Originally built to provide power to Ellary Estate, the Turbine House was converted to a cosy 1 bedroom holiday home ideal for couples. A very private and beautiful spot located a few hundred yards up the Ellary burn from the shore.

Ellary and Castle Sween Estates is at Lochgilphead, Argyll on the Scottish West Coast and lies between Lochs Sween and Caolisport.

The shoreline is made up of many little inlets, small islands, rocky coastline with lovely sandy beaches. A self catering holiday here offers a wonderful and relaxing location for couples, families and the adventurous too. There is much to explore along the coastline but with two large private estates covering over 15,000 acres there are great walks, pretty glens and many excellent trout lochs. Cyclists and mountain bikers will be spoilt for choice on the many quiet roads, tracks and trails. Keen anglers will enjoy fly fishing at Lochead Burn with both salmon and sea trout in abundance.
