WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT DALRIADA

Turn up, switch off, re-charge. A wonderfully refreshing cabin-in-the-woods type holiday on the shores of Loch Goil in the Loch Lomond National Park. Bliss.

THE PROPERTY

Dalriada (pronounced: dael'riada)

A cedar wood chalet holiday home located between the villages of Lochgoilhead and Carrick Castle on the west side of Loch Goil. The entrance is shared with another property which is only occasionally occupied by the owners. Step out of the chalet and you are right on the shores of this scenic tidal sea loch. Bring your binoculars. Depending on the time of year the gannets put on a marvellous display diving for fish and you can look out for seals, which are common. Porpoises are regular visitors and there has been sightings of Otter's on the shoreline this year (2014). No matter what, you're in a perfect spot to look out for them.

Dalriada will be appreciated by visitors looking for a comfortable, modest base to relax in a rural west coast setting. This is a holiday property where you truly come to switch off. The standard of furnishing and fittings are in keeping with a chalet type property. Simple but functional.

Outside there is an enclosed balcony patio area suitable for a pet. Outdoor seating for 2. Bird feeders placed so you can enjoy the visitors from the lounge area. Dalriada is all about the views. This is the place to sit and watch boat traffic on the loch, as well as look out for the birds and animals.

A GUEST COMMENT

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for letting us rent Dalriada. It was such a great holiday - we all had an amazing time and in our rush to leave first thing on Sunday, forgot to make an entry in the visitors book!!! I am almost 100% sure I saw an otter, once when I was swimming - a well-oiled furry creature diving - saw it twice. Then again later that day with the binoculars. They dive for so long it is hard to keep track. We also saw a pine martin as we arrived on day one, loads of oyster catchers, red squirrels and some seals. I was amazed at the amount of wildlife, such a welcome change from London, where the council has just tarmac-ed over the scrubland behind our house that houses a family of foxes and was full of birds. I swam in the loch in my wetsuit every day for about 30-40 minutes, it was absolutely gorgeous - my favourite time to swim was either early or late in the evening (couldn't believe how late it remained light!)." Mark from London
