Modern cottage located in rural Argyll, perfectly situated for an evening's relaxation for your small group of two or three after a day of forest walks, fishing or mountain biking.

The rural location of this newly built property offers plenty to see in this spectacular Scottish area. Take the steep path from the rear of the property to a small local loch, originally the site of a 19th-century slate quarry and well worth a visit. Head 3 miles up to the historic Iron Age Dunadd Fort or travel a little bit further afield to the fascinating Nether Largie Standing Stones (7 miles). A unique day out can be had at Bellanoch, 4 miles towards the coast. Here you'll find a bustling marina and a Scottish beaver and wildlife centre to visit. Continue this way up to Crinan (5 miles), where you'll find a small sandy beach.

Sitting adjacent to the owner's holiday home, enter this single-level cottage and immediately come across a spot to hang coats and store muddy boots. The heart of the house is a contemporary yet cosy open-plan living space. Settle into a sofa in the lounge area, with the stylish wood burner flickering away before you. Pop something on the TV or get comfy with a good book. The kitchen can be found up three steps from the open-plan dining area, and is equipped with electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. The bedroom can be found just off the kitchen and is a spacious twin. A fold-down trundle bed is perfect for a child. The bathroom is a large wet room with waterfall shower and WC.

Access the private patio area via the door in the lounge and sit down at the outdoor dining table to enjoy a bite to eat together. Private parking is available to the front of the property.

A charming little cottage in a perfect location that really gives you a feeling of getting away from it all. The cottage is cosy and well equipped, surround by beautiful forest ideal for exploring. Its location offers a wealth of choice for activities. We very much enjoyed our break here, along with our two dogs.

We had an enjoyable stay at the cottage. Remote but not too far from the village. Beautiful countryside and good for exploring the area. In the description speaks of a path of half a mile to Cairnbaan we could not find it.

Great location with plenty to do and experience from the door without using the car! The local scenery and woods surrounding the cottage are sensational and worth expolring. The cottage would have been perfect appart from as previously mentioned the mattresses are replaced as they are in a sorry state and gave us a few sleepless nights and bad backRead mores. A minor gripe, we weren't even left one bin bag at the cottage which I find hard to belive nowadays. Recycling instructions would help. Hide

A very comfortable and warm cottage , well appointed and in lovely location close to Crinan Canal which we particularly enjoyed walking plus were able to visit Kintyre .

Reviewed by Mr Greer, April 2019

Slate Cottage was a wonderful location for a relaxing holiday. The design of the building is both practical and comfortable with a boot room to ensure the outside stays outside and a wet room/ shower area. The location is far enough away from the town to feel peaceful, but only a short hop to the shops in Lochgilphead. The house is at the south endRead more of Kilmartin Glen which is a concentrated area of Neolithic sites with Iron Age forts, stone circles, burial cairns and 4500 year old carved rocks, all of which are easily accessible. Invarary and Oban are relatively close and offer indoor activities if the weather is bad. We were fortunate with the weather so most of our activities were outdoor, our dog thought he was in doggy heaven and our 10 year old developed an unexpected interest in rambling. For the sake of balance, while we didn't experience any challenges which couldn't be overcome, a few of the bulbs were gone, specifically the oven, and the external lights which did cause us some inconvenience late at night. Also, we could have done with more pots, pans and kitchen utensils. I suspect this is down to normal wear and tear and didn't detract from our enjoyment significantly, Hide
