Linnet Cottage is a two-bedroom, semi-detached cottage, on the banks of the Crinan Canal, "Britain's most scenic short-cut". Local shops and hotels are an easy stroll.

The location is ideal for island-hopping (ferries to Islay, Jura, Arran, Mull and the Hebrides within an hour's drive), exploring Kilmartin Glen with its dozens of prehistoric sites, cycling of all sorts and gentle walks along the canal or through the forests of mid-Argyle.

Great golf, food and whisky on your doorstep!

Die Unterkunft
Linnet Cottage has been my holiday home for almost 20 years now. I bought it in 1999, and I never tire of the place. Ardrishaig is an old fishing village, but when the Silver Darlings left it re-invented itself as a haven for yachts, the entry to the Crinan Canal, and a gateway to the islands.

Zugang für Gäste
You'll have the use of the entire cottage, which has two bedrooms, a lounge and kitchen, a bathroom with bath and shower and the little conservatory that's tacked on to the front. There's space for one car at the front (my lovely next door neighbour has the use of the other space) and there's a garden to the back with a terrace for sitting in the sun (sun not guaranteed). I only use the side entrance - front doors here are mostly for weddings and funerals.

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
If you approach along Eastbank Road, you might find Lock 4 closed to allow boats through. You can either take the short detour to the basin, and come down along Westbank Road, or do as I do, get out of the car, stretch, and ask if the lock-keeper would like a hand. You won't be held up by more than 10 minutes or so.

Lage

Ardrishaig, Schottland, Vereinigtes Königreich

Kilmartin Glen would be on my must-see list. As well as the stone circle and standing stones at Lady Temple Wood, it's great fun to climb down into two of the cairns which are scattered along the line of the Glen. The tearoom at the heritage centre does great salads and cakes - if it's sunny, you can eat in the courtyard, but they also have a beautiful conservatory hidden downstairs, which is my brunch spot when I get the chance.

There's a couple of less well known things you might want to do. IF it doesn't rain, a ten minute walk from the Kilmartin Road takes you to the top of Dunadd, which is where we used to crown our kings. There's a footprint and a bowl scooped out of the rock at the top of the hill, where the old fort used to be.

I get fascinated by the Cup and Ring marks that are scattered across Scotland and Ireland. No one can agree what these decorations on rock-faces mean, which is part of the fun. The best site is at Achnabrek, which is a couple of miles north of Lochgilphead on the road to Kilmartin.

If you're up for a short walk, I like hanging out at the Crinan end of the canal - there's a woodland walk that starts there (at the last lock before you come into the basin) and that gives great views out to to Islay and Jura, and back up North.

If it rains? Go to the seafood cabin at Skipness - brilliant fresh shellfish, and the best orange sponge around (the secret is that they use their own duck eggs). If the weather breaks, you can walk around the castle.

Or, you can do what I do - grab a book and sit in my little porch, watching the wet people on the yachts.

Oh - if you like whisky, stop off at Loch Fyne Whiskies in Inveraray - they have an amazing selection. The Square Peg in Lochgilphead is good for local gifts.

I'm spending a lot of my time on the East coast just now, but I'm always happy to hear from my guests, by mail or phone. In fact, I'd consider it a favour if you let me know what sort of things you'd like to do when you're here. I'm in love with the place, and very happy to share tips on cycling, golf, whisky, fine dining and unhealthy snacking, and walks in the hills and glens to get rid of the wine, whisky, and world-class seafood.
