This terraced cottage at No8 is the sister of No4 (almost identical and practically next door) sitting on the banks of the Crinan Canal at Cairnbaan, Lochgilphead close to Kilmartin in Argyll. The Crinan Canal offers the ideal environment to enjoy the wonderful scenery, fishing, canoeing, sailing, horse riding, walking and cycling with many cycle tracks signposted throughout the glen and plenty of forests and hills nearby should you wish something more energetic. Wildlife includes many woodland birds and birds of prey, beavers in the reserve at Knapdale, red squirrels, red and roe deer, seals, otters and occasionally pine martins. Kilmartin is home to the spectacular ruin of Carnasserie Castle, Nether Largie standing stones, Temple Wood Stone Circle and numerous ancient burial mounds. The medieval hill-fort of Dunadd was considered to be the capital of the ancient Gaelic Kingdom of Dalriada and has ancient stone carvings and the stone footprint believed to be part of a mediaeval coronation ritual. Kilmartin Museum is well worth a visit to discover the rich history of this ancient land.The nearby town of Lochgilphead has a variety shops, cafes restaurants, hospital/doctors surgery, a swimming pool, golf course and sports center. There is also a shop where bicycles can be hired. Boats can be chartered from Crinan harbour and there are wildlife safari trips around the islands where it is possible to see whales, porpoise, seals, many sea birds including golden and white-tailed eagles, and the spectacular Corryvreckan Whirlpools. A walk, cycle or drive from Crinan to Ardrishaig is 9 miles and provides you with the perfect opportunity to take in the stunning views of Mid Argyll and watch the boats sailing by. Recently decorated to a high standard with double glazing and bath room with a claw foot bath, the cottage has two bedrooms, with the room to the front giving open views across the canal to the hills beyond, and the rear twin bedroom having views out to the woodland to the back of the cottage.. The ground floor comprises a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a cosy sitting room with an enclosed wood-burning fire. Starter pack of logs etc provided. Free Wi-Fi and internet connection recently installed. Outside table/chairs are provided in summer months in the small alpine garden to the front to relax and watch the boats go by. There is a bike store at the rear of the property in the lane. Perfect for a relaxing holiday. Ideal for walking, cycling, hill climbing, bird watching, fishing, change over days are flexible depending on length of your visit. The cottage is easily accessed from Glasgow via Loch Lomond and also from Oban to the north. One well behaved dog is allowed in the cottage living areas but only under responsible supervision and by prior arrangement. Prices are based on the start date of your holiday and are for one week (Saturday to Saturday). The cottage is also available to rent for weekends (Fri-Mon) and midweek (Mon-Fri) out-with the peak periods. Please contact me for prices. Entry is usually available after 4pm and departure is by 10am - these times can be changed if required.
Please not that I do not take bookings that overlap over the weekend into the following week
