Our stables takes its name from the nearby site of special interest also situated in the tranquility of Glen Finart and is also within walking distance of Ardentinny beach on the shores of Loch Long. There are a couple of hotels in the village but no shops. The village is served by a regular bus service to the nearest town of Dunoon. This area of Argyll has a rich history and is home to Benmore Botanical Gardens. There are many forest tracks offering the walker or cyclist many beautiful views.

The host has been vegan since 2012 and was previously a Equine Assisted Therapist, helping offers fellow vegans caravan accommodation with or without meals in return for help on and around their family run horse livery yard. This may involve handling and care of horses, mucking out, fixing or building, painting, clearing ditches, other maintenance or helping in garden or polytunnel where vegetables are grown. No riding of the horses is involved but helpers may be interested in the human horse relationship. There are also rescue dogs on site but involvement or contact with these is dependent on helpers previous experience with animals who have suffered trauma.
This opportunity may best suit someone who enjoys outdoor pursuits, physical work and contact with nature.
Please feel free to contact by email for further information.
Helpers must be vegan.
