The Byre, Kilchoan, Ardnamurchan
The Byre a semi-detached cottage in the heart of the village of Kilchoan, is an ideal retreat for couples visiting the untamed beauty of Western Ardnamurchan.

All local amenities are within easy walking distance including a friendly pub, local shop, and regular ferry sailings to Tobermory, on the Isle of Mull.

Home from Home – for humans and furry friends
“My husband and I loved this place (so did our greyhound!). It was home from home – just perfect. John and Jacqui were great hosts, they couldn’t have done more for us or to make us feel welcome. Will definitely return.” Emma
“We had a great time at The Byre. Near the end of the most twisting, narrow, but beautiful road you can imagine, miles from anywhere. Lovely welcome from John and Jackie, the log stove lit with smoke coming out of the chimney made us feel at home straight away. Make sure you go to Sanna beach – one of the most beautiful and empty beaches we’ve ever seen. Don’t panic about the weather or the midges – weather was fantastic and it was too breezy for midges!”
“John was a fantastic host, nothing was too much trouble. It was our first visit and it won’t be our last. Most wonderful and beautiful part of the UK. Even our dogs loved it, they have been a bit grumpy since we got back. Would recommend to everyone that reads this review, add this to your bucket list guys you won’t regret it“
“Home from home. Everything you could wish for was provided. Location and views wonderful. Log fire every night a dream end to the day. Would recommend Steading Cottages very highly. Lovely Garden to relax in. All in all an extremely relaxing holiday location, with no noise what so ever.“
