Sithean is a delightful new house situated on a working hill farm in the stunningly beautiful Glen Lonan. Sithean, (pronounced shian), means 'fairy knoll' in Gaelic and is built in an elevated position overlooking Glen Lonan. The house commands spectacular views of Loch Etive and the 'Shepherds of Glencoe' to the North, Ben Cruachan to the East, and the sun sets over the distant hills of Morvern. The house is beautifully designed and is full of surprises like the sauna which accesses into the birch woodlands. It sleeps eight and our goal has been to make it as family-friendly, comfortable and unique as possible.
We arrived late at night to a warm, comfortable and beautiful home and when we woke the next day and saw the outside it just got even better.
The house had everything we needed and plenty of space for the 6 of us and our large dog, and we could walk directly from the house and see some spectacular views. We also drove short distances (mostly less than 20 minutes) to forests, mountains, shops, castles...all so accessible from the house.
The sauna was a real treat and being able to stand outside after and cool off under the stars was perfect.
Definitely want to return.
