About The Tackroom Cottage

Due to current Covid-19 restrictions we are unfortunately unable to accept bookings for Tackroom Cottage at this time. Once able, we are also planning to make some renovations. Please continue to visit this page for updates and we hope to be able to welcome guests again very soon.

Situated within the Courtyard, opposite Stable Cottage, this property is offered as a self-catering cottage for up to 2 people.

As the name denotes, the cottage was originally the tack room for Cairnsmore Estate Stable Block. Now one of 4 residences within the courtyard, and the second offering holiday accommodation on the Cairnsmore Estate, The Tackroom is an unusual property offering 1-2 people a comfortable and spacious holiday cottage in a peaceful location close to country and coastal pursuits.

The garden is enclosed by stone dykes, offering two small lawned areas and containing a unique pair of granite-columned hay barns, one with BBQ area.
