There is a double bed and a single bed to your left and, to your right, a living area with a large south-facing picture window overlooking a small burn and a west facing window with views to Kilmartin Church.

Two weeks we stayed in Argyll and found a home in Kilmartin in Janet's Jardine chalet. We found in Argyll what we wanted to see and do and we found in the chalet all wee needed.
