Overview

Just a 20 minute drive east is the fishing village of Tarbert (with all facilities) with the remains of its 13th century castle still looking out across the vast expanse of Loch Fyne. Corrarie Cottage offers well designed, welcoming and very comfortable accommodation in a profoundly evocative area of outstanding natural beauty where a delightful sandy beach is in easy walking distance.

Corrarie Cottage is an attractive modern property, built in traditional style, standing in its own half acre of safely fenced garden (with furniture). You can look out on to the stunning landscape surrounding the property and forget the worries of everyday life in these calm and tranquil surroundings!

The cottage's charming, picturesque exterior is mirrored by its eminently aesthetically pleasing interior and the large windows give a feeling of space and light throughout. Decorated in an elegant fashion, it is perfect for a civilised getaway with all the comforts of home, but the added advantages of an idyllic holiday location.

Map & Local

Knapdale is designated as a National Scenic Area, celebrated as one of Scotland's finest landscapes and there is so much beautiful countryside to discover right on the door step of Corrarie Cottage and also a beautiful beach not 15 minutes walk away.

Visitors can follow the tumbling river, which runs past the cottage, downstream across three fields, passing ancient standing stones, to the sandy shore of Loch Stornoway. Here, at the water's edge, where otters and seals can frequently be seen, guests can admire the glorious panoramic views across the sea to the Isle of Islay. The more intrepid can venture upstream from the cottage, to the ruined township of Baillidh or the fresh water lochs nestled in the hills beyond (fishing permits are available).

If you venture a little further from the cottage you can experience the fine food served at the Kilberry Inn (open April to October), which featured in the Hairy Bikers BBC series 'Food Tour of Great Britain' where they were beaten in a cook-off by its resident chef and owner! You can also view the late medieval Kilberry sculptured stones which are on display at the site of St Barr's Chapel near Kilberry castle just outside the village.

Tarbert, with its welcoming natural harbour, provides ferry links to Portvadie on the Cowal peninsula as well as from nearby Kennacraig to the isles of Islay and Jura - both islands are a must for whisky lovers!

Drive 15 minutes more to the south and you can take a ferry from Claonaig to the Isle of Arran, where, among other things, you can appreciate the impressive castle ruins of Lochranza and sample the local tipple at the Isle of Arran Distillery. If a wee taster is not quite enough, it's not far to take a bottle back to the cottage and enjoy it beside the wood-burning stove.
