Wonderful family cottage on the vast working Bargillean Farm. Visit distilleries, hike mountains or enjoy loch fishing from your very doorstep.

Privacy is assured with a stay in this charming cottage. Whilst set on a working farm, it boasts its own entrance and a pretty enclosed garden and the faraway sounds of farm animals will help create a wonderful countryside atmosphere. Adjacent to the property is the 9-acre Anguss Garden, a beautifully wild spot to while away a sunny day. You might want to go fishing for brown trout on Loch Nant (3 miles) or head to the golf course in Taynuilt (3 miles). This village also boasts a hotel with a local pub and plenty of small shops. Keen mountaineers will enjoy the hike up Ben Cruachan, accessible 15 miles away, whilst those looking for a livelier day out can head to Oban (14 miles) for restaurants and bars. Here you'll also find a historic whisky distillery for tours and samples.

Head inside and find an entrance with plenty of space to hang coats and leave muddy boots. On cooler evenings, flock to the sitting room where you'll find a warming wood burner and TV with DVD player to enjoy, as well as an antique grandfather clock that adds to the home's charm. A connecting door will lead you on through into the open-plan kitchen and dining room. The spacious farmhouse kitchen boasts an electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Relax as a family and dine right here in the kitchen, enjoying wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. A utility room on this floor has a washing machine and tumble dryer for mid-holiday laundry. Head upstairs to bed and find four bedrooms. Two of these are spacious doubles and two are cosy singles, all of which boast pretty feature fireplaces. On this floor, you'll find a small library with an abundance of books to devour, and both a shower room with WC and bathroom with bath and WC.

The cottage has its own pretty garden area that can be accessed via French doors in the lounge. This area forms part of the larger farmhouse gardens which are well cared for to create an outdoor haven and boasts garden furniture for your private use, perfect for dining alfresco and a play area for children. You also have plenty of space to park your car outside the property.

Website should mention that the single track access road is narrow, twisty & steep and takes approx 10 mins from the main road. Good location to explore Oban area and also take excursions to the Hebrides. The cottage information folder is well stocked with tourist information.
