Merlin, 4 Star, Sleeps up to 4
Merlin Cottage is a delightful, 19th century cottage that in days passed was the Pig byre to Portnellan Farm. Nowadays, Merlin is fully upgraded to a Visitscotland 4 star holiday cottage.
Located in Portnellan's private courtyard with views across the lambing meadow to the Loch and River Dochart, this topsy turvy (living quarters upstairs, sleeping quarters downstairs) this semi detached cottage has had a recent interior refurbishment to include redecorated walls, doors and ceilings, low energy LED lighting, new mega flow hot water system and new carpets.
You enter Merlin from Portnellan's private courtyard into a stone built porch area where your garden furniture is stored. To the left and right are the bedrooms and bathroom. One double and one twin. One bathroom with a bath and an overhead shower. Stairs lead to an upstairs landing. To the left is a fully fitted modern hand built Cherry wood kitchen with all modern conveniences including washer/dryer, dishwasher, NEFF ceramic, fridge, hob, oven and combination microwave.

Upstairs with views across the lambing field across to the river and Loch Dochart where you can explore the island with its very own castle ruin. The property is fully double glazed with low energy electric heating throughout.
You can really experience living in this truely Scottish cottage, complete with 3 feet thick stone walls and all the comforts and conveniences of your own home.
