This cottage is just a great wee place for a getaway from the stressful everyday life. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the owner and when we opened the door we discovered a bright, well decorated good size cottage with a large double door into a private garden. The place was sparkling clean and all appliances, bathroom, towels,...

Had the absolute pleasure of staying here for 5 days on our first trip to Scotland. The accommodations were superb; clean, quiet, comfortable, roomy but cozy. The view is fantastic and the garden lovely. A short drive will take you into beautiful Oban. Really hated to leave but looking forward to going back.

Booked a 3 night stay at Achaleven Byre as our first stop-over for our Scotish touring holiday in May 2013 based solely on its location (near Oban) and TripAdvisor ratings. To say we weren't disappointed would be an understatement. It was a home from home with far more facilities than we have experienced in self-catering accommodation. Beata made us very...

What a lovely cottage. Easy to find and excellent value for money. It had everything we needed and more. The cottage was spotlessly clean and really snug. We will definitely return for another quiet break.

Achaleven Byre is the perfect self-catering get-away. The Byre itself was spotless and had everything we required. The bed was one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in with high quality sheets/bedding ensuring a great nights sleep. Travelling with young children is always a worry, however the Byre was perfect and Beata made sure we had everything we...

My wife and I spent a fortnight at Achaleven Byre. Our fourth visit and already looking forward to our fifth. Everything clean and tidy and there were lots of extras that were appreciated. There are several games to play in the evening and the TriDominoes game was regularly used. Plenty of animal life to see - cows, turkeys, chickens, rabbits,...

This was more than just a holiday let the owners were very friendly and went out of their way to make it a pleasurable stay. There was lovely little touches such as shower caps, lovely shower gel etc in the bathroom and breakfast items, nuts/seeds, milk, tea and coffee were also provided which was a very pleasant surprise. There was...
