Dunans Cottage is situated in the beautiful Knapdale Forest 1.9 miles from Cairnbaan within a National Scenic Area. The views are fantastic! The Cottage is off the beaten track but within a traditional farming hamlet with access via a forestry track ( see illustrated map ). Many outdoor and indoor activities are available within the area but the peace and quiet at Dunans are unique.
The Old cheese loft makes up part of the court yard at Dunadd farm. Situtated in the heart of the ancient kingdom of Dalriada, at the foot of Dunadd hill, once the seat of the first kings of Scotland and metres away from the idyllic river Add, and Moine Mhor nature reserve. Enjoy peaceful walks along the river bank, Crinan canal and beach overlooking the isles of Jura and Scarba and the infamous Corryvreachan whirl pool. Explore the ancient site of Dunadd fort and visit Kilmartin Museum.
Our canalside cottage, our home for much of the year, is good for couples, friends, solos, cyclists, walkers, people wanting to explore Argyll and the West Coast, and for families. The cottage has a real country feel, the garden is enclosed and the house is dog-friendly; an excellent restaurant and bar, a mere 150 metres away. You can while away the days simply watching the world go by on the canal or you can get out and about to enjoy the beauty of Argyll and Scotland's rugged west coast.
