The property

Kilmartin 8 miles.

Settled in the rural village of Ford in the Scottish Highlands, is this romantic, one-bedroom cottage, The School Room.

Surrounded by countryside and enjoying a rustic interior with a woodburning stove, this converted school room is ideal for a couple's getaway.

On arrival, be greeted by off-road parking with stepping inside to the porch; here you can hang your coats ready for a countryside ramble.

Moving through the property, find the fitted kitchen hosting an electric oven and hob to prepare heart-warming meals and a dishwasher for an easy clean!

Adjacent, you will locate the living/dining room, where you can kick back and relax on the sofa as the woodburning stove crackles before you and the TV plays your favourite shows.

In the summer months, soak in the tranquil setting from the lawned garden with a cold beverage; afterwards indulge in a soak in the ground-floor bathroom.

When sleep calls, retire upstairs to the mezzanine bedroom, housing a four-poster bed to rest your head, so why not climb in and open up a good book?

Awaken with a steaming cup of coffee and make use of the kitchen appliances to rustle up home-cooked meals.

Just a short stroll away is Loch Awe; here you can find a quiet fishing spot to unwind, hire boats and kayaks, as well as keep a look out for a 15the century castle.

Jump in the car to visit the ruins of Carnasserie Castle, see great birds at Kintail Birds of Prey Argyll and soak in the past at Kilmartin's standing stones.

Admire the coastal vistas from Bellanoch Viewpoint, explore Knapdale Scottish Beaver Trail to spot beavers and stroll along Dunardy Locks Crinan Canal for a peaceful setting.

For a romantic escape to the Scottish Highlands, choose The School Room.

About the location


Crinan 7 miles; Lochgilphead 8 miles; Tarbert 21 miles; Oban 30 miles.

The village of Kilmartin sits at the heart of Kilmartin Glen, one of the most important prehistoric sites on the Scottish mainland. In the area there are rock carvings, standing stones, burial cairns and the remains of the Iron-Age fort at Dunadd, the home of the first kings of Scotland. Kilmartin is home to a church, pub, a castle and the Kilmartin House Museum with visitor centre next door, housing a café. The town of Lochgilphead is eight miles away, offering a good selection of cafes and small shops selling a range of goods, foods and crafts, while the village of Inveraray, home to the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, is within driving distance. Close by is Crinan Canal, which is surrounded by the stunning scenery of Argyll and Bute. From end to end the canal is nine miles long, and its sheltered waters make it an ideal place for beginners and the more experienced paddlers to explore. There are beautiful walks to be enjoyed throughout the area from Kilmichael Forest, to those at Port Ann and Dunardry and up over the hill from the stoney beach at Crinan Ferry, from where you can look out over Jura and north towards Mull. A trip to the Scottish Beaver Trail in Knapdale Forest also provides a fun family day out, plus the fishing village of Tarbert gives you superb access to all the ferry points across Kintyre that travel to Gigha, Arran, Islay and Portavadie.
