The house is situated close to Loch Awe with stunning views of the Loch from the main sitting room, kitchen and dining room. There are opportunities for fishing and hiring small boats in the area, and easy short walks from the farmhouse. A little further afield there are many hills to climb including munros, or walking alongside the picturesque Crinan canal.
The nearby Kilmartin Glen is the best site in Scotland for historic monuments, including chambered cairns, standing stone and stone circles, and rock art. The Kilmartin museum is excellent, the cafe very popular, and there are weekly walks around the glen, led by well informed volunteers.
The owners of the property live nearby and are extremely helpful and welcoming.
We had a very relaxing week in this spacious and well appointed farmhouse. If you want peace and quiet with stunning views then this could be the holiday cottage for you. Stock up before you arrive, or better still get Tesco to deliver, but if you do fancy eating out then there are plenty of hotels and restaurants not too far away. Oban is excellent for fresh seafood. The owners are friendly and helpful. We saw lots of deer and a pine marten. We would love to visit again.
Easy access to places of local interest by road Good walks and fishing without using the car. The kayaks were fun on a hot day.
Eight good friends enjoyed a wonderful week in this lovely old farmhouse overlooking Loch Awe. Meticulously upgraded and extended a few years ago it is everything a holiday home should be. Comfortable, spacious and very well equipped.Good to be in if the weather doesn't encourage outdoor activities and good to return to after a day out. Thank you Wilma and Angus for being such good hosts.
Lovely setting overlooking Loch Awe. The house is very well presented and equipped for a large family. It deals with the practical in terms of drying rooms, washing facilities and outdoor cover for boots,waders ,fishing gear etc. Once inside the house , it is beautifully furnished and very comfortable together with a great games room. Even a kennel outside for the dogs. Having complete access to the Estate together with it's hill lochs for fishing is a major plus, we had a very relax time just walking the hills behind the house or dropping a fly in one of the 21 lochs.
