Crosple Cottage sleeps two and sits in a tranquil position on a private estate which extends to some 1000 acres including the owner's working hill farm. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard, this wonderful retreat provides a warm Scottish welcome and all the right ingredients for a romantic break.
Nestling amongst rolling countryside with sweeping views over to Loch Melfort; Crosple Cottage offers all the ingredients for a memorable romantic getaway - spectacular views, peace and quiet, no nearby neighbours and just wildlife to keep you company. With rolling green countryside, beaches to comb and mountainous and loch scenery for romantic walks, you would be hard pushed to find a more romantic setting!
During the warmer months, open the French doors and enjoy alfresco dining on the sunny terraced patio and during the winter, light the wood burner for a cosy night in front of the fire whilst watching a good movie. Alternatively, enjoy a meal out at the “Shower of Herring”, a popular restaurant and enjoyable walk from the cottage.
A haven for wildlife, there are numerous tracks and trails, allowing you to explore the shoreline, woodland and hills. Complementary trout fishing is available to guests staying at the cottage with two lochs on the estate offering the facility. There are also twelve other lochs in the surrounding area to choose from (with the use of a permit which can be purchased locally).
There are an abundance of other outdoor activities in this fantastic outdoor playground. For golfers, enjoy a game at Machrihanish Golf Club, one of the finest links courses in Great Britain (within driving distance being just over an hour away), or one of the two closer courses in Oban and on Seil Island (either course is just half an hour by car). Experience the excitement of galloping a horse along wide empty beaches, or trekking mid Argyll's hills.
Take a boat trip through the Corryvreckan whirlpool (the world's third largest!) where you may catch a glimpse of grey seal, red deer or even golden eagles soaring up above; or catch the ferry from Oban and visit the Isles of Mull, Iona, Staffa and Fingal's Cave for a day trip.
