What to do

We are luckly in that the area is famous for its gardens including Crarae Gardens, it has great forest walks, riding, fishing and bird watching.
Only 14 miles down the road is Inveraray with its castle and jail, with other local attractions including the Auchindrain Folk museum.
Also in easy travelling distance are the Crinan Canel and the prehistoric Kilmartin and for the day damp days there is Oban and the tunnels of the Cruachan hydro-electric scheme.
Then further to the north are Fort William and Glencoe.
