INTRODUCTION TO CLADDIE
Although within two delightful hours'
drive of the motorway system, Claddie lies in
at the mouth of a spate salmon burn, surrounded by some
of Scotland's finest
unspoilt scenery - the mountains and
lochs of Argyll. This really is getting away from it all!
A solid stone cottage, it now has
comforts that were unknown to the fishing family of 200
years ago: pine-lined walls and ceilings, mains

pumped from a distant spring. Being out of range of
mobile phone networks, we have
laid a mile of armoured
cable to provide a telephone for your convenience.
