Perfect weekend
A lovely house in an amazing location. The house had everything we needed and was full of character. We had lots of communication from Mike which was really helpful and we loved having so many places to explore without needing to drive anywhere. Hopefully we will be back soon!

Weekend break with family
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is huge and accommodated eight of us easily. It is a quirky house with many original features but has all mod cons too. The location at Lock 8 is fabulous and we enjoyed watching the boats going up and down the canal. This is a fantastic area with so much to see and do. I would recommend this property.

Enviable Canalside Location
We booked Shelbourne Lodge on the banks of the Crinan Canal for an extended family break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is located on the banks of the canal and also an easy 10 minutes stroll to the nearby Cairnbaan Hotel. The house boasts a fully equipped kitchen with everything you could need, along with dishwasher, coffee machine etc etc, located adjacent to a large dining room with huge table which is large enough for the whole group who are staying there. Comfortable lounge with wood-burner fire and large TV are also on the ground floor, along with a small double bedroom and adjacent wet floor shower room. A lovely staircase takes you up to the upper floor where there are 4 really nice bedrooms and a further 2 shower rooms. The house is situation in it's own ample grounds with plenty parking for 3 cars. We couldn't fault the property in any way, and it was made all the better by the fantastic weather and tranquil setting of just watching the boats sail by and navigate the locks. Would certainly return if we're looking for another weekend of peace!
