Inside Sheiling AW
Ardrioch Farm is a cedar wood property on one level, set in an informal garden with lovely views across Loch Cuin, a sea loch, to the hills of Quinnish beyond. The farm is a small croft where sheep graze in the fields around the house and there are 20 acre of deciduous woodland for our guests to enjoy, in which we have had the very rare Large Heath Butterfly.

White-tailed Sea Eagles and Hen Harriers can be seen flying over the hills and woodland at the rear of the farm and we have regular visits to the garden from  a Buzzard and Sparrowhawk. A short walk to the lochside may produce possible Red Deer and Otter as well as breeding ducks and waders.

Ardrioch is situated one mile from the picturesque village of Dervaig, where The Bellachroy Inn serves excellent food. Dervaig Premier  Store and post office is the best food store on the island so you don't need to stock up in advance. 4 miles away lies the beautiful scenic Calgary Bay with its wonderful white shell sand beach, a must stop for any visitors to this magical island. At "Calgary Art in Nature" there is a restaurant for lunches and Art Gallery as well as a lovely woodland walk. ‘Am Birlinn’ restaurant  is just 1 mile away using locally sourced products this also has excellent food. At Croig and Langamull there are lovely walks and beaches.  Tobermory, 9 miles away, is the main town on the island and has a colourful main street and large scenic harbour. Around the main car park is a new marine centre, a whisky distillery and a garage with petrol pumps. Tobermory has an excellent book shop, an arts centre and a super chocolate shop. There are several restaurants, 3 pubs and a great fish and chip van in the town so you won't starve whatever your food preferences.
