The Cottage

The Cottage at Ballimore Farm Estate is a comfortable, one double bedroom Cottage with a sofa bed in the lounge – the cottage is perfect for couples of all ages and small families with children to enjoy the peaceful tranquility within this beautiful remote place


The Lodges

The Lodges lie within the grounds of the Main House but enjoy a tucked away position overlooking the orchard and fields. The two Lodges are connected through an interlinking door and can be rented as two separate properties or as one Large Lodge for six to eight people.

…this beautiful Scottish country retreat sits in thousands of acres of glorious landscape in Argyll at the West Coast of Scotland, with a 3700ft munro as its impressive backdrop.

Ballimore Main House, Cottage and Lodge are 1.5miles from Kilchrenan and 5 miles from Taynuilt, Oban is a short drive away and Glasgow Airport is 1.5 hours South.

Ballimore Farm Estate is a family run working farm, offering self-catering accommodation for different tastes and budgets. Guests will meet our Highland Cattle fold, Hebridean Sheep and Blackfaced Sheep flocks on our fields when walking or driving through the Estate. Local wildlife includes buzzards, eagles, ospreys, hen harriers, black grouses, whooper swans and canada geese but also red squirrels, pine martins, foxes, red deer, otters, minx and wild cats. Regular seasonal visitors around the house include cuckoos, swifts and swallows.


Ballimore Main House and Cottage were built using eco-friendly and energy efficient technologies. With our own wind turbine, reedbeds, solar fans, wood stoves and air sourced heat pumps, we aim to use the least main-grid electricity as possible and encourage our guests to do the same.

The wood we use for burning is provided by our own renewable timber forest. The water for the properties comes from our own spring on the hill. It is very soft spring water.


The Main House offers a modern interior with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a library, south facing terrace and a heated indoor swimming pool, comfortably accommodating 10-12 people. The well-equipped large one bedroom Cottage is perfect for small families and the two Lodges with interlinking door can be rented individually as one, accommodating up to six people.

All the properties on the farm can be rented individually or as a whole, depending on the time of year and availability.
