Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Dunans Cottage is situated in the beautiful Knapdale Forest 1.9 miles from Cairnbaan within a National Scenic Area. The views are fantastic! The Cottage is off the beaten track but within a traditional farming hamlet with access via a forestry track ( see illustrated map ).
Many outdoor and indoor activities are available within the area but the peace and quiet at Dunans are unique.

The space
The cottage is small and cosy (6m x 4m, not including porch and bathroom), open plan studio style with a log burning stove. We will provide a log basket of firewood, and more can be bought on request. There is also electric heating. A small separate bathroom contains W.C., wash basin and shower. The kitchen area is well equipped and fitted with cooker, sink, a small fridge with a freezer compartment, washing machine and micro wave.

Guest access
You can walk out the cottage door and have access to a number of forestry tracks either by foot or bicycle . One track heads south and gives great views over Loch Sween, Tayvallich and the Paps of Jura and in the other direction a 15 minute walk takes you to the triangulation point with a view north, to the Isle of Mull. Otherwise you could just sit in the cottage garden and enjoy the peace.

Other things to note
The cottage is one of three dwellings in a secluded situation and access is via a forest track. The Road is maintained by the forestry commission but does have the odd pothole (what road doesn't these days!) but taken with care it is not a problem.
The cottage has no wifi or television but there is a radio, dvd and cd player.

Location

Cairnbaan, Scotland, United Kingdom

We live in mid Argyll and within that area there are many places worth a visit depending on your interest. Crinan(6 miles), is at the west end of the famous Crinan canal and has an hotel and coffee shop. From here it is possible to take a boat trip to the Corryvrecken whirlpool between the Isles of Jura and Scarba where you often can watch sea eagles. Crinan ferry beach is great for walking at low tide.
Kilmartin (8 miles) is surrounded by archaeological sites(standing stones, stone circles and cairns) and the award winning museum and café are well worth a visit.
The road to Tayvallich (11 miles) takes you along the shore of Caol Scotnish and past the ruined crofting community of Arichonan. Tayvallich village overlooks a bay with many boats. There is a pub and a shop.
Passing through Tayvallich you can visit Taynish nature reserve, a beautiful area of ancient old oak forest and then on to the end of the peninsular and look straight across the water at the Isle of Jura.

We have lived here for 40 years, our children have grown up here with the hills as their playground, now we enjoy watching our grandchildren explore the surrounding area. We spend our leisure time growing vegetables and walking the dogs.
During your stay
We will leave a visitor's pack in the cottage with leaflets describing the various points of interest in the area but we will also be available in case you have any queries or problems.
