Just to say we had a fantastic week at Snipe. The views were stunning as we're the sunrises and sunsets and the peace and quiet. Only one day's rain so managed to see most of the island. Fenced garden was a bonus, keeping the dogs in and sheep out. The cottage is well equipped and well laid out. Will definitely be back.

A fabulous house, - bright, warm, welcoming, well equipped and with wonderful views across Loch Tuath towards Ulva and Gometra. The welcome gifts - human and doggy - were a lovely thought and much appreciated. We had a lovely week here. Sadly, the weather was against us which meant that we weren’t able to do the trips we had planned. However, we managed to do plenty of walking and the heavy rains meant that the waterfalls were wonderful!!! When we weren’t out and about, Snipe Cottage proved to be an ideal place to relax and appreciate the peace and quiet of the Island. The games room was an added bonus. The beauty of the house is its location but it is a little remote - twenty minutes drive to the nearest village shop in Dervaig. We ate out well, particularly at the Cafe Fish in Tobermory, The Tobermory Hotel, the Boat House on Ulva (lovely home made bread) and the Bellachroy Hotel in Dervaig. I would highly recommend Snipe Cottage. One (hopefully constructive) criticism, would be that the house sign is not very clear, especially on arrival on a grey and murky evening!

Really lovely property in wonderful surroundings. Impeccably furnished and set up with all we could wish for. A clearer idea of distances in times and miles to places of interest and shopping would be helpful to more elderly visitors. Not a problem to us. The sign for Snipe on the road side could be much clearer for late arrivals. A pleasant stay apart for high winds and rain. Jigsaws were a life saver. Nicholas Gale,and friends.
