This property is a welcoming semi-detached cottage in Durran, a tiny hamlet only five minutes walk from Loch Awe’s tranquil shores.

This lovely semi-detached single storey cottage provides welcoming and comfortable accommodation for a couple or a family. The owners have furnished the property to a high standard with a warming wood burning stove in the sitting room for cosy evenings in. The cottage has a large sunny garden to the front and back of the property, and patio doors open out onto a decked area with stunning views out to the Loch. Boating, fishing (permit required), walking and cycling are all ideal pastimes in this superb holiday location. The historic Kilmartin village is within driving distance and the bustling towns of Lochgilphead and Oban are also nearby.


A lovely place to get away from it all. Beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings.

Dr Bylesjo

The best cottage we've been to so far. It was cosy and clean, perfect for a family of four. In an excellent location with great views and was very quiet with lots to see around the area. Will return.
Mr Carr

One of the best cottages we have stayed in. We were made most welcome by the owners. The Cottage is located in a stunning setting with wonderful views and was so peaceful. The Cottage is very comfortable, well furnished and maintained to a very high standard. We particularly enjoyed being able to eat our meals on the veranda. We had a fantastic week staying in an excellent cottage owned and cared for by a warm, friendly family who obviously take great pride in their holiday cottage(s).
