A most attractive house, it stands in a large sloping grass garden which is studded with shrubs, surrounded by trees and with ample off-road parking. Inside, it provides very spacious, well-appointed and comfortable accommodation for six people.

On the ground floor guests have a choice between one sitting room with wood-burning stove and a further 'snug', both with TVs and DVD players (making it ideal for different generations who may not want to do or watch the same thing at the same time).

There is also a separate dining room and well-equipped breakfasting kitchen, as well as a handy downstairs WC.

Upstairs are three good-size bedrooms, two doubles and a twin, and a family bathroom.  Please note that the staircase is rather steep so care should be taken, particularly with children.

Furniture and fittings throughout are of excellent quality and many charming original features have been retained, such as the Victorian fireplaces in the dining room and one of the bedrooms. There is also a very useful entrance porch, that is ideal for muddy boots and the safe storage of sporting equipment and bikes.

Map & Local

The Canal, sometimes described as Scotland's most beautiful shortcut, runs from Ardrishaig to Crinan itself and is much used by sailors seeking an early escape to the Atlantic.

The towpath provides excellent walking and cycling, with hostelries along the way for refreshment and the added interest of watching the boats pass through the locks as you go.

Ardrishaig has shops and Lochgilphead, just a mile or so further up the road, has all facilities including a swimming pool and golf course. There is further excellent walking available in the surrounding hills, while sea-fishing can be arranged locally.

From there it is an easy drive to some lovely beaches near Crinan, the historical centre of Kilmartin Glen with its 3,000 year old standing stones, cairns and barrows and onward to Oban. In the other direction you can head right down the Mull of Kintyre, which offers superb scenery, the chance to head over to Arran for the day from Clonaig, the famous Loch Fyne seafood at Tarbert and a great surfing beach at Machrihanish.
