"Lunga House is a fine old Scottish Country House, originally a 16th century Tower House. Castellated, turreted and set on green lawns amidst tangled woodland. The house benefits from stunning views of the sea stretching from the Corryvreckan to Loch Melford encompassing the islands of Jura, Scarba, Luing, Shuna and beyond to the mountains of Mull."

We'll have exclusive use of Lunga for the duration of the SouthPole-sium: Dining Room, two Lounges, the Ballroom and 13 bedrooms.

Lunga can provide B&B for those who wish it. See further information under Accommodation Options.

Also, have a look at Lunga's website.

Here are some photos I took when visiting in November, 2013:
