A light and very spacious loft room overlooking the picturesque Crinan Canal. The large top floor has amazing views and a wood burning stove.
It is mainly self-contained with a sleeping area, living area and basic cooking facilities. There are two bathrooms in the house which are shared with me and my son.
I provide a kettle, toaster, microwave, small fridge and a variety of basic foods, so you can be independent but you are welcome to use my large kitchen for more cooking.
A warm welcome awaits

The space
The loft room spans the entire top floor of the house, with 6 velux windows to let the light in all day.
The sleeping area has a double bed, a small wooden closet, a bedside table with drawers. There is also a day bed that pulls out to another double bed.
The living/relaxing area has a 5 seater sofa, wood burning stove, full internet TV and a selection of DVD's and books.
I have provided camping style kitchen facilities, with a kettle, toaster, combination microwave, small fridge, crockery and cutlery. It will be stocked with foodstuffs for a continental style breakfast. You can use the facilities to cook your own meals and before Coronovirus I offered the use of our own bigger kitchen to cook in too. However I have suspended the use of this shared space until I feel it safe to offer. There are lots of great places to eat out, Crinan Hotel and Ciarnbaan Hotel being the nearest plus there is a well stocked Co-op in Lochgilphead for all your provisions.
There is a bathroom with a shower on the floor below the loft which is solely for use by guests.

Guest access
On the groundfloor I have a workshop with a washing machine that you are more than welcome to use. There is also room for storing bikes and space to work on them if any repairs are needed.
There are garden spaces at the back of the house that you can access, along with benches at the front that you can sit in to watch the sun go down.

Location

Bellanoch, Scotland, United Kingdom

The Crinan Canal is described as the 'most beautiful shortcut in Britain' and Braeface is situated right next to it at Bellanoch Basin. It is a Grade 2 listed stone building, believed to have been built in the early 19th century to house the engineers involved in the construction of the canal which began in 1801.
Bellanoch Basin is a small hamlet with about 10 houses, it is nice and quiet with one road that leads to the village of Crinan, 2 miles away, that provides the western entrance to the Crinan Canal from the Atlantic. Crinan has a lovely hotel with a bar, seafood bar and restuarant for lunches and dinner. The Crinan Coffee shop is a gorgeous place to sit during the day and watch the boats entering and leaving the canal.

In my late 40's with two grown up sons who both live with me and work locally. They embrace the Airbnb ethos, so if I'm not around they are happy to help out and chat with guests. I love living where I do and like to spend as much time as possible outside. I don't do adventure sports but love just being out there doing things, working on the garden, walking, wild swimming or sitting with friends watching the sun go down. I run my upholstery business in the ground floor of the house and I'm passionate about doing up old furniture and not throwing things away. I enjoy a 'let's just go and see what we find' approach to travelling. I've been to some fascinating places, but always enjoy coming back to Argyll which is an amazing place to live.
