A traditional, whitewashed, 250 year old stone cottage which has been completely renovated and refurbished, it stands in some 45 acres of its own grounds, surrounded by bluebell woods, through which sparkle the limpid waters of the loch. Gurgling burns tumble down on either side of the house (care required with young children).

The interior of the cottage is just as enticing as its external setting. The spacious kitchen/dining room has a Chinese slate floor and electric Aga, as well as a conventional electric cooker. With two comfortable sitting rooms there is a plenty of choice of where to relax.

The first is a comfortable L-shaped sitting room which has stripped pine floors and a large open fireplace which conjures up instant visions of cosy evenings in after busy days of walking, sailing or sightseeing. The second generously proportioned, double-height sitting room is very bright and airy. It takes full advantage of the stunning location with the almost full length gable-end windows providing a breathtaking view over the loch. The exposed oak beams add character to the room and the sizeable wood-burning stove ensures its warmth and comfort.

Also on the ground floor, in the sizable extension, is a modern bathroom with bath and shower, a delightful twin bedroom and a double bedroom with en suite shower.

Upstairs, in what is the original part of the property, is a further double bedroom, a twin bedroom and another bathroom with bath and shower. All in all, the space and flexibility offered by the cottage is the perfect match for an area of the west coast that really does offer something for everyone.

Map & Local

The village of Minard, where there is a shop/post office, is just 10 minutes walk along the shore. There is also the Brainport Heritage Trail, a two and a quarter mile woodland walk (where wildlife abounds) which passes close to the house.

The mixed woodland means that the area is particularly rich in a huge variety of birdlife. Bicycles can be hired at Ardrishaig (15 miles).

For more serious shopping than the village shop can provide, Inveraray (all facilities) with its castle, jail and wildlife park, is just 12 miles away to the north, or Lochgilphead, where there is a golf course, is 12 miles to the south.

From Tarbert (26 miles) there are sailings to Lochranza on Arran. The famous Crarae Gardens are just up the road. Also worth visiting is the Crinan Canal, through which boats pass out from the Firth of Clyde to the Atlantic and there are some excellent restaurants in the area. The largest town in the area is Oban (49 miles) the starting point of sailings to Mull and the islands.
