Cullipool House, Luing

Cullipool House is indeed something special. In a world of increasing mediocrity, here is a beautiful listed home fitted out to the highest standards in its own grounds with a large private garden, just metres from the sea and with truly stunning views of over many nearby islands. Standing sentinel in front of the charming conservation slate village of Cullipool (built at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution) on the island of Luing, Cullipool House was once occupied by the quarry manager. This traditional listed house was originally built in the 18th Century and has just been completely renovated and extended to an exceptional standard. This truly is an unspoilt place to come to rest in stunning surroundings and explore or just restore your soul.

The Area

The islands of the Inner Hebrides are normally fairly inaccessible (quoted in 'The Times' as part of the last wilderness in Europe), which is why they still offer the tranquillity of a slower lifestyle. LUING IS AN UNDISCOVERED GEM AND UNIQUELY ACCESSIBLE (with a ferry every half hour in daytime, taking just 3 minutes to cross, and just a 30 minute drive from Oban) but you can still put your watch back 50 years when making the crossing!

Less than 200 metres from the sea with breathtaking views of around a dozen islands, and surrounded by its own beautiful gardens of over an acre, Cullipool House offers the following facilities to the highest of standards:
