This property is a beautifully and carefully renovated character 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.


Beautiful cottage in remote location
This cottage is lovely: nice and spacious for our family of four, spotlessly clean, good quality fixtures and fittings with lots of equipment for home cooking if required. The photos do not do it justice! The real fire was also a bonus on cool evenings, especially with the kids! We saw an abundance of wild birds and red squirrels on the decking. The woods and burn at the back of the house provided endless entertainment for the kids. The owners live on site and were extremely friendly and helpful when required. It's worth noting that it is a bit of a treck to get anywhere (single track road for 20-30 minutes in either direction to a main road) but that makes it all the more appealing as it is lovely and quiet. Despite the rain, we explored lots of the west coast. The Crinan trail was a pleasant surprise, giving the most amazing views over the Sound of Jura. And Oban and Inveraray are worth a visit. I'd definitely recommend this cottage to families or couples who enjoy the outdoors.

Nice and quiet
Lovely cottage in pretty much the middle of no where. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Cottage is nice and small yet plenty of room for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids, one 3 years other 7 months). Nice fully equipped kitchen and living space with a lovely log burning fire. Nice big master bedroom with loads of room and a big twin room perfect size for 2 kids. Garden is nice and big and perfect for 2 kids to run around in. In the evenings it catches the setting sun and is a lovely sun trap on the decking. Would highly recommend and love to stay there again, so peaceful and quiet.

Secluded home from home
Set by the shore of Loch Awe this cottage is tucked away just off the single track road, it's about 30 minutes drive to Lochgilphead but well worth it. The cottage has a lovely large lounge area that commands a large corner sofa & dining table with french doors onto a decking area with table & chairs perfect for an evening meal looking out over the loch. The owner came and introduced herself shortly after our arrival and explained that the cottage was on a private water system, this means that even with filtering the water sometimes looks slightly brown due to peat, but she provides 2 bottles of spring water & a welcome basket of shortbread goodies & a vase of flowers. The cottage is well stocked with DVDs, jigsaws, books & games suitable for families and a number of information leaflets. The kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials. we had dinner in the cottage on a couple of occasions and had no problems with having the utensils we needed, the kitchen also boasts a dishwasher & washer. This is a great base for exploring from if you don't mind a drive around we visited, Isle of Bute, Arron, Mull of Kintyre, Oban and had a boat trip out to the Corryvreckan whirlpool - trips from Ardfern where there is a post office/general store which is the closet shop to the cottage.

Cosy and warm Cottage -perfect accommodation for 4 people
A very warm and comfortable cottage and had everything we needed. We have had a fantastic Christmas which included lots of walks. Thank you for making everything enjoyable!

It was well equipped and off the beaten track so it was quiet.
