Areas: Argyll, Strathclyde
Sleeps a maximum of: 6
Pricing From: £545.00 - 780.00
The Lodge is situated at the head of Loch Caolisport surrounded by a large garden. From here, not only do you have good views down Loch Caolisport, but also a vantage point from which you can observe that part of the Lochead Burn (salmon & seatrout) favoured by anglers. A recently renovated kitchen includes a refrigerator and deep freeze.
Two bedrooms (one double with own w.c. & washing facilities and one twin) on the first floor approached by a spiral stair from the entrance hall.
On the ground floor a twin bedroom, livingroom with open fire, diningroom, kitchen, utility room with washing machine and bathroom. Ellary and Castle Sween estates lie between Lochs Sween & Caolisport. This is the scenery which has made the West Coast of Scotland famous.
The shore consists of rocky outcrops with inlets and sandy beaches, islands and islets and just cries out to be explored. The structure of the rock forms a series of large or small glens and corries which lie in the same direction making walking the hills a sheer delight. Many comment that the same fascination can be experienced on a short walk, not far from the accommodation where they are staying, as from a long expedition into the hills; although I would recommend, for anyone staying more than a few days, to head out to Corrbhan Mor which is the highest point of Ellary and Castle Sween estates, and for me, the most beautiful country.
A holiday at Ellary and Castle Sween is also interesting to anglers who can obtain permits to fish the Lochead Burn (salmon and sea trout) as well as other burns on the estates and a great many trout lochs; to cyclists and mountain bikers who can explore most of the estate on the private estate roads and tracks; to photographers and golfers. Some will want to come simply to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, which is probably the main attraction of Ellary and Castle Sween.
