Happy Trail Cottage on The Crinan Canal

Sleeping 6 guests in 3 bedrooms, this spacious cottage is perfect for multiple generation families, or for couples looking to explore the area.

Situated right on the canal itself between locks 3 and 4, the property enjoys stunning views out over the canal and to Loch Fyne beyond.  The sun porch makes the perfect spot to sit with a good book and enjoy the surroundings (wave to the passing yachts!) - or you could take a stroll along the canal and look for the resident kingfishers!

The property is also ideal for cyclists, with lockable bike storage to the side, and access to the towpath from the house - which runs all the way to Crinan (around 9 miles).

The Property


The Area

Sitting on the banks of the Crinan Canal, the property enjoys an enviable position.  It is located in Ardrishaig, near Lochgilphead, Mid Argyll.  

It enjoys the peace and quiet but is only a 2 minute walk to the local shops, museum, restaurant/pub and cafes.

The canal and Loch Fyne are accessible from the property - paddle boarding, kayaking and sailing are all very possible if you bring your equipment (also available to hire within walking distance of the property).

The canal is great for walking along, and is also perfect for cyclists - with Crinan itself (and a great coffee shop!) being around 9 miles away.

Happy Trail Cottage is ideally placed to explore Argyll, with ferries to the islands within easy reach, and Oban around an hour up the road.

Prices: £600 - £950 per week - book direct for best rates!

Bed Linen, towels, WiFi & electricity all included - no hidden extras!

The property has a very practical layout, mostly situated on the ground floor.  Downstairs features:

  • a spacious living room with plenty of seating, a smart TV and a desk (incase you have to work during your stay)

  • a large fitted kitchen, with dishwasher, washing machine, grill/oven/hob, fridge/freezer and a wide selection of crockery and utensils

  • master suite with a superking bed (can also be made up as a twin on request), built in wardrobes, seating are and an ensuite shower room

  • dining conservatory with a mediterranean feel to it - a wonderfully light space, ideal for board games as well as meals!

  • twin bedroom

  • family bathroom (electric shower over the bath)


And up the spiral staircase, you'll find a large double bedroom with sink in it, and views out to Loch Fyne from the Velux window.

Outdoors there is seating space and parking in the private driveway for up to 3 cars - please be aware that there is no enclosed space, therefore it may be unsuitable for young children.

There is a lockable area to the side of the property for storage of bicycles - canoes or kayaks can be left on the driveway at your own risk.
