“Outstanding Property & Value” Friday 10th Oct 2014

Set above the banks of beautiful Loch Awe with clear views to Ben Cruachan, this outstanding conversion of a traditional Scottish byre is the perfect setting for a special holiday in Argyll.  Once the cow barn for the neighbouring farmhouse this building has been transformed into an inspiring, modern self catering holiday house.

One of the highlights of this stunning home is the stylish open plan living area.  This gloriously bright room with its large windows, clean lines and striking red kitchen gives a wonderful contemporary feel, yet the wood burning stove and sumptuous leather sofas allow it to be relaxing and cosy.  All three bedrooms are equally fresh and elegant with two of them having linking beds allowing a choice between twin or super-king sleeping.  The downstairs bedroom has the luxury of a large ensuite wet room which is ideal for less-able guests.  Attention to detail is evident throughout Collaig Byre with everything you could need for a truly relaxing self-catering holiday – a fully-equipped kitchen, crisp cotton bed linen, generous fluffy towels and many other touches.

Dreamy Scottish views of glens, mountains and loch can be enjoyed from Collaig’s five acres in this secluded and tranquil location - this is a beautiful part of Argyll and one of the most picturesque areas of Scotland, famous for its spectacular castles, coast and wildlife.

There are endless fantastic walking opportunities and ideal picnic spots surrounding Collaig Byre as well as excellent mountain biking and road cycling on both forest and quiet single track roads.  This is heaven for the enthusiastic birdwatcher with a huge variety of birds including hawks, buzzards, eagles and ospreys which are known to nest here.   This lovely area is also home to amazing wildlife such as red squirrels, otters, pine marten and badgers.

Loch Awe is renowned for its excellent wild trout and pike fishing (permits available) and Ben Cruachan (3695ft) the local Munro, attracts the keen climber or you can even venture inside this great mountain and experience the astounding engineering work created by the hydro-power station.

Locally, there are many excellent day trips for all the family to enjoy including Inverawe Smokeries & Country Park near Taynuilt, Oban distillery, the historic Kilmartin Glen & Museum, The Scottish Sealife Sanctuary, many beautiful gardens, several golf courses, glorious beaches and historic castles.  Oban, known as “ Gateway to the Isles” has regular ferries to Mull and the island.
