About the property

One bedroom, beautiful traditional cottage

Cnocachanach Cottage is a recently refurbished traditional stone cottage situated in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty (Knapdale) on the west coast of Scotland. It's located within the beautiful Ardpatrick Estate, with numerous walks starting right at the front door. Since it sits on a single-track no through-road, there's almost no traffic around making it an incredibly peaceful location. The village of Tarbert (just North of Kintyre), where there are shops, good restaurants, art galleries and sailing facilities, is just 15km away. The award-winning Kilberry Inn is just 10 minutes drive away.

Finished to a high standard, Cnocachanach Cottage provides one double bedroom (with en-suite) and an open-plan kitchen and living area with a wood burning stove.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Cnocachanach for Christmas . The cottage was warm and comfortable even in the weather we experienced gales sleet and hailstones. There are lovely walks from the cottage along the shore

We also visited Inveraray 18th century jail which is well worth a visit,and Kilmartin glen with its stone age burial mounds and standing stones. Even in December just before Christmas we found museums and cafes open

The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable in a peaceful location about 20mins from Tarbert were there are some shops . A delightful place to stay even in winter.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

I'm writing this review as we sadly return home from a wonderful weeks stay in this lovely cottage in a stunning location. We were wanting a week away from it all and we couldn't have chosen a more amazing place. The cottage is quaint, cosy and comfortable, with all that you could need. The cottage is surrounded by wildlife; deer (which we watched from the kitchen window most mornings/evenings), red squirrels, badgers, numerous birds and seals a plenty all along the coast. There is so much to see and do if you love to be outdoors. If not, the cottage is still a perfect getaway if you just want to relax in a beautiful location. Highly recommended.

Just lovely

  • 4 of 5

This is a fabulous wee cottage in an idyllic situation.

The cottage is clean and very comfortable, it has everything that you need to help you to have a great holiday.

There is so much to see in the area and there is a lovely walk from the cottage that has stunning views over the water. There are lots of places to visit and the highlight of our holiday was a trip over to the beautiful Isle of Gigha. If you like beautiful scenery, peace and quiet and don't have the need to get to lots of shops this is the cottage for you

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

Small cosey cottage ideal for a little getaway. Kitchen fully equipped to make dinners at home. Comfy double bed, we had great sleeps due to the darkness and tranquility of the place. Washing machine and dryer if you get drenched. Local deserted beaches. We managed 8 mins in the sea in Feb!

Ordinance survey maps so you can exercise your right to roam in the quiet outdoors.

Would advise going to tarbert and picking up some fresh seafood, there is a fish guy who operates from his garden just up past the tourist office on the left. We got 4 meals worth of scallops/langoustines/kippers/sea bass for 14 quid. Good walk up from the castle as well.

We will be back

Stunning, quiet .loved it.

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with this place in the first few minutes we strolled down the lane. I am passionate about Scotland to start with, but some places really stand out, this was one of them. I stood down the lane about 100yds from cottage and something happened that i have never experienced before , i stood still and there was total 100% silence , nothing not even a bird call , dog ,engine, wind , total total silence. I an 60 this year and have never in my life had this experience, strange at first but wonderful.
