The cottage that has everything!!
We generally make a rule that with so many places to visit we don’t come back to the same place twice, we will be breaking this rule for Strathlorn!
The views are unbelievable, the weather changes the view everyday. We had some amazing sunrises, and some stormy weather too, both equally beautiful.
The cottage has everything you could need, and I mean everything!! Sharp knives (something often lacking in self catering accommodation), good water pressure, warm heating, comfy bed, and incredibly clean.
Our ferry from Oban was cancelled on the first day because of the weather so we parked at Port Appin and took the passenger ferry over. We ended up leaving our car on the mainland all week. We did more day trips out as a result. The cottage is a 10 min walk at most from the ferry and everyone we met offered us a lift.
The owners were fab with emails and Denise made sure we were comfortable and gave us the heads up about the ferry, much appreciated!
The amazing views and super friendly people on the Island are just two of the reasons to visit.
Thank you for sharing your property with us!
Thank you so much for your review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Strathlorn and that you were just as enchanted with Lismore as we are. I will send your review to Denise, she will be very pleased to know that your appreciated her help. Denise is an absolute treasure.
Very happy to have you to stay again and my husband will be especially pleased that you noticed the sharp knives!!
Look forward to your next booking.

Beautiful house in a stunning location
The house has a beautiful shoreline view across the loch which allowed sightings of many sea birds, otters and porpoises. The accommodation was very comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen - more than any other we have stayed in. Would definitely recommend a trip over to Port Appin to the Pier House for some fantastic seafood.
Thank you Richard for your positive comments about our house and your holiday. We like to think we have one of the best views in Scotland. There is always something happening on the sea to look at no matter the weather. And of course Ben Nevis is our constant backdrop.
Wildlife watching fiesta!
A fantastic holiday spot. The view from the balcony was amazing and we saw otters, many seabirds and a seal too. The cottage was lovely and warm, spotlessly clean and the shower was powerful and hot. Marilyn, the owner, was always prompt at replying to any questions via email. We are very lucky that the family choose to share this special home with guests. Thank you!
An absolute gem!
What a fabulous cottage! The views from the house are just amazing and I never got tired of watching all the boats go by, including the regular ferry going backwards and forwards to Port Appin. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Just about every appliance in the kitchen to hand so I'll pack a lot lighter when I go back next time. The house is also very warm.
Practically 180 degree panoramic views from the dining room and even the kitchen has a view. Amazing!
We got the boat over to The Pierhouse a couple of times for lunch, which is another fabulous place. We were also lucky enough to see an otter just on the rocks in front of the house as well as 3 swimming beside us on the headland walking towards Port Ramsey. Would highly recommend this place, in fact we booked to go back in February while we were still there!
Absolutely amazing !
Fab place, beautiful bungalow.
Unbelievable wildlife right outside the door.
Perfect in every way!
Strathlorne is a magical place to stay. The views are spectacular; boats, weather and wildlife ensure that something is happening all the time. We were 'glued' to the huge picture windows with binoculars at the ready!
The house itself is unlike any holiday home we've been in, it truly feels like a home from home. Everything is tastefully done and we're already planning our next trip!!
Thank you so much.
Thank you so much for this Holly. We are pleased you had a lovely time. You are correct it is a magical place.
Situated beside the sea on the picturesque Island of Lismore. The house has stunning views North to Ben Nevis and South to the Lynne of Lorn
