Holiday Rental House
Please be aware that currently the Scottish Government does not permit more than 6 persons from 1 household (children under 12 are not included) to meet indoors/stay overnight - this applies to holiday accomodation too. If you book for more than 6, +young children, I may need to remind you of this restraint if it is still in place at the time of your booking. Shelborne Lodge is recently renovated to provide comfortable flexible holiday accommodation. Situated next to the historic Crinan Canal at Cairnbaan, it has everything needed for a wonderful base to explore Argyll. Beavers, boat trips, interesting walks, castles, prehistoric stone circles, whirlpools, islands, bike hire with easy scenic rides or more challenging singletrack, the area offers a wide choice of activities - or just chill...Please be aware that currently the Scottish Government does not permit more than 6 persons from 1 household (children under 12 are not included) to meet indoors/stay overnight - this applies to holiday accomodation too.

A short walk away is Cairnbaan Hotel, excellent food and bar, with many other dining opportunities a short drive away. Wheelchair accessible ground floor rooms, accessible bedroom, accessible shower -room (contact us for accessibility advice) Perfect as a holiday house for two families, a larger family who like extra space, or a group of friends who want a quiet holiday.

Useful outside utility room with washing machine, tumble drier, sink, hose - great for cleaning outdoor gear and bikes! Pets welcome, WiFi provided, large Freesat HD tv. Outdoor teak chairs and tables to seat 10. Parking for 3 cars, more parking a few yards away. Covid 19 - our enhanced cleaning regime is recognised by VisitScotland's 'Good to Go' scheme.

About the neighbourhood
Activities and attractions nearby include beavers, boat trips, interesting walks, castles, prehistoric stone circles, whirlpools, islands, bike hire with easy scenic rides, beaches, a wide choice of restaurants and bars.
Getting around
Walking or biking directly from the house, along the canal towpath, is a great start to the holiday, and this gives access to forestry walks too. With a car you can access a hugh choice of interesting destinations - far more than you could possibly visit in a week's holiday. Boat trips are another option, perhaps the fast ferry to Jura, a wild rib ride to see the whirlpools at Correyvreckan, or a day trip to Mull on the regular ferries from Oban.
