The main letting accommodation comprises two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, all of which have en-suite facilities.

Breakfast is served in the panelled dining room and the parlour is set aside for the use of guests in the evenings and includes television, Hi-Fi and the luxury of an open coal/log fire. Free broadband WiFi and ethernet connections are available throughout.

The house is surrounded by its own private grounds comprising 6 acres of lawns and woodland with a paddock for the ponies and a walled garden, maintained as a wild flower meadow. An interesting Folly, beside the walled garden, was built in the 1890's around a window from 13th century Dunblane Cathedral. The pond is home to numerous newts, frogs and toads.

The present estate, some 130 acres, includes an important Iron Age fort at the top of Bealloch Hill (which you are very welcome to walk up to - bring your wellies!). Depending upon the time of year, the resident wild roe deer and the odd fox may often be seen around the house, with owls, bats and hedgehogs providing night-time interest.

A short ride into town leads to a selection of restaurants and cafes and we are also convenient for the golf clubs of Machrihanish and Dunaverty. The airport is only two miles away, with flights twice daily from Glasgow International Airport.

Sheltered by the Gulf Stream and noted for its palm trees, this part of Kintyre has its own little weather system often leading to much better weather locally than even a few short miles away. This is a fabulous walking and cycling area, with rolling moorland vistas, wild sea cliffs, numerous sandy beaches and a selection of islands - the island of Gigha makes a delightful day excursion from here, for example. We are walkers ourselves with an in-depth knowledge of the area and we are always pleased to offer suggestions, including many stunning walks that you won't find in any of the books... well off the beaten track.
