    This was our 6th visit with a 7th booked for 2019, so we obviously like it and we are probably a little biased. The location on the Loch shore is absolutely fantastic for the views and the wildlife (including porpoises, otter, birdlife and seals). It would be fair to say that the entry and egress from the property on to the main road is a little tricky and takes a little getting used to, but does not detract from the beauty of the place. The cottage is very spacious, clean and comfortable. A very slight issue is the private water supply, which for some time has very evidently been tinged brown from the peat. There is little that the owner can do about this. Advice is given to boil it prior to consuming it, but this does not appeal to us, and we soon run out of the (owner supplied) bottled water and purchase our own. Other than that, we love it and are looking forward to our return.

    A week coping with dirty brown tap water. Anyone reading this needs to also see other reviews on the web about relatively daingerous property steep tight drive onto a road with lorries rushing for ferries. This would be an issue for timid drivers. Owners provide some clean drinking water which two of us exhasted within the week. Cottage needs some basic maintanance. We suffered blocked sink which to be fair the owner did fix when reported. Dirtier than normal water due to a filter issue that did improve after some attention. Failing floor boards in kitchen and main bedroom. The approach of covering the kitchen problem with mats is not ideal as its an area you do walk on a lot. Missing grate and ashpan for the fire.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; The colour of the private water supply is due to peat in the water. The colour becomes darker after periods of heavy rain. The system has filters in-line which are regularly replaced and the whole system (reservoir, holding tank and piping) is cleaned four times a year to prevent any blockage. We provide 20 litres of bottled water per week which most guests find adequate, in fact some guests do not use it at all. I have previously replied to a comment regarding the road and entrance to Artilligan, pointing out that these issues are obviously outwith my influence, although I did write to the road management company (Bear Scotland) offering some ideas regarding traffic management. All guests are advised about the entrance and the water supply when I speak with them before they arrive, there is also information on the websites. I have visited Artilligan on several occasions over the past few weeks and there is no basic maintenance required, there are certainly no loose floorboards (all the floorboards and joists were replaced a few years ago when Artilligan was renovated prior to letting). There is only one mat/runner in the kitchen which is just inside the door to help stop any water or mud from being brought in. Interestingly the floor under the mat is concrete rather than floorboards. The wood burning stove in the lounge has never had a grate or ashpan as it is not designed to burn coal, but just wood or peat. We are very pleased that so many guests enjoy staying at Artilligan, with several returning each year and were delighted to have received for the second time a “Customers’ Choice Certificate”, this time for 2016, for “consistently receiving a score of 9.5 (or above) for the overall rating through the Reevoo customer satisfaction feedback.” We are disappointed not to be able to please all of our guests all of the time, but will continue to try.

    Our stay at Artilligan was perfect. The cottage is in a beautiful, peaceful location, right next to Loch Fyne. It was fully equipped with everything we wanted and needed, and was extremely comfortable. It is fairly isolated but within a few miles either way there were shops. An ideal location to explore the surrounding area, but equally ideal just to sit in the living room and gaze out of the window at the ever changing view. I can't recommend it enough.

    This was our 5th stay at the cottage. The property is spacious and generally comfortable and well equipped. The double bed in the main bedroom is the most comfortable and spacious bed we have experienced in a holiday cottage. The views of the Loch are stunning as always. The only slight issue we had was the current situation with the drinking water. On our previous 2 week stay, there was ample bottled drinking water stored in the garage for the duration of our stay. On this occasion, upon arrival we noted that there was only 24 litres of water stored in the garage/kitchen fridge for our 2 week stay. This is a minor whinge, but we spent an additional £20 on bottled water this time. This has not put us off and we shall be returning at some stage.
