This lovely, traditional, end-terraced cottage is set in an idyllic location on the banks of the Crinan Canal in Cairnbaan in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland.

Just perfect! A beautiful little cottage with everything you could possibly need! Christmas tree and decorations had been put up for when I arrived and wine and mince pies left out! Lovely touch! Will definitely book again as soon as I know our Christmas holiday dates!

What can we say about this beautiful cottage and place apart from it was stunning. Cottage was very clean upon arrival with a goodie tray left for us in a very nice kitchen. Very cosy cottage with 2 good size bedrooms, One with double bed and the other was 2 singles and a good size bathroom. Cottage had great parking...

The local area is called Dalriada, an ancient costal kingdom in the Heart of Argyll. <BR><BR>Cairnbaan is only 3 miles from the town of Lochgilphead which has a supermarket, petrol stations, banks, shops, pubs, Indian and Chinese restaurants, a chip shop, a swimming pool, sports centre and a 9 hole golf course open to visitors. If you wish to explore further afield, Oban (34 miles) is known as the 'Gateway to the Isles' and here you can catch ferries to several Inner Hebridean islands including Mull, Iona, Tiree and Colonsay.

How to get there
Airport: Glasgow: 82.0 mi
Railway: Oban: 34.2 mi
Cairnbaan is about 3 miles north of Lochgilphead, Argyll on the A816 Lochgilphead to Oban road. Turn off the A816 onto the B841 (signposted Crinan), continue past the Cairnbaan Hotel and instead of crossing the canal road bridge, turn right (straight on) onto a single track road which follows along the side of the Crinan Canal. Continue on this road for about half a mile and after Lock No. 8, take the track to the right and about 50m along, you will see the cottage, first on your left. The gates at the side of the house lead into the parking area and garden. <BR>
