Full Description

A holiday at Ellary and Castle Sween is also interesting to anglers who can obtain permits to fish the Lochead Burn (salmon and seatrout) as well as other burns on the estates and a great many trout lochs; to cyclists and mountain bikers who can explore most of the estates on the private estate roads and tracks; to photographers and golfers. Some will want to come simply to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, which is probably the main attraction of Ellary and Castle Sween .
As an occupier of accommodation at Ellary and Castle Sween, you are welcome to use the whole of the area of the estates which extend to approximately fifteen thousand acres. The enthusiastic hill walker will find all he could possibly wish for. Lochead Glen, for example, is one of the prettiest glens in Scotland, and from the heights of Corrbhan on a clear day, you can see as far as the Nevis range to the North, the head of Loch Fyne and Ben Arthur to the East, Kintyre and Northern Ireland to the South and the Isles of Jura, Scarba etc. to the West. At the same time, the less energetic, who may not feel the need for such exercise, can experience the same kind of adventure taking a comparatively easy stroll, for example the walk from Balimore down to Stronefield beach, or from Ellary down past the golf practise area to the Salmon Pool and beyond takes you into fascinating countryside, and there are many alternatives. Remember, you are free, when you are staying here, to go wherever you please.
Our properties have been updated, modernised and maintained to an equal high standard over the years.  All except Cove Cottage are within a stone’s throw of the sea.  The cottages all stand in their own grounds, offering privacy and seclusion and are equipped with everything that you are likely to require on your holiday.   Washing machines, microwaves, fridges and freezers, TV’s (with free satellite channels) are all included.   All you need to bring are your towels and bed linen.   Open fires and night storage heating are provided in all properties with the exception of Turbine House which has underfloor heating throughout and no open fire.
All properties  have access to the internet which is charged separately and all electricity is metered.    Payphones are installed in each cottage as there is no immediate mobile phone reception.   Fishing permits can be purchased from the Estate Office.
