Crinan Ferry

Argyll and Bute

A small picturesque and now rather isolated settlement on a spit of land which extends into inner Loch Crinan on the west coast of Argyll and Bute, Crinan Ferry was the northern terminus of a ferry which crossed the loch until the middle of the 19th century. Crinan House (c.1710) was the home of the tacksman for the Poltalloch Estate and restored in 1976. Other buildings have also been renovated as pretty residential properties, include an Ice House dating from 1833 built with a turf roof to service a nearby salmon fishery which has been converted to a home with a striking glass conservatory, the project featuring on Channel 4 television's Restoration Man in 2010.
