A lovely warm, comfortable family house. Plenty of space for wet weather gear, wellies etc. Spotlessly clean.

Very nice spacious cottage with a great view over Taynuilt. The area is very quiet, and the large garden was great to sit out in and enjoy. Springbank was very clean, and had all the cooking/cleaning equipment which we needed during our stay. Additionally, lunge with fire was very comfortable. Hope to be back one day!
