Yealand House - Crinan, Nr Lochgilphead, Argyll and Bute, Scotland - Sleeps 6

Yealand House

Yealand House sleeps six guests in three bedrooms, (two are en-suite) and affords a stunning hillside position with fantastic sea views over Crinan Harbour and beyond to the isles of Jura, Scarba, the Gulf of Corryvreckan and Mull in the distance.

Comfortable and welcoming, Yealand House is a much loved family home offering a relaxed atmosphere with a mix of country-style and antique furnishings. The properties main feature is the large sitting room, which offers stunning sea views. Enhanced by the double height ceiling, many windows and a minstrels’ gallery this room is light and airy whilst offering a cosy environment on chilly nights with a wood burning stove and comfortable seating. During the summer months, the deck balcony off the sitting room provides the perfect place for admiring the wonderful sunsets and boats bobbing on the water as you enjoy a glass of wine. The deck also offers direct access to the attractive garden where you can wander down the woodland path to the pretty harbour where yachts are moored.

Crinan Basin is a small friendly village in a tranquil position with its historic canal just a short walk from Yealand House. Here you can watch the yachts sail in and out, stroll along the waters edge or canal paths, enjoy fantastic freshly caught Scottish seafood at the Crinan Hotel or home-made cakes and shortbread at the hotel coffee shop or simply sit back, relax and unwind in this picturesque location.

If you can tear yourself away from this beautiful setting, Yealand House is ideally placed for exploring Argyll and its timeless magic. Visit the prehistoric remains in Kilmartin Glen; the Knapdale Forest nature reserve with Britain’s only beaver colony (five miles away); Oban, a vibrant town with plenty of shops and the 'gateway to the isles' where you can take a ferry to Iona, the Inner Hebrides and Mull. Travel south to the Mull of Kintyre for beautiful deserted sandy beaches or visit the islands of Arran, Colonsay, Gigha, Jura and Isaly.

Famed for its breathtaking scenery and dramatic history, the area offers a wealth of activities and attractions providing great days out. It is also a haven for wildlife with its many birds and frequent local visitors including sea otters, golden eagles, seals, red squirrels, and deer. You can charter a boat from Crinan Harbour (below the house), and set off for a day’s island hopping, wildlife watching (you may be lucky enough to spot whales, porpoise or eagles!), sea fishing or experience the famous Gulf of Corrievreckan, the world's third largest whirlpool and a spectacular sight.
