Description

Escape to this delightful stone cottage and enjoy its magical secluded position in one of Scotland’s most historical landscapes.  Peacefully positioned in woodland above the Crinan Canal, Slate Cottage is ideally placed for enjoying this wonderful part of Argyll with its rugged glens, remote beaches, dramatic scenery and magical islands.

This delightful newly built, single-story cottage is well laid out and has been comfortably furnished and carefully equipped with everything needed for a relaxed self-catering holiday.  The wood burning stove in the spacious open plan living area creates a cosy atmosphere for relaxing after an exhilarating day out and about and the paved patio is glorious for sitting out and soaking up the beautiful unspoilt surroundings.

Located half a mile down a private track Slate Cottage sits adjacent to the owner’s holiday cottage.
A short walk down a steep path will take you to a small loch which was once the site of a 19th century slate quarry.  This hidden natural landscape provides a wonderful opportunity to spot some of the magical wildlife that thrives here including roe deer, red squirrels, pine marten and many varieties of birds.

Whether it’s a relaxing short break, an active holiday or a romantic weekend, Slate Cottage creates a glorious setting.

Also available and adjacent is Dunamuck Cottage, which sleeps up to 4 guests.

    Slate Cottage reviews
    Cottage was as expected from description; well equipped, comfortable and with clean and new furniture. Had the place to ourselves and could wander freely around. Loads of butterflies and wildflowers. Location was great for us, close to Kilmartin Glen and Crinan, an area we are very familiar with. Would recommend the cafe at Kilmartin Museum, all the archaeology to be found [if that's your thing] and the gardens at Arduaine and Craera. We also returned to the beaver project at Knapdale and were lucky enough to spot one! Co-op at Lochgilphead good for food shopping.
    Mr Stretch - July 2016
    A spacious, modern and well equipped cottage with lovely views. The location, half a mile up an unmade road, makes it feel remote but it is just a short drive to Lochgilphead. Lovely walks along the Crinan Canal and in the hills and forests around Crinan, with spectacular/r views out to Jura.
