The
Experience

A remote and rugged setting with much comfort indoors. Stephanie and Adrian are a creative, well-travelled pair and their house is packed with warmth and interest, including local art for sale. Be welcomed by home cooking, sink into the views from the sun lounge, sleep soundly in luxurious, very quiet bedrooms. Breakfasts with a delicious twist will set you up for a wonderful day walking in the footsteps of the first Scots through this fascinating history-steeped landscape. Explore the beach, sea loch and woods, discover ‘Britain’s most beautiful short cut by sea’ and from there sail to the Corryvreckan.

Reviews

Winterton is a truly special place, comfortable, relaxed and cosy with lovely modern bedrooms. Stephanie and Adrian are wonderful hosts and couldn't be more helpful. The locally sourced breakfasts are delicious and Adrian is more than happy to pass on his knowledge of the local area, it's history and walks. We would recommend Winterton unreservedly and intend to visit again ourselves when time allows

  • On our doorstep is SEA LOCH CRINAN where you can while away the hours beach combing along miles of sand when the tide is out, looking out towards the isles of JURA, SCARBA and MULL and splashing through shallow pools.
  • Not far from Winterton is MOINE MHOR nature reserve (one of Britain's finest peat-bog habitats for all kinds of flora and fauna). Walk or cycle along the famous CRINAN CANAL between Crinan and Ardrishaig - 14km in total.
