Argyll & Bute

High in Argyll on Scotland's west coast, a modern eco-friendly cottage hugged by trees, wildlife. Glorious panoramas from a hilltop BBQ


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


Discover a ‘fairy knoll’, tree-hugged and silent, and a modern timber eco cottage designed by caring Leonie for outdoorsy families. What a setting. The sun rises over Ben Cruachan, sets over the Morven Hills, glints off Loch Etive โ€“ spiral up to the hilltop barbecue for the best panoramas. On this sprawling hill farm you may be visited by deer, red squirrels, hen harriers, Leonie’s horse… but few humans, although the village is only two miles. You enter the cottage on the upper level: an airy open-plan living space of earthy browns, natural timbers, a vaulted ceiling, comfy sofas by a wood-burner; underfloor heating keeps it toasty. Dine at a refectory table with a side-dish of green views; order homemade meals from a local cook. One bedroom is up, the others down: simple, subtle, snug, with crisp white linen, natural pine, a touch of luxury in the tiny sauna… and doors out to a sheltered wooden deck. Green credentials are impeccable (solar panels, earth bricks, hemp insulation) and the house blends quietly into this fabulous landscape of heather hills, soaring mountains and Oban, gateway to the Hebrides.
