Fantastic house in wonderful surrounding
We stayed with 8 persons (including toddlers) at "Teach Aisling" for 8 nights and all of us enjoyed unforgettable holidays in this special place. The location is ideal: just a couple of miles away from Oban where you can take ferries to islands, go for shopping or the occasional ice cream, but still very calm and remote in its location at the end of South Shian and just metres away from Loch Creran's shores. The surrounding landscape with the view of the mountains was constantly changing its spectacular colours and light. The children played a lot in the garden, while we enjoyed breakfast or a BBQ on the terrace. Whoever is into water sports seems to be right at "Teach Aisling" too. The house itself is spacious, well equipped, very clean, and has a cosy personal feel. Mandy was always available for questions via phone or mail and made us feel very welcome with her friendly messages and helpful information. We are already thinking about coming again!
A wonderful house in a spectacular location
Teach Aisling must be one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in! The location is superb with changing views depending on the weather and the tide. We were very lucky to watch otters, seals, herons and Canada geese as well as lots of other bird life.
Nobody wanted to go home and we all hope we will have a chance to return to the comfortable well-equipped house in it's spectacular setting.
This house is Awesome and the owners are a pleasure to deal wilh
An amazing get away from it all holiday, but so much more to do if you want to. I personally spent all the time at the house, as i found it hard to tear myself away from the stunning ever-changing view. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly think of, and some. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for that something different in a holiday, close enough to all the amenities you could wish for, yet so quiet that the silence is scary. Mandy made us most welcome when we arrived a tad early, and it was no problem at all. All going well, we hope to return next year as believe me there is nowhere anywhere quite like Teach Aisling. Thank you, George, Linda and family
Thank you George for the kind words.
I am so pleased you had a lovely relaxing holiday. The house is very special and is located in a magical part of the west coast.
You were the best guests and are welcome back anytime.
The house was lovely and clean when we arrived. The views over the Loch were amazing and as the weather was fabulous it was a joy to just sit in the sun and watch the wildlife.
The house is very well equipped and had everything that we needed, comfortable bedrooms and plenty of showers.
There is plenty to do in the area so we will be back!
"A real dilemma"
Teach Aisling is a true gem of a holiday home, so it is 'A real dilemma when describing how much we are enjoying our time here! If we tell to many people how fantastic and special the home is, they will want to book it and it will become to busy.... On the other hand who wouldn't say what a thoroughly relaxing time we have had, can't wait till the next time. On the fist day we watched two young seals swimming past, then just as the tide was almost out we looked on in awe as an otter fished for its lunch, that really was special, for many a once in a lifetime experience seeing an otter in the wild.
We will not be able to help ourselves from telling our friends what a special place 'Teach Aisling is and are already planning our return.
