Scottish Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Forest Cottage is surrounded by a renowned area full of rich wildlife, from deers, otters and eagles.

"Stunning locations in breathtaking scenery..."

In a magnificent setting by the sea, Ardmaddy Castle sits in its own bay with unrivalled views over Seil Sound and the world famous local Slate Islands, designated one of Scotland’s National Scenic Areas. Graded ‘4 Star’ by the Scottish Tourist Board, these four cottages (SBZ, SRW, SRX and SRY) and Caddleton Farmhouse (UNP) are set in secluded, peaceful locations around the estate and offer an ideal base for exploring this stunning part of the West Coast of Scotland.
The castle’s spectacular gardens are open all year round through Scotland’s Gardens Scheme and are a delight for gardening enthusiasts. The area is renowned for its abundant wildlife with porpoise, dolphins, basking sharks, otters, deer, eagles and wealth of seabirds often seen. Sailing, rowing and motor boats are all available for guests to hire, and there is free fishing on Ardmaddy’s stocked hill loch. There is also a central games room with table tennis, darts and a pool table, whilst Caddleton Farmhouse (UNP) and The Stables (SBZ) have their own games room. Guests can also use the castle’s tennis court.
The bustling harbour town of Oban known as the ‘Gateway to the Islands’ is only 12 miles away and has wonderful seafood restaurants, shops and bars. From Oban there are boat trips to the Inner Hebridean Isles, including Mull, Iona, Staffa, Colonsay and Tiree. For the outdoor enthusiast, local activities include horse riding, coasteering, canyoning, canoeing, sailing, diving and golf. Fort William and Glencoe are a short drive away offering very popular climbing and skiing. Explore beautiful gardens and ruined castles in an area rich in historical legacy or take a leisurely walk or cycle along one of the many forest tracks. Visit Bonawe Iron Works, Cruachan Hollow Mountain, the Sealife Centre and Inveraray Jail. Or relax and enjoy the unspoilt natural beauty surrounding the cottages at Ardmaddy. Shops 12 miles, pub/restaurant 2½ miles.

    Had short weekend break, 3 night stay, for seven of us and two dogs for one of our daughters 21st birthday celebrations. Warmly welcomed by tea set and shortbread waiting for us and items to make either tea and coffee on arrival. We took our food with us so it didn't bother us that local amenities were a wee distance away. The cottage is set in a beautiful , remote and tranquil location. Plenty of walks. Great open fire and cottage was ideal for our dogs as garden was enclosed .Jan came to make sure we were settled in ok and if there was anything we required. Overall fantastic stay and would definitely go back for a longer stay. A gem in the west coast of Scotland.

    Stunning location, excellent accommodation, warm friendly staff. We could not fault forest cottage or indeed the rest of the estate. If you are looking for a complete getaway where your every need is taken care off including a tray set for tea and biscuits on arrival and a welcome pack for the dogs! Then look no further. We booked our next trip whilst we were still there. There aren't really any close by amenities so you need to stock up, but that's perfect t for us. Oban has all the shops you could need so a trip there does the job. The castle also provides frozen meals and fresh vegetables so you will not go hungry.

    Forest lodge is truly a home from home. Extremely comfortable and has everything you could want including extra blankets if it gets cold, a games room to entertain children and adults, plus extra towels for dogs. The location is stunning with excellent dog walks and messing about on boats. The trek to the cottage can be a bit nerve racking as it is a single track with a couple of blind bends and drops which makes it interesting with tractors and sheep!! But if you want great views and a peaceful location this is for you. The staff who attend to the cottages are friendly and full of knowledge.

    This cottage has everything and more that you could want for a holiday in Scotland, it is extremely comfortable and situated looking out over lovely countryside, the access to the Garden at Ardmaddy castle is a bonus and is worth a visit and a nice long chat with the gardner, I do not know how he manages such a large garden and so well kept. A short walk across the fields brings you to the coast, and Jan our hostess ensured we had everything we needed, and gave us some advice about places to visit that we did not know about and the advice was taken and visits thoroughly enjoyed.
