The cottage dates back to the 1800's where it was a shepherds cottage. We have still maintained the wooden walls and the huge open fire. The cottage is well equipped to provide 'Home from Home' and is an excellent base to explore from. We are a short drive from the coast and well positioned between the ports to go and explore the Islands. The estate hire out canoes, rowing boats and bicycles. We also can arrange wild brown trout fishing in the hill lochs and course fishing on Loch Ederline. The local area is steeped in history and archaeological sites. There are many local attractions and activities including horse riding, sea trips, museums, jails ,golf courses, mountain biking,walking and bird watching to name just a few....The cottage dates back to the 1800's where it was a shepherds cottage.
