Renovated in 2018 to provide the perfect place to stay, that ticks all the boxes, and has a great feel to it the minute you walk through the door. You will just know straight away………

We are not sure if It is the spacious living space with large windows that take advantage of the stunning panoramic views as well as flood the modern open plan design with natural light that has given it that feeling. Perhaps it is also the carefully chosen furniture and fittings throughout that make it as comfortable as possible after a day exploring this wonderful part of the world. The Designer lighting certainly allows you to create the perfect mood in the cottage. As well as having the comfiest of King size beds with a unique solid oak headboard backlit to create a romantic glow. The ensuite wet room includes a wonderful cascade shower and features a demisting mirror, warm tiles underfoot and a heated towel rail to make sure your towels are warm when you are ready to use them. Quality linen, towels & toiletries all included in the cottage rental. The fitted kitchen is very well equipped for cooking any meal should you choose to do so and there is a coffee machine and microwave as well. The wall mounted 65” smart TV with Freeview in the living area includes Netflix and you can continue watching any late-night film on the second TV in the bedroom if you prefer. Importantly there is free Wi-Fi throughout the cottage. A separate utility room provides an extra toilet with an automatic washing machine available and extra sink to clean these muddy boots ready for the next day’s walking.

There is a landscaped garden accessed through a sliding patio door onto a large balcony where the sun shines most of the day. Craiglora directly overlooks the tidal race known as the Falls of Lora with excellent views of Loch Etive and Ben Cruachan. Many of our guests have told us how much they enjoy the ever-changing tides, spotting seals or otters as well as watching the boats heading up Loch Etive under Connel Bridge, the coastguards out on training sessions or the kayakers disappearing as they challenge the frothing currents and whirlpools.

Craiglora is the perfect location to explore the wonderful West Highlands and if you manage to tear yourself away from relaxing at the cottage you may find you want to explore many interesting walks in Connel and the surrounding area. We have created a couple of maps for you to make it more enjoyable to do that. It is easy to join the Oban to Inverness walking/cycling track directly from the cottage or you might want to book a boat trip up Loch Etive – it is stunning. Craiglora is also a perfectly situated base for visiting many of the Islands accessed via ferries from Oban to Mull, Iona, Lismore or further to Staffa and the Treshnish Isles. Great for heading out on day trips north to Fort William, Mallaig, the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and some of our guests have been as far as the Isle of Skye for a day trip. Heading south of Oban is also very beautiful and not far to cross the famous bridge over the Atlantic to visit the Isle of Seil, Easdale or you can head to the island of Luing. A bit further south lies the not so well known stunning Craignish peninsula or further afield is the fantastic Kintyre peninsula. So many wonderful places to visit whatever direction you choose.

Oh……. and when you arrive at the cottage important to mention there is a marked parking space for one vehicle available at all times. Not a problem to park near the cottage if space for another vehicle is required.

Maybe it is just all of the above brought together that makes Craiglora a truly special place to stay.

Find out more about Ellary & Castle Sween Holiday Park

It is hard to imagine a better place to stay than at one of the cottages scattered along the water’s edge on Ellary Estate. The cottages are all within a stone’s throw of the sea, apart from Cove Cottage which is set up in the hill over Loch Caolisport. They are all detached and standing in their own grounds, allowing you to make the most of the privacy and seclusion of the estate.

Castle Sween Holiday Park is located on the opposite side of the peninsula, and has a quiet bar and restaurant, small shop and gym – so has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. It is best described as off the beaten path, as it enjoys a very peaceful, scenic location – and is the opposite of what springs to mind when someone says the words ‘holiday park’.

Ellary offers thousands of acres of truly unspoilt coastal and hill areas just beckoning you to explore further. Dogs are most welcome, and guests have unrestricted access to the whole estate so your four-legged friend is guaranteed to enjoy it! Bring your boat/kayak and have a picnic on one of the many small islands (where you might even be joined for lunch by the otters!), or bring your book and enjoy sitting out in the garden listening to the birds.

There are few places which offer such a stunning location, or the opportunity to both rent and own your own holiday home right on the beach like Castle Sween does.

There are off-road bike trails suitable for all abilities all within a short drive of the cottage.

There are so many wonderful hill, forest, woodland and coastal walks to try and we are happy to share our favourite cafes, pubs and restaurants so you can enjoy the best Argyll has to offer as you explore. Each Thursday night between 5pm and 6pm a fresh fish, seafood, fruit and veg mobile shop parks outside the cottage so you don’t even need to travel to buy the finest fresh food. So what are you waiting for? Click through to our website, choose your dates and book now.
