The large deck facing South is one of the most popular spots to relax, but the garden itself has several unusual features including a 19th century engine shed at the bottom of the garden. There is a private courtyard to the rear so plenty of choice to find your own private space. The two lounges are ideal for allowing younger family members to have there own space.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I live in Glasgow so the house is made ready before hand, with guests making their own way into the property. There is a local representative who can help with any queries and I am usually quick to respond to emails and texts. Always happy to answer questions.
Situated on the Hebridean Island of Luing, Cullipool enjoys magnificent views over the Firth of Lorne to the Island of Mull. Oban is 30 kilometers distant with good shopping and ferry access to Mull and the Hebrides. Very safe location. Cullipool is a cul de sac so little passing traffic. Creagard is located in a secluded corner of the village and is very private.
You can hire bikes or simply walk the island with no restriction. Local boat trips based in Easdale and Seil take you to some of the nearby islands which have seventh century bee hive cells and other ancient ruins. Very few fences so ideal walking country. Highest point is around 100 meters. Dogs welcome but must be sensibly controlled. Always on a leash during the lambing season.
There is a shop and post office on the island one kilometer from the house.
Please support this facility as the friendly owners depend on local support to survive. The local museum serves meals and coffees during the day. They now have a drinks licence. The islanders are very welcoming and are pleased when you join in with their activities including dances and functions in the local hall.
There is no additional cleaning charge but I expect guests to leave the house in the way they find it when they arrive.
There is an additional charge of £20 per pet, maximum two pets.
Events or parties are allowed but subject to approval. I`ve had a wedding or two in the past, so this can be arranged.

Easy, outgoing and always working hard to improve visitor experience at Creagard.
I am a keen sailor, and Creagard is the ideal location to explore the surrounding waters. There are two free moorings, and launching a dingy or canoe is an easy task.
I feel that my house is a special place, and welcome others to come along and enjoy the experience.
I believe in enjoying the moment, along with good food, drinking wine with the occasional dram, and some say I am not a bad cook. Looking after the planet and reducing waste is very much part of my lifestyle. Living up the these aspirations can be the challenge.
