Finchairn Cottage description

Ederline is a family owned working hill farm of around 13,000 acres of some of the most breathtaking scenery in Argyle and Bute. Finchairn Cottage (ref UKC1707) is a secluded cottage completely on its own in an elevated position overlooking Lock Awe. Situated in a truly get away from it all location, about a mile along a farm track, with wonderful views of the open hills. South Lodge (ref UKC1708) is a real ‘home from home’, nestled into the side of the woods, in an elevated position, looking out over to the main estate house, with the loch and hills beyond. The School House (ref UKC1709) was originally the dwelling for the school mistress and is situated on the estate at the edge of Ford village. The school playground is now a large garden which is mostly lawn, with a Haha dropping down to a quiet country lane.
This beautiful estate has woodland, moors stretching into the distance and 22 lochs, all with wild brown trout, and you are welcome to try your hand at fly fishing, while on Loch Ederline you can fish for pike, perch and roach. This area is well known for its wildlife, with red and roe deer, pine martens, foxes, the famous Scottish wildcat, otters and red squirrels often seen. There are also sightings of golden eagles and ospreys which make their nests on the estate. Guests are welcome to wander and explore the estate to their hearts delight in this ever changing landscape of outstanding natural beauty.
