— 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, and can sleep 5 (or 6, if you include the pull-out bed – but the room is then for young children only and remember there is only one bathroom!). 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 bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, a double bedroom and two further bedrooms (one twin, one single – with pull-out bed available). There is a fully fitted kitchen/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 (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 (yes, this is Scotland!) 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.
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 an overnight visit to Islay 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.
