  • "I recommend resting in this house."

    Clean, quiet and peaceful, you can rest only among the singing birds. Owners very helpful. Highly recommend!

  • "This property comes very much top of the long list of holiday cottages I have rented over the last decade, many being booked through Sykes."

    It suited me very much, being in a quiet location, having a carefully- refurbished interior with up-to-date appliances, lovely comfortable settees in the sitting-room, good storage space, generously-timed heating and hot water and wonderful front garden with a lovely view. The owner had also left a number of provisions which were much-appreciated. Excellent!

  • "This is a lovely cottage, attractive, clean, comfortable and well equipped."

    The view from the front windows was a wonderful surprise. It would be beautiful at any time of the year but was stunning in May with the azaleas in full bloom. The owners, while not intrusive, were both friendly and helpful. It is set in a quiet village but within reach of great walks, beautiful coastline, fascinating archeological sites and wonderful gardens.

  • "Just back from a fabulous week."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Brilliant shower very powerful. Very warm and cozy. Spent time looking out the window watching the view and all the birds. Excellent folder with instructions for all appliances. Good location for heading to Oban and down to tarbert for the isles. I would happily return. Owners were lovely too.

  • "Beautifully refurbished bungalow."

    Super comfy lounge with view of the hills, great bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen, good WiFi, although no/ weak mobile signal for us on Three. Plenty of parking space out back, and lovely front garden with visiting birds and once a red squirrel, adjacent to a really quiet lane with privacy from neighbours, near the edge of the tiny village. Though note, to get a loch view needs a short drive/cycle or at least a short hike up the hill. Great days out in the fantastic scenery of Argyll, wee towns & villages, and Killmory beach (gorgeous white sand, quiet even in high summer!). Except we found summer ferries for an intended day trip to Mull should’ve been booked well in advance. Ace cycling: Stunning Kilmelford-Dalavich loop (allow time for the hills!), worth the extra miles to the end of the peninsular at Keillmore (and back via the canal & Kilmichael), and OK but mostly in the trees on the SE side of Loch Awe. And well worth the scramble up Dun Dubh for the 360 views.

The property

Ardfern 9.7 miles.

Overlooking idyllic views of tranquil countryside and mountains, sitting in the remote village of Ford, is this dreamy detached bungalow.

Innishail offers a peaceful base for a group of four to enjoy an adventurous rural retreat to Scotland.

Be charmed by the peace and quiet of the surrounding areas as you make your way through a luscious lawn towards the property, welcoming you in with glimpses of striking hills.

Spend your evenings in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where you'll find fantastic amenities to aid your home-cooking, as well as a sociable dining table for intimate meals together over a bottle of wine.

Once your plates have been put in the dishwasher, snuggle up for a cosy night in the spacious sitting room, escaping reality during a family film night, or admiring the impressive bay window where you can curl up with a good book as you feel calmed by amazing views.

Prepare for bed in the gorgeous bathroom, choosing between a sumptuous bubble bath soak, or a relaxing rinse in the walk-in shower, complemented by a toasty heated towel rail.

Retire to one of the inviting double bedrooms after a long day of exploration, both are well-presented with ample storage for all your belongings.

Head out on a romantic stroll away from the group as you explore the local village of Ford, breathing in the fresh country air as you walk hand in hand by the quiet river, or enjoy picnics on one of the nearby green areas.

A range of local amenities can be found in the nearby coastal village of Ardfern, boasting a village shop where you can stock up on essentials, a welcoming pub for indulging in a smooth pint and pub grub, as well as a quaint tea room, craft centre, and a gorgeous marina to discover.

Closer to home is the Kilmartin Hotel just 4.6 miles away, a 19th century pub where you can catch up with the locals over Scottish ales before visiting the Kilmartin House Museum of Ancient Culture, and the Temple Wood Stone Circle.

Other attractions nearby include Carnasserie Castle, the sailing port at Craobh Haven, a whisky trail, and opportunities for watersports, sailing and fishing on the sparkling waters of Loch Awe.

Alternatively, venture over to the exciting towns of Lochgilphead and Oban, home to a wealth of contemporary amenities, high street shops, trendy bars, romantic restaurants, and a cinema.

Escape the hustle and bustle of daily life at Innishail.

About the location

ARDFERN

Lochgilphead 16 miles; Oban 21 miles.

The picturesque coastal village of Ardfern sits on the Craignish Peninsula in Scotland’s beautiful and dramatic Argyll region. An ancient settlement, there is evidence of population at Ardfern dating from 600 AD when contemporaries of St Columba were here, plus there is a ruined church on the Peninsula dating from 12th century. The village today contains a pub, shop, craft centre, tea room and a large marina, ideally placed for sailing off the west coast. A second marina is nearby at Craobh Haven and the towns of Lochgilphead and Oban are well worth a visit offering many shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The surrounding scenery is what makes the area, with the hills, lochs and mountains offering spectacular walking, plus there is fresh water and sea fishing nearby to delight the angler. Ardfern is a lovely base for exploring the area.
