    This cottage is simply wonderful. It is the dreamed house you would like to have in your daily life, equipped to the highest standards and very well designed. The large bay windows make you feel outside, in the stunning views on Loch Awe (although the perfect insulation allows you to never feel cold nor too warm). WiFi connection, phone connection and plenty of DVDs for those who like the cottage so much that they want to stay inside. But also plenty of other marvels on hand for those who like outdoor activities: an incredibly beautiful and huge landscaped private garden (with a suspension bridge and many benches to enjoy what is, in fact, more like a royal park than a mere garden), plenty of places to visit Historic Scotland (castles, chapels, dolmens, cairns), many fishing spots (licences can be bought locally, very close), plenty of other activities (sailing, treetop adventure, horse riding, etc) and walking paths galore for those who, like us, enjoy hillwalking. The owner was always here to help when we needed his advice on where to go, what to do ou where to find this or that. He was also very respectful of our privacy (we mainly exchanged by text messages) although we knew he could pop in in no time should we needed him to be there. In short: a perfect place to stay in Scotland!

The property

Kilmartin 10 miles.

This luxurious, modern house overlooks unspoilt Loch Awe and mountain Ben Cruachan.

It’s a unique opportunity to get away from it all, in the utmost comfort.

Sobrachan also has a private, ten-acre semi-landscaped woodland garden, with streams, waterfalls, decorative bridges, and even a suspension bridge across its gorge, offering magnificent views down to the loch and Ben Cruchan beyond.

Far from the traffic and bustle of daily life, there are glorious forest, river and hill walks from the doorstep, and the loch itself is under half a mile away.

In this fairytale location, Sobrachan is finished to the highest of standards, making it an ideal stay for families, groups and couples who want a thoroughly relaxing break in one of the area’s most well-appointed holiday homes.

There is a large, fully equipped utility room with washer and dryer, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and gas stove, supplementing a separate kitchen prep area with induction hob, two ovens and large fridge, overlooking the vast open-plan space that forms the main area of the house.

There are also three different dining areas — the informal breakfast bar, perfect for drinks and snacks, a comfortable, scrubbed pine kitchen table, and the formal dining area with its exquisite antique Hepplewhite table and chairs.

There is also a large open-plan lounge area, with a two huge corner sofas, a cosy wood-burning stove, large flatscreen TV and a wide array of DVDs, games and books to enjoy.

Guests can even have a sing-along (or musicians can gather safe in the knowledge they won’t be disturbing anyone) with a fabulous antique grand piano resting underneath the staircase.

This eco-friendly house is beautifully illuminated by natural light as the walls boast floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing astounding views of the loch, mountains, and garden in every season.

Sobrachan offers five zip/link bedrooms providing flexible sleeping for guests, while four of the bedrooms host immaculate en-suites and the fifth is right next to the bathroom.

The Master suite has its own dressing room, floor length windows overlooking the loch, and a bath.

All bathrooms have generously proportioned raindance showers.

Outside, there is decking with comfortable seating for a pre-dinner drink or lunch on the terrace.

From Sobrachan, some of Scotland’s most beautiful destinations are easily accessible.

Historic Rannoch Moor and Glencoe is an hour away, the Tayvallich peninsula with sweeping views of Jura, and Kilmory beach, perfect for bracing walks and sealife-spotting boat tours are all ideal days out, while the charming harbour town of Oban, with regular ferries to the Western isles, is a 36 mile drive.

The nearest pub can be found in Kilmartin, along with an ancient church, museum and coffee shop.

On way are historic Carnassarie castle, standing stones and bronze age cup and ring marks.

Slightly further afield is the small but appealing town of Lochgilphead, with a variety of places to shop and eat.

The Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is also nearby, providing even more incredible scenery and opportunities for walking, cycling and wildlife spotting.

Sobrachan is a spectacular house in a peaceful, historic and stunningly beautiful area of Scotland.

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 and a shop selling local crafts. 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.
