    “This was a lovely cottage with a relaxed feel to it.”

    It was quiet and peaceful area with lots of walks around the area. I would definitely be back.

The property

Following extensive renovation over a number of years, Shepherds Cottage has been substantially renovated and transformed from a traditional Shepherds cottage into a modern home.

Set on a quiet road in the village of Inverliever just outside Ford, this property would be ideal for walking or cycling holidays.

Entering the property through the back door, you come straight into the contemporary kitchen, which contains an electric oven and hob, so after a trip to the supermarket to stock up you can get busy with preparing the evening meal.

Beyond here you will find the dining and sitting area; an open-plan living space divided seamlessly by the free standing staircase to the middle of the room, with the sofas positioned around the woodburning stove so you can achieve maximum comfort in front of the fire and a favourite film.

The rest of the ground floor is made up of two twin bedrooms, each having a wardrobe for storage, and there is also the main family bathroom which has a Jacuzzi bath feature for you to indulge in.

Head up the stairs and straight into the double room with sloping ceilings and Velux windows to let the natural light pour in, and enjoy the ease of having an en-suite bathroom next door with your own shower.

To the outside of the property there is a patio area with outdoor furniture, and a large back garden, as well as the private use of the walled garden to the front of the neighbouring shepherds hut, as they are owned by the same owner.

There is a outside drying area and fully enclosed, lockable storage area for bikes, canoes, fishing gear in the bothy next door.

The small village of Ford is surrounded by beautiful landscapes and open spaces just ready to be explored, presenting a great opportunity for those keen cyclists to get out on the bikes and test themselves on those Scottish hills.

The nearest town with pubs and shops is Kilmartin, which is best known as the centre of Kilmartin Glen; an area with one of the richest concentrations of prehistoric monuments and historical sites in Scotland, so not only can you pick up your essentials from the shops, you can pick up a bit of history too!

A little further south to Cairnbaan will bring you to the Scottish Beaver Trail in Knapdale Forest for a fantastic family day out where you can try and spot the beavers that are now thriving in that area after being reintroduced in 2009.

Shepherds Cottage is the peaceful escape you’ve been waiting for, a perfect base from which to explore the Argyll region of Scotland.

About the location


Kilmartin Glen 5 miles; Crinan 7 miles; Kilmartin 8.5 miles; Inverary 24 miles; Oban 37 miles.

Located at the top end of Loch Gilp, which opens from the much larger Loch Fyne, the town of Lochgilphead was originally designed as a planned town. Founded towards the end of the 18th century and following on from the opening of the road from Inverary to Campbeltown, Lochgilphead grew and developed after the nearby Cinan Canal was opened, thus improving connectivity across the peninsula. Today Lochgilphead is a popular tourist spot with a variety of shops cafes and bars. The surrounding scenery on all sides is beautiful and there are many scenic drives to be had to Inverary with its jail and castle and Crinan with the famous canal. Kilmartin Glen is one of Scotland’s richest landscapes with over 800 historic monuments, cairns, standing stones and circles, and rock art dating back over 5000 years! Visit the Kilmartin museum, an internationally acclaimed archaeology museum and uncover the areas mesmerising history. Lochgilphead and the surrounding area also play host to many festivals throughout the year and whether your preference is for music, food or Highland games, there will be something for everyone here.
