"Lovely week in the sunshine"

Really lovely stay here. Accommodation is lovely. Spacious and well equipped. Kitchen well appointed and loads of equipment of you fancy doing a lot of cooking. Gorgeous garden - plenty space for the kids to run about. Parasol was really needed this week as the sun was blazing. Really great to have this for shade - thank you. A very peaceful area, relaxing and gave us a much needed break. Wee minor point is we had to clean out the BBQ when we arrived. Was full of coals and hadnt been cleaned but we did it and cleaned dour after ourselves too easy for the next folks. Lovely Stay and would definitely come back.

Had a really enjoyable week in Ardshellach. The house is beautiful and had everything we wanted. There was always somewhere to visit in the surrounding area. We even woke up to deer in the garden! Wouldn't hesitate to to come back again.

We have recently returned home after our second stay at Ardshellach. The location, overlooking Loch Etive, is fabulous. Ardshellach is in a quiet spot but only 2 miles from a local shop and about 8 from bustling Oban. The garden is large, level and very well maintained. The house is a comfortable, spacious and homely family home, with all necessary mod cons.We would thoroughly recommend it.

The location of Ardshellach is wonderful: a peaceful and beautiful spot with fabulous views and yet by no means isolated. There are neighbours - and the ones we met were very friendly - but, from the main windows, you can see not a single building, even in the distance. There are shops, pubs and restaurants within 2-3 miles and Oban is about 20 minutes away - everything you need can be found there.The area is full of things to do and places to visit and the house contains full information about them all, in the form of a helpful pair of files compiled by the owner and previous guests, as well as copious books on the wider area and leaflets of local interest.The house itself is spacious, with excellent storage and a well equipped kitchen and laundry room. In addition, the gardens are lovely and very well maintained. We were visited by a red squirrel and numerous birds.As proof that we would thoroughly recommend Ardshellach is the fact that, of all the many holiday homes we have rented, this is the one to which we will be returning.


Located at the end of a small, quiet, private road just 7 miles from Oban Ardshellach is a very well equipped holiday home with everything required for an enjoyable stay.
