Ellary & Castle Sween

Ellary Holiday Cottages

Let the journey begin, a world of adventures, relaxation, and memories awaits!

Ellary Holiday Cottages and Chalets

The cottages are all within a stone’s throw of the sea, apart from Cove Cottage which is set up in the hill over Loch Caolisport. They are all detached, standing in their own grounds and allowing you to make the most of the privacy and seclusion of the estate.

Complete with open fires (except Turbine House) and maintained to a high standard, well equipped with all things required to make your stay comfortable – including washing machines, TVs, DVD players. Payphones are provided as there is limited reception on some networks. We get a strong 4G signal on the EE mobile network (which also serves BT/Plusnet…). If you have any special requirements, please do just drop us an email and we can advise which cottage may suit your needs.

All have internet access – this comes via EE’s 4G network, so you just select and purchase the data package you require. In The Lodge & Lochead Cottage there is BT broadband, which is provided free of charge & unlimited (although slow due to our location)


Dogs are very welcome provided the property is left as it is found, with the first staying free of charge and a second charged at £30 per week, or part thereof (normally maximum of 2).

As an eco-friendly business, electricity is charged at cost price for only what you use, and bed linen is not provided – so you need only bring what you use (we do provide duvets, pillows and blankets for every bed).

Guest Reviews

Mehrdad Sheibani Ellary Holiday Cottages reviews:

Beautiful scenery. This is a get away from it all break and just enjoy the peaceful surrounding everywhere you go. We stayed the first week in Aug as a family of 4 and we loved it. Would love to try one of the cottages on our next visit and hopefully not in a too distant future. The staff are kind and very helpful.

Gerald Bowen Ellary Holiday Cottages reviews:

Just got back from an amazing week at Ellary, we stayed in one of the chalets which was well equipped with everything we needed for the week. The main reason we stayed here was the for the location and it did not disappoint! It was incredibly beautiful and we will definitely be returning! Very sad not to be waking up to the stunning sunrise. Thank you all at Ellary for our stay.

Michelle Rock-Davis Ellary Holiday Cottages reviews:

Magical place, our children loved every second - watching the friendly seal, spotting eagles, swimming in the loch, collecting sea glass on the shore. We can't wait to go back.
