    “Beautiful cottage in remote location”

    This cottage is lovely: nice and spacious for our family of four, spotlessly clean, good quality fixtures and fittings with lots of equipment for home cooking if required. The photos do not do it justice! The real fire was also a bonus on cool evenings, especially with the kids! We saw an abundance of wild birds and red squirrels on the decking. The woods and burn at the back of the house provided endless entertainment for the kids. The owners live on site and were extremely friendly and helpful ...

    This cottage is lovely: nice and spacious for our family of four, spotlessly clean, good quality fixtures and fittings with lots of equipment for home cooking if required. The photos do not do it justice! The real fire was also a bonus on cool evenings, especially with the kids! We saw an abundance of wild birds and red squirrels on the decking. The woods and burn at the back of the house provided endless entertainment for the kids. The owners live on site and were extremely friendly and helpful when required. It's worth noting that it is a bit of a treck to get anywhere (single track road for 20-30 minutes in either direction to a main road) but that makes it all the more appealing as it is lovely and quiet. Despite the rain, we explored lots of the west coast. The Crinan trail was a pleasant surprise, giving the most amazing views over the Sound of Jura. And Oban and Inveraray are worth a visit. I'd definitely recommend this cottage to families or couples who enjoy the outdoors.

About the location

KILMARTIN

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.
