Castle Lachlan Ref: CC523060
Castle Lachlan is a beautiful Scottish baronial house set within the Strathlachlan Estate, which has 1500 acres of land and provides a stunning view down to Loch Fyne and Lachlan Bay.  The Castle is the home of the Clan MacLachlan and the owner, Euan MacLachlan is the 25th Clan Chief. The ruins of Old Castle Lachlan can still be found on the shore of Loch Fyne. It was the Clan home until bombarded from the sea in 1746 by an English warship following the defeat of the Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden. This was retribution against the MacLachlans for joining the unsuccessful rebellion.  Lachlan MacLachlan, the Chief, ADC to Bonnie Prince Charlie, was killed in the battle.  The New Castle started life as a Queen Anne style house at the end of the 18th century.  Then at the end of the 19th century the Scottish baronial transformation was undertaken. It has now been cleverly divided so that the grander southwest facing front is now available for self-catering holidays.  The accommodation is spread over four floors with the kitchen, playroom and shower room on the ground floor.  The first floor has the main living area with drawing room, dining room leading to a billiard room with full sized table; all first-floor rooms have the benefit of a sea view.  The second floor has four bedrooms, all except one have a sea view; the master bedroom has an en-suite and dressing room.  The third attic floor has the remaining three bedrooms, with a single bedroom positioned within the Tower.  The Estate is mainly sheep farming with some woodland.  There are three miles of coastline, nearly all of which is only accessible on foot.  Many different levels of walks are available locally from gentle strolls to more adventurous trails.  The gardens have a tennis court which is available for use by guests.  Seasonal sporting activities are available locally, booking essential.  Clay pigeon shooting and quad bike safaris can also be arranged. The family also owns the Inver Cottage Restaurant which is only a 15 minute walk away providing food throughout the day and evening. A village shop and petrol station can be found in Strachur, only 6 miles away.  Strathlachlan is a great location to explore.

This holiday property is situated in a stunning, private, elevated position looking over Loch Awe and the ruins of Finchairn Castle. It has a square enclosed courtyard to the back of the property and a large garden to the front which is bordered by a dry stone wall with far reaching views across the loch. This detached, multi-storey farmhouse is located on Ederline Estate, a family-owned working hill farm, covering around 13000 acres of stunning scenery. The estate is made up of woodland, far reaching moors, 22 lochs; all with wild brown trout which guests are welcome to fish with a fly (£10 per day), and on Loch Ederline guests can fish for pike, perch and roach. Wildlife in the area is legendary, with red and roe deer, pine martens, foxes and red squirrels often seen. The famous Scottish wildcat and otter are also common but not seen as regularly. Golden eagle, osprey, peregrines, black and red throated divers and many other rare species all nest on the estate. The area is rich in history and archaeological sites, with the main concentration in the Kilmartin Glen only a short distance away. On the estate itself there are two ancient chapels and a castle to be explored. Activities include kayaking (£10 per half day, £15 per full day), local pony trekking, and in season, stalking can be arranged.

Short ferry crossings to Islay, Gigha, Mull and Arran are easily made, or the Kintyre Peninsula offers white sandy beaches and some of the best golf courses in Scotland.
