The property is located on the banks of the Crinan Canal. Opened in 1801, the canal stretches nine miles, from Ardrishaig on Loch Fyne to Crinan on the Sound of Jura, and provides a shortcut from the Firth of Clyde to the Western Isles. There are 15 locks in the nine-mile stretch of water and every year between 2,000 and 3,000 vessels, mostly pleasure craft, use the canal. Four of the locks are at Cairnbaan and it is at this point that the canal reaches its summit of 68 feet above sea level. Moorings are offered on the canal and the established boating centers of Crinan, Tayvallich, Ardfern and Craobh Haven are all within easy reach. Cairnbaan is not only notable for its breathtaking scenery but also for the Cairnbaan Hotel and Crinan Hotel which take full advantage of this wonderful scenery.
Lochgilphead (3 miles) is the main centre of mid Argyll and offers a variety of amenities and shops including a sports centre, hospital, library and the main primary and secondary schools. The headquarters of Argyll and Bute Council are also in Lochgilphead. The surrounding area offers some of Scotland's prettiest walks, pre-historic sites in Kilmartin Glen, challenging climbing, excellent fishing and, of course, testing sailing waters.
