With a wood burner, table tennis, vast natural grounds, fantastic views and so much more, this property is a holiday home like no other just a short walk from the sea.

Standing in an elevated position with magnificent views across Loch Craignish and beyond towards the Sound of Jura and The Paps, Corlach is a stunning and contemporary detached holiday home with patio doors opening to east and west terraces for morning and evening sunshine. The busy village of Ardfern is close by, with its range of local amenities, including a village store, a café and a pub. The yacht centre contains a well stocked chandlery with fashionable clothing, as well as hardware. The village of Craobh Haven, three miles away, also has a Marina and a good pub/restaurant.

Nearby, Oban offers a more extensive range of services, with good shopping, a leisure centre and a selection of seafood restaurants. From Oban there are plenty of ferries to the Inner Hebrides, including the isles of Mull, Iona and Staffa.

Much to the delight of history enthusiasts, the area is steeped in a rich heritage. Archaeological remains are in abundance here - Kilmartin Glen has at least 350 ancient relics, 150 of which are prehistoric. Explore the Crinan Canal, Knapdale National Scenic Area, or head to Kintyre Peninsula, with its white sandy beaches and rugged coastline. Wildlife lovers won’t be disappointed either, as the region is a hotspot for porpoise, dolphins, minke whales and basking sharks. Bird-watching highlights include sea eagles, golden eagles and puffins, whilst otters, seals and deer can be seen along the shore.
There are plenty of walks and outdoor activities nearby, including horse riding, fishing on a nearby hill loch, cycling, golf and a variety of water sports to name but a few. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, rugged glens and sea lochs, this is truly an ideal base for touring the west coast of Scotland or simply to relax and take in the view. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

We were 8 people and have stayed in this beautiful cottage for 6 days. We have found the cottage comfortable, clean with beautiful garden around. The place has been professionally designed to get maximum comfort. The cottage has got fully equipped kitchen, nice two bathrooms and bedrooms. The nearest good place for shopping and eating in good restaurants is Oban city within 30 minutes driving. The Landlord was very nice and polite person.

We had a fantastic holiday in Corlach. Outstanding property, with the most incredible views. Despite the poor weather we did lots of close by walks and cycles. The owners were excellent and superb with the kids letting them bottle feed the lamb. We would recommend Lucy's in Ardfern for lunch or coffee and cake - friendly and quality food! Would come back if in the area again.
