Ellary Estate Cottages, Lochgilphead, Argyll, Bute & The Islands (Sleeps 1-8)

Ellary Estate offers self-catering holiday accommodation in a peaceful location, literally a stone's throw from the water. With properties sleeping 2-8 (and some with gates straight out on to the beach), there's something for everyone!

Each property is detached and sits in its own grounds, allowing you to make the most of the tranquillity of the estate. Wildlife is abundant, with regular sightings of eagles, otters, red squirrels and deer amongst other things (often from the comfort of your cottage!).

The estate is family-run, with no through road, so you can expect a warm welcome - and there is always somebody on-hand to point you in the right direction for walks.

All of the properties are well-maintained and well-equipped. All but one have open fires and all have Wi-Fi, DVD players and washing machines (except Lochead Chalets). Properties sleep 2-8 and can be booked individually, or next to each other for multiple generations/families.

Dogs (and other pets) are very welcome and will enjoy the freedom that comes with enclosed gardens, and the miles of paths and coastline to explore.

Sitting in a secluded position, Ellary offers 15,000 acres for you and your four-legged friend to explore - all out of the way of any main roads. There is an old abandoned village at the tip of the peninsula, or miles of hills, ancient oak woodlands, or coastline which all make a great day's walk. As a guest at Ellary, you are welcome to go anywhere on the estate, and we do not insist on dogs on leads unless you are in sight of livestock.

We are around 15 miles to the nearest town, which has a supermarket along with various restaurants etc. Various ferries are within easy reach, making us an ideal base for daytrips.

You are welcome to bring a boat or kayaks if you have them and make use of the private harbour and launching points - if you're lucky, the otters might even join you for a spot of lunch on one of the many small islands the coastline offers!

There is also a practice golf course at Ellary which guests are welcome to use free of charge - you pop in to the office and borrow the clubs to save you bringing some. Fishing is available on the estate too, with permits being available for the hill lochs & burn at £20 per rod, per week.
