The Cottage & Area

1 The Cairn is a beautiful Victorian property which has been tastefully modernised, keeping many of its original features and retaining its character.  Once operating as ‘The Cairn’ restaurant, it was converted a number of years ago, and enjoys a prominent position in Kilmartin, across from the new museum.


It features a spacious, sociable open plan living room/dining area/kitchen, with high ceilings, original beams and window seats.  The living room has a plush 3 seater velvet Snug sofa, and pouffe.  There is a TV with Fire stick to allow guests to log in to their own accounts (no standard TV).

The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you might need for a break away, including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, oven/grill, hob and microwave.

The main bedroom has a super-comfy king sized bed and plenty of storage space; whilst the second bedroom features a sofa bed.  There is also a desk with comfortable office chair in the main bedroom, along with fast WiFi incase you need to stay on top of work whilst you're away.

The large bathroom has beautiful period floor tiles, and a separate bath & shower, along with automatic lighting and a heated towel rail.

There is a big porch which offers suitable storage for shoes, boots and even bikes, wheelchairs or prams.

The property features high quality lighting and finishes, and everything simply 'works' - helping you to relax and enjoy your holiday.

Set in the heart of the Kilmartin Glen, an area steeped in history, the flat offers the perfect place to come home to after a long day of exploring.  A 30-second walk from the locally renowned Kilmartin Hotel, or across the road from the Glen Bistro, eating out is an easy choice!  The pub of the Kilmartin Hotel has a fantastic, cosy and welcoming atmosphere - a good place to spend an evening (or two!), getting to know the locals!

The area immediately surrounding the flat is sure to be a hit with walkers and archaeologists alike.  An area steeped in history, the Kilmartin Glen is 'considered to have one of the most important concentrations of Neolithic and Bronze Age remains in Scotland' (VisitScotland, 2024).  There are over 350 ancient (150 of those prehistoric) monuments within 6 miles of the village, which include standing stones, cup & ring marked/carved rocks, forts, castles, cairns and stone circles.

The newly refurbished Kilmartin Museum is a must-see during your stay - and we couldn't get much closer as it is literally across the road!

There are loads of great walks in the area, with the ability to walk for miles right from the flat.  The area is popular with cyclists too with many forest tracks and of course the canal, meaning you don't have to cycle on the main road either.

Dog friendly self catering is increasingly popular, and dogs are very welcome at 1 The Cairn - we believe a family holiday should be available to the whole family.  

We do not limit the size/breed of dogs you can bring, and they are charged at £10 each per week.  We just ask that you confirm in advance the number you are bringing, bring throws/blankets if you allow them on the soft furnishings, and leave the property clean and tidy.
