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.
We live in a lovely bungalow in a quiet area with superb views over the Crinan Canal and Loch Fyne. If you are planning to work locally short term or to visit to appreciate the beautiful West Coast of Scotland, this is a good central spot. The start of the Kintyre Way is 10 miles South and the historical archaeological site of Kilmartin is 10 miles North. We are also an ideal stop over to and from the Islay Ferry Terminal which is a 30 minute drive South.
