The Carriage is a luxury converted GWR train carriage that sleeps two. Recently renovated, the property does a fantastic job of marrying its new and old finishings and features in style, giving it massive amounts of charm and character. The jaw-dropping views of the nearby loch and mountains available from the carriage only work to amplify this effect and it truly is a haven for nature-lovers. Add to this the fab outdoor bath and you've got a wonderful spot for a romantic retreat.
Thanks to its firepit and outdoor seating area, guests at the carriage will have ample opportunity to spend time outside enjoying the fresh mountain air. No worries if you're more of an indoorsy type, though, you'll find a cosy, thick bathrobe with your name on it inside, which you can snuggle up in next to the wood-burning stove for a cosy evening in.
Self-catering guests will love the generous kitchen in the carriage, which is fully-equipped to make cooking a breeze. The shower room is home to double wash-hand basins and mirrors, and ties effortlessly into the living space, which comes complete with a comfy sofa, smart TV, and the aforementioned wood-burning stove. At one end of the carriage is the adorable sleeping nook, boasting a plush, king size bed and 100% cotton linen sheets.
At the carriage, you've got some of the absolute gems of the Scottish landscape on your doorstep and if you're up for a bit of a drive, you can take a day trip to the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The region is also home to some fantastic fishing spots, countless walking and cycling routes, loch cruises and even a distillery. While Loch Lomond is especially iconic, the entirety of the National Park is absolutely worth visiting.
Fans of history and culture will likely enjoy visiting some of Argyll's many well-preserved castles, such as Inverary Castle or Kilchurn Castle. Kilchurn Castle is an incredibly atmospheric destination; resting on the shore of Loch Awe, this 15th century ruin is unbelievably picturesque and makes for a fascinating day out (note: Kilchurn Castle is generally only open during the summer months). Visitors to Inverary Castle may also like to stop by Inverary Jail, which is known for being one of the best-preserved courtroom and jail complexes in the world.
Price includes electric, oil and two bags of logs.
