July 2, 2016 by in

I have had a fabulous week staying at Crosskeys Cottage.  Such a charming cottage with fab features and lovely décor!  I have well and truly fallen in love with the cottage and the area, just wish I didn’t have to go home tomorrow…

Thanks Craig for lending me your wok to cook my clams from Loch Fyne, they were delish.  Places to go – I really recommend ‘Pucks Glen’ near Dunoon.  Loch Fyne restaurant.  Fruin Farm Restaurant (over the road from here) also does a lovely breakfast.  Inverary is lovely too as is the most amazing views on the drive up there.

Thanks again and hope to be back soon!
