Ardmaddy Estate sits in a quiet, gentle corner of Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. Whilst within half an hour of the harbour town of Oban and only three hours from Glasgow, once there, you feel as though you are in a different time and space to the rest of the world.
Its quiet tranquility and the utter peace soothes the soul and rest the senses. Its open spaces and magnificent views free the mind. Surrounded by woodland, hills, moors and the sea, Ardmaddy is also a haven for wildlife – from eagles soaring above the hills, to skylarks singing their hearts out and from deer grazing on the hillsides to otters hunting by the shore – there is so much here for you to see and experience.

Ardmaddy Castle gardens are beautiful, and there are plenty of places to walk around the estate.

There is easy access through the garden doors via a ramp, and one step into the house from the back entrance.
The house is a conversion of old stables, with carpets throughout and a comfortable mix of older and newer furniture. There are ...more

Jan made us very welcome, & it is always good to know that she is around, to give advice & answer questions. How did we spend our holiday? We did a lot of walking on the estate, enjoying the calm & the lovely views out to the islands, the walk over to Degnish being particularly good. You can walk round the gardens every day, which we did, & & this year they were particularly colourful. John & Minette do a great job there. The...more
