Ellary Estate, Argyll

No Comments, Holiday Cottage News, by Veronica.

Off the beaten track.

The west coast of Scotland offers the perfect opportunity to escape from the busy world and just relax.

If you are looking for a holiday house in a peaceful location where you can enjoy the great outdoors then Ellary Estate is the answer. The estate offers fishing, golf, walking and even sailing. There are beaches to enjoy, woods to explore and wildlife to discover including otters, seals, deer and red squirrels.

Ellary is set on a peninsular so you are never far from the sea. The whole estate has been designated a National Scenic Area and on the Loch Caolisport side some of the land is part of a site of special scientific interest (SSSI).

Within two hours of Glasgow, Ellary Estate has two stunning holiday properties, The Lodge and The Turbine House which sleep 6 and 2 people respectively. Both houses are well equipped and offer first class accommodation.  Bring the whole family or come for a romantic getaway.

Once you arrive you won’t want to leave but if you can tear yourselves away then Oban, the seafood capital of Scotland, is only an hour away with its famous Seafood Hut.

Find out more about The Lodge and The Turbine House and book your escape today.

A New Prince and a Royal Wedding

With the arrival of Prince Louis last week and the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle only weeks away, interest in the Royal Family has reached fever pitch.

The Royals love Scotland and have close connections there.

If you are thinking of taking a holiday in Scotland why not base it around two of the most famous Royal Castles, Glamis Castle and Balmoral Castle?

Royal Castle

Glamis Castle

Glamis Castle in Angus was childhood home of the much loved Queen Mother, Princess Margaret was born there and Shakespeare used it as the inspiration for Macbeth. The gardens and grounds are stunning and the castle itself is steeped in history dating back to the murder of King Malcolm II in 1034.

Royal Deeside

Balmoral Castle

Fifty miles from Glamis Castle is Balmoral Castle in Royal Deeside. Home of The Queen, Balmoral’s ballroom is the highlight of any visit to the castle with its wonderful art work, silver and china in addition to which there are glorious gardens and exhibitions in The Stables.

The drive between Glamis and Balmoral is a treat in itself. Head north through Glenshee and keep and eye out for deer and other wild life. For the return journey take the faster A90 stopping off at town and villages on your way.

Use our location map to find your perfect holiday home.

Further up the coast is Applecross which is reached via the famous Bealach na Ba or “Pass of the Cattle”. The scenery is stunning and when you get to Applecross a trip to the pub is a must. The Applecross Inn serves wonderful seafood. The specials board is full of oysters, scallops, langoustines, fish and chips and more all of which can be enjoyed with great beer and a wide selection of wines. Just make sure you book a table.

Heading towards Gairloch, Redpoint Beach is a wonderful place to spend a day. Take a picnic, a book, a football and a rounders set and you will be there all day. Snooze in the sand dunes, brave the sea for a swim, walk along the wide open beach and breath in the sea air.

If you are a golfer the nine hole courses at Lochcarron and Gairloch are definitely worth a visit. Lochcarron enjoys a lovely elevated position and Gairloch is set right next to the beach.

For garden lovers a trip to Inverewe Gardens in Poolewe is a must, The gulf stream means that palm trees and all sorts of exotic trees and plants grow in abundance in this little piece of paradise.
