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.

Forest Cottage was bigger than we expected and was exceptionally clean, comfortable and well equipped with Jan checking all was well after our arrival and we’d preordered veg from the estate. Stunning location and didn’t need to use the car to enjoy walking and swimming and Ardmaddy’s beautiful walled garden. Very peaceful but also close to isle of Seil and Luing to enjoy whale watching trip and cycling.
