Holiday Rental House
Yealand House is a spacious house in a stunning hillside position. Guests will enjoy spectacular views over Crinan Harbour to the sound of Jura, Scarba and The Gulf of Corryvreckan. This beautifully designed split level detached family house, built in the 1980's, is close to Crinan Basin where the Crinan Canal joins the sea. The highlight is the large sitting room with its stunning views. The double height ceiling, minstrels' gallery and many windows fill the room with light while the cosy wood burning stove and comfortable seating make it a delightful room to gather in throughout the year. Sliding doors lead onto a deck balcony where guests can watch the glorious sunsets and the gentle movements of boats. The deck gives direct access to the pretty garden and a path and steps lead ...Yealand House is a spacious house in a stunning hillside position.

Views over the isles were fantastic and so close to the lovely town of Crinan (& canal) and Kilmartin Glen. House was spacious, attractive and well-appointed. Of course all this comes with a matching price tag.
