  The Detail...

Immerse yourself in the natural beauty and stunning views of Western Scotland at Crinan House. This listed 18th Century building sits on a rocky peninsula with the sea of Loch Crinan and estuary of the River Add on either side.

The three bedroom, fully-renovated house sleeps up to six guests across two floors. The traditional nature of the property has been preserved throughout with tasteful decoration and furnishings in-keeping with its rich history. On the ground level is the master bedroom complete with a king size bed, as well as second twin bedroom. There is also a bathroom with shower attachment over the bath and a utility room.

Heading up to the first floor reveals the main social areas of the self catering getaway. The open plan living and dining room has wooden beams overhead, comfy sofas and armchairs sitting in front of the open fire,making it an ideal spot for socialising with your loved ones. There's also a dining room table seating up to six guests and a well equipped farmhouse style kitchen, complete with a range cooker. This floor is also home to another comfy double bedroom, and a second bathroom with a shower.

Outside the well kept grounds offer peace and tranquility, with the sandy beach of the loch just over the garden fence. When the tide is out, miles of sand and shallow pools are revealed. Make sure you enjoy a stroll along the beach while looking out towards the isles of Jura, Scarba, and Mull. This is also a lovely place towatch the beautiful sunset over the horizon.

There is plenty to do in the enchanting surroundings of Crinan Ferry. For history lovers there is Kilmartin Glen - which is considered to be one of the most important areas in Scottish history. You can also visit the Iron Age Dunadd Fort which dates back to the 6th Century, and the stone carvings at Achnabreck.

There are also plenty of walking and cycle routes along the Crinan Canal and through Knapdale Forest and its famous Beaver Trail. If whisky tasting is your thing then there are nearby distilleries in Oban, Islay, Jura, and Springbank.
