Ellary Estate lies between Lochs Sween & Caolisport. This is the scenery which has made the West Coast of Scotland famous. The shore consists of rocky outcrops with inlets and sandy beaches, islands and islets and just cries out to be explored. The structure of the rock forms a series of large or small glens and corries which lie in the same direction making walking the hills a shear delight. Many comment that the same fascination can be...

Lochead Cottage is a wonderful and cosy place to be. It was our fifth stay at Ellary and it is always worth to go there all the way from Germany! :-)

Management response:

Thanks Barbara, glad you enjoyed your stay.

Large enclosed garden which was excellent for dogs. The country estate has walking paths that you can walk for miles if you want to. We saw deer, seals and a sea otter. You can actually walk all day and not bump into anyone if you want to. The cottage was well equipped and cosy, would definitely return.

We visited the cottage as a party of six. The cottage is situated on a beautiful estate and this provides a wonderful quiet setting with freedom to walk,cycle, fish and kayak we felt very lucky to be there. Unfortunately the cottage itself was disappointing, the house keeping was of a very low standard. The cottage was dirty throughout it felt...

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time on the estate, but are sad to hear about the housekeeping issues you encountered. All of our cottages are checked and cleaned to a very high standard before and after every single customer, but we are only human and sometimes things may be overlooked. Had you made us aware of...

About the neighbourhood
The distance from Glasgow to Ellary is about 100 miles and it will take around two and a half hours. Although the journey can be accomplished faster than this, it is a beautiful drive and well worth the time. Take the M8 through Glasgow and cross the Clyde on the Erskine Bridge. This takes you straight on to the A82 wich at that point is a fast dual carriageway which takes you past the suburbs of Glasgow.
Immediately when you leave the dual carriageway you are suddenly in the Highlands. What were the promise of some mountains in the distance, are suddenly all around you. Look across the water at the steep steep sides of Ben Lomond, and soak up the views of Ben Lui, Ben Vorlich and many others. You are in the heart of 'Ben' country.
Getting around
There is no public transport here, so a car is necessary. We are not far from Tarbert (about 30 minutes), and the ferries to the islands. Similarly, Inverary is about 50 minutes away, and Oban just over an hour.
