    “Rural, rustic and perfect!!”

    If it's rural and rustic that you want then look further than this charming little cottage. Perfectly equipped and extremely functional for an idyllic stay in this part of the world.

The owners Jennifer and Iain were more than accommading, leaving us some well received supplies and even a wrapped gift under the Christmas tree.

    If it's rural and rustic that you want then look further than this charming little cottage. Perfectly equipped and extremely functional for an idyllic stay in this part of the world. Hubby and I spent the most chilled of Christmas week's in this perfect little haven. The owners Jennifer and Iain were more than accommading, leaving us some well received supplies and even a wrapped gift under the Christmas tree. The open fire and range in the living kitchen area was just sublime...perfect for drying out walking boots, gaiters and the like, and even the perfect spot for warming your bottle of red!! The Scottish weather was kind to us for the week, which afforded us some great walking days and some pretty stupendous views to boot! We were welcomed warmly on numerous occasions by the lovely staff of the local pub in Kilmartin, which offered a great selection of beers and hearty food to round off a perfect day. The area is steeped in ancient ruins too, for those who enjoy some real history! A return visit is most definitely on our list...thank you enormously Jennifer & Iain.

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 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.
