About the Owner

My wife, Sally, and I bought Ardbrecknish House in Scotland in 2005 after 25 years of dairy farming in Warwickshire, England. We both enjoy helping people make the most out of their holiday with us if it is suggesting where to go on day trips or where to see wildlife and birds. We chose to come to Ardbrecknish as it stands on the banks of Loch Awe, one of the most accessible yet natural lochs in Scotland where we are able to live life in peace and quiet surrounded by outstanding natural beauty. We also enjoy providing the locals with a friendly bar which acts as a focal point for them, fishermen and visitors alike.

We have been at Ardbrecknish for ten years now and have enjoyed every minute. We feel that we have greatly improved the property but we are always open to suggestions.
