As part of a Family Group-Brown/ Reynolds/Clayton- we had a fabulous time. We known and love this area well ,having visited separately over many years.John and I are keen Kayakers and the pontoon was a perfect facility to introduce our grand children to the activity.They loved playing around there, and hide and seek round the houses , hope they did not disturb you too much! The accommodation suited us with separate units for each family.(My only minus point was I would have preferred a shower unit in the Bothy instead of the bath, so much easier when cold or wet,and the solid plate cooker a pain to use hence the 4)But would not put me off coming again. A Great place, may well see you again. Regards Jean Clayton

Tips:

Our family enjoyed the Oyster Bar, otherwise did not travel far due to Covid.

Tips:

My husband,daughter & i had a wonderful week at staying in no.3 at Oban Seil Farm. The cottage itself was scrupulously clean,comfortable & cosy.Nick's pontoon was a bonus for our daughter & her paddle board.We got lucky with fantastic weather & enjoyed trips to Oban,Easedale & Mull. We would go back to the cottage in a heartbeat & would highly recommend a stay here.The beautiful location,views & peace & quiet is the best we've found.

Great place to stay with children so safe and plenty of space to run around. Accomodation was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Lovely views and farm was lovely and tidy with plenty of walks and places to run and cycle. Great for taking canoes and kayaks and you can leave at the private jetty which is great. Owners are so friendly and made us feel very welcome

Tips:

Go to the other islands such as Luing and visit the cafe at the visitors centre for a fantastic lunch just book before hand. Also easdale is another great place to go for boat trips to corryvrecken. Oban is also nice for the day and if you like sea food visit the pier for the fresh muscles and crabs and all other local seafood you won't be disappointed .

Bette and Nick are brilliant and friendly hosts with lots of interesting stories of outdoor adventures. This is not surprising given that Oban Seil Farm gives instant access to safe waters, beautiful coastlines, wildlife, tumps,humps and marilyns. The cottage was well equipped,comfy, clean and with great views. Highly recommended.

Tips:

Absorb the surroundings. There's so much to do on Seil and the locale. Try island hopping to the tiny islands around about...swim in the sea and quarries, go running: the off road terrain is magic...kyacking is safe, even for novices. Avoid Oban apart from passing through to get the ferry to Kerrera which is wild and rugged.

Fantastic location with great views and walks all around the island. Steadings (our cottage) was very well equipped with everything you need - and more for a self-catered holiday. The furnishings were tasteful and of a high standard. Nick and Bette were very helpful and friendly and had good advice and information on the local area.

Tips:

The pub Tigh an Truish served excellent food and staff were friendly and helpful. The local shop was well stocked with more than just basics. The ferry ride to Luing is worth the trip. We also went on sea water ride - sealife adventures, which was very interesting. Walks around the island were breathtaking.

Nick and Bette were very welcoming, they had lots of helpful directions and info on the surrounding locality, nothing was too much trouble for them. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished and the underfloor heating kept it nice and warm.

Tips:

We stayed for a week in The Bothy, a lovely quiet location with wonderful views of farmland, Balvicar Bay and as far as Scarba; there was a pleasant patio area to enjoy on warmer days. It was very nice to have farm activity going on with sheep wandering by. Ardmaddy Castle gardens, Arduaine,Oban and good walking are all within easy reach. There's a handy local shop/PO which has an excellent range of food and other essentials. We will certainly visit again.

Lovely comfortable cottage, everything we needed, friendly owners. Could have been clearer how to access the property (i.e. go to the back, not where the note was)

Tips:

Good walks from the property although paths are not always easy to find. Pontoon on the lochside is very pretty and worth a visit. Great to have a hand-pulled Loch Fyne beer sat outside the Tigh an Truish overlooking the 'Bridge over the Atlantic'. Worth a trip to Luing Island on the car ferry - very interesting slate works and villages. Would have gone to Easdale Island but very restricted numbers at the moment meant a long wait.

Tips:

Beautiful, quiet island with a pontoon on the sea. Good for splashing about, a little fishing off the pontoon in a quiet setting. Some good walks on the island as well to look for otters although we didn’t spot any. Close to get into Oban, good location.

A fantastic holiday cottage on a beautiful little island. Bette and Nick are very kind and considerate, the house is well equipped with everything including abundant good quality sanitising products upon our arrival. The network is not great due to the remote location, which makes us work much less and have a proper holiday!

