Gorstain Bheag Self-Catering Cottage
Set in a private and sheltered part of Barguillean Farm, far from the bustle of everyday life, Gorstain Bheag is a traditional stone cottage full of romantic highland character. Surrounded by stunning Argyll scenery and with the impressive Ben Cruachan as a backdrop, this newly renovated, semi-detached holiday cottage is a wonderful holiday destination for couples or a small family wishing to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this special location.
Secluded from the main house with its own front door and delightful enclosed garden, this single storey self-catering cottage is cosy and welcoming with its country-style furnishings blending in perfectly with the traditional surroundings. The spacious living room with its comfortable seating, dining table and cosy woodburning stove is glorious for quiet evenings and the stylish galley kitchen and charming king-size bedroom create a lovely home to return to and relax in after an active day discovering this historic and beautiful area of Scotland. The sitting room has the added bonus of a sofabed (available on request) allowing the cottage to sleep up to four guests.
There are glorious hill, forest and river walks right from the doorstep, and beautiful Loch Etive is within easy reach. The nearby village of Taynuilt has a hotel, excellent general store, Post Office, butcher and 9 hole golf course and the bustling town of Oban is just 12 miles away offering a wide range of shops and restaurants, many of which serve freshly caught seafood. During the summer the area comes alive with a host of highland games, festival and ceilidhs. Oban is also known as the “Gateway to the Isles” with ferries to Mull and the inner Hebridean islands.
Guests of Gorstain Bheag are welcome to enjoy free access to the beautiful 9 acre Angus’s Garden, part of Scotland’s Garden Scheme, which is 10 minute walk from the cottage. This magical and unspoilt wild garden is ideal for all the family with marked pathways leading around its glorious loch and surrounded by a remarkable collection of rhododendrons, trees and shrubs.
