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.
Huge thanks to Charles, Jan and Duncan for making this another fantastic week. Caddleton feels like a home-from-home these days. Fishing from the boat was surprisingly productive especially given the weather. The boat was also an excellent means to wildlife watch with porpoises, seals and otters seemingly all seeking us out. And above us white-tailed eagles being harried by golden eagles and ravens. This week, more than ever, the cottage felt like a true get-away and the perfect place to relax. Thankyou again!
We were so glad to find such a great place for our holiday, keeping our fingers crossed that we would be able to travel from England to Scotland. Forest Cottage was bigger than the photos suggested, with plenty of room for the six of us. Great views and walks on the estate, and we enjoyed courgettes from the gardens.
