The cottage is in a rural beautiful setting. It’s old, and small and lacks proper rental amenities. We’ve been traveling in 6 countries for 3 months and this was the worst place we stayed at. The cottage is not remote as the pictures shown, but smack next to the main house of t…

Response from Johanna:
Dear Willem and Family Thank you for your review, I am glad you liked the surroundings and the farm. As you can appreciate it is very difficult to retrospectively improve on any of the issues you raised in your review. The property, built in 2001, has double glazing and underfloor heating (powered by the wood burning stove) throughout. It has a couple of electric heaters and an electric blanket to provide additional warmth. It is set next to the Main Farm House (also a holiday let) 3 kilometer up a farm track, surrounded by 10000 acres of fields and woodland; to most people this would count as a remote location. I had contacted you before your arrival to apologies for me not being able to welcome you personally. I also informed you of the whereabouts of the keys and how to access the property. My husband and I had to travel down South to see his mother in hospital (a family emergency that was difficult to foresee). My son purposefully stayed behind to greet and welcome you. He offered to cater to your needs, offered his help and support if you needed it. That it was raining on your arrival is unfortunate but, with all due respect, was out of our control. It had been sunny and very warm in Scotland on the days before, as I had mentioned in my email to you. I am disappointed you did not raise any of the aformentioned issues with my son or at the very least email me your concerns at the time. The lady who cleans the Cottage professionally and who works for the local Inn, lives close by. She would have had no issue fixing the errors she may have made. The water is heated by electricity, operated by a switch (which has the words ‘Hot Water‘ written next to it). It is easy to find and even easier to operate. The system heats the water within 30minutes.The WiFi password is printed on the router (sitting on the kitchen work surface), which also has a QR code for quick connectivity. As you said yourself, we do have great reviews for our property and there is a reason for that! We do take care of our guests and take our customer service very seriously. However it is very difficult to fix problems that you are not being made aware of. My son offered his help and support at your arrival and considering that you did not once take him up on his offer I find it unfair to retrospectively complain in such public manner.

A georgeous remote location, quiet as a church and more beautiful than most! The whole house heater worked great and all other necessary amenities were provided. Johanna and Niles were terrific hosts as were their pups. The Kilchrenan Inn at the bottom of the hill provided 2 terr…

Overall had a great experience. Joanna was out of town and the family had a lot going on so a couple of things were forgotten (i.e. Towels and soap). There was also limited direction on how to properly check in. Other than that Joanna was very helpful in getting us towels while s…

Johanna was the most wonderful hostess and my experience couldn't have been better! The farmhouse is as beautiful and secluded as I'd hoped, and I'd go back in a heartbeat. There are cows and sheep on the property, and everything I left or returned home, I'd encounter herds cross…

A great place to get away from it all while still being close enough for day trips to Oban, Mull, and Glencoe. My daughter loved going on walks and seeing the sheep and cows as well as playing with the super friendly dogs. We weren't sure we could last a week without internet, bu…

We loved our stay at the Cottage at Ballimore! It was a perfect getaway! The hosts were wonderful and we very much enjoyed chatting to learn more about the history of the area. The walk down the the loch side hotel for tea was one of the best experiences of the whole trip. The ve…

I left Berlin in 2001 to study in Glasgow, Scotland. Now with two small children I enjoy living on our farm in the hills behind Oban on the Westcoast of Scotland. We do not always have access to internet, which is why I might not always respond to enquiries super quick!
