The Island of Luing by the Firth of Lorne 18 miles south of Oban offers a quiet spot in the age of digital communication, and a refreshing escape from the pressures of modern living. Easily reached by a short sheltered regular ferry crossing, Creagard Country House is situated in the conservation village of Cullipool. The house has been lovingly restored to a high standard with many unique features.The gardens offer almost complete privacy. Superb sea views to Mull and breathtaking sunsets.

The space

Creagard is a house for those wishing a unique experience on one of the more unknown West of Scotland coastal highland locations. There are two entrances, one to the front through an attractive porch directly into the main kitchen.The second entrance opens into the very large vaulted ceiling main lounge. From the main lounge, you access the master twin bedroom with ensuite as well as onto a superb decking area overlooking the pond with sea views. The kitchen has a spiral which accesses the Chart room, with superb sea views over the Firth of Lorne to Mull. The kitchen also accesses the two double bedrooms with adjoining shower room/ toilet.

Luing is a great get-away destination yet is close to all the amenities of the mainland. The local shop/ post-office offers not only the basics but also speciality meats and wines.The museum in Cullipool opposite Creagard offers meals and beveridges. A regular, all year round, and inexpensive car ferry takes you across to the mainland of Seil.

Guest access

The large deck facing South is one of the most popular spots to relax, but the garden itself has several unusual features including a 19th century engine shed at the bottom of the garden. There is a private courtyard to the rear so plenty of choice to find your own private space. The two lounges are ideal for allowing younger family members to have there own space.

Interaction with guests

I live in Glasgow so the house is made ready before hand, with guests making their own way into the property. There is a local representative who can help with any queries and I am usually quick to respond to emails and texts. Always happy to answer questions.

Other things to note

There is a shop and post office on the island one kilometer from the house.
Please support this facility as the friendly owners depend on local support to survive. The local museum serves meals and coffees during the day. They now have a drinks licence. The islanders are very welcoming and are pleased when you join in with their activities including dances and functions in the local hall.

Our time in Cullipool was absolutely fantastic. The island is beautiful, the house is comfortable and gorgeous inside and out, and we wish we could have stayed longer! It was a perfect place to get away and relax. We loved hiking in the hills, walking down to the beach, and exploring the island.

A beautiful house in a beautiful location. Tons of room for everyone to spread out and do their own thing, or get together for meals or just hang out. This is the place to go for quiet and recharging your batteries. Walk to the beach, walk around the village, sit and read, stare at the ocean, stare at the cliffs . . . You can also drive around the island and see historic ruins and beautiful scenery (mind the sheep!). The local people are as friendly as can be. It's kind of remote--miles to the nearest city (Oban), shopping, restaurants, etc. But that's the whole point. Lay in some groceries, don't miss the last ferry (you can download the exact schedule), and you're good to go! We were truly sad to leave.

This is a fantastic property and a superb location for a family get away. The location is remote but easily accessible if you plan in advance. It's well worth the effort when you get there as the location is stunning, the property is filled with character and the local community is welcoming and helpful. Cully, although remote is a very helpful host. He answered all questions in advance of our stay almost immediately and provided us with plentiful information so that we could plan accordingly.

Our stay in Cullypool was just magic. Luing Island has that unique atmosphere and Cully's house was the ideal place for our two kids and my dad even better than description. It is warm, comfy, clean, good beds, good internet, kitchen perfect... besides being beautiful! I hope we can come back one day!

Creagard is a really magical wee place, we were sorry to have to leave when our trip came to an end. The house is striking - from the vaulted living room and the stained glass to the spiral staircases and sailing motifs - but its still homely and comfortable. Its full of lovely details and it made the perfect spot for a relaxing family getaway. Our six year old daughter Matilda summed it up when she signed Cully's guestbook: "I want to stay for 60 years."

Easy, outgoing and always working hard to improve visitor experience at Creagard.
I am a keen sailor, and Creagard is the ideal location to explore the surrounding waters. There are two free moorings, and launching a dingy or canoe is an easy task.
I feel that my house is a special place, and welcome others to come along and enjoy the experience.
I believe in enjoying the moment, along with good food, drinking wine with the occasional dram, and some say I am not a bad cook. Looking after the planet and reducing waste is very much part of my lifestyle. Living up the these aspirations can be the challenge.
