Barr na Criche is a superb place to relax and get away from it all. There is wide spread walking within the grounds, through the ancient woodland or down to the seashore. This is a paradise for children, plenty of space to run about, with the owners ponies and sheep nearby. The picturesque fishing village of Tarbert is nine miles away and has a good range of shops and restaurants, including a golf course. Crear, the international arts and music space, is close by. A day trip with Calededonian MacBrayne to one of the islands is great fun. The Isle of Gigha, famous for its gardens has a ferry that runs hourly, whilst the larger ferry, which sails in view of the cottage, takes you to Islay, famous for whisky. The Isle of Arran is easily accessible by day; known as 'Scotland in miniature', it has plenty to see and do for all ages. Mid Argyll is full of history, the Heritage Centre at Kilmartin will tell you all you need to know. Horse riding, cycle tracks and fishing are available locally and the Kilberry Inn, renowned for good food, wine and hospitality is only 5 miles away.
