Ederline is a family owned working hill farm of around 13,000 acres of some of the most breathtaking scenery in Argyll and Bute, and these four properties lie in various locations on the estate. Finchairn Cottage (ref UKC1707) is a secluded cottage completely on its own in an elevated position overlooking Loch Awe, in a truly get away from it all location, about a mile along a farm track, with wonderful views of the open hills. South Lodge (ref UKC1708) is a real ‘home from home’, nestled into the side of the woods, in an elevated position, looking out over to the main estate house, with the loch and hills beyond. The School House (ref UKC1709) was originally the dwelling for the school mistress and is situated on the estate at the edge of Ford village. The school playground is now a large garden which is mostly lawn, with a Haha dropping down to a quiet country lane. The School Room (ref UK10912) is spacious accommodation located privately behind The School House. It is a stunning, elegant property for two, with an open plan balcony bedroom and four-poster super kingsize bed. There is a large porch through the front door and a smaller porch to the back of the property off the living room leading to the garden, which was the old playground. Many original features still remain, including the original floor with the old badminton lines!
This beautiful estate has woodland, moors stretching into the distance, and 22 lochs, all with wild brown trout, and you are welcome to try your hand at fly fishing, while on Loch Ederline you can fish for pike, perch and roach. This area is well known for its wildlife, with red and roe deer, pine martens, foxes, the famous Scottish wildcat, otters and red squirrels often seen. There are also sightings of golden eagles and ospreys which make their nests on the estate. Guests are welcome to wander and explore the estate to their heart’s delight in this ever changing landscape of outstanding natural beauty. History lovers will be enthralled with the historical sites on the estate, with two ancient chapels and a castle waiting to be explored, and only a short distance away are archaeological sites, with Kilmartin Glen being the centre. For outdoor enthusiasts there are several activities to be enjoyed, including kayaking and pony trekking, and in season stalking can be arranged. For gentler pursuits there are numerous forest trails and the Crinan Canal tow paths are ideal for walking and cycling. The isles of Islay, Gigha and Arran are easily reached by a short ferry crossing, and the Kintyre Peninsula offers white sandy beaches and some of the best golf courses in Scotland. The area has a variety of good restaurants all within easy reach of Ederline Estate, and which cater for all tastes, including some excellent sea food restaurants. Shop 12 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles. South Lodge can be booked together with Finchairn Cottage (UKC1707), The School Room (UK10912) and The School House (UKC1709) to accommodate up to 14 guests. Please note: The properties lie in various locations on the estate.
