Excellent in every way. We holiday in this area regularly, but this was the first time at Ellary. The view from the kitchen window was captivating in any weather conditions, and the whole estate (as much as we explored) has so much to offer. We were with 4 children (7-13) who loved the freedom of the proximity to the shore,...

Management response:

Nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Ellary, and we hope to see you again soon!

About the neighbourhood
The distance from Glasgow to Ellary is about 100 miles and it will take around two and a half hours. Although the journey can be accomplished faster than this, it is a beautiful drive and well worth the time. Take the M8 through Glasgow and cross the Clyde on the Erskine Bridge. This takes you straight on to the A82 wich at that point is a fast dual carriageway which takes you past the suburbs of Glasgow.
Immediately when you leave the dual carriageway you are suddenly in the Highlands. What were the promise of some mountains in the distance, are suddenly all around you. Look across the water at the steep steep sides of Ben Lomond, and soak up the views of Ben Lui, Ben Vorlich and many others. You are in the heart of 'Ben' country.
Getting around
There is no public transport here, so a car is necessary. We are not far from Tarbert (about 30 minutes), and the ferries to the islands. Similarly, Inverary is about 50 minutes away, and Oban just over an hour.
