Dunchraigaig Guest House
The beautiful and mystical Kilmartin Glen is full of history: standing stones, cairns and stone circles are all around. Dunchraigaig House sits in its midst enjoying views of the Ballymeanoch Stones.
The five comfortable rooms are fully ensuite and equipped with TVs, hairdryers and refreshment trays. The comfortable guest lounge enjoys the view of the stones and the garden a place to relax by the burn on a warm afternoon. There is ample parking and covered parking for cycles and motorbikes. The full Scottish Breakfast allows you to feast on traditional Scottish fare and Lynn's home baking.
Lynn and Cameron will make sure you have a warm welcome whether you are looking for a base to explore Kintyre and the Argyll coast or just stopping overnight on route.
There are over 350 sites of historic interest within a 6 mile radius of Kilmartin and the award winning Kilmartin House museum is worth a visit (see links below for more guides to the museum and the glen.)
Visit the beautiful village of Crinan and stroll or cycle along the famous Crinan canal (cycle hire in Lochgilphead) pausing to feed the ducks.
There are walks to suit all abilities in the area from gentle forest, river or coastal strolls to more demanding hills and munros - we have a range of walks and maps that you can borrow during your stay.
Use us as a base to explore the whole of beautiful Argyll and the Kintyre peninsula
We are centrally placed for visiting the many gardens in the area at Arduaine, Crarae, Kilmory, Achamore on Gigha, Ardkinglas woodland gardens and the gardens at Loch Awe. Most are especially stunning during Rhododendron season which can start as early as late February / early March at Crarae.
Take a boat trip to see local wildlife.
Go 'island hopping' by ferry: a day trip to Gigha, Arran, Mull and Iona or Jura are all possible from Dunchraigaig or stay with us before venturing further afield to Islay.
Take a special boat trip out to the Corryvreckan Whirlpool - one of the best examples of a whirlpool in the world.
Take the forest drive between Loch Awe and Loch Fyne - look out for the Loch Awe Osprey (in season) , follow the deer trail or visit the wildlife hide. The drive takes you to the Auchindrain Museum where you can step back in time and explore an original farming village.
Visit the distilleries of Kintyre and Islay and sample a wee dram or two!
Golf nearby at Lochgilphead and Tarbert and further afield at Oban, Machrihanish or on Gigha
Enjoy the wildlife without even leaving the garden or just relax and enjoy the fresh air!
In winter you may even see the Northern Lights from the garden.
