Beautiful place
The cottage was very large ,with 4 bathrooms the bedrooms were large and comfortable the only downside was the lack of wardrobes in all bedrooms and we found the television very small for the size of the lounge. I know you don't go to watch television but when the weather is not to good and you have small children you need somethig of a decent size to watch . But you can get over that and overall we were very pleased with the cottage and I would recomend it for your holiday as it is in a beautiful area and the cottage had fantastic views from most of the windows and had a nice enclosed garden.I just wish it had been in better times and not throughout the restrictions with covid 19.

Post new year relaxation
We stayed here for a few days from the 2nd to the 5th January 2020. The cottage was lovely, very clean & welcoming. It had everything we could have wanred including cot & high chair for our 6 month old granddaughter & unlimited logs for the fabulous log fire. The surrounding area is stunning with plenty walks for our dogs. Andrew & Sheila were perfect hosts who gave us our pivicy but were also on hand if needed! Thanks you both it was the perfect break to re-charge before getting back to work! We would love to return & hopefully one day we will. Susan Craig & family! X🤞

Picturesque spot, to chill and relax.
Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Shelduck cottage. The cottage is located in a picturesque spot at the head of loch Riddon. The house was clean with adequate facilities ,a well equiped kitchen , comfy beds ,with the woodburning fire making the evenings nice and cosy , with the views from the windows looking onto the loch, delightful, The decked terrace lends itself to barbecues and quiet evening drinks-- this house has a lovely ambience. Its a convenient base to explore the Kyles of Bute ,"the secret coast", and most places on the west coast. Andrew and Sheila, were always accomodating when needed.
