Little Keills is a large 5 bedroomed detached house sitting in its own enclosed garden within 10 acres of land. Its stunning location and elevated position at the southern end of the Keills Peninsula on the West Coast of Argyll offers spectacular views across the MacCormaig Isles to the islands of Jura and Islay, and southwards over Loch na Cille towards Gigha and Northern Ireland. With its own private jetty and boathouse, it really is the perfect spot for a family gathering!
Argyll is renowned for its mild climate and natural beauty with sailing, kayaking and other water sports regularly enjoyed along its scenic coastline. Whilst Little Keills maybe nestled in the quiet countryside, the village of Tayvallich with its pretty harbour is close by (5 miles) and provides all of the usual day-to-day needs with a General Store, Post Office, Church and Inn and a bit further afield is the larger town of Lochgilphead (15 miles) offering a full range of local services and a supermarket.
Accessed via a long sweeping driveway, the spacious property includes a bright and airy sitting room, TV room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, two bedrooms and a family bathroom. Up the main staircase and off the galleried landing is a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a further double bedroom and bathroom, and accessed from the rear staircase is another double bedroom with en-suite shower room.
A host of activities can be found in the immediate area including Little Keills own private little beach in which to play and paddle about in the water, a number of beautiful forestry walks nearby plus the historic Keills Chapel which dates back to the 11th Century and which is now looked after by Historic Scotland and nearby Tayvallich with its renowned inn, a coffee shop and all-weather tennis court. Lochgilphead (15 miles) offers a mountain bike trail and cycle hire, angling club (day permits available) and a challenging 9-hole golf course. Further afield are the stunning Kilmory Sands, the championship course of Machrihanish or boat trips from Crinan Harbour to enjoy the wildlife.
Oil central heating, electricity, bedlinen and towels are all included. Pets are welcome by arrangement. Sorry, smoking is not permitted in the property.
