Just 3 miles from the small village of Ardfern, on the west coast of Scotland, this is a really lovely Argyll self catering house situated at the end of the Craignish Peninsula in stunning Scottish scenery. The views are glorious towards the islands of Jura, Scarba, Luing and Mull and the infamous Corryvrechyan whirlpool. The house is on Aird farm, which is a traditional Scottish hill farm with sheep, cattle and Appaloosa horses. There are many wonderful walks in the area and on the farm itself - the breath-taking views of Knapdale, Loch Craignish and Jura will keep you going to the top of the hill!

The holiday house has been refurbished to provide an extremely high standard of self-catering accommodation. There are four bedrooms (sleeping 6) and a cosy open fire in the sitting room. It is perfectly placed to explore Argyll with all its attractions - fabulous gardens, stunning scenery, great beaches, riding, golf and excellent walking. Ardfern is famous with yachtsmen and women (Royalty love it too!) and the nearby village of Craobh Haven has a superb seafood restaurant and lots of water sports available. There are some fascinating standing stones and neolithic burial grounds in mid Argyll - one is situated on Aird Farm itself. The new archaeology centre at Klmartin House Museum puts it all into context.

Oban, the gateway to the islands, is 27 miles away and you can take a day trip to Mull or sail to other islands such as Tiree and Colonsay. You can have a great day out pony-trekking or having a riding lesson at Ardfern Riding Centre where they breed Appaloosa horses. Argyll is a very beautiful part of Scotland - green and lush, warmed by the Atlantic Drift.
