The property is a family home owned by myself and I manage the letting of the property. My name is Richard Liley and I am an Artist and Tutor.
Why Richard Liley chose Lochgilphead
This is a family home that we had built in the 1980's. My mother's family originated from Largs on the Firth of Clyde and were great sailors. Many of them have ended up in Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. We love Crinan for the peace, the walks and the wildlife and regard it as a very special place.

Thoroughly recommend Yealand House
We had a fantastic holiday here in Scotland. The property is excellent - spacious, clean, has every amenity and lots of character. The views are stunning and although it is peaceful and secluded, it is only a short walk to the harbour or the hotel.
Thank you Linda. I m glad you had a great time and that you enjoyed the house. We try to keep it like a family home.
excellent welcome. very comfortable. great spot
A house with a view
The house has a real family feel, with photos, pictures and books scattered around. The main living space is light and airy because of being double height, with that wonderful view out across to the islands in the centre. Comfortable mattresses, warm duvets but a blackout mask is required since the bedrooms are fairly light in the morning. We also hadn't appreciated that one of the double bedrooms is open above the living area - not a problem for us, but the occupants would have to be the last to go to bed so as not to disturb other people.
Lots of crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware so preparing meals is easy. The fridge is not large and makes a lot of noise at times but kept everything cold.
We didn't go outside much because of the cold wind but the garden was nice to look at, with daffodils and bluebells as well as lots of birdlife.
We managed trips to the nearby beaver loch and to the Neolithic linear cemetery in Kilmartin Glen, where the museum cafe did a warming, tasty soup. The seafood in Crinan Hotel was some of the best we have ever tasted, and all the better for having walked there and not having to worry about getting back in the car.
We are glad you enjoyed your holiday and enjoyed the views from the house.
