These holiday properties are located adjacent to the owners home, beside the river, at the foot of Dunadd Fort, an historic monument associated with the Kings of Scotland since the Iron Age. Forming part of the original farmstead they have been tastefully furnished offering an ideal base to explore Argyll and Bute with its varied rugged coastline and beaches. On the edge of the Knapdale and Kilmichael forests there are miles of walks and cycle tracks as well as exploring the nearby Crinan Canal, 3 miles. For the more adventurous, there is sailing, fishing (loch and sea) and riding nearby. The village of Kilmartin with its museum, many Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments and burial cairns and the Standing Stones of Kilmartin Glen is only 2 miles away with Lochgilphead, 4 miles, giving access to Loch Fyne and Inveraray, 28 miles with its castle and jail.

Customer Reviews of Gabran, Lochgilphead - Sleeps 2-3
1st comment: Excellent cottage with beautiful scenery all around especially if you climb to the top of Dunard Fort. The cottage was very clean and had everything you would need a real home from home. Plenty of places to visit. A walk down Crinan Canal is a must, seeing all the boats going through the locks. We would definitely stay there again. April 2012.
2nd comment: Beautiful cottage. Nov 2011.
3rd comment: Gabran is in a stunning location with extremely high standard of fittings, and everything you could need in self catering accommodation. It is ideal for a get away from it all vacation with many historical sites to visit in the area. July 2011.
4th comment: For a two roomed small barn conversion, this cottage is surprisingly spacious, lots of storage space. For us and our young child it was a very pleasant surprise just how nice it was. Our son thoroughly enjoyed being next to the historic fort location, the wide open space around is good for the soul. The owners were friendly but not intrusive, and invited our son to feed the lambs, which he was very excited about! So much to do on a bike and in a canoe - we’ll be back! April 2011.
