South Lodge (ref UKC1708) is a real ‘home from home’, nestled into the side of the woods, in an elevated position, looking out over to the main estate house, with the loch and hills beyond.

It is a stunning, elegant property for two, with an open plan balcony bedroom and four-poster super kingsize bed. There is a large porch through the front door and a smaller porch to the back of the property off the living room leading to the garden, which was the old playground. Many original features still remain, including the original floor with the old badminton lines!

Guests are welcome to wander and explore the estate to their heart’s delight in this ever changing landscape of outstanding natural beauty. History lovers will be enthralled with the historical sites on the estate, with two ancient chapels and a castle waiting to be explored, and only a short distance away are archaeological sites, with Kilmartin Glen being the centre.

For gentler pursuits there are numerous forest trails and the Crinan Canal tow paths are ideal for walking and cycling. The isles of Islay, Gigha and Arran are easily reached by a short ferry crossing, and the Kintyre Peninsula offers white sandy beaches and some of the best golf courses in Scotland.

    "A lovely, comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a very peaceful setting. Local amenities are what you would expect in rural Argyll"
    Paula – 14 Jul 2019
    "The School House was very well equipped everything you could possibly need immaculately tidy and clean. Ideally situated in a quiet village but not too far off the beaten track, very peaceful and tranquil. Willa and co. were there if needed and made sure we were happy with everything. We would certainly recommend The School House to family and friends."

    "Extremely well equipped and comfortable cottage in a beautiful area."
