"an idyllic holiday"

Since the millenium, six of us, including relatives and friends, have been returning most years to Clachan dubh. That speaks for itself. We thoroughly recommend it to those who appreciate a quiet situation, scenery and a comfortable billet, at a very reasonable price. From Clachandubh you can explore walks over the Ederline Estate,visit the coast not far away and from there explore the islands of The Inner Hebrides. Last but not least , Willa and Angus at Ederline House make us very welcome. We can't wait to return again to relax and enjoy a break from the busy everyday world.

"Well equipped and cosey cottage in a beautiful and peaceful location"

Clachandubh is a well built solid stone cottage close to a fast flowing stream with beautiful views out the back.It is a very quiet and tranquil spot where the sound of the stream sends you off to a relaxing sleep.It has a log fire in the large and spacious living room where there are plenty pf comfy chairs to recline into.There are no immediate nieghbours.The bedrooms are clean and comfortable. The cottage is well equipped with information of places to visit,books to read and everything you could need in the kitchen. There are loads of places to visit nearby especially the Sea at Crinan,Loch Awe and miles of beautiful wild west coast countryside.Excellent for walking,biking and boating.I really enjoy the trout fishing in the hills behind the house.You can buy a day pass. I highly recomend this part of the world if you like wildlife,walking,exploring and escaping from the rat race!

"in peaceful location within easy reach of beautiful landscape to explore"

This cottage is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding countryside whilst still being within easy reach of the local town. The sea is also not far away and the nearest main road(A816) takes you on a beautiful drive up the West coast to Oban and beyond. There is wonderful walking in the area with a wealth of wildlife, many cairns and castles. If you like fishing this is the place for you with rivers and lochs in abundance. The coastal village of Crinan is a lovely place to visit where you can watch the boats come in from the sea and travel along the Crinan canal.(this is also a great place to bicycle) The owners are incredibly welcoming and helpful - they will give you lots of ideas for exploring and entertaining yourselves in the local area. Just go - and let the clean air, soft water and peace wash over you.
