Cuilimuich Byre

Tucked away at the end of an access road in the loch side village of Carrick Castle, Cuilimuich Byre is a semi-detached modern conversion attached to the 3 bedroomed Cuilimuich House. Both properties can be hired individually, or you can book the two of them and sleep up to 10 guests. A major feature is the easy access to the walking trails on the Carrick Estate. Head off on the 1 hour circular walk, or plan a longer trek following the routes up to the mountain scenery which is the backdrop to this fjord type loch.

The village is within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. Your first trip to Carrick Castle via a single track road from the Rest-and-be-Thankful will be a memorable one. The village feels, if not a million miles away from the central belt, certainly this is somewhere that you have to make the effort to come to, and it is all the more special for it. Carrick Castle is a place to enjoy picture postcard scenery. At the head of the loch is the village of Lochgoilhead. There you will find an impressive leisure centre, a Costcutter store, places to eat and the local pub at the Goil Inn.
