Description

Keil Farmhouse is a charming detached cottage situated on the spectacular Argyllshire coast, just south of Duror village.  Located within a working farm setting you can watch and enjoy the comings and goings of everyday farm life.  The farm has a variety of livestock including wonderful gentle llamas.   The farmhouse dates back to the 1930's and offers comfortable self catering accommodation for a family of five. All the rooms have a traditional wood panel lining and upstairs the ceilings are coombed.  The large open plan country style kitchen/dining area is a great family space, with the Rayburn cooker providing a real warm heart to the room.  The sitting room is comfy and cosy with a wood burning stove.  The fully enclosed garden has outdoor furniture, mature planting and views out to Loch Linnhe and islands beyond.  The farm has two miles of shore front for you to explore.  The shingle beach is only a very short walk from the farmhouse and provides an abundance of opportunities for fishing, bird watching, beach combing or just watching the sun setting over the Morven Hills.  You can launch a canoe or small dinghy from the beach or if you have a larger boat a slipway is available for a small fee at Linnhe Marina, only a short drive away, where boats can also be hired.  Otters, seals, porpoises, buzzards, golden and sea eagles, and barn owls can be seen from the farm.

About the local area

Fort William and the Lochaber area has to be the outdoor capital of the UK due to the its location at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest peak. The walking around this area is fabulous. From the southern mecca of Glen Coe to the wilder and less visited northern area of Knoydart there are many diverse landscapes to enjoy with equally amazing views over lochs and sea.

Fort William its self has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The High Street has a range of shops, and outdoor enthusiasts are especially well catered for by large shopping outlets. There are also a wide range of eating and drinking opportunities in Fort William, including the prize winning Crannog Seafood Restaurant. For many, the highlight will be a visit to the Grog and Gruel, on the High Street!

Around Fort William there are outdoor activities in plenty, including walking and climbing, cycling and mountain biking, riding and trekking, golf, angling and a range of water-sports. East of the town The Ben Nevis Range is a year round sporting destination. It also offers a spectacular gondola ride up the side of Aonoch Mor with its accessible pathways and exhilarating views over the west Highlands.

For a more relaxing adventure visit the Ardnamurchan peninsula. It is here you can relax in some peaceful ancient oak woodlands that date back to the last ice age, over 12,000 years ago! This area is a haven for rare wildlife such as the chequered skipper butterfly and the views out to the small isles of Rum, Eigg and Muck are stunning.

But be sure that where ever you go you will never tire of the magnificent, ever changing views of Ben Nevis that makes this area so popular.

Peaceful location with views to Loch Linnhe


The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Kiel Farmhouse is a great place to stay and get away from the busy south. We had a great time walking and sightseeing. We really enjoyed our walks on the shore of Loch Linnhe just a few yards from the front door.
