Creagen Cottage

Crinan Canal, near Lochgilphead, Argyll

Feefo RatingsGuest Rating

3 miles north west of Lochgilphead (shops, hotels, swimming-pool and golf course) is Creagen Cottage that stands detached, on a farm, in its own sizeable grass garden.

The cottage sits at the side of the towpath which runs alongside the Crinan Canal from Cairnbaan (1 mile) to the well-known West Coast yacht-haven and beauty-spot of Crinan Harbour (4 miles). It is easily reached, being just a few yards before Lock 11 on the far side of the canal from the B841.

Tenants have a great view of the fishing boats and seagoing yachts as they pass through in the daytime from Loch Fyne, or moor overnight before exiting into the Atlantic the following day. The 200 year old Canal is often referred to as the 'most beautiful short-cut in Britain' and the immediate scenery is indeed spectacular.

Always a most comfortable house, Creagen now has a superb extension comprising a split-level dining room/additional sitting room. There are French doors to the garden and plentiful windows that make the most of the views, whatever the weather. When darkness falls, you can always retreat to the original cosy sitting room with its open fire. The former dining room now makes an excellent play room.

The National Nature Reserve of Moine Mhor with its wealth of birdlife, rare plants, dragonflies and butterflies is immediately west of the cottage.

In fact, sharp-eyed visitors have noted that ospreys are nesting each year in the woods beside the cottage.

To the south is all of the lovely Mull of Kintyre and the possibility of boat-trips to the islands of Gigha, Jura and Islay from West Loch Tarbert. From Crinan itself you can arrange for a boat to take you skate fishing, or for offshore sailing trips.

Northwards, there are fine views of the Western Isles as you drive to Oban (about 30 miles) where there are scores of boat trips (Mull, Iona, Staffa, etc) and land excursions to be enjoyed.

En route, Kilmartin Glen with its prehistoric stone-circles, ring-marked rocks, carvings and remnants of The Kingdom of Dalriada, birthplace of the 'Scots', should also certainly be visited. Both Cairnbaan and Crinan have excellent hotel restaurants.

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
