  • “Our stay at the house was fantastic, comfy beds, comfy living-room and everything spotless and clean.”

    We were travelling down from a Tier 1 (The Isle of lewis) so we were nervous about coming to the mainland but decided we would travel down to see a family member that was terminally ill, after we already lost two family members earlier in the year to cancer. We are so happy we found this place, it really was a home from home, very secluded, comfortable and very clean, we really can't fault our stay and will definetly be back once everything is back to normal. We can't thank the hosts enough for ...

The property

Enjoying a rural position on the outskirts of the charming village of Dalmally is this detached property, Strone Farm.

Situated on a working farm, this spacious accommodation is the perfect spot for families seeking a countryside getaway with awe-inspiring views.

Entering Strone Farm, you will be welcomed into the spacious kitchen, which boasts sleek units and contains all the essentials you require for a self-catered stay, including a washing machine so that you can wash and dry your clothes after an action-packed day exploring this part of Scotland.

Meals can be enjoyed within the dining room, perfect for gathering with your loved ones to toast to a wonderful holiday or while away a couple of hours by playing a board game brought from home.

Settle down for the evening within the sitting room, where a woodburning stove takes centre stage before the plush furnishings.

Look forward to lighting up the fire during a winter’s evening and snuggling up on the sofa before tuning into the TV to relax before heading to bed.

Concluding the ground floor is the family bathroom, complete with a shower over bath, offering you a choice of how best to prepare for your day.

Upstairs are the two bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both enjoying a bright and airy décor and picturesque views to wake up to each morning.

To the outside, the large decking area provides space for younger guests to play out in the sunshine, whilst the adults pop open a bottle of fizz and soak up the surroundings, by making the most of the contemporary alfresco dining table.

From here, be sure to catch a glimpse of the endearing wildlife that often passes by, including red deer, red squirrels, red kites and buzzards.

Explore your surroundings further by taking a short drive into the village of Dalmally, where you will find a shop, a Post Office, a pub and a takeaway restaurant.

For a taste of the local history, visit the ruins of Fraoch Eilean Castle, which rests on the Loch Awe or The Lochan, the Legend of the Lost Sword, which offers a gentle walk around the loch.

For those seeking a more challenging walk, hike up Ben Cruachan, which is the highest point in Argyll and Bute, home to the Cruachan power station, where visitors can tour the hollowed-out mountain.

Other things to do whilst here include the Dalmally Golf Club, St. Conan’s Kirk and the most photographed castle in Scotland, Kilchurn Castle is nearby.

Make Strone Farm your base for exploring this wonderful part of Scotland.

About the location

DALMALLY

Tyndrum 11 miles; Oban 27 miles.

The village of Dalmally, on the road between Tyndrum and Oban in Argyll and Bute, probably began life as a settlement to provide for the nearby Kilchurn Castle, established in the mid 15th century by the 1st Lord of Glenorchy, Sir Colin Campbell. Through many generations, the Campbells vied with the earls of Argyll for dominance in this region and the castle was only abandoned in the 18th century. The modern village of Dalmally has a shop, Post Office and a hotel as well as Glenorchy parish church, with its octagonal design. There's also a nine hole parkland golf course, set just behind the village and Loch Awe, offering a very scenic and peaceful place to practice your swing. The renowned Gaelic poet Duncan Ben MacIntyre was born in the area, and a walk up forested hills brings you to his monument, as well as spectacular views of Loch Awe and the surrounding mountains. Its location makes the village an ideal base for touring the spectacular scenery nearby. Visit Loch Awe and its ruined castle, and nearby Ben Cruachan is not only a fabulous walk but also houses the Cruachan power station, where visitors can tour the hollowed-out mountain. Oban is a short drive away with ferries to the Western Isles, or take a drive through awe-inspiring Glen Coe. Dalmally is surrounded by sublime scenery, making it a wonderful base for your next Scottish getaway.
