Pine martens at Craig

I am delighted to have received this lovely review by email, plus some amazing photos of the pine martens at Craig. Thank you so much Cath and Will!

“At the beginning of August we spent a glorious, perfectly peaceful week at Craig cottage, beside Loch Etive. This delightful little cottage has an olde-worlde atmosphere and a very cosy sitting-room with an open fire (with a plentiful supply of logs kindling and briquettes). We spent every evening there in the candlelight watching a family of pine martens gorging themselves on peanut-butter and jam from the bird table and window box. Even our spaniel Pip stayed perfectly quiet and watched mesmerised !

The cottage was also perfectly equipped with everything one could need in the kitchen and we even managed to cram a whole weeks worth of food in to the little but efficient gas fridge. The bed room was also very cosy with a very comfy bed.

From Craig we walked every day mainly up the track to Cadderlie bothy and on up to Dail pier and then further on to Barrs, crossing the bridges over two magnificent tumbling rivers. But we found that the best view of all was from the little jetty just down from the cottage – just awesome !

A beautiful little place in a magnificent setting with total peace and tranquility – no sounds but for the birds twittering, the bees buzzing and the little byrne tumbling down beside the cottage – and we did not see another single person for a whole week ! A perfect destination for people who want to get away from modern life, be surrounded by mountains and a magnificent Loch and find rejuvenation.

Rosy Thomson was very pleasant and helpful and made sure that everything we could need was there for us. We would highly recommend Craig cottage. ”
