Introduction

Jenny’s Bay sits in an elevated position within a large enclosed space. No garden as such as the outside space around the house has been designed for outdoor socialising in a patio area. The patio is enclosed and is suitable for young children and a dog. There is a custom built BBQ area. The hot tub, with a loch view, is under a gazebo making it perfect for all year use. You have access to the shoreline as well as a jetty. Bring your canoe, kayak or a trailer sized boat as you can launch them right from the property. Bring your binoculars. Depending on the time of year the gannets put on a marvellous display diving for fish and you can look out for seals, which are common. Porpoises are regular visitors. Loch Goil is a tidal sea loch so depending on the tide there will be a shore line to explore. This is a rural location – you will need a car. There is a taxi service in the village.

Access and entry

Off Road parking for 3 cars. Steps down to the entrance, as well as sloping access from a parking area to one side of the the house. Jenny’s Bay is suitable for any guest with poor mobility.

Hot Tub

Under a gazebo on a spacious patio, the tub has 6 seats plus a lounger.  A nice touch is the individual bathrobes and flip-flops, ideal for going too and from the hot tub. The hot tub is drained, cleaned and re-filled for each arriving party

A striking feature of Jenny’s Bay is the spacious open plan lounge and dining area. Ample seating to comfortably accommodate 8 guests in an ideal social space.

What the guests say

Absolutely perfection. Just spent a week in Jenny’s Bay, 8 adults, a baby, and 2 dogs. It was a wonderful experience, house perfect, kitchen had all necessary utensils, bedrooms very comfortable and hot tub a real treat and made our stay totally relaxing, used every day. The view from the house stunning, watching seals from our window. Lovely walks for our dogs and the younger folks climbed mountains. Directions we got in advance were spot on, can’t wait to go back again.
