House of views

Inspired by the cinematic qualities of the ever changing light over the western sea and islands we have looked to create a unique holiday home with stunning views and an exceptional place to stay in all weather.


Craobh Haven offers access to an incredible diversity of wildlife, watersports, walking and history. Haven House is situated by the Marina and the award winning Lord of the Isles.


Created to offer hotel standards of comfort and style, for families and groups of up to 12. Every room is designed to enjoy views of the mountains and the sea.

With the warming effect of the Gulf Stream the area is known for its gardens. Arduaine Gardens nearby is just one of these special places and especially worth a visit in the spring and early summer.

Carnasserie castle


Carnasserie Castle

Carnasserie Castle was once a fashionable residence incorporating many of the latest Renaissance influences. It was the home of the first Protestant Bishop of the Isles, Master John Carswell, and its design is befitting of a man of his stature. 

A great fun castle with 2 towers, great views and a good walk.

Dunadd Fort

Dunadd Fort rises proudly from Moine Mhor – the ‘great moss’ – an expanse of bog that carpets the southern end of Kilmartin Glen. It was home to a fort 2,000 years ago, and a royal power centre of Gaelic kings in the 500s to 800s AD.

Dining and Drinking Out

Loch Melfort Hotel

Please be aware that as of 2nd March havebeen made aware that the Lord of the Isles will not reopen until a new owner is found. This is very disappointing however there are other excellent locations - we particularly recomment the Loch Melfort Hotel for an exceptional dinner.
