Charming detached Victorian cottage in the Dumfries and Galloway countryside. Perfect for keen walkers or fishermen, and the ideal spot for a rural family getaway.
Set in a fabulous position overlooking Loch Caolisport on the Ellary and Castle Sween estate, just yards from the shore, this delightful stone cottage is a perfect retreat for up to six guests and two hounds searching for peace and tranquillity within a spectacular landscape – amazing for a change of routine with morning walks.
Attractively modernised, this traditionally built lodge house has everything you need for relaxed country living. The comfortable interiors benefit from a homely atmosphere, making it ideal for families and friends who want to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of this beautiful part of Scotland. The cosy sitting room enjoys an open fire, while the separate dining room is perfect for long, relaxed holiday meals. The kitchen leads out to an enclosed private garden – perfect for pups - with BBQ and furniture, where you can enjoy al fresco dining on warmer days while you enjoy the glorious views. Two bright and well-presented bedrooms are found on the first floor, although it should be noted that the spiral staircase leading to them is steep - young children should also be supervised. A further twin bedroom is found on the ground floor, which may be preferable for guests who don't wish to climb the stairs.
The rural location provides great walks but does mean you will need to hop in the car when you need provisions, with Ardrishaig (8 miles) and Lochgilphead (10 miles) providing a good range of shops, as well as a choice of dog-friendly cafes, bars and bistros. Tarbert lies 15 miles south-east, where you can sniff out galleries, pad around the harbour and perhaps take the ferry across to Portavadie to explore the Cowal peninsula. Alternatively, continue 5 miles south to Kennacraig, where you and your pack can jump on a boat across to the whisky islands of Islay and Jura.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
