Inveralt Cottage Also known as Forest Lodge, this property is situated in a quiet and peaceful location in the hamlet of Barcaldine, just 12 miles north of Oban in the heart of the beautiful north Argyll countryside.

Superschönes ruhiges kleines Haus zum wohlfühlen
Meine Familie und ich verbrachten drei Nächte in dem toll renoviertem und ausgestattetem Cottage. Aufgrund der etwas abseits gelegenen Lage sehr ruhig. Das Haus super sauber und mit Liebe und Geschmack eingerichtet. Der Garten war für die Kinder toll zum Spielen. Der Besitzer John übergab die Schlüssel petsönlich. Wir erhielten Einweisung in die Haustechnik und Wandertips. Können das Haus auch wenn es etwas abseits liegt gut weiterempfehlen

Excellent
We spent a lovely week here at the beginning of May. The cottage was ideally situate for visiting Oban and the surrounding area. It was very comfortable, well equipped, and spotlessly clean. We really appreciated the peace and quiet and very taken watching a red squirrel in the surrounding trees. I much appreciated meeting the owner on arrival who couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you John. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Perfect cottage
What a lovely wee cottage, a mix of modern and original features. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay. John the owner was more than helpful. Located a bit off the beaten track so having the car was helpful, however, there are forrest cycle tracks and walks to pass the time.

Beautiful Cottage!
Inveralt Cottage is a fantastic holiday home and finished throughout to a very high standard. The cottage was spotless and on our arrival John, the owner could not have been more helpful. The location is excellent, off a quiet road and so peaceful but only 1/2 a mile or so from the Loch and the main road so makes travelling around a breeze. Lots of nearby activities too. The cottage is about a 20 minute drive into Oban for all the ferries to the nearby islands, including Mull. If you are a keen cyclist or walker/runner there are cycle paths on your doorstep.

Hidden Gem
Sad to have to leave this beautiful cottage after our fab 5 day holiday. It is the sort of place that you don't want to tell everyone how lovely it is for fear that it will become so popular that we won't be able to book it again!! It is in a beautiful.secluded & peaceful spot that is so handy for walking, cycling or boating. We brought our RIB with us & there was ample parking at the cottage for both trailer & car. We enjoyed a few days out on the water exploring Eriska, Lismore & Mull & much to our delight spotted many seals. John, the owner, was very friendly & helpful & has kitted the cottage out as if he were living in it himself. Very well equipped & very good quality too. Not your stereotypical cramped cottage...it was very spacious for us three adults...no clutter but still cosy nonetheless. Sadly we didn't have the weather to enjoy the garden & outside dining but we did still barbeque & eat inside. It is rural enough to be relaxing & tranquil but near enough to Castles, Lochs & towns, we loved Oban & had dinner twice in Cuan Mor as the food & atmosphere was great. The Argyll Potter is worth a visit too ( beside the Sea life Centre) he has some really lovely stuff. Safe to say Inveralt Cottage now holds a very special place in our hearts & we will most certainly be back.

Perfect cottage
Inveralt Cottage has been renovated to a very high standard with tasteful decoration and modern appliances. John was there to show us around and we were very comfortable. The double bed mattress is very low to the ground and may be difficult for some people to get out of, it was comfy however. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back.

Excellent !
John est un hôte merveilleux ! L'endroit est super joli. Le cadre est calme. Tout est équipé. Et la qualité du lieu par rapport est vraiment géniale ! Tout est neuf ! C'était vraiment un séjour en famille parfait. Et très bien situé ! Je conseille fortement ! Seul bémol le wifi n'était pas encore installé. Mais ce n'était qu'un détail et sans importance !
