We live in a small village on the west coast of Scotland right beside a Loch. In one of the most beautiful parts of the world. There are islands and mountains within easy reach and history surrounds us. We have some fantastic hikes with stunning views.
I run a 2 bedroom B&B right on the banks of the Loch and also make things from driftwood and beach stuff. Mirrors, shelves etc.
Furnace is a great base to see lots of Scottish attractions, castles, mountains, loch and islands and some fantastic nature and hiking.
You will have lots of free time to explore the area too.
Your accomodation is in a comfortable private caravan on the edge of the loch, it has heating, cooking facilities, dvd player and wifi
We have 4 generations of my family here, they will all make you very welcome.
I've a wee dog called Islay too, who is friendly and loves long walks.
