OWNER HAD THOUGHT OF IT ALL! WONDERFUL PLACE.

  • 4 of 5
Blaven is one of the best places we've ever stayed! Spent a wonderful holiday there with great friends and precious memories. Rooms are large, beautifully decorated and so comfortable. Layout of the house is very nice and functional. Overall the property is so welcoming and the owner has thought of pretty much every need. The reason I haven't given the property 5 stars is because of the lack of hot water two nights in a row. Even after the property manager came and changed the settings, we still didn't have enough hot water towards the end of the day. If you're renting this property, please do ensure that the water heaters in the utility room are set to the 'on' setting, not automatic or timed. Other than that one issue, the property is fabulous! Highest recommendations without any reservations!

WONDERFUL LARGE FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a large house to take a family of 11 (age range 20 months to pensioner) for a week and came across Blaven. We found the accommodation easily and were immediately impressed with the property. What you see on the web is what you get in reality. The property was immaculate when we arrived and catered for all ages within the group. A large range of activities within the house, and a superb barbeque in the garage, made for a wonderful week. The views from the house are stunning and when you do the circular walk around Kereera Island, you can see the prominence of the house on Pulpit Hill.
Fabulous sea food restaurant on the quayside - highly recommended but book well in advance. For the sporting type, the golf club at Glencruitten is a real gem, so much so we managed 2 rounds in 1 day. Extremely friendly team greeted us on 1st tee and explained every hole - which we needed. Also nearby is the Inverawe Smokery where you can practice your fly fishing and, if fortunate to catch anything, can keep up to 4 fish.
If you want peace and quiet, Blaven has it. If you want activities close by, Blaven has it. If you want decent long or short walks nearby, then Blaven is the place for you.

I can highly recommend Blaven for large family getaways as it has something for everyone.

Kind regards

The sheer variety of interesting locations in the Highlands make touring around worthwhile - while the views and vistas on the way are a further bonus. Some attractions reflect the wealth of the area's heritage, from prehistoric cairns to stately homes and castles.

Others are specific natural features, impressive on their own account - for example, the Corrieshalloch Gorge near Ullapool or the Quirang on Skye. Then there are the wildlife attractions, which range from TV close-ups of nesting eagles to wildlife parks and rare breed farms. Whatever your preferences, variety is guaranteed.
