    Iona Cottage is comfortable, and Chris and Gillian are warm and welcoming hosts. It is well located for the whole area around Oban, and the surrounding forest is lovely. The whole place is very dog friendly. I don't have a dog currently but I like dogs. However, there were a couple of dogs in the other cottages who were extremely "yappy", barking and rushing about whenever anyone went outside or a car drove in. Their owners didn't seem to be bothered about controlling them. It might not be the best place for anyone who does not like dogs.

    The location of this property was lovely for exploring both Oban and the Highlands. As previous reviewers have said the outside of the property belies the interior. Outside area could be tidied up to give a good first impression as the cottage itself is comfortable and well equipped. Initially it was chilly at night but the owner provided plenty of firewood for the fire, and we suspect that the cottage may have been empty prior to our visit. The owner was very friendly and accommodating and responded to queries quickly.

    Lovely cottage in a beautiful location, ideal for walking the dogs! Wood burning stove is a great feature and kept us nice and warm in February. The grounds are lovely, would love to visit again in the summer. Chris was very welcoming and exceptionally dog friendly. We had a brilliant stay and would recommend!
