    Fantastic cottage with great amenities. We loved our week their and would love to go back. I would agree with comments about the decking, however, it didn't effect our enjoyment as we didn't really use it. Highly recommend the cottage we had a fantastic holiday.

    Very pleasant well equipped bungalow. However the mattress was very uncomfortable and needs replacing, we came home a day early due to this. Only 2 logs, no kindling and just one small shovel of coal for the first night's fire. The decking is not safe and needs removing, as an accident on it could lead to litigation. The information folder needs updating as some places have closed for good, and others have very reduced opening after september. Kames/Tighnabruich and the Kyles area is very scenic and overall we had a relaxing holiday.

    Cottage was very comfortable, very clean plenty of essential items for cooking etc. Was surprised to find other items like condiments, washing up liquid, dish washer tablets etc. Outside area needs some TLC, decking a bit dated.

    Lovely little cottage. We had a fantastic stay. It just needs a bit of TLC especially the wooden seating area outside. When we first arrived the TV wasn't working but the hosts went out of their way for us. They fixed the Sky, brought us DVDs and a thoughtful care package. We would happily stay here again.

    The cottage is not too bad inside, but needs some maintenance. Some doors did not open properly, the shower was not as clean as I would expect, it needed a shower curtain and a non slip mat. The water in the kitchen sink was not hot enough for washing up, only the grill oven was working. Outside the deck is poorly maintained, uneven and dangerous. The mattresses are in need of replacement. No milk was left for us, which would have been a disaster, had we arrived 30 minutes later, as the village shop closes before 7 pm. The directions were inadequate for anyone who has no idea what ‘shinty’ is I.e. anyone NOT from Scotland. The entry gate is an issue, we had to leave it open the whole time we were there, as there is nowhere safe to park close to the gate in order to open it and close it. The steps into the entrance are steep and slippery, not ideal for those with limited mobility. A ramp or rail would help, my 93 year old mother slipped off the bottom step, luckily our car broke her fall, or she may have ended up In hospital.

    The cottage Carnethy is a really lovely cottage inside. With lovely modern facilities. The garden was a great size and had a lovely view. But the only downside was the decking outside the cottage. It is really really run down and in parts I think dangerous. I was very glad we did not have any grandchildren with us as it could have turned out to be a real hazard. On first arriving at the cottage before going inside my husband and I just looked at each other in dismay as the decking really is an eyesore. Thankfully inside we were not disappointed. Its had a lovely modern kitchen and bathroom with good facilities. Although the previous occupants must have used the fire as it hadn't been cleaned out. But the cottage is a in a lovely part of the country. There is a useful shop nearby that sold everything and a good hotel in Kames just down the road near a small beach. We had a really lovely week there and the weather was fabulous. Its just a shame that the decking is in such a bad state of repair as it distracts from what is a great place to stay. ps We arrived after 6pm on the Saturday, and had forgotten to bring milk. The shop was shut so be warned to bring everything with you if you are arriving after 5pm.
