    it is in a beautiful situation

    Port na Mine is a wonderful house in a beautiful location. We stayed for a week in early August 2023 and found that it had everything we could possibly want for a party of ten from two families. The house is very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped (including Nespresso machine), the beds, heating and hot water all excellent. Lots of bathrooms. The forest track up to the house was less difficult than we had been led to expect. The midges were only a very low level nuisance and the weather much better than forecast. The walk down to the loch takes 5 minutes and is delightful, down a mown path flanked by a sea of wild flowers. We kayaked, paddleboarded and swam in the loch, and our dog was rarely out of the water. Absolutely idyllic, and so quiet. So many wonderful things to see in the vicinity, like Glen Coe, Glen Etive, Castle Stalker and Dunstaffnage Castle. An amazing place!

    Het huis is prachtig gelegen met subliem uitzicht op het Loch Etive. Het huis is uitstekend voor een familie bijeenkomst, wij waren met elf mensen en hadden ruimte te over. Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien met zelfs bij elke slaapkamer een eigen badkamer. De uitrusting was echt volledig met ook een barbeque waar zelfs aanmaakhout bij was. We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad met schots weer, af en toe forse regen maar vaak stralend weer. In het meer kregen we zelfs af en toe bezoek van een zeehondje.
