Activities such as kayaking, sailing, waterskiing, jet skiing and more are available to those who are looking for a little excitement and adventure. With some fantastic walking and cycling trails around the Lochs too, there is something for everyone.

If you are looking to plan in a few day trips during your stay, then the Isle of Mull is definitely worth the ferry ride. Offering a perfect island retreat you will not be disappointed with the endless stunning landscapes and the dramatic coastline that Mull displays. Or visit one of the pretty little towns that are dotted around the island to experience local island food and culture at its very best.

The cottage was clean and tidy on arrival. It is comfortable and spacious and we particularly liked the conservatory. It's only a short walk in to the centre of Stontian and location was a very good base to explore the area. We would highly recommend the cottage.

A peaceful and cozy country-side location, close to a grocery shop, a post and a few restaurants. While the cottage may not be decorated according to the latest trend, that gives it part of its rustic charm. The cottage is very cozy, with a beautiful sun room. A nice, peaceful place to have as a base for Western Highland adventures, as Fort WilliamRead more is approx. 1 hour drive away (including a 5 min ferry trip), and it's easy to get to Glenfinnan and other places in the North too.
