Words can never express the wonderful time we have had over the past five weeks. Very mixed weather, but we managed to swim twice at Sanna. As always, we enjoyed the wildlife viewings.- white, tailed, eagle most days, Pine Martin caught on night camera, dolphins in The Bay along with the local otter in The Bay on the left side below the house. Also a family of otters at Kilchoan ferry port. The latest local attraction is the honesty box on the left hand side on the way to Kilchoan. Full of wonderful traybakes made by Lyndsey, her pancakes are scrummy - would recommend to everyone. Swordle Makes is a great addition. Thanks again Mary for allowing us to stay in this haven by the sea and rebooked for our visit next year- our 18th year. Fiona and Brian ,
August / September. 2023.
Fantastic time here again, thank you, Mary for sharing your home. Perfect weather, lots of sunshine and of course a bit of rain! Lots to see as always, two otters in the Bay most mornings, pods of dolphins nearly every night, some coming close into the Bay. Highlight was watching dolphins and minke whales, having a feeding frenzy with gulls and many shearwaters and then a minke whale breaching 7/8 times!! The two resident white tailed eagles flying past every day , sometimes over the cottage. Lots of walking and kayaking and then the perfect end, standing on The Cube at 3.30a.m. to see The Northern Lights!! Can't wait to do it all again next year, Thankyou so much for the perfect holiday. Jane and Andy,
July/ August 2023.

Another wonderful holiday, I have been coming here for 26 years and it gets better each time I come if that's possible. Thankyou Mary for making this possible. I look forward to making it possible- next year. Marion,
A wonderful week !! At times warm enough to sit and enjoy Mary's lovely garden, hike and enjoy the wildlife. Other days wet enough to settle down with a good book. See you in September. Thankyou Mary. David and Myra,
Once again, a fantastic stay at Air an Oir and this was enhanced by glorious weather for the whole week! Spotted the dolphins, swimming westwards across the bay one morning, the pair of buzzards were scooting about in front of the house as per usual, and also a stag in the field below the house most evenings,. ( The weather also seemed to have pulled in some unwelcome marine life too- loads of jellyfish were in the bay earlier in the week!) Air an Oir is just a peaceful haven to have the most relaxing holiday. Thanks again. Johnny and Marietta,
Another glorious week spent here at Air an Oir. So peaceful and relaxing. Lots of walks to little beaches and a great hike from Ockle to The Singing Sands and on to Kentra Bay. Ferry Trip and lunch in Tobermory. Thankyou Mary. Hope to see you next year. Alan, Pat and Sally,

Another wonderful holiday in Air an Oir - immaculately clean, well equipped and cosy with super views, so peaceful and relaxing. Plenty of wildlife to see and lovely walks. The highlight was climbing Ben Hiant on a beautiful sunny day to see such fantastic scenery. We will definitely be back!

“Mary thanks you so much for allowing us to stay in your home for 5 weeks. As always perfection personified - Started with sunshine on the Cube and ended in a storm . Wonderful walks and plenty of time for relaxation and reflection. IThe best wildlife experience was a Sea Eagle flying past the lounge window at eye level. The star filled skies were eye wateringly beautiful . People ask us why we have been coming for 16 years and we say you have to stay here to know why. See you next year xx”
