Loch Awe, Nr Inveraray, Argyll
Millside Cottage is set in a peaceful location with fabulous views of Loch Awe. The cottage is surrounded by a working farm stocked with Highland cattle and Blackface sheep.
Loch Awe is the longest freshwater loch in Britain (26 miles long) and is steeped in history from early man inhabiting the many visible crannogs to the time of Robert the Bruce and the infamous Campbells. Historic Inveraray is just 11 miles away where you can visit Inveraray Castle, the beautiful home and gardens of the Duke of Argyll. Also in Inveraray is the award winning Jail which is well worth a visit if you are staying at this country cottage.
The surrounding area is ideal for hillwalking with the Ben Cruachan mountain range as well as delightful woodland walks. Also within easy reach is some of Scotland's most
outstanding scenery: the western and central highlands. From Oban you can take a ferry to the islands of Mull, Iona and Colonsay or visit some of the many famous gardens Argyll has to offer.
Wildlife abounds with golden eagles, otters and deer and the bird-life is excellent too. This is an ideal place to stay for a fishing holiday too - the lochs and rivers are rich in trout and salmon. The romantic ruins of nearby Kilchurn Castle make a wonderful backdrop for a lazy picnic lunch or you can take a trip to the beautiful beaches and rocky coves of the west coast.
