“This is one of the best places we have had the pleasure of staying in. The location is ideal for exploring the area and both Niall and his father have some wonderful tips for things to do. Upon arrival, the house was perfectly clean and very cosy and comfortably set up. There were lots of lovely homely touches - which we very much appreciated. The hospitality was superb, we loved learning about the history of the building and being able to experience part of the farm, by feeding the animals, just topped off an already brilliant time. We would whole heartedly recommend Niall's place to anyone, and we are very keen to return.”
We love our cosy , well insulated Shepherds Hut . It has a generous sized single bed with a window view of the old medieval village Barr a Chasteilean and views of Ben Lui and Ben Cruachan at the front . A secluded generous space for one to escape to, surrounded by natural beauty. It has electricity and full tea making facilities and a nice space to sit outside. It has a small toilet and wash hand basin in its own Lui Lodge . During Covid restrictions it has no shower facility
“Dalmally Railway Station is a real working station, so perfectly situated for travelling the local area without a car, but with a rural feel with mountains on all sides and peace and quiet. Liz and Graham's local knowledge will have you out and about and exploring the best scenery nature can offer. Hospitality is second to none, with nothing too much bother and always there with a hot cup of coffee, or even a lovely Scottish supper of local cheeses, smoked salmon and home made bread on arrival to ease the weariness of travel. The rooms are all uniquely restored from the old victorian railway station, with the mens loos converted to an incredible shower block and some rooms with their own washrooms too. Everything was extremely clean and everything had been thought of to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The hospitality even spread to the station dog Angus, who would come to greet me everyday. Such a character and a local legend. When the weather is too bad to be out and about sit back and enjoy the scenery or help out with the sheep and hens. Plenty to do and see and the perfect writers retreat or hikers rest stop.”

“Stayed for one night with my boyfriend and I couldn’t fault the place! Hosts were super helpful when we struggled to find the place - due to our own fault as we didn’t arrive till late so was hard to read signs! Caroline came out and guided us to our parking spot and gave us a quick tour. The Nook itself is super quirky and unique, loved it and the hot tub was great! Highly recommend:)”
