very nice house in a peaceful location
A complete ‘get away from it all’ holiday in beautiful surroundings.
We were a little apprehensive going off grid to the Island of Lismore but we were totally blown away with the location, the views and the property! It was everything we had hoped and more. The views were breath taking and we’re certainly going to miss looking across to the mountains and watching the boats going up and down the loch.
The house was stunning and incredibly well equipped. There wasn’t anything more we could have asked for.
For anyone worrying about being away from it all, we brought groceries in Oban but the post office/shop on the island was very well stocked and open daily. The foot ferry to Port Appin can also be taken to access restaurants and a coop. The heritage centre and cafe on Lismore was easily within cycling and walking distance and does extremely good cakes! They also do curry evenings and fish and chip suppers.
Thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful home is a stunning location, we really didn’t want to come home!
Wonderful views from comfortable, well equipped accomodation on the beautiful island of Lismore.
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!
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
