Description

Dunadd Farm Cottages are situated at the foot of Dunadd Hill, the site of an Iron Age fort which was the capital of the ancient Scottish kingdom of Dalriada. Dunadd is a small working livestock farm with cattle, sheep and a few backyard hens.

Comgall is one of three converted farm buildings adjacent to the farmhouse and is named after a kinsman of Fergus Mhor, the first King of Dalriada. Comgall is conveniently all on one level and has been designed to offer access to wheelchair users. It offers a welcoming home to return to after a day’s exploring the delights of mid-Argyll. Reflecting its original use as a barn, it has a light, airy, high ceiling, open-plan living space with kitchen and dining area, and is decorated in a relaxed, typical country cottage style. Two patio doors lead out onto the garden enjoying pretty countryside views of the farm fields and the River Add beyond. Cosily heated, it is well-equipped for self-catering. Thereis a spacious double bedroom with en-suite facilities, and a twin bedroom, served by a separate bathroom. Both also enjoy pretty views onto the surrounding countryside.

Dunadd is located in Kilmartin Glen, an area steeped in Neolithic and Bronze Age history with an impressive offering of pre-historic sites, including castles, standing stones, burial cairns, hill forts and Kilmartin Museum. Almost next door is the Moine Mhor, a lowland raised bog of international importance, a rugged and beautiful landscape that is the wild heartland of Kilmartin Glen. There are a couple of hotels with bars close by, the nearest at the village of Kilmichael Glassary, just 1½ miles from Dunadd and another to the north west, in the canal-side hamlet of Cairnbaan, approximately 3 miles distant, both serving food and popular with locals and tourists alike. The Kilmartin Glen footpath leads past Dunadd to Kilmartin, 4 miles away, passing many of the monuments as it meanders through the landscape, eventually leading to the museum and the village of Kilmartin where there is a coffee/gift shop and a hotel with bar and restaurant.

In the opposite direction, the path leads to Cairnbaan and the Crinan Canal, one of the most beautiful waterways in Britain passing through 9 miles of wonderful scenery between Ardrishaig and Crinan. Crinan harbour is 6 miles away through an attractive winding single track road or a walk/cycle along the canal towpath. Boats can be chartered from Crinan harbour and there are trips around the islands where it is possible to see whales, porpoise, seals, many sea birds including golden and white-tailed eagles, and the spectacular Corryvreckan Whirlpools. Just a short 5 mile drive takes you to the local country town of Lochgilphead, which has a variety of specialist shops, cafés and restaurants, a swimming pool, golf course and sports centre. Further afield but offering a great day out are the towns of Oban, the Gateway to the Isles to the north, Inveraray, the capital of Argyll, to the east and Campbeltown to the far south on the Kintyre Peninsula. Outdoor activities include horse riding, sailing, walking, fishing, canoeing and riding all available locally. Wildlife includes many woodland birds and birds of prey, beavers, red squirrels, red and roe deer, seals, otters and pine martens. Fresh seafood abounds in the many delightful eating places scattered around the area, where local produce proudly served and deliciously presented.
Comgall can be booked together with Gabran (UK33160) and The Old Cheese Loft (UK33163) to accommodate up to 9 guests.

About the local area

As you travel through Argyll, highland Scotland merges with the Scottish lowlands. In the north of the region is the bustling fishing port of Oban. Surrounded by the sweeping mountains of Lorn this is the ideal base from which to tour the Highlands to the north.

The Isle of Mull is only a short ferry trip away. Mull's capital, Tobermory, is instantly recognised by its famous brightly painted buildings. The island has a fascinating history being once home to the Chief of the Clan MacLean and site of the clan's ancient Duart Castle which has spectacular views from its battlements.

South along the coast are the unspoilt glens and bays of Mid-Argyll and Kintyre and the islands of Islay and Jura which are easily reached by ferry. Visit the whitwashed houses of Inveraray and the turreted Inveraray Castle, home to the Dukes of Argyll. Campbelltown in Kintyre was the scene of Viking repulsions at Saddell Abbey and has some lovely beaches nearby.

The captivating Isle of Bute lies at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, a place of tranquil relaxation with sheltered coves and sandy bays. Ideal for leisurely hiking and easy-going cycling on quiet back roads. Maybe take in the grandeur of Rothesay Castle or Mount Stuart - the House and gardens of the Marquess of Bute.
