The cottage has everything you'd need and is right on the canal path, perfect for strolls in either direction, or just sitting and watching the yachts negotiate the locks. Great walks in all 4 directions directly from the cottage, plus we got an amazing sighting...More

About the neighbourhood

The canal itself is picturesque and beautifully landscaped, and provides plenty of interest with the daytime passage of boats to and fro.Cairnbaan is very conveniently located within 3 miles of the shopping and leisure facilities of the small town of Lochgilphead, and within 2 hours' drive of Glasgow. Lochgilphead is the main centre for mid-Argyll and its amenities include shops, schools, businesses, sports facilities, a swimming pool, a hospital and council offices. Cairnbaan is also situated approximately 30 miles south of Oban - known as the Gateway to the Isles.
Getting around
During its course from Ardrishaig northwards to Crinan Loch, the Crinan canal passes through some of Argyll's most outstanding countryside, and its 15 locks and 7 swing bridges provide added interest for visitors. For the sporting guest, golf is available at the nearby Lochgilphead Golf Club.

The excellent fishing includes facilities for sea angling and salmon fishing. Many attractive hill forest walks are to be found in the vicinity of the hotel and walking or cycling along the Crinan Canal is a popular pursuit.
