Shopping and Eating Out

Lochgilphead has a range of local shops and a supermarket for all your shopping needs.
There are also a variety of cafes and hotels, a fish and chip shop and both Chinese and Indian restaurants/takeaways in the town.

Further afield but within easy reach there are hotel/restaurants in Crinan, Cairnbaan, Kilmartin and Tayvallich.

We are also a pet friendly house although we do ask that you don't leave them alone in the house or allow them up on the furniture or to sleep on the beds. The area around here is perfect for exercising your dogs and after a long muddy day there is an outside tap to wash them down!

We require occasional use of the steadings and sheds external to the house, however, this will be kept to a minimum and every effort made to avoid interfering with your enjoyment of the peace and the location.
