Property code: CA113

This picturesque holiday home offers outstanding views of the surrounding woodlands. Up to four guests can experience total peace at this tranquil property with plenty of outdoor activities nearby.

With two twin bedrooms, this is a wonderful escape for friends and family of all ages. The split-level cottage has a charming and homely feel, with exposed beams, wooden details and soft furnishings. You’ll find it located at the end of a private track overlooking a small loch, with a decked balcony boasting views across to the village of Cairnbaan.

From the large entrance porch, go down three steps into the spacious, double height open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where French doors onto the balcony help flood the room with light. At night, it turns into a cosy haven when the wood burner is lit – the perfect place to relax after a day of exploration. Catch up on the day’s adventures over a delicious dinner cooked in the fully-equipped kitchen, before heading up the three further steps to the twin bedrooms, where a peaceful night’s sleep awaits.

Enjoy evening drinks or al fresco dining on the large balcony, taking in the incredible views over this wonderful part of Scotland. From here, you’ll see almost nothing but green hills and trees, lochs, and nature for miles – the ideal spot to get away from everyday life. A nearby path leads through the woods to the nearby hotel for tasty local scran, while a steep path leads from the cottage down to the loch which was once the site of a 19th-century slate quarry.

Wildlife abounds in this lesser-known natural landscape, with every chance of spotting roe deer, red squirrels, pine marten, and many varieties of birds during your stay. From the loch, climb the heather-clad hill opposite for impressive views along the Crinan Canal and towards the sea. Wander the towpath of the canal - described as Britain's most beautiful shortcut - which is excellent for keen walkers and cyclists. Head 6.5 miles to the sheltered sandy bay of Crinan Ferry Beach, located at the mouth of the River Add. From here, enjoy lovely views across to the 12th-century Duntrune Castle (also 6.5 miles), which is surrounded by the breathtaking landscape of the ancient kingdom of Dalriada. Discover more history at the Neolithic and Bronze Age remains in Kilmartin Glen (6 miles), with a multitude of cairns, standing stones, stone circles, forts and castles to see and explore. For those wanting to get closer to nature, charter a boat from the nearby Crinan Harbour (5.5 miles) for a day of fishing, wildlife watching and island hopping, or venture further to the famous Gulf of Corryvreckan with its whirlpools and standing waves; here you have every chance of spotting eagles, dolphins or whales. For shops, restaurants and even a nine-hole golf course, head to nearby Lochgilphead town, just 3 miles from the cottage.

Disappointing to arrive in a pandemic to a cottage that is grubby and poorly maintained.

The cottage is in some need of TLC. The photos were taken when the place was new. Certain things dont work or are missing altogether. I dont want to run the place down to much but it was not as expected and was very disappointed. It is in a lovely spot but very isolated so be prepared.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
