Although there were nine of us plus dogs there was lots of space, and we found the two lounges with wonderful sea views very comfortable. The beds and bedding were the best we've experienced in holiday accommodation. Salt seafood restaurant is excellent and reasonably-priced, and only half an hour's walk away. If visiting in May/June don't forget to pack earplugs to avoid a 3am wake-up call from the local cuckoos!
The house is in a wonderful setting for hill and coastal walking, birdwatching - or just gazing at the stunning view out to the Summer Isles. We sampled delicious sea food in local restaurants - 3 within cycle/short drive reach- and there is a well-stocked shop in the village. We had a marvellous day sea-kayaking locally - and a great visit to Handa Isle to see puffins, guillemots and other wild-life.
The house is so spacious and well-equipped - all-in-all a marvellous base for exploring this beautiful area. we hope to be back before long!
Beautiful scenery. The house was perfect. Spacious warm and very family friendly.
Excellent facilities very clean.
On arrival the house was spotless and warm. The property is spacious and the surroundings beautiful.
The owner couldn't have been more helpful or friendly.
The bathrooms are modern with a decent pressure shower and warm water. The garden has two hand made swings.
The kitchen is cosy with a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher.
Conival is in an amazing location - we never tired of the views which seemed to change hour by hour. We wish we had booked for longer. Next time we will! The property is spacious and well equipped. We would have come more prepared if we had realised there was a breadmaker.! The beds are very confortable. There is plenty to do in the local area - Sea Kayaking, Climbing, Cycling, Walking, Exploring beaches and coves. The views are magnificent everywhere you go and everywhere you look. We can't wait to have a chance to return to this amazing corner of Scotland.
It was very kind of Peter to allow us to bring our bundle of little dogs, they really enjoyed the beaches in the area. We were very unfortunate with the weather but when it was clear the sea views of the Summer Isles was wonderful including the 22 seals which had made their home in the bay, We must also say a big thank you to Roy for fixing the water and shower problem so quickly. The cottage was warm and cosy when the weather was unseasonal and the beds were very comfortable with lovely bed-linen (not what you always get in rental cottages).Thank you for our stay.
Four of us stayed at Conival for a week and couldn't have been more happy with the accommodation. Its a spacious house with large rooms and complete with lots of useful items, including games and dvds as well as a wide range of kitchenware so it felt like a home from home. The views from all windows is exceptional - either looking out to see across the summer isles or back towards the hills, including Conival itself. The wildlife on offer is amazing. It was a perfect time to hear cuckoos but we were also treated to a sight of a golden eagle on the first morning and a stag who ventured down to the road at the back of the house that same evening! Its a short walk down to the rocky shoreline from the house which is great for sunning yourself, gazing into rock pools or venturing in for a paddle or swim. The owner of the rental couldn't have been more helpful when we had to slightly change our plans and we're very grateful for their generosity. Our week at Conival was amazing and I'd very much recommend it. Its suitable for families, extended family, two families or just a group of friends like we were.
