Description from owner

Description

The cottage dates back to the 1800's where it was a shepherds cottage. We have still maintained the wooden walls and the huge open fire. The cottage is well equipped to provide 'Home from Home' and is an excellent base to explore from. We are a short drive from the coast and well positioned between the ports to go and explore the Islands. The estate hire out canoes, rowing boats and bicycles. We also can arrange wild brown trout fishing in the hill lochs and course fishing on Loch Ederline. The local area is steeped in history and archaeological sites. There are many local attractions and activities including horse riding, sea trips, museums, jails ,golf courses, mountain biking,walking and bird watching to name just a few.

Further details

The cottage is let out on a weekly basis from a Friday 4.00pm till Friday 10.00am

We do accept short lets out of high season but a minimum of three days.

We would need a £60 deposit to secure the booking

We would need a £60 deposit to secure the booking with the balance paid six weeks before the guests arrived.

We provide all linen/towels/tea towels and logs for the open fire.

if there were any breakages we would hope some money would be left to cover it.

Electricity is metered and charged at cost at the end of your stay.

We do ask if the cottage can be left as clean and tidy as found.

Further details indoors

The entrance to Finchairn Cottage is through the conservatory which has soft seating and a dining table and chairs as the view an amazing back drop for dining. You enter the indoor porch through two glazed doors, on the left is a large twin room and to the right is the sitting room. This also has a dining table and chairs and soft seating gathered around the open fire. The kitchen is well equipped with all that you will need, it has a new ceramic hob and cooker. The shower room is downstairs with walk in shower, wash hand basin and loo. The washing machine/tumble dryer is positioned in the corner of this room with a table above. The stairs lead up to a landing with two rooms leading off. To the left in a twin and to the right a double bedded room. The views from these rooms are also stunning and look down the back of the cottage to Loch Awe. The cottage has 'Total Control' electric heating and all the beds have new electric blankets.

Further details outdoors

The garden is fenced to keep out the sheep but the deer still jump in, so hence no borders of shrubs for them to feed on! The access to the cottage is up a half mile gated track and parking is available beside the cottage. There is a log shed to the back of the cottage with a clothes line as well. This cottage is remote but a tonic to be consumed regardless of season.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Argyll has a stunning coastline to explore which is only fifteen minutes away and stretches over 2800 miles, longer than the coast of France.

The Hebridean Islands are easy to reach by regular ferries, from Oban, Kennacraig, Tayinloon and Claonaig, which are all under an hours drive.

The mainland and the Islands have some fantastic beaches, which will keep the children happy for hours. Private boat trips can be arranged locally to include mackeral fishing or going to visit the third largest whirlpool in the world!!

Lochgilphead

The local area is steeped in history with a museum in Kilmartin to explain its ancient past. The village also has a shop, restaurant and a pub .There are ruined castles and chapels to explore in walking distance from the cottages with an abundance of fishing, walking, horse riding, sea trips, golf courses and water sports in the local area. We do have a smokery in the village of Ford for excellent smoked fish and restaurants only a short drive away in Crinan,Ardfern and Cairnbarn.

“Wonderful & peaceful”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2012

We had a wonderful time in the cottage. It was extremely peaceful and secluded. The cottage itself was fine, especially the conservatory. We had everything we needed and the fireplace was great! The area was also amazing, we saw some ancient castles and prehistoric sites. The information provided on the area was also very complete. All in all, an fully positive experience! Just some minor items: we had some problems both with the kitchen fan and the washing machine, but maybe these have now been fixed. Also, why did we have to clean the entire cottage before we left, when the cleaners came in the very next day. Of course we are used to leaving cottages tidy and proper, take the sheets from the bed etc., but a full cleaning....But, this is just a minor issue, all in all it was wonderful!

“A cosy cottage with in a peaceful and beautiful location with fantastic views”

Reviewed 5 May 2012

My favourite cottage on this lovely Estate. Finchairn cottage (pronounced Finahun!) is in the most peaceful location. When you arrive; before unloading your car, look out from the front of the cottage down to Loch Awe and you will realise that your long drive was completely worth it - all the worries of your day to day life will melt away. This cottage is within easy reach of the A816 (main coastal road to Oban and beyond) and the local town of Lochgilphead which has everything you need. The Estate has a wealth of wildlife ,beautiful walking, streams and lochs with some lovely wild brown trout fishing and coarse fishing for pike. There are bikes, boats and kayaks to hire - In fact, there is plenty to do on this estate without going more that a couple of miles by car! The coast is a short drive away with some lovely beaches and the Crinan canal where you can watch sea going boats come in from the Sound of Jura and travel 'across land' (along the Crinan canal!) to Loch Fyne. (This is also a great bike ride with a good pub somewhere along it) Just go - you'll love it!