Tips:

We took the little ferry to the island of Luing. My daughter saw seals during the short trip on the sea and got very excited. It's a nice little trip if it rains.

We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend for others. We wished we could’ve stayed longer. It was very comfortable and peaceful. A couple of suggestions: Instructions to manage the heating would be good. We were VERY warm at night!!! (Although having said that, we did appreciate how warm and cosy it was on arrival). We have stayed in a number of holiday lets during our travels and this was the first place not to have a small milk, tea/coffee etc. It was not a problem at all but just letting you know if you’re trying to align yourself with other places. :-)

Tips:

We walked down to the bridge one day which was a leisurely stroll and there were lots of crabs to be found in the rock pools once we got there. We also took the car ferry to Luing which was very easy and there is lots to do there. There are many lovely walks on Luing and Seil. We are out at Cuan Mor in Oban one night which we enjoyed, but there were great facilities for cooking at home.

An enjoyable stay but not long enough to make the most everything. The Bothy was homely and a comfortable base for our visit to Seil Island. Home made bread was a real treat.

Tips:

Unfortunately restaurants on the Island are limited to only two and during our stay there was no chef in place in one. If you have plenty of time venture further a feild to find good food. The sights and views are spectacular and lots of history to be soaked up.

Good cafes also on Easdale and at Kilmartin. For self-catering guests, there's a good shop for provisions and post office just down the road. No need for a supermarket!

We had a fantastic trip to Seil- Bette and Nick welcomed us in and we enjoyed chatting to them throughout our stay when our paths crossed in the garden! The bothy is perfect for a couple, a lovely place to be based to enjoy the fantastic surroundings, a great size with everything you would need. We particularly loved the views enjoyed from all parts of the farm.

Tips:

Seil is an excellent to base yourself from- we had a fabulous full day walking from the farm all round he island, also taking the ferry across to Easedale for a walk and lunch there. We ventured north of Oban for a walk and swim at a great beach up there. We also went to Kerrera oj the ferry for a fantastic for a day out, we ran round the island and enjoyed lunch on the island at the tea room. All places recommended!

We had such a lovely stay at house number 1 . The Accomodation was spotlessly clean, and the kitchen well stocked with utensils, plates etc. Hot water was ample, I loved the shower We also had a few cooler days but the house was easily warmed with the storage heaters. The setting is beautiful, with views of the sea and whole area quiet, peaceful and relaxing. There were people staying in the other houses, but we weren’t disturbed by them at all . The hosts are extremely friendly and on hand if you need anything . We had a lovely couple of days and definitely be back .

Tips:

We only stayed 3 nights however we managed to pack in loads of local walks on the island . On our return, we would get a map as 4G can be unpredictable (which we didn’t mind as it’s nice to be tablet free !) also bring some binoculars as there’s loads of wildlife and birds. Easdale is a great day out, as is the walk down the Crinan canal. The pub is in walking distance, the restaurant was being refurbished, however I’m intrigued to see the finished product.

Fantastic location for a quiet stay. Views amazing and plenty of walking both on the Island and around the farm. Great access, only 15 mins from Oban with all facilities, shops. Cottage on farm was idylic, clean and plenty of space. Facilities were good, everything we needed except hairdryer and wooden spoon! Mind you if we had asked they probably would have lent us one. Very welcoming, accommodating. Definately want to return.

Tips:

Location of cottage is great for views and a quiet stay. Plenty of walking on island and around farm, inlets, lanes etc. Oban is only 15 mins drive away for all facilities, and transport links. Would be a great place to bring the dogs next time, space, etc. Lots of forest walks around Oban, lots to see and do in Oban, Kerrera Island is a must with it's walk to the castle and little tea shop. Ferry crossing is fun, only a few minutes. Loch Ness easily accessible for a day trip and plenty of other places to visit all within reach of Oban/Seil Island.

A really cosy cottage in a beautiful location. We stayed in cottage No 3, which was warm, welcoming and extremely well furnished. Located about 30 mins from Oban, this is the perfect place for anyone seeking, peace and quiet in a picturesque setting. The owners, were friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

Tips:

There are lovely walks from the cottage door with magnificent views around every corner. Venturing further afield, we can recommend a trip with West Coast Tours - tickets available just near the port. We took the Mull/ Iona trip. A ferry from Oban to Mull, a bus the length of this island, then a short, smaller ferry to Iona. It proved to be a really lovely trip in every way and excellent value. Lunch at the Argyll Hotel on Iona was extremely good - do try the chowder - delicious. We also enjoyed the Waterfront Resturant in Oban. Serving a wide range of high quality, very fresh fish, this friendly place also enjoyes nice views across the bay. The early bird menu is particularly good value and unlike some places, there is no pressure to rush. We also bought great shellfish from The Green Shed, perfect for eating at the cottage.

