Camus Arsa is a unique dwelling on a country estate in Argyll, the scenic west coast of Scotland. With stunning views, a horse riding stables within 1 minutes walk, the local pub which often hosts live music a 10 minute walk away, and miles of countryside to explore. Stand where ancient Scottish Kings were crowned, where Sean Connery jumped off the pier as 007, see the 3rd largest whirlpool in the world, the distillery tour, island wildlife tour, go fishing, taste the best of Argyll.
Located on Lunga Estate, this caravan/portacabin hybrid has been renovated to bring you a clean and fresh open plan modern cabin. It's like a caravan, but definitely not as you know it.
I have listed the place as sleeping 4, but if you want more, read on;
The bedroom contains a double bed and en-suite shower/toilet/washroom, and there is an extra toilet/laundry room off the entrance hall. The living room contains a comfy sofa bed which makes a cosy double (or luxurious single), and the Snug area beyond the kitchen contains a small futon fold out mattress. The Snug can be partitioned off from the kitchen with curtains. The futon is rather small and I mean to upgrade it, but I have listed the place for 4 so this a spare bonus 5th bed if you're feeling adventurous and you can also make it bigger and more comfy using the cushions from the sofa and armchair in the living room.
C.A. is a quiet place, if you're just looking to relax. With good mobile signal (4g) and No broadband it's the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle and constant demands of modern life. Wifi is available at the local pub should you find yourself really in need!
In the cabin you will find a selection of books, games and puzzles and other such things for nights in, I do like to give the place that 'lived in' feel and hope that you will want for nothing more. Indeed I take delight in always finding new little amusing things for the place to make you feel at home.
Great views out over the islands for most of the year, clean, fresh and spacious with as many modern conveniences as I can muster.
Please feel free to contact me about larger groups.
I have a printed 'House Manual' which will help you find everything. It includes instructions on how to light the Rayburn, in case you're not familiar with stove lighting. It also comes in English, Spanish, French and German which is handy. The Spanish version is questionable (using google translate) but the French and German are translated by my friend whom has hopefully done well :)
The place is 'rustic', it is a rural countryside dwelling, in the woods and so do be prepared for that. The photographs make it look very posh as is the intention and they are a true representation of how it looks of course, but it is still a rustic cabin in the woods. If that's what you're looking for, I'm sure you'll now what I mean. If you're looking for The Hilton, it's probably not for you :) However, I am to make everyone pleasantly surprised when they walk though the door for the first time, and so far it has worked. :)
Try it, and see if I can make you smile by offering you a cool little cabin that feels lived in and is entirely yours for as long as you want it.
Outside, you will find the sea a short 5 minute walk (viewable from the cabin), the local pub a 10 minute walk, and a local riding stables just 30 seconds walk if you want to explore on horseback. Camus Arsa guests get a special discount!
With many more walks locally depending on how far you want to go or what you want to see, it's a great place to just explore on foot. I have a number of maps and my own personal walking guide I provide you, along with binoculars and everything you'll need for a good explore.
Next to the pub you will find the local marina where you can choose from a number of different boat trips to explore the islands. You will find all the information about these options in the cabin, and how to book them. If you're clever you could organise a horse ride to the pub, then go from horse to boat. You might have to walk home but if you speak nicely to Trish at the stables, well, who knows.
A spectacular haven for wildlife around the local islands it's definitely worth checking out what's on your doorstep.
I live close by on the estate and am always on hand for advice or ideas, or if you have any problems at all I'm on hand 24 hours a day. I live and work on the estate so I'm never far away but will leave you to your own space. I'm always more than delighted to help out with anything when I can.
