We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and hope that our guests will share our aims while staying at Seafield Farm Cottages by using our recycling facilities and by non wasteful use of power and water. This is Scotland - we wear jumpers when it is cool and turn down heating rather than opening the windows. We want you to be comfortable but we don't want to heat Argyll!
Our prices include linen, towels, heating and hot water. Logs for the woodburning stove at Kirkland are provided free of charge from September to May. At other times, heating is by electric convection heaters. There is a nominal allowance of electricity which is never exceeded but is a 'green' measure to encourage non-wasteful use of power. All accommodation is fully equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. We aim to provide a home from home with lots of extra touches to make your stay enjoyable. There are no extra booking fees, agency commission or surcharges when booking directly with Seafield Farm Cottages.

Your hosts at Seafield Farm Cottages are Jane Allan and James Livingston. James is the third generation of Livingstons at Seafield. Retired from the Forestry Commission, he produces firewood and sawn planks from local timber as well as helping to look after the surroundings and maintenance of the cottages. For leisure, he plays bass guitar with a local rock/pop/blues band and enjoys fly fishing. We've been keeping honeybees for about 10 years - a fascinating and absorbing hobby. James is the person to ask about fishing, fungi, bees, wildlife and timber in all their various forms. Jane first visited Seafield as a five year old on holiday with her family and has lived here for over 30 years. Since then, our three sons have grown up here and now grandchildren visit to make sure we don't get too used to the peace and quiet. Running the cottages is my main occuaption but when left to my own devices, I enjoy growing vegetables, baking bread and cakes and making baskets from willow grown at Seafield. Other interests include environmental issues, wild swimming, cycling and walking. Ask Jane about anything to do with the cottages, beavers, basketmaking, bees and general information.