I brought my disabled mother as she had previously stayed with my sister and spoke highly of it. I found it an excellent location and the Bothey was superb. The scenery is quite breath taking.

Tips:

Be prepared to travel as with any where in Scotland attractions are far and wide. This is a great location for walkers to stay close to base.

Very nice and clean place in rural aeria 45 minutes drive south from Oban, perfect restfull place to stay amongst sheeps, rabbits, perfectly reachable with the very kindest hosts. Betty and Nick are very warm and social People. We stayed at the small cottage bucky, perfect for 2 People, fully equiped with good beds an a bath. The bigger cottages looking perfect as well, Perfect in the Easdale aeria. Can recommend it, good value for what you get

Tips:

If you are looking for a place to stay near Oban, Easdale, Kilmartin is this perfect!!

Myself and my two young daughters spent an AMAZING five at Nick and Bette's on the Isle of Seil. Oban Seil Farm is a lovely place for a family holiday, and they are wonderful hosts. The tone for our stay was set when Bette invited my older daughter to bake bread on the first morning we were there. Feeding the chickens and sheep were also welcome additions to our holiday routine. If have kids they will love it.

Tips:

Easdale Island is definitely worth a visit, especially if the sun is shining. Look out for dolphins on the short boat trip across.

Owner Response:

It has been very quiet here since you left, I have nobody to save some pancakes for and nobody to share my hairbrush with. We fell in love with your kids as sooon as they arrived, and to be honest a charming dad is always a bonus. Please come back soon, We always need bakers and shepheardesses here. We still have not got any lambs, we are out on the hills 3 times a day and still no lambs. I wish I'd taken some photos of the girls, next time!

Just posted review to Trip Advisor: We recently stayed here for a family holiday with a baby and toddler. The location could not have been better and the owners, Bette and Nick are the friendliest hosts you could meet. The cottage itself was clean, comfortable and included everything you could possibly need including Wi-Fi, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave etc. Lots of extras were provided that we had not expected such as dishwasher tablets, tin foil etc and the kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans, casserole dishes. The location is very peaceful, with lots of walking possible from the farm or in the local area, very safe for children. We were very kindly allowed to take our toddler to collect fresh eggs from the hen house and he just loved collected apples from the bucket at the farm to feed the horses every day. A short walk away is a private pontoon, long table and BBQ. We enjoyed some time in our sailing canoe there and even a swim, brrrr. Could not recommend Oban Seil Farm more highly and we will definitely be back again.

Lovely location, spacious cottage, friendly owners, good for a dog to come too: we had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. Only downside is that internet is poor and there is no mobile phone access - though you might think that is a bonus if you want to "get away from it all"!

Tips:

SeaLife Adventures trip is excellent. The Puffer Bar and Restaurant is very good too. A walk to the top of the hills at Ardencaple will give you fabulous views in all directions - just choose a clear and sunny day.

We had a fabulous stay recently in The Bothy. Nick and Bette made us very welcome and looked after our every need. The accommodation was super, spacious and clean with all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay. The quiet location was a bonus. Would thoroughly recommend, despite the 550 miles drive home afterwards. Steve, Rosemary & Alice Walker

Lovely cottage and location suited us well for our short stay. Would have like a shower and the kettle probably need shellacking as it boils very slowly. Otherwise well equipped and comfortable we will likely be back. If we were staying for a !longer time a washing machine would be helpful.

Tips:

Try to visit Lying island and Ardmaddy castle garden a d Scammerdale loch.

Haven of peace and tranquility, comfortable and well equipped. The only downside as far as we were concerned is the lack of a proper shower - shampoo attachment on the bath taps and low water pressure are not really adequate. Mr and Mrs Hunter are very friendly, helpful but unobtrusive.

Tips:

There are two restaurants on the island both with limited menus consisting mainly of seafood and a post office/General store. There is no mobile phone signal (hurrah). Wi-fi is available.
