The area is rich in history with many castles to explore and the early Celtic remains which are all around with the spectacular burial sites around Kilmartin which now has a fine visitor and Interpretive Centre. Cross the ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’ to Seil Island and go on to explore the Isle of Luing or visit Easdale Island with its small museum. Oban is within easy reach with the opportunity for day trips to the inner Isles of Mull and Iona. The beautiful fishing villages of Tarbert, Tayvallich and Crinan are a short ride away and offer some spectacular views, fine eating places and a virtually unlimited choice of things to do. Ferries to Islay, Ghia and Arran are within easy reach. From Ardfern, about 15 mins drive away, it is possible to take a boat trip around Loch Craignish to see the seals and bird life or take a little longer trip across the sound and see the famous Gulf of Corryvreckan and its notorious whirlpool. Passing near to the Isle of Jura you might catch sight of one of a number of golden eagles, which nest on the island.
In our garden we have seen red squirrels, heron and a wide variety of bird life. Osprey breed in the area and at nesting time may often be seen over the Loch. Red deer too are a common sight.
The nearest supermarket shopping is at Lochgilphead (14 miles) but there is a village shop in Kilmartin about 2 miles away. The petrol filling station just out of Lochgilphead is also very useful and sells coal and many provisions. The Kilmartin Hotel, which is about 10 minutes drive serves food as does the visitor centre for the spectacular museum in Kilmartin. The Loch Melfort Hotel at Aduaine, the Tayvallich Inn, the Galley of Lorne at Ardfern, the Crinan Hotel and, the Cairnbaan Hotel all offer excellent food at reasonable prices.
Fishing tickets are available locally. Some fishing on Loch Awe is free.. Fishing from our own riverbank is also permissible.

Car parking space is at the side of the cottage. There is a covered wood store and lockable shed where it is possible to keep bicycles and where we keep garden chairs, barbecue, coal etc. The garden has picnic table and benches overlooking the stream and a summerhouse with viewpoint decking up the hill with table, chairs bbq etc.
