Located within the village, the grocery, post office and pubs are within 2 minutes walk. Lochgoilhead is a hidden gem in the heart of the Argyll Forest.When you tire of climbing, fishing, boating, sight-seeing and walking the endless forest trails, relax in front of a real fire and make use of the free WiFi or play one of our many board games. If you prefer to go out, there are two bars and a good restaurant within walking distance. Minimum stay is 4 nights over a weekend or 3 nights midweek. During peak periods, the minimum stay is 7 nights. Alongside this information, you will see a 'Response Rate' which is supposed to indicate the percentage of timely responses to enquiries. Unfortunately this is 100% unreliable. We respond, usually within an hour or two to all enquiries. More
