Cedarwood cottage near the shores of Loch Etive

Located in: Taynuilt
Cedarwood Cottage is a small wooden cottage surrounded by croftland, woodland and just a 2 minute walk from the shore of Loch Etive where you can see seals, herons and other wildlife as well as the views up Glen Etive. The cottage has two comfortable bedrooms; a dining kitchen; bathroom and a cosy sitting room with open fire. The cottage sits within a small garden where you can sit and enjoy the rhododendrons in spring and a BBQ in the summer.
The open fire is lovely and cosy and heats the whole house, in addition to the electric central heating. We provide a big bag of Scottish peat, kindling and firelighters. If you wish to purchase more peat during your stay, please let us know.
Cedarwood Cottage is in rural Argyll, as such internet access and phone signal is limited and slower than in city areas. This is out of our control due to infrastructure and weather. We understand it can be frustrating but equally a wonderful escape from the fast pace of modern life and worth embracing.

Cedarwood Cottage lies in the Airds Bay area of Taynuilt village. The village boasts a 9 hole golf course; train station (on the Glasgow to Oban line); play park; Post Office; butchers; grocers; craft shop, delightful cafe (The Robins Nest) and hair salon.
Taynuilt is also home to Bonawe Iron Furnace an Historic Scotland property. It is the most complete charcoal-fuelled ironworks in Britain. Founded in 1753, it ceased firing only in the 1870s. Today, displays show every stage of how pig iron was made – as well as cannonballs for use in the Napoleonic Wars.
The cottage is just off the shores of Loch Etive where Deirdre of the Sorrows and her lover, Naoise, fled to from Ireland. Maybe you will see them, forever swimming on the Loch as a pair of devoted swans. In the summer of 2018 a monument to their story was erected on the hills behind Taynuilt among the wind turbines. It s well worth the hike.
Across the Loch lies Ardchattan Priory founded in 1230 by Sir Duncan MacDougall, of the family of the Lords of Lorn. It was here in 1308 when King Robert the Bruce held what is said to be the last Scottish Parliament ever conducted in Gaelic.
Today the ruins of the priory church, now in the care of Historic Scotland, can be seen by accessing them through the Priory gardens. When wandering through the old grave stones, keep a look out for the grave of Scotland s most famous murder victim, the Red Fox!
