June -  July 2014

Absolutely loved everything about Portlea Summerhouse - so full of light and beautiful windows with gorgeous views. I very much enjoyed boat, bird and deer watching from the desk where I worked for two months. The bed is super comfy and the kitchen so well equipped. It is really sad to leave and I have packed lots of fond memories of Oban and the islands with me. SG Thailand
