These holiday properties are beside the owner’s home in the middle of Kilmartin Glen in the heart of Mid Argyll, an area of beautiful scenery, steeped in history and rich in wildlife. The Glen is one of the most important prehistoric sites on the Scottish mainland, and there are a wealth of standing stones, stone circles, cairns and rock carvings to explore, dating from the Neolithic and early Bronze Age, with the remains of Dunadd Fort, home of the ancient kings of Scotland, just four miles away. This is an ideal base to explore the varied coastline of Argyll and Bute and discover its unspoilt beaches, or to walk or cycle along miles of forest tracks looking out for birds and wildlife. 8 miles north of Lochgilphead, and 30 miles south of the busy ferry port of Oban, with easy access to ferries to Islay, Jura, Arran, Gigha, Mull and Iona. Explore the Mull of Kintyre, walk along the banks of the Crinan Canal, or take a cruise to see the famous Corryvreckan whirlpool. Try sailing, fishing or riding or explore some of the famous gardens and castles nearby. All three properties (refs 10960, 12437 and 25752) have been completely renovated and offer a comfortable base for a relaxing holiday. Shop and pub one mile.

Customer Reviews of The Factor's House, Kilmartin Glen - Sleeps 8-10

1st comment: This is probably one of the loveliest houses for hire in the West of Scotland. We stayed here for Christmas - a 16ft beautifully decorated tree was the first thing we saw in the magnificent hallway. We weren’t surprised to discover that people have chosen this venue to get married in. It a lovely place - every detail has been carefully thought out. The area itself is also beautiful. There are ancient standing stones all around, and sea lochs and mountains nearby. We are not alone in loving this house - everyone in the visitors book gave it a glowing review too. Dec 2011.

2nd comment: Fantastic property, beautiful and really spacious will definitely be returning. Oct 2011.

3rd comment: Fantastic, made us feel really grand, excellent provision for children - books, DVDs, games, lego etc. Owners really pleasant and helpful. May 2011.
