A guest review

We enjoyed our stay so much that we would love to return in the near future. The view is stunning and breathtaking.

About the property

If it is views that bring you to this beautiful part of Argyll, then sitting in the conservatory, or on the deck, taking in the scenery over the head of Loch Goil to Ben Donich is going to keep you busy for hours. The activity on the loch, the bird life, the every changing light… picture postcard Scotland

Cobbler View is a detached bungalow in a small development approx. 1 mile outside of Lochgoilhead village. Sitting in an elevated position above Loch Goil, the holiday home is positioned to make the most of the view across the loch and to the mountains of the Argyll Forest Park. The outstanding feature of this house is the conservatory which is accessed from the lounge as well as a spacious deck, more like a viewing platform, taking in the view. This is a wonderful all weather sitting area making the most of its location. Cobbler View is spacious, well equipped for a family holiday and comfortably furnished. All rooms are on one level and may suit guests with limited mobility. 3 steps at the entrance and then everything is on the level.

What the guests say

Simply amazing. We stayed in lochgoilhead for a week in february. Leonard was such a great host from the start. He helped us a lot throughout the booking. We arrived to a beautiful home situated just in front of the loch. The house had stunning views, especially from the conservatory which is in the sofa room. There is a huge flat TV which has Netflix included (good for a movie night in after a long day exploring). In the conservatory there is also a set of binoculars which one can use to take a look at the mountains. In the house there was limited supplies of tea, coffee and other cleaning stuff which helps to keep the space clean while you’re enjoying your holiday. Leonard was so organized with the booking and instructions of the house which made our stay comfortable and pleasant. Recommended sites- Falls of Falloch, Duchanan Castle, Quadmania, Lochgoil cruises, Highland safari. Thanks for everything.
