Getting there



The area is full of possibilities. Here are just some.

Archaeology, History - Argyll has the highest concentration of prehistoric monuments in Scotland with standing stones, burial cairns and cup and ring marks all in evidence. Dunadd Fort is less than a mile from the house. Kilmartin House is an important centre of information from which to start an exploration.

Astronomy - low light pollution provides an excellent opportunity to star-gaze on a clear night from the house. The Milky Way is often visible.

Bird, wildlife and fauna watching - within a range of four miles, the surrounding terrain spans from hill to field to marshland to coast offering a variety of habitats within a concentrated area.

Cycling - the bike is an excellent way to explore Mid-Argyll. The roads are reasonably quiet and there are few steep hills. Local bike hire is available from Crinan Cycles in Ardrishaig - see Mid Argyll Cycle Club link for contact details and for information about mountain bike trails.

Fishing - sea-angling, pier and river fishing are all available locally.

Golf - courses at Lochgilphead, Tarbert, Carradale, Dunaverty and Machrihanish.
