The
Experience

Feel the pull of the lochs and hills on Scotland’s west coast – come in spring for the bluebells or anytime for the rich wildlife. Less than a mile from the village of Ardfern with its local shop and pub stands this traditional croft and well-planned extension; 300 metres up a steep track and set in its own grounds, it has timeless, mesmerising views over Loch Craignish. It’s a functional, homey, well-equipped hideaway; solar panels heat the water and an air-source heat pump provides underfloor heating. Roomy too, with a farmhouse kitchen with a long table and log stove, a cosy sitting room with open fire, a conservatory dining area and sun porch, plus the surrounding grounds. Bedrooms are split between floors: two downstairs, two up, all comfortably furnished with neutral decor and white linen. None are en suite, but there are three shower rooms, one with a bath. Out back there’s also a separate bothy with a sofabed, bunks, table tennis, a piano and plenty of space for family fun or workshops. Masses to do nearby: walk, ride, sail, visit castles and ancient sites, gardens, beaches and islands, or just dream away the days gazing out over the loch…

Reviews

Lerigoligan is a rare thing: a design-conscious, warm and luxurious house which doesn't have any pretensions. We loved the comfort, space and evident pleasure taken in beautiful things, whether views, artwork, or woollen blankets. Wintry walks followed by roaring fires and much gazing at the ever-changing view were the order of the day for our family of 5 (and welcomed dog - she loved the heated floors!). And a piano for our musical family: it was fabulous!

Jeannie, East linton

Lerigoligan met all our expectations. Even in cold snowy weather the house was lovely, warm and cosy. The space of the lounge, kitchen diner, the light and superb views from the ‘sitooterie’ , and the choice of bathrooms for our large family was very much appreciated. We came for relaxing, family fun time and were very happy together. We hope to return. It’s a beautiful, relaxing, amazing find...

Stephen, Dunoon

A very good location for exploring the region. Beautiful views from the house which is very well equipped and comfortable. The local shop has very good local vegetables and other locally grown produce. Don't miss the Kilmartin museum and the free Wednesday guided tour. We loved our time staying in this beautiful home.

Kim, Fremantle

Lovely cottage in a great setting. Situated in Ardfern, it's easy to walk into the village or for many walks nearby. The cottage was warm and well furnished with everything needed for a holiday stay. Ideal for a family and enough space for our teenagers to spread out. Really enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again.

Joanna, Stirling

Lerigoligan is even better than the pictures - its a beautiful cottage and I could have spent the week sitting in the sunroom looking at the ever changing views of the sea loch. It's all very comfortable, warm and spacious, with an elegant simplicity. The location is magical, perched up high, really quiet, with lovely walks from the door. There is so much to do in the area it makes a great base for a winter holiday - many small islands to explore, prehistoric sites, gardens, attractions around Oban, plus great places to eat. We're planning our next visit.

Aine, Cockermouth

It was onderful to be back in Lerigoligan ... one of our favourite places in Scotland. Waking up to the stunning view from our bedroom is special. The house is so warm and comfortable with plenty of space for us all. The peaceful surroundings and the natural daylight everywhere within the house makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. We had a number of lovely walks interspersed with just the right amount of lazing about and visits to the Crafty Kitchen.
