Trevenek is a detached single storey cottage, situated in the little village of Slockavullin in the historic Kilmartin Glen, Argyll, an area of outstanding archaeological importance and one of Scotland’s richest prehistoric landscapes,
Forest and canal-side walks are all within easy access, and the nearby Crinan Harbour offers water-based activities, including fishing and sailing trips. There are also many restaurants in the area, including the Crinan Hotel, famous for its seafood.
The cottage is entirely on the ground floor, with step free access and has a parking space at the front. The cosy front room has a wood-fired stove, TV/DVD player and CD. The kitchen diner has an electric oven and hob, microwave cooker, fridge and freezer, washing machine and dryer. A small study provides a working area with internet access for the holiday-maker’s own laptop or tablet, and phone (incoming calls only). One bedroom has two single beds, which can also be placed together with king-sized bed-linen if required, and a smaller bedroom has a standard size double bed. The bathroom has bath and over-bath electric shower. Heating is via storage heaters and wood burner.
The cottage is at the top of the village, and final access is via an un-metalled road - drivers be advised! A secluded area in the back garden provides a seating area and barbecue.
A small public green immediately in front of the cottage provides an additional playing space for children. Dogs are welcome for a small additional charge (but because of free-range chickens and other livestock would need to be kept on a lead when in the outside vicinity).
Kilmartin village, a pleasant 30 minute walk or 5 minute drive away, has a general shop and Post Office and the Kilmartin Hotel (which as well as a pub and hotel serving meals can organise fishing and sea trips). The renowned Kilmartin House Museum offers fascinating exhibits including The Valley of Ghosts audio-visual experience, and has a bookshop and award winning café.
Lochgilphead is eight miles away, and has a supermarket, delicatessen, wine shop, gift shops and a well-stocked book shop. There is a swimming pool, and a doctors’ surgery. Although there is a limited bus which serves Slockavullin, a car is recommended to make full use of the many activities available in the area.
