“Lovely cottages with fantastic view.”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

From London via Glasgow airport, Springwell was so easy to reach and is totally idyllic from arriving to leaving. The cottages are easy to find and well signed on the main road. In our cottage the kitchen was well equipped, had a peaceful sitting room with freeview TV and very comfortable beds . The view in the morning was beautiful and means that you will never want to spend time in the cottage during the day. The walk behind the cottages is well pathed and offers an even more spectacular view. The beach just at the bottom of the road is perfect for kids, swimming (if you are brave!) and has a lovely BBQ and picnic table for sunny lunches. The pub is within walking distance and they were very friendly- we ate there twice in one day! However if you fancy cooking Ballahulish Co-op is well stocked and is only a quick drive away. A small drive towards fort william are the Righ Falls which are definately worth a walk to see. Springwell offers a very homely retreat that feels pleasantly remote with all the luxuries to making a successful break on your doorstep. I highly recommend and will be returning.

Very comfortable accommodation, and those views are something else! I've been twice now and certainly plan to return. I would highly recommend Springwell Holiday Homes, as well as the surrounding area of Onich. A great place to base yourself for fantastic walks, sea kayaking, and the local pubs and restaurants are pretty good too. The accommodation has everything you'd need, as well as outdoor seating and balconies to make the most of the scenery.

We stayed in Colonsay, which is a great cottage, with lots of space, stunning views from the kitchen & sitting room, lots of parking space and a picnic table outside so we could have lunch in the sunshine (stunning weather even in November!).
There are some great walks nearby, lots to do and to see. Cannot recommend this place more highly, it was great and I would love to go back!

These are brilliant cottages with great facilities. But the best part is the setting - it really is a beautiful part of Scotland with incredible views of the loch and surrounding hills. Nothing beats sitting outside the cottages with a cool beer in hand watching the sun set over the water. A great place to stay!

Compact comfortable cottage with magnificent views over Loch Linnhe down to the bridge at Ballachulish. Lovely scenenery around Glencoe. Enjoyed our stay. Living area & kitchen have the views. Bathroom & bedrooms are quite small but reasonable. Quiet secluded setting yet not far away from public transport. Close to Mallaig for trips to Skye, Rum & Eigg. Would recommend ride on cable car up Ben Nevis. Glorious views in any weather. Site manager very helpful & well informed.

Lovely situation for these cottages, amazing view of mountains and lochs, and the little beach area was a real bonus. We spotted an otter close to the shore whilst playing with the dog on the beach. We all thought the cottage was excellent value for money and would stay there again when next in the area. Very clean, well stocked, warm and comfy. No complaints!
