Springtime in our Glen - Kilbride Kirk

Kilbride Kirkyard is just a short stroll down the drovers track from our pub and it is a delightful destination at any time of year. Just now with the Spring flowers and some welcome March sunshine it's wonderful. Our Friends at Kilbride have just launched a new website to share the history of this little know gem. Have a look and let us know what you think next time you visit.

Digital Detox!

For Cologin's busy booking office our rural broadband connection speed can be frustratingly slow but we've noticed a few comments recently in our customer reviews enjoying the 'digital detox' and slower pace of life in our tranquil retreat in the glen!

For many these days, having a holiday does not always mean leaving the office behind - whether you want to or not. So, after the initial shock of finding your mobile signal is inconsistent or non existent depending on your provider, many visitors relax and enjoy the fact that their office really will have to stick to your request to not contact unless there's an emergency! There's email of course - but you can choose to log in and look at your messages.

The phone is far more intrusive and it's pleasant and peaceful without the constant beep, ping or whiz of texts. As soon as you drive the 2 miles into Oban town centre you will pick up your messages so you are not completely cut off. And we actually do have a working public phone box at Cologin - your children will not have a clue how to operate such an antique but it's a useful history lesson for them.

Festive Menus at the Barn Bar

Are you staying at Cologin this Christmas or New Year?

The Barn is taking bookings now so give them a call on 01631 564618 or drop us an email

A great night out in Glasgow at the Hilton Hotel, but sadly we went home without a trophy! We've enjoyed two years on the trot of winning awards for the Barn Bar so I guess it can't go on for ever.

Fingers crossed our loyal locals and Cologin guests will nominate us for something next year - there's definitely room on the mantelpiece for another award. It's a lovely feeling being a finalists but it's much better being a winner!

This nomination was a first for us. And next year we hope to have our mug shots on the front page of the Dram!

May Day Special Offer

This very odd Spring weather has obviously gone to my head! From snow to sunshine in less than 24 hours but today's blue skies hint at something warmer for the next few weeks. Let's hope so - I've packed away my winter woolies.

Snow at the end of April - what ever next!
So to celebrate we're offering a £100 MAY DAY saving on any week's stay in any property at Cologin booked in the next month.

Use voucher code ZE9W0 online or quote the voucher code if you are booking by phone. The voucher will expire at the end of May so get booking today and save £100.

Benjie the Borrow Dog!

Should Benjie have his own Facebook page??? He is certainly an important part of Cologin and so many of our customers have had the pleasure (?) of his company as they walk their own dogs around the hills above the site. For those without pets of their own, Benjie is quick to offer his services as a borrow dog - he does not wait to be asked and will simply follow with a wag of his tail and a big grin. And it's not just our customers - Benjie is equally well known to guests staying at Lagnakeil and to Oban locals.

Of course we love him, we just hope you do too!

Benjie loves company - canine or human!
