More information about Achaglachgach Stables

Property information

On the shores of West Loch Tarbert, Achaglachgach is a beautifully designed, ecologically sensitive, conversion of a grand stone stables and barn, with an extraordinary 50ft long, high-ceilinged room for living and entertaining. Huge windows and sliding doors show wonderful views across the loch and into the beech wood and gardens beyond. In addition, Achaglachgach is an eco-home, warm all year round thanks to geothermal underfloor heating on slate and wood floors; solar panels and double glazing. In the evenings, there is a wood-burning stove for added appeal. Ideal for families, reunions or five couples, the house sleeps ten in two doubles (one en suite), and three twin bedrooms. The well-equipped kitchen seats ten, and glass doors can create an indoor-outdoor eating space with a picnic table and benches in the garden. For children, there is a cosy television corner with beanbags, games, DVDs, and also a fenced-in garden. Beyond, the burn is perfect for playing, as is the pebble beach across the field, and the beech wood is a popular place for building dens. The building was created originally by the famous Scots Baronial architects Peddie and Kinnear in the 1860s, and they made the stable doors tall enough for riders to walk through without dismounting. The house is part of the Achaglachgach Estate, and guests can also walk in the oak woods and the original walled garden. The sandy beach at Carse Bay is less than ten minutes drive, and further along the Kilberry Road there are coves, sandy beaches and views over Gigha, Islay and Jura. The famous Michelin-recommended Kilberry Inn restaurant is nearby, and Tarbert village ten minutes away has restaurants, pubs, a supermarket and fresh seafood.

Visitor comments

  • Alastair Brown
    Three generations of our family just spent a week in the stables. We have family connections as our Grandfather used to look after the estate grounds, and lived in the white cottage beside the stables. We spent many many happy holidays in the cottage as children. We had a fantastic week reliving old memories and exploring the grounds. The Stables themselves have been renovated to an extremely high standard. We could remember the old layout and found ourselves thinking about how many years the stables had been lying under utilised. The re purposing is a total success. The Geo-thermal heating works incredibly well, and we all felt extremely comfortable throughout our stay. The fixtures and fittings are all of a very high standard and we found ourselves wanting for nothing. Would not hesitate to recommend this completely to large family groups looking for a perfect location for a relaxing break.
  • Anne
    We have just spent 2 weeks at Achaglachgach with 2 other families (13 altogether - 3 in travel cots) and it was perfect. The house is amazing, so spacious and bright. We all loved the interiors. The views are fantastic, it's private, it has a large enclosed garden for the kids to run about in. Having the beach so close was great for those who wind-surfed and the woodland across the field for those who were brave enough to sleep in a hammock!! The kitchen was big enough to cater for our big party. Kilberry Inn is definitely worth a visit and Tarbert has some lovely restaurants too (tapas at Cafebarge). A very enjoyable holiday. Well worth a stay!
  • Emma Schmidt
    We stayed for a week at the end of May, 5 adults, 5 children and our dog. This is a great house in a truly beautiful location. The house is very spacious, light and stylishly furnished, yet comfortable. Lovely beach nearby to explore, all the kids in our group loved looking for shells. Great walking locally. Tarbert is a short drive away with great restaurants and fresh shellfish available to buy. We really enjoyed our week and would definitely recommend it to others.
