  • Description


    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.
    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.

    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.
