There are local walks from within the village and a slate beach to enjoy skimming stones on.

House Rules
Pets Allowed: Yes
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
I generally allow two dogs in the cottage depending on the size of them. However we ask that the owners of our furry friends use the sofa blankets provided if they are likely to jump up, and that the cottage is left in the condition it was found. The cottage is semi detached and should be mindful of their neighbours. No parties are allowed in the property.

About the neighbourhood
Ellenabeich has craft shops, a bar which also serves meals and the An-Cala Gardens which is part of Scotland's garden scheme. We also have a Heritage Museum that depicts the way of life when the area was a thriving Slate Quarry Industry. Four miles along the road is 'Tigh an Truish' Hotel/Pub and the famous 'Bridge Over the Atlantic' built in 1792 and described as the only bridge that crosses the Atlantic. This bridge connects the mainland to the Isle of Seil where Ellenabeich is situated. The ferry ride from the old slate pier to Easdale Island takes only a few minutes and transports you to another world where there are no cars, just natural paths that criss-cross the Island. The pub and restaurant are the centre of the Island's active and varied social life and the award winning Folk M...
