Cairnbaan is a small and charming west coast hamlet which is situated almost equidistant between the town of Lochgilphead and the picturesque village of Crinan with its little harbour, canal basin and anchorage. Crinan forms the western sea end of the Crinan Canal and in the summer months the canal is always a colourful spectacle with passing yachting, cruising and pleasure craft as they navigate the canal waterway to connect the inland sea lochs, the Clyde estuary and the Kyles of Bute with the more testing and scenically spectacular sailing waters of the western Isles.

The area is well known for its dramatic and natural scenic beauty and this has always drawn people to the area making it a popular tourist destination.

Lochgilphead (2.5 miles) has a good range of local shops, a mid sized Co-op supermarket and amenities that adequately cater for everyday needs and requirements with further shopping including a Tesco supermarket available at Oban, it is possible to arrange grocery deliveries from both the co-op and Tesco. Glasgow is the nearest major city and has a complete and extensive range of shopping, cultural, higher educational and leisure services normally associated with a major centre. Lochgilphead has both primary and secondary schooling with a school bus service which is also a service bus.

The area offers a fine range of relaxing outdoor pursuits with pleasant canal-side walks, cycle paths and more testing hill walks. Field sports are available in the area and include stalking, driven and walked up shooting as well as fishing, both sea and inland hill loch. The Mid Argyll swimming pool is in Lochgilphead. A local bus service provides a local and city service and the nearest main line rail station is at Oban.
