Making a booking

We hope that our website has tempted you enough to make a booking for an unforgettable holiday.  Please check the availability pages for each house to see which you would prefer.

In order to make a booking we ask you to phone or email us with your contact details and your preferred house and dates - we can then make an immediate provisional reservation for you.  You then need to send a cheque for £100 payable to "The Gully Partnership" to :

Dunmor, Easdale, Oban, Argyll.  PA34 4RF

within seven days of making your provisional booking.  We will then send you written confirmation, and any relevant further information, which secures your booking. Please note that the deposit is NOT refundable in any circumstances (and indicated an acceptance of our terms and conditions). 

There is nothing further to pay until the final day of your holiday, when we will invoice you for the outstanding balance of the let, along with your extra charges for gas, boat fuel and any breakages.

Please note that we only accept payments by cheque or cash - we cannot currently take any card payments at all.

Paddling stealthily  

through silk seas 

we hold our breath 

as the otter surfaces. 


His log body floats across the waves 

head raised 

then with a flick  

he is gone 

long tail sliding into darker depths. 


Up again 

like a champagne cork 

bobbing and chomping 

on a luckless fish. 

We hear bones crunching. 


There’s snow in the air 

and the ridges are dusted 

like Christmas Stollen. 


A cloud the size of Scotland 

presses down on the heron’s languid flight 

and a rubber-headed seal 

pounces on a bouy 

a toy to play with in its loch-sized bath. 


Then hail hits the waves 

A pounding of diamonds 

Beautiful and sharp. 


Mica Schist captures the brilliance 

In its ripples 

Nature’s mirror ball 

Reflecting the rainbow’s fraying end. 


We float home 

with eiders whistling in our ears 

the urgent flock of redwings 

in the twinkling of our eyes 


our heads ablaze  

with birds and beasts and light.
