Meadowsweet Bungalow is in Argyll, Scotland, with wonderful views and huge variety of scenery. Comfortable, newly-refurbished self-catering bungalow in spectacular scenery, accessible for wheelchair users, and with specialist equipment for disabled guests.
The self-catering property is nestled in a peaceful location in Kilmartin Glen above the Kintyre peninsula in west Scotland, where you can hear the buzzards and the migrating geese overhead. The wheelchair-friendly bungalow boasts an array of wildlife nearby. From April onwards a cuckoo calls from the nearby woods. Also in summer there is a hare that frequently visits the garden. In between the months of April to September swallows gather on the wires behind the house. The house is located in Moine Mhor, part of Kilmartin Glen. It is close to Crinan, Crinan Canal and Kilmartin, which is known for its award-winning museum and fantastic café.
Activities close by include boat trips, gardens, lochs & coastlines to explore and prehistoric sites to see. The tourist towns of Oban and Inverary are within a short driving distance. Lochgilphead and its excellent shops are five miles away. There is an array of pubs, hotels and restaurants in the area. The surrounding roads are rather quiet and level, meaning that wheelchair users could go out and explore the local area and its wonderful scenery.
Meadowsweet provides all the things that you need for your stay, including all bed linen and towels, heating and a wood-burning stove for the cold nights. We have even provided towels to dry dogs, if you have one with you.
The information folder in the house tells you a lot of things you may need to know, including the location of nearest shops, doctors and dentists. Look in here for information on use of the hoist. There is also a box of information on local things to see and do, and accessible restaurants to visit.
