not that we are a hardy pair and compromised our sleeping arrangements. The bed has been 'cut to shape' with the bottom right hand corner lopped off to fit it into the tiny tiny space between us and the kitchen, i would have rather struggled with a smaller walkway and had a proper full size adult bed that we could both comfortably sleep in. to accommodate this customisation the owners had used some sort of 'memory foam' as a mattress which was incredibly hard and uncomfortable. After a few nights i was missing my bed at home and indeed had to sleep on the settee in order to get a diecent nights sleep. There is room for improvement and more attention is needed for storage, in such a 'tiny' space you must utilise everywhere but there was precious little and we ended up keeping everything in our cases. there is a wet room which opens up directly to the kitchen and its deadly as there are no bathmats so again we had to compromise and lay down kitchen roll before we went into the shower or made sure we wore flip flops. a couple of personal touches would have been nice also, like 'welcome' information, there was nothing and it took an age to work out the oven, we found the wifi password on a post it note crumpled up in the drawer. and i dont think i have ever stayed anywhere like this were there hasnt been at least a pint of milk and a few teabags on arrival, like i saw a few touches would make all the difference but overall the views and the location would sell the place to anyone.

This lovely chalet gave my wife and I the ideal break from our busy lifestyle. Simply wonderful escapism! Looking out over the Loch, mountains in the background and nobody interrupting our own private lochside retreat. Within easy reach of Oban, app. 5 miles, the lovely village of Benderloch, and many fantastic walks , we were able to do as much or as little as we wanted. Evenings spent with a glass of wine/ beer after dinner, and relaxation was the order of the day. No need to rush back for evening meals, or get up at some ungodly hour for a rushed breakfast! We were in charge!! Dundonald Landing is good for one's soul. Rain or shine, it matters not. Enjoy it. Thanks Geoff, ( owner) for making this gem available .
