Property information

This Gate Lodge to Achaglachgach House enjoys a prime position on the shores of West Loch Tarbert. This cosy, stone lodge has outstanding views over the loch, mountains, woodlands and towards Mull of Kintyre, and provides comfortable self catering accommodation for 4 people.

It is here that you can visit not only the Jail Museum but also what is reputed to be the best Whisky Shop in the world - Loch Fyne Whiskies!

    13-20 August 2016 We have had a wonderful time staying in this lovely lodge.never expected to be on the beaches in shorts for the majority of the week. Our favourite beach was a'chleit as very easy access from the car park and rock pools for our toddler to explore. As we love the golden sand we also enjoyed west port and saw Southend beach too. Visiting arran was great for well known souvenirs at good prices arran arroucha , cheese and beer. Islay was an amazing visit with lots of distilleries and amazing beaches-we would have liked longer. If you like fish the seafood cabin at skipness is a must and the prices are amazing! Butchers in Tarbert was good and so was the food at the anchorage, the starfish looked amazing but was not ideal for our toddler so didn't try Thankyou for the shortbread and lovely flowers made us feel very welcome .

    6th-13th August We've had a lovely week at the cosy comfortable lodge house. With everything you could need for a holiday stay We found Tarbert and its cafe's and tourist info warm, helpful and friendly We explored all the nearby walks and enjoyed the lochside location crabbing and dog walking. The Ardpatrick estate was a great previous tip and had a wonderful day exploring secluded beaches and sharing it with a dozen or so seals! Last day we drove to skipness explored the castle ruins and had the best lunch at the seafood cabin overlooking a misty arran. Biscuits were great on arrival and flowers lasted all week.

    30th April - 7th may 16 A lovely cottage in a magical spot. We've enjoyed the comfy beds, soft towels and endless supply of logs and the eclectic selection of books . We've been visiting this part of Scotland for some years now and our favourite areas are Skipness, Carradale beach, Loch Cali sport is lovely - good walk along the road on the north side also enjoyed walk up through the Ardpatrick estate nearby to the island. The forestry walks of knapdale are worth doing ( we've yet to see the beavers ) and along the canal too. Good lunches at Kilmartin museum and Tayvallich - not expensive . We are looking forward to our next visit .
