Mheall Cottage is a traditional 19thC estate cottage situated on beautiful moorland in the heart of the ancient Gaelic kingdom of Dalriada.

Your self-contained space is ideal for 2-4 guests for probably 2-5 nights and fills a niche - it's not quite a whole house but it offers you a lot more room, facilities and independence than booking 2 bedrooms in a conventional B&B.

The 3 things my guests say they like most about staying here are: it's clean, it's quiet and the location is exceptional.

De ruimte
The 'guest suite' is essentially half a cottage with your own private entrance.

The space is comprised of: 2 bedrooms (1 Double and 1 Twin), 1.5 bathrooms, a kitchenette/day room, hallway and a porch.

It's a fixed price for the entire space whether you are 1 person or 4 people, but I will consider a discount if you are one or two people wanting to stay but not requiring the second bedroom/WC.

Bedroom 1 THE DOUBLE ROOM: A light, spacious double bedroom with a fully en-suite bathroom, a great shower, a king-size bed and beautiful views towards the sea.

Bedroom 2 THE TWIN ROOM: A cosy twin bedroom with 2 single beds and its own adjacent bathroom with WC and sink.

* PLEASE NOTE: The one shower is in the main double room - guests/kids in Bedroom 2 will need to use the shower in this room.

KITCHENETTE/DAY ROOM: Your own private kitchenette is equipped with fridge, dishwasher, sink, microwave, single induction hob, kettle and toaster. Basic cooking/serving utensils are provided. This is not a fully-equipped kitchen (so no conventional oven, grill or frying pans) so if you are needing to cook 3-course meals every night it's not going to be sufficient, but for preparing your own breakfast/snacks, keeping things in the fridge (with icebox), microwaving and/or boiling up a pan of pasta/rice for the kids it's going to be perfect.

In this space there is also ample room to sit and relax at the table, and there are also shelves full of maps, books and information to help you plan your day in the area.

PRIVATE ENTRANCE/PORCH SPACE: your own private front-door access plus a porch space to hang coats and leave walking boots etc

PARKING: Ample off-street parking

---

If you are looking for a comfortable, self-contained and unique place to stay in the home of someone local who knows the area very well you are on the right page. The reviews of Mheall Cottage from previous guests tell all the same story - a story I hope you will add to yourself once you have visited.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to meeting you!

Waar je zult verblijven

Lochgilphead, Argyll & Bute, Verenigd Koninkrijk

Mheall Cottage is situated roughly at the midway-point between the attractive and busy seaside town of Oban, the historic royal burgh of Inverary, and the ferry ports for the islands of Islay, Jura, and the Arran summer route.

But you'll want to spend as much time as you can in the area because with its rich history, castles, spectacular coastline, islands, beautiful woodlands and gardens, rugged hills and diverse wildlife, Mid-Argyll is a fascinating and spectacular part of Scotland to explore!

Here are some of my personal highlights:

From Mheall Cottage you can walk directly out of the front door through KILMARTIN GLEN - visiting TEMPLE WOOD STONE CIRCLE and the famous CHAMBERED BURIAL CAIRNS along the route, all the way up to the award-winning KILMARTIN MUSEUM, the epicentre of local historical information and where an excellent lunch/coffee awaits you in the Cafe.

Or follow the trail east through MOINE MHOR nature reserve (one of Britain's finest peat-bog habitats for all sorts of remarkable flora and fauna) and up to the top of DUNADD FORT - first built in the Iron Age and subsequently a settlement used by the Gaelic rulers of Dalriada Kingdom in the 6th to 9th Centuries. A bit further on is the prehistoric rock art at ACHNABRECK - some of the finest and largest examples of stone-carved cup and ring marks anywhere in the country.

BOAT TOURS depart from CRINAN, TAVYALLICH or ARDFERN and can take you out to the Islands and the famous CORRYVRECKAN WHIRLPOOL (Europe’s second largest whirlpool), where you may also catch a glimpse of DOLPHINS and the rare WHITE-TAILED SEA EAGLES.

Take a stroll along the beautifully maintained and historic CRINAN CANAL, visit DUNTRUNE CASTLE GARDENS, or simply relax on the glorious sands of nearby CRINAN FERRY - all of which are visible from Mheall Cottage.

KNAPDALE FOREST is traversed by many great cycling routes, and the various Hill Lochs (which can be fly-fished on a day pass) are home to the famous SCOTTISH BEAVER TRAIL as well as other interesting wildlife habitats.

Highly recommended are the local WHISKY DISTILLERIES: the nearest mainland ones being OBAN (50mins drive N.) and AUCHENTOSHAN (90mins drive S.), while to get to the famous island distilleries of ISLAY you are within easy reach of the ferry from Kennacraig port (45mins drive S.).

In addition to its beautiful BEACH, the tastefully restored 11th Century KIMORY KNAP CHAPEL houses some remarkable Celtic tomb carvings, and the views out to the islands from this peninsular are truly spectacular.

CASTLE SWEEN commands spectacular views of Loch Sween and is thought to be one of Scotland’s oldest castles (12th Century), while CARNASSERIE CASTLE stands on a hill just outside Kilmartin and is also well worth a visit.

The royal burgh of INVERERARY - seat of the Duke of Argyll - is only 45 minutes away with its impressive CASTLE and JAIL. Or pop down to the picturesque fishing village of TARBERT - home to some of Scotland's finest and freshest seafood.

In terms of amenities - the town of LOCHGILPHEAD is only 11km away, meaning useful essentials like a GARAGE, PHARMACY and SHOPS are within easy reach of Mheall Cottage.

The attractive and busy seaside town of OBAN is about 50 minutes drive away with its famous HARBOUR, RAILWAY/FERRY PIER, WHISKY DISTILLERY and SEAFOOD RESTAURANTS. Climb up and take in the breathtaking views of KERRERA and the ISLE OF MULL from McCAIG'S TOWER, or visit the historically important and spectacular castles of DUNOLLIE and nearby DUNSTAFFNAGE...
