Welcome to Ballimore Farm Estate

Scottish Country Retreat with House, Cottage and Lodge in Argyll

Going on holiday is exciting but can often be a stressful experience for the one organising it.

From agreeing on suitable dates to finding the right accommodation, suitable for grandma as well as for the teen agers and the two year old nephew can be difficult and getting a variety of opinions to take into consideration, but still make everyone happy is a tall task.

Throughout the last 10 years Ballimore Farm Estate has had a large number of family groups, reunions, anniversary and birthday parties as well as stag and hen parties and small wedding groups, and we see that for those organising the holiday, arriving at the destination is often a stressful experience.

After a long drive, on often unfamiliar roads, it is important that our guests arrive at their destination and immediately relax and for those we three have different properties to suit your group size and budget:
