Traditional Stone and Tiled Farm Cottage Overlooking Loch Awe And Ben Cruachan



Updated: 31-Oct-2016
2 bedroom much loved family cottage overlooking loch and mountain view

The property was originally one room with a cattle byre attached. Recent renovations have uncovered the original low beams. Nowadays the roomy cottage benefits from all things modern! The property is surrounded by a working farm and you are likely to see red deer, cattle, native blackface and shetland sheep, pine marten, a variety of birds including eagles and ospreys amongst others out of the window. There is a private garden.

About the Owner

I have lived here on the farm all my life. I am married to Jamie (who was also brought up on Loch Awe on a neighbouring farm) and we have 4 children. We are both very knowledgeable about the area and can give you endless ideas of how to spend your days in Argyll.

From the Owner

The property has been lived in by a series of farming families, shepherds, milkmen, cattlemen over the last 100 years. It is now a holiday let with character. It sits above Loch Awe and is easily accessed by a tarmac drive off the main Dalmally - Inveraray road. It is a private and peaceful location on a working farm, you can choose to spend the days quietly in the garden reading or take a trip to Oban, Loch Lomond, Glen Coe, Crinan Canal, the Isles of Mull and Iona, Inveraray Castle and Jail, Oban Distillery, Inverawe Smokehouse, Cruachan Power Station (the hollow mountain) - the choices are endless. The roads are quiet here, getting around is easy
