Excellent location and very cozy cottage

This lovely cottage is clean, cozy, and very welcoming. It was in perfect condition when we arrived and even had a fresh batch of roses in the kitchen.

Lovely spot, right on Big Tub.

The cottage was lovely. It is well laid out and is right on Big Tub harbour. On three days of our week long stay we swam out and dove on the 2 wrecks in Big Tub. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and will be returning. Reviewed by a RentCottage renter Stayed: October 2011 Source: RentCottage

Just lovely, secluded and peaceful place to reflect. Loved the lighthouse.

Big Tub is a special place, we're glad we've been. Surroundings are truly beautiful and Tobermory is very energetic, good vibes. Bill and Carol are the perfect hosts, so helpful and friendly and sociable. Just lovely. Reviewed by shirley b Stayed: August 2016 Source: RentCottage
