Our canalside cottage, our home for much of the year, is good for couples, friends, solos, cyclists, walkers, people wanting to explore Argyll and the West Coast, and for families. The cottage has a real country feel, the garden is enclosed and the house is dog-friendly; an excellent restaurant and bar, a mere 150 metres away. You can while away the days simply watching the world go by on the canal or you can get out and about to enjoy the beauty of Argyll and Scotland's rugged west coast.


The Crinan Canal was opened in 1801 and the cottage was originally built as the lock-keepers' bothy when the boats passing through the canal were towed by horses; the smaller cottage next door was originally the stables. Our cottage has been extended a few times and modernised but retains a great deal of old world charm. It's certainly not a modern semi!

We spent five lovely days in Lock 6 cottage on the Crinan Canal. We loved the area ( we enjoyed the boat trip from Crinan with Sandy from Venture-West and the walks in Killmartin Glen and Knapsdale Forest looking for beavers!). The house was cosy and had all the necessary for a good stay. Thank you Lex and Bendan!

Just as others have said, the cottage is a unique place to stay. Full of charm, and in a beautiful location. Lots of good walks nearby, or you can spend the day watching the boats pass by. Well equipped kitchen with everything you would need, and ample space for lounging.

This place is just delightful. We fell in love with the cottage the moment we arrived. The location is outstanding. Waking up to the sight of boats passing through the lock and along the canal was the best start to a day. The cottage had everything required for our stay. The ease of communication and accessing the cottage was so straightforward and well organised. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area, taking in the breathtaking views and scenery. Coming home to relax and unwind was bliss at the end of our busy days. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We'd love to come stay again!!

This is a beautiful cottage and a really incredible way to get away from city life for a spell. The Cottage is even better than the pictures suggest and its comfy and warm. The canal is gorgeous, the walk along it in both directions is incredible. We saw minks, deer, otters, and all manner of caterpillars and butterflies and little birds we had never seen before. Crinan itself is beautiful and any modern trappings you need can be found at Lochgilphead. Its impossible to express how beautiful it is and how many things there are to see, but all of this is made easier to get your head around by Brendan and Lex who are amazing hosts. There's loads of information on local attractions and they are super helpful without being intrusive. Everyone we met was lovely too. Finally, if you don't want to go anywhere, there is a really friendly hotel serving great food and good beer less than 5 minutes walk away. Search no more, you have found paradise. Thanks a million Lex and Brendan, we loved it!

Resposta de Lex:
Ben & Holly Wow! So pleased you enjoyed your stay and, to be honest, I think we gained almost as much from your visit because it was such a pleasure to assist you with your travel arrangements and help maximise the holiday fun you could have around Lock 6 Cottage. You were the first guests to contact us and ask if it was even possible to visit our area without a car; we enjoyed proving it was possible, it could be so enjoyable and it could be achieved by using public transport all the way from the big smoke of London. Thanks for being up for it and for visiting Lock 6 Cottage. Lex and Brendan

La maison de Lex et Brendan est un enchantement : ravissante et singulière, elle est aménagée avec beaucoup de soins et de goût. Le cadre est magnifique : elle se trouve en bordure du canal de Crinan, ‘Britain’s most beautiful shortcut’ (le plus beau raccourci de Grande-Bretagne), dont la plupart des écluses doivent être manœuvrées manuellement par les équipages. Nous regrettons d'avoir passé si peu de jours ! Les propriétaires sont plus qu’accueillants. A distance, ils nous ont aidé à résoudre rapidement un problème de pneu crevé. Encore merci !

I'm a professional artist and have a small studio space near the canal where I work when in Scotland. My partner Brendan and I, and Flo our cocker spaniel, spend about 5 months of the year at our house in the medieval village of Noyers-sur-Serein in Burgundy, France. We let out our house there for only a few weeks each year when we go travelling around France. Between there, and the beauty of the Crinan Canal and Argyll, I have more than enough inspiration for my work!
