Spacious holiday home with loch views and direct access to hill walking trails
CORONAVIRUS GUIDANCE – BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE. We are well into this pandemic. The only thing for certain is, nothing is for certain. I have personally booked my own short breaks and holidays for later in 2021. I did so knowing that the local rules may change, but also with the view that things will get better. It fair lifts the spirits to have something to look forward to. In that light we take your booking in good faith that the lockdown restrictions will have been lifted and visitors are welcome. In the event that lockdown changes in any part of the UK that will stop you coming, you will be offered a change of date (subject to any upwards price change), a credit, or a refund minus a £25 admin charge. Please understand that this offer is based on the rules at the time and not on if you ‘think’ the rules will change. I always travel with insurance. You have the option of taking Booking Protection. This will cover you in the event of illness and other causes as explained in their cover. If you are planning well in advance, or booking a high value holiday, we recommend you consider this. Leonard Gow.Cuilimuich – Main house
Tucked away at the end of an access road in the loch side village of Carrick Castle, Cuilimuich is a semi-detached modern house within the walls of an original farmhouse. It sits on a large lot with loch views to the front and mountain views to the side and rear. In addition to the modern interiors the outstanding feature of this home is the direct access from the garden to a number of the walking trails on the Carrick Castle Estate. Head off on the 1 hour circular walk, or plan a longer trek following the routes up to the mountain scenery which is the backdrop to this fjord type loch.
Adjoining the main house is Cuilimuich Byre. This is a separate 2 bedroom holiday property. The main house plus the Byre work well for larger parties.
The village is within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. Your first trip to Carrick Castle via a single track road from the Rest-and-be-Thankful will be a memorable one. The village feels, if not a million miles away from the central belt, certainly this is somewhere that you have to make the effort to come to, and it is all the more special for it. Carrick Castle is a place to enjoy picture postcard scenery. At the head of the loch is the village of Lochgoilhead. There you will find an impressive leisure centre, a Costcutter store, places to eat and the local pub at the Goil Inn.
PET - £35 pet charge
Small breed dogs – Maximum 2 dogs at £35 per dog
Medium to large breed dog – Strictly 1 dog – £35
If in doubt please check with us before booking.
Please be aware that your dog is not allowed in the bedrooms or on the furniture.
The main house has a large, enclosed, grassy area to the front with a picnic table.
Cuilimuich Byre has a spacious grassy area which is open to the hill road to the rear of the house. Fenced on one side.
The views from these hill walks are of the impressive mountains as well as down over the fjord type Loch Goil to where it meets Loch Long. If you are a walker you will be spoilt for choice – for there is nothing quite like walking out your back door and heading off up a hill. Be sure to bring your binoculars as there is excellent bird watching, and look out for Eagles.
With little traffic in the village it is also pleasant to take the shore road through the village and then on to the path over the hill to Ardentinny.
Depending on the time of year the gannets put on a marvellous display diving for fish, and you can look out for seals and porpoises which are regular visitors. For fishing you can hire a boat from Loch Goil Cruisers, or fish from the shore.Loch Goil Trails - FREE Local Walking Guide
