Property Overview

Kirkland is a timber built lodge on one level, stands in its own woodland garden and has uninterrupted views of Loch Sween. You can launch small boats and canoes from the foreshore, twenty metres from your door. It sleeps 3 plus a cot in two bedrooms but is particularly recommended for couples looking for a romantic getaway. The front of the lodge faces west so the evening sky can be quite spectacular.

Kirkland is a mile and a half south of Seafield Farm which is situated at the head of Loch Sween. Seafield has been our family home and a holiday destination for nearly 100 years. We are fortunate to live in this very beautiful area amongst the hills, woodland, forest and lochs of Knapdale and look forward to sharing it with you. The way of life at Seafield has changed over the years, but it remains a place of great beauty and peacefulness. The pace of life on the West Coast of Scotland is a little slower, the air is fresher and you can walk for miles in stunning scenery without seeing another person.

We were ‘green’ before it was fashionable and this has helped us to continue to improve the facilities for our visitors. Measures in place at Seafield include encouraging our visitors to separate their waste for recycling and composting, using low energy lights and appliances where possible, encouraging non-wasteful use of energy and water and using environmentally friendly and recycled products where appropriate. The log boiler and woodburner provide heat from locally sourced logs. We have installed photovoltaic panels at Seafield and Kirkland to provide some of our electricity. We hope visitors will use local shops and producers as much as possible. None of the measures in place will compromise your comfort in any way. You can borrow bikes to explore the area.

Other accommodation available at this location:
Seafield Byre Cottage - Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms
Seafield Stable Cottage - Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms
