This delightful 18th century, historically listed building lies at the end of a rocky peninsula, between the sea at loch Crinan and the estuary of River Add.
Right beside sandy beach, private garden, antique furniture, cosy crackly fire.
Fully renovated and very tastefully furnished to the STB '4 Star' standard, and with lovely antiques, it provides attractive accommodation in tranquil surroundings. The sandy beach is just over the garden fence, and its own well-kept grounds command one of those fine views for which Western Scotland is renowned. When the tide is out, it is possible to while away the hours beach combing along miles of sand, looking out towards the isles of Jura, Scarba and Mull and splashing through shallow pools which reflect the amber colours of the setting sun. Crinan House is an excellent base from which to explore Argyll and the western Isles. Many places of interest are within easy reach, including Kilmartin House Museum and the Ancient Standing Stones and Circles. Forest trails and hill walks amidst the Inverinan and Knapdale forest beckon, and there is always the pleasure of returning to a warm and cosy home, where a crackling open log fire awaits. Lochgilphead, with its variety of shops, restaurants, swimming pool and facilities for golf is 8 miles away. Here the Castle Riding Centre runs highly enjoyable riding courses, and Kilmory Woodland Park boasts an Iron Age Fort, bird hide and loch side views. A Little further afield, Inveraray has a truly memorable setting, the brilliant white arches of Front Street reflected in the still waters of Loch fyne. Attractions in the town include Inveraray jail, now a museum recounting prison conditions from medieval times up until the 19th century, and the neo-gothic Inveraray Castle which is home to the Combined Operations Museum and recalls the intriguing wartime roles of Inveraray as a training centre for the D-Day landings.
