Customer Reviews of Rhunacairn, Loch Etive - Sleeps 7

1st comment: Beautiful location and accommodation and we were pleased to find it had a dishwasher which iit did not mention on the website! Fabulous enclosed garden, and only a very quiet track between the house and the loch side. It was a bit more pricey than we would usually pay for this size of accommodation at this time of year, especially since fuel was not included, but otherwise we could not fault this lovely well equipped accommodation. April 2012.

2nd comment: Beautiful location on the lochside. Great fun mucking around on inflatable kayaks. Easy walking from the cottage. Beautiful fishing in the Black Lochs. My 10 year old daughter caught her first trout. March 2012.

3rd comment: Lovely clean homely holiday cottage with all facilities in wonderful setting. Ideal for older children. July 2010.
