Modern cottage located in rural Argyll, perfectly situated for an evening's relaxation for your small group of two or three after a day of forest walks, fishing or mountain biking.
This enchanting stone cottage enjoys a secluded position in one of Scotland's most historic landscapes. Sleeping two guests – plus a third on a trundle bed and two canine companions – this property is ideally located if you and your pack want to explore the rugged glens, remote beaches, dramatic scenery and magical islands of this wonderful part of Argyll and simply get lost in the magic of the Scottish scenery.
The newly built, single-storey cottage is found 0.5 miles down a private track, adjacent to the owner's holiday cottage. It benefits from its own patio with furniture, which is a glorious spot to sit out and soak up the beautiful unspoilt surroundings, with roe deer, red squirrels, pine marten and many varieties of birds among the local wildlife whilst your pups sniff out doggy treasures. Inside, the property is comfortably furnished, with a wood burner in the spacious open-plan living area creating a cosy atmosphere for relaxing after an exhilarating day out (note that three steps lead from the living space to the kitchen).
Outside, a 500m walk down a steep path will take you to a small loch that was once the site of a 19th-century slate quarry, as well as the Cairnbaan Hotel, which offers bar meals, fine dining and it's dog friendly. The local area also provides plenty of hill and forest walks, mountain biking and fishing, which is sure to keep tails wagging, while urban hounds are just 3 miles from Lochgilphead, where you will find a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a grooming parlour for mucky pups. Alternatively, 5.5 miles north-west is the harbour village of Crinan, where you can watch the boats come and go while you enjoy locally caught seafood at a hotel or cafe. Further afield, Oban – 35 miles north – offers attractions for all ages, with ferry services to Mull and the Outer Hebridean islands for more distant adventures.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
