The chalet is a warm wooden chalet overlooking Kilmartin Glen adjoining a well established garden, which you are invited to enjoy.
Entrance to the chalet is either at ground floor level which leads to a small kitchen and WC/shower room, or via an external staircase to an open plan living area with a mezzanine sleeping area containing a double bed and a single bed.
The living area has a large south-facing picture window overlooking a small burn and also has west facing views to Kilmartin Church and enjoys the afternoon and evening sun.
The chalet is an ideal place to base a short quiet stay to explore Mid- Argyll. It is close to Kilmartin House Museum and the Kilmartin Hotel, so you have a choice of eating in or out.

Kilmartin Glen is set in the heart of mainland Scotland's premier archaeological area.It is a great place for walkers, cyclists, archaeologists, geologists, botanists and bird watchers. Chambered cairns, Standing Stones, Medieval Celtic Crosses, eagles, beaver trials, brown hares and three species of deer may be found in the area.
Ferries to the islands from Oban and other ports give the traveller an opportunity for watching wildlife on the sea as well as the land and air. Look out from a ferry and you might see a White Tailed Sea Eagle or a Golden Eagle. Bring your binoculars for scanning the ocean and the hills, or bring your sea-kayak and explore Argyll's indented coastline.
