Overview

It is part of the Carse Estate located in Knapdale, an area of outstanding natural beauty just above the Kintyre peninsula on the west coast of Scotland, some 10 miles from Tarbert.

Facing south west, it looks out across the lawns and fields to the sandy bay at the head of Loch Stornoway which is just a 15 minute walk away and beyond that to the Isles of Islay and Jura.

Inside, there is an unusually-shaped sitting room that has an open fire to keep it cosy. There is also a magnificent conservatory that has both dining and seating areas meaning that you can enjoy this pretty setting in all weathers and all seasons.

The kitchen is well-equipped with scenic views to admire if you choose to linger over the washing up and also on this level is a bright twin bedroom (with an additional futon available on request) with a door out to the sunny conservatory.

Upstairs there is a light and airy double bedroom with slightly coombed ceilings (taller guests may have to watch their heads), a useful en suite WC and a dormer window with further views out. The house is double glazed and has electric central heating, as well as the open fire.

Outside there are extensive gardens that are mainly laid to lawn with some mature shrubs and daffodils aplenty in spring. It is a perfect place for adults to relax and for children and pets to play.

Map & Local

Head out for the day to the north or south to explore the wonderful countryside. Meander down the Mull of Kintryre to Kennacraig and catch the ferry (two hour crossing) to the islands of Islay and Jura, visit the many whisky distilleries or just enjoy the lovely beaches and beautiful scenery.

Head further down the Mull of Kintyre to Tayinloan and take the ferry across to Gigha and see the Achamore Gardens or visit Campbeltown and beyond.

Alternatively travel over to Claonaig and take the ferry across the Kilbrannan Sound to the Isle of Arran, where you can sample the delights of the Arran Distillery and view Brodick Castle and Gardens.

To the north, travel to Lochgilphead (with its leisure centre and facilities) and head on up Loch Awe towards Oban, or visit the prehistoric cairns and circles which date back from 3000 BC at Kilmartin Glen, with the museum and cafe.

This is good sailing country too - at Ardrishaig you are on the Crinan Canal, where along the interesting towpath walk (with good refreshment stops), you can watch the yachts passing through out on to the Atlantic.
