About Gruinart Farmhouse, Self Catering:

This new eco-house sleeps up to 12 and is located in one of the most beautiful spots on Islay in the heart of the RSPB reserve at Loch Gruinart. The self catering house enjoys stunning views across Loch Gruinart and over to Oronsay, Colonsay and Mull on a clear day.

The house is constructed from green oak, is super-insulated and has an air-source heat pump feeding its underfloor heating and also produces solar generated electricity. It is designed to take advantage of the glorious views and is a modern, spacious, warm and luxurious holiday retreat.

Gruinart Farmhouse is styled with a blend of stone floor tiles, hardwood floors and cosy carpets in colours that compliment its oak construction and its natural surroundings, and the views that dominate at every turn.

The house is designed around a large open plan kitchen, dining and living area with picture windows extending up to the first floor affording stunning views of Loch Gruinart, surrounding moorland and grazing marshes and across to Jura. The kitchen is modern and exceptionally well equipped with an electric Aga, microwave and wine chiller. More glorious views from the mezzanine sitting room, which overlooks the downstairs living area and also makes an excellent telescope viewing area. The spacious Master bedroom (kingsize) on this floor has high ceilings, a comfortable sofa and an ensuite bathroom with spa bath and shower. There is a large family bathroom with a free-standing bath and separate shower and a further twin bedroom and another double bedroom on this floor.

There is a further Master bedroom with kingsize bed on the second floor. Adjacent is a luxury shower room and a built-in sauna – excellent for soothing those muscles after a long walk. With fabulous views across the sound and beyond, there is an expansive games room/artist studio with table football, table tennis and lots of space for teenagers and others to lounge about. This room sleeps two in adult sized bunk beds and has floor cushions.

The house has large gardens to the front and the rear and yard for parking cars. There is easy access by foot to two hides on the RSPB reserve overlooking the flooded wetland areas only ten minutes from the house and a moorland walk has recently been added which is equally close. You are also just a short drive or cycle ride from the sandy beaches at Ardnave.
