2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Balvicar, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
The Granary is the wing of a beautiful old farmhouse on the island of Seil.

Downstairs is an open plan dining kitchen, living room and wet room. The patio doors lead out to a seating area where there is room to sit around the fire pit or have a barbecue in the quiet garden. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one en suite.

There's a Smart television, free wireless internet, a wood-burning stove and a well stocked library. Outside there's a children's play area, barbecue and firepit (please request to have these left out) and table and chairs. On the island there are two pubs that both serve food. It's a great area for walking, canoeing or diving. You can take the famous Seafari or Sea Life boat trips, or take the short ferry to neighbouring islands.

Mull, Iona and Loch Ness are all within a day's drive.
