LUXE FOR LESS - Bellanoch House in Argyll is a listed gothic property, lovingly brought back to life by Sheina Chiavarini and her Italian husband Andrea. There are only four rooms, and the furniture and paintings around the house have real character. With wonderful views over the Crinan Canal towards the Isle of Mull, the house is minutes from historic Kilmartin Glen and the hill-fort of Dunadd, where Scotland's first kings were crowned. Local seafood, organic beef and delicious cheese are served in the airy dining/sitting room.
