Kinlochlaich Garden Self Catering
Kinlochlaich Garden Self Catering offers accommodation in the spectacular coastal landscape of Argyll in the West Highlands of Scotland. Alasdair and Fiona live nearby and are happy to welcome you. They run 2 farms in the village, and appreciate all that our area has to offer you for your holiday here!
The cottages are set in the gardens of Kinlochlaich, with a rare octagonal Walled Garden, Spring Garden, Bluebell Woodland Walk, extensive vegetable gardens and some formal gardens within the wall. Part of it is the Garden Plant Nursery Centre – which specialises in just plants and lots of them! A plant lovers paradise.
We are close to the sea, and the famous Castle Stalker, with the hills behind us, facing south- south west, catching the sun, and looking across to the Morven Hills.
We have a Tennis Court, Hut with Table Tennis, and plenty of garden to sit and relax in. There are also swings, and various garden toys that can be used at your own risk.
Each Cottage is fully equipped with everything you might need. Laich Cottage and the Old Coach House have a wood burning stoves, with logs provided. Laich Cottage sits in its own sunny, private garden.
Appin is ideally situated between Oban and Fort William. From here, you can explore our amazing scenery by bike, foot or car. We have the Sustrans bike track within 5 minutes, and many local walks and cycle rides can be enjoyed from the Cottages.
We are close to the picturesque village of Port Appin, where the passenger ferry goes to Lismore, and to the famous Castle Stalker nestled in Loch Laich, which is a great place to catch the sunsets over the Morven Hills.
Exploring further afield you can take the ferry from Oban, and visit Staffa. Going north you are ideally situated to explore Glencoe with its eye catching mountains, the Golden Sands of Morar and many other places accessible on daytrips.
We are sorry we are unable to take pets. We are a non-smoking property. We do weekly lets in the main season, and a minimum of 2 nights out with this.
“This a a fabulous cottage in a wonderful setting. There is everything you could possibly need from towels and linen to salt and pepper and even weighing scales for baking. Unfortunately, Fiona and Alistair couldn’t control the weather, but we had great fun baking scones and playing with the many board games on a rainy day. As soon as the rain stops, there are great walks all around. There’s a tennis court with equipment available for family tournaments and many swings and play equipment around for younger guests,including a magical tree house. We live in a city, so my teenagers had a great time watching sheep shearing and feeding the animals and we felt very welcome. It’s also a horticulturalists dream with a huge variety of local species, as well as some of the more exotic. There are a few restaurants and shops within walking distance, but Kinlochlaich is also well positioned between Oban and Fort William for touring farther afield for the day.” Guests July 16
