— Welcome to Argyll —
Corrarie is a delightful traditional cottage in Argyll available for self-catering holiday lets all year round. It is ideal for a couple but also popular for family holidays (max 5). The cottage stands in a large, completely enclosed garden with mature trees and shrubs and spring flowers. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, it is at the head of a sea loch with views out to Gigha and beyond. The sandy beach is a short walk across the fields, offering a chance to enjoy this beautiful setting at all times of year. Deer, red squirrels, otters, sea birds, seals and – if you’re lucky – even osprey and golden eagles can be seen in the vicinity.
Inside, the accommodation consists of an entrance hall, a shower room, a double bedroom and two further bedrooms (one twin, one single). There is a fully fitted kitchen and dining area. The spacious sitting-room has comfortable sofa and arm chairs with a beautiful view over the garden, neighbouring fields and out to sea.
The house is heated by electric central heating (£25 worth of electricity is included for weekly lets) and there is a wood burning stove in the sitting room. The water supply is private, so if the weather is exceptionally dry (it can happen!) we may ask you to go slow on showers and clothes washing. Pillows and duvets are provided. Bedlinen can be hired, if not you will need to bring a bottom sheet, pillowcases and duvet cover for each bed used, plus towels. Please specify your requirements when booking.
Our new shower was installed at the end of 2017 and has made a real difference to the cottage.
More recently, we also updated the sitting room and kitchen. See our new look below.
Pets are welcome, but because there is livestock in the surrounding fields, we ask that owners act responsibly and keep dogs on leads when near sheep and cattle.
This is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. It takes about 20 minutes to drive into Tarbert along the single-track road, and 40 minutes to Lochgilphead. The award-winning Kilberry Inn is only 3 miles away and offers delicious meals made from local produce. A day trip to Gigha and the Achamore Gardens is a popular choice, or maybe a long day visit or an overnight stay on Islay, departing from nearby the ferry terminal at Kennacraig.
To the south, the Mull of Kintyre is well worth exploring, visiting Saddle Abbey, Campbeltown and the Mull itself. Further north, Kilmartin Museum provides a fascinating introduction to the pre-historic stone circles of Kilmartin, the “king-making stone” on Dunadd, the “cup and ring” marks nearby. Close to Kilmartin, you can also visit Crinan and its Canal, which is used by yachts passing from the Loch Fyne to the West coast and the Hebrides.
We get fabulous sunsets here all year round,
but the winter ones tend to be clearest and
And here’s a wintry view for anyone wishing to spend Christmas and New Year here.
