    Had a fantastic time.Robert the owner was so helpful and always available if needed.Accomodation perfect and views stunning! Hot tub an added bonus even when it was snowing.Everything catered for - plenty DVD’s,games etc Netflix too!Lovely beach 5 minutes walk away.Robert and Justine have worked very hard to make this a comfortable easy place to stay and the artwork from their daughter that decorates Jill is a lovely personal touch. If you are looking for an unusual place to stay and quiet this is it! Well done guys!

    Jill Strawbale House was absolutely stunning, and I cannot recommend this property enough. The rooms are beautifully designed, well-equipped and boast luxury on every level. The communications and help we received from the owners were first class, the views from each room are spectacular and the furnishings create the ultimate luxury holiday! It is clear the owners have put a lot of time and effort into making the property eco-friendly; we were very impressed! The location is fantastic, not only do you have the sights of the loch, snow topped mountains, and woodlands from your balcony, you are only a short distance from Strontian village where we were delightfully surprised to find a beautiful café, restaurant, petrol station and general food stores. Not only this, for fellow Harry Potter fans, many of the filming locations are only a drive away from the property – we were so happy! We were visited by the cutest Pine Marten on our second night and stumbled across other wildlife on our explorations around the local area including herons, herds of wild deer, highland cows and golden eagles – you just feel like you’ve stepped into another life where day-to-day stresses just melt away; it was the perfect getaway for our anniversary! Thank you so much to Rob and Justine. We will definitely be returning to Jill!

    Fantastic place to stay , very clean and well equipped. Communication throughout was greatly appreciated. Would highly recommend this beautiful property to others local area had the most stunning scenery . Local shop was highly stocked should you need any essentials, prepare yourself if going in the winter months for local attractions not being open. Overall a fantastic place to stay and get away from the world. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Rated

    Had a great stay at Jill, fantastic property , loved the hot tub. Nice and relaxing location. You'd need to use your car if you wanted to venture further a field , unless you're just there for walking. Corran ferry is handy to get to fort William , otherwise it's a good hours drive around the peninsula but stunning scenery on the way . Using the ferry frequently can be expensive, £8.50 each way unless you have a blue badge!

    We have stayed in the Highlands many times before but never in a property as perfect as Jill. The property is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Location is perfect if you like stunning scenery and peace and quiet. The views from the property are fantastic and we even had a visit from a Pine Marten most evenings.

    Beautiful house with beautiful views



    out of 10

    Spent a lovely week here chilling out, enjoying everything this area has to offer. Great base to get around the area, lots to do and see. Local amenities were also good. Thoroughly enjoyed the cottage and all that it offers. Every day was a new adventure for us, not knowing what we would end up seeing and experiencing. Every day we woke up to different views as the weather changed, and great for stargazing for the hot tub.

    A wonderful holiday in an amazing home in a stunning location.
