LocationStrachur

The small village of Strachur is located on the shore of Loch Fyne, on the north west edge of the Cowal Peninsula. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the village is ideal for exploring the local walks. Glenbranter Forest, part of the greater Argyll Forest Park, has a number of walking and cycling routes, including the Launder Walk. If you are visiting the village, stop by the Strachur Smiddy Museum, a small exhibition, displaying the tools of the traditional blacksmith trade. 

Argyllshire

Argyllshire is one of the larger of the Scottish counties. Located in the west, Argyll incorporates the coastline and isles between the Mull of Kintyre up to Ardnamurchan. The area’s biggest attraction is its immense range of landscapes; with miles of rugged cliffs and mountainous highland scenery to discover, as well as beautiful woodlands, the area is a dream destination for nature lovers. Why not visit the magnificent volcanic rock island of Staffa, where the puffins make their summer home? Or join the Beaver Trail to spot the elusive mammal recently reintroduced to the area. You could also take in the Gulf of Corryvreckan on the island at Jura, the third largest natural whirlpool in the world! Island hopping tours are a great way to discover the isles of Argyll, and for keen walkers, the mountainous landscapes of the likes of Ardgour, and the westerly range of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park are well worth a visit. Towns to take in include Oban, a resort town nestled on the Firth of Lorn; Dunoon, home to the famous Cowal Highland Gathering, an annual highland games; and Campbeltown, the county’s historic centre for whisky, fishing and ship-building.  

Highlands and Islands

This region takes in Inverness-shire, Ross-shire, Sutherland, Caithness and the islands include the Inner and Outer Hebrides as well as Orkney and the Shetland islands. For spectacular scenery the Highlands of Scotland provides some of the best, with a huge expanse of area full of mountains, lochs and glens full of romance, wildlife and scenic beauty. The heritage of this area includes Culloden, taking the ferry to the Isle of Skye or just taking in one of the many castles like Eilean Donan. There is also an immense range of wildlife to be found.

5th September 2016 Excellent 

Lovely castle in a lovely location. Big enough to absorb all our group. We had a group from 16 months to 71 years and everyone was catered for. There was an aga and a modern cooker in the kitchen which helped cater for everyone's different cooking at the same time. The kitchen became the hub of the house. Pity the formal dining room had no dumb waiter, as meant we never used it and always ate in the kitchen. The small television room next to the kitchen was very useful for keeping the younger children happy. Bedrooms were great and snooker room used a lot. The living room could do with two of the sofas replacing however as the cushions were totally flat and therefore they were very uncomfortable to sit on and awkward for getting in and out of as they were so low down!.

Service rating : Thanks so much for your excellent review of our service and taking the time to leave feedback. So glad you found our team helpful on the phone and the online payment system useful. We look forward to helping with your next trip!


Product : Wonderful to hear your family enjoyed the stay in this stunning 18 century Baronial Castle, glad you found the accommodation spacious and well equipped…I’m sure the wonderful location and amazing loch views have made this is very memorable holiday. 

We agree, the cosy kitchen is the heart of the castle with informal seating which is perfect for everyday family meals, the TV room next door is certainly handy for keeping the children occupied and the formal dining room found on the first floor is also lovely for a special meal or celebratory occasion! We will pass on your lovely feedback to the owners of this castle and hope to hear from you again in the future.

7th April 2016 Great

We absolutely loved our week here. There is plenty of space for everyone without being too big so you feel seperated. The grounds around are beautiful and exploring the old castle is great fun too. Lots of walks around, highly recommend seeking out the hidden loch. Nearest pub is great and the local shop is well stocked. Dunoon has a big Morrions for shopping. Highly recommend a stay here and we will definitely go back.

26th June 2013 Excellent 

Castle Lachlan is an old place, and the general standard of the building is 1900, maybe charming to some, but demands some handling and maintenance activities for the rest of us. But the bedrooms are first class!
The support and instructions from Mark Graham is excellent though. Nice guy!

Many thanks for your feedback, it is always great to hear guests first-hand experience. As this castle dates back to the 18th century it is full of antiquities and has a lovely authentic feel! We are very glad to hear you had an enjoyable stay and will pass on your comments to the owners!

Don't forget we offer a loyalty discount to returning clients, and I hope we can help with future holiday plans.
