March Cottage is a charming 250 year-old detached cottage that stands on the edge of Strachur on the shores of Loch Fyne in Argyll, with just the narrow road to Colintraive between it and the water.

This traditional cottage has been fully refurbished and attractively furnished throughout and is cleverly laid out so the sitting room and double bedroom have beautiful views out over the loch.
The cosy sitting room has a wood-burning stove at its heart, with comfy seating to curl up on around it and a dining table (that folds away neatly) from which to enjoy west-facing views of the sun setting over the loch. The neat kitchen is very well-equipped and has a lovely range cooker, traditional Belfast sink and little bistro table for informal dining.
The cottage is all on one level with a bright and spacious double bedroom and a neat single bedroom, as well as a bathroom with bath and separate walk-in shower and a handy additional WC.
Outside parking is right by the house and there is a pretty patio area that enjoys an expansive view across the loch to Inveraray and the mountains beyond.
Many hours can be happily wiled away admiring the loch with the boats bobbing in the distance and the play of light on the water, but there is also much to do in this area of outstanding natural beauty.
There is plenty of wildlife to keep an eye out for with diving gannets, eider ducks, dolphins and even basking sharks often being spotted. Scuba diving is available in Loch Fyne and boat trips run out so you can explore it further, or even head out to the islands of Islay and Jura.
The cottage is on the edge of the Argyll Forest Park and there is good walking in the woods and hills round about. Strachur is in easy walking distance and has a bar and restaurant, an excellent post office with a little shop and café and a petrol station (which supplies logs).
The widely acclaimed Inver Restaurant is just a 10 minute drive away at Strachlachan. Heading south towards Dunoon are the Benmore Botanic Gardens and magical Puck's Glen that are well worth a visit. Dunoon (19 miles) has plenty of shops, supermarkets and a leisure centre. Ferries run from Hunters Quay over to Gourock, providing another easy way of getting to the cottage from Glasgow (55 miles), Prestwick or Ayrshire.
A ferry service runs from Colintraive (21 miles) across to the Isle of Bute, where you can take in the resort of Rothesay and the magnificent house and gardens of Mount Stuart. The crossing takes just 5 minutes, in fact, cattle used to be swum from the island over to the mainland in the past!
