Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Achlian is a working hill farm. The house is situated in an elevated position above Loch Awe with stunning views. The house and cottage are one building. A warm welcome awaits.

The space
Elegantly decorated spacious bedrooms with crisp cotton sheets, duvets and fluffy towels. Double or twin beds. There is a dining/sitting room with separate kitchen and entrance hallway. There is a second sitting area with unlimited free wifi.

Achlian is a working farm in the Highlands of Scotland overlooking Ben Cruachan and Loch Awe. The rooms are full of character, colour and light and available to rent for minimum two nights or for full weeks.

Totally refurbished early in 2014 with traditional furniture and fittings the cottage and rooms are used by the owners family when they visit, and the furnishings and photos reflect that. The owner is an artist so expect quirky painted items of up cycled furniture, blasts of colour, and handmade items in the rooms. The rooms are spacious and accommodate 5 easily with plenty space for a cot if necessary

Guests have their own entrance, kitchen, dining room, sitting room - as well as their bedrooms and bathroom.

The neighbourhood is quiet, though expect to hear farm vehicles, our cat, dogs, sheep, cattle, children, birds, deer..... Red deer are a common sight on the lawn in the morning.

There is a bus that passes the end of the drive 6 times a day going either to Oban or Glasgow.
The nearest train station is 4 miles away and airport (Glasgow) is just over an hour away.

This is a rural area. Mobiles work well, and unlimited BT broadband finally arrived February 2015 - and is fantastic!

I am the 4th generation of my family to live on the farm here. I know the area well and can advise people where to go both on and off the beaten track. I have been to the places I recommend and often with my 4 children. We live an outdoor life, we spend a lot of time in and on the loch, fishing, canoeing, having barbeques, foraging for food. We have many different animals on the farm. A lot of the furniture and furnishings are antique, upcycled, painted, or in some way colourful. We have a much loved family off grid hut and quirky campervan which are also available for rent.
