On the picturesque Castleton Estate, Lochgilphead, Argyll and Bute sits Shore Cottage, a beautifully renovated luxury holiday cottage on the banks of Loch Fyne, one of Scotland’s longest sea lochs. Conveniently located just 3 miles from Lochgilphead and just a stone's throw from the loch’s shore.

You are then met with a bright open-plan kitchen dining area that offers the most stunning views over Loch Fyne and the surrounding beauty of the Argyll coast. The galley kitchen has been cleverly designed to make cooking a joy, with a Rangemaster cooker taking centre stage. This fully equipped kitchen leads seamlessly to a stylish dining area with panoramic loch views. From here, French doors lead out on to a patio area, complete with a table for alfresco dining by the water.

The kitchen leads to the living room where you will find a perfect balance between contemporary style and traditional country comforts. Cosy up by the woodburning stove and enjoy the breathtaking views, or step through large French doors on to the patio area to soak up your surroundings.

Shore Cottage provides luxury accommodation for two, featuring an ensuite king-sized double bedroom downstairs, ideal for those with limited mobility. This stylish room offers stunning views and French doors that open on to a patio, and the banks of Loch Fyne. The ensuite shower room features a walk-in shower, and a heated towel rail for added comfort, with additional access from the hall for convenience.

Upstairs, you will find a unique area designed to enhance your stay, with a cosy reading room, and a separate, luxurious large bathroom, complete with a freestanding bath strategically placed so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery while relaxing in the tub. There is a yoga and relaxation space with mats and weights provided in an area separated from the bathing space. At the top of the stairs, a small writing bureau offers more stunning views.

Outside, large, beautifully maintained gardens on the shore of Loch Fyne provide two seating areas, both with stunning views over the loch. This secluded stretch of coast allows you to enjoy peace and tranquillity in this beautiful house and garden. A path from the house leads to the water, perfect for exploring the shoreline and the wider area.

This luxury holiday cottage is the perfect romantic getaway and an ideal base for exploring this beautiful part of Scotland. Whether you are taking leisurely strolls along the rugged Argyll coastline or exploring the area by paddleboard or kayak, Shore Cottage promises a holiday to remember.

Shore cottage has a sister property, Pier Cottage, which is around 150 metres away (but not in sight) making it perfect for larger groups that wish to holiday together while still retaining privacy.

Map & Local

Nearby Lochgilphead, just 3 miles away at the head of Loch Gilp, is the ideal spot for a meal, a drink, or stocking up on essentials while you're out and about. You can enjoy walking, cycling, sailing, wild swimming, kayaking, horse riding, and golf, all in the local vicinity.

The area is famous for its rich and rare wildlife. During the summer months, whales, dolphins, and basking sharks frequently visit the offshore waters. Since 2009, the nearby Knapdale Forest has been home to beavers. On the peninsula, you can spot red squirrels, otters, deer, and a wide variety of bird species. Sightings of sea eagles add to the wonder of this natural sanctuary.

At the Moine Mhòr Nature Reserve, located 10 miles away in the Kilmartin Glen, you'll find a vibrant wetland habitat teeming with mosses, lichens, newts, butterflies, and dragonflies. Rising from the bog is the intriguing Dunadd Fort, a historic site where many ancient Scottish kings have been crowned over the years.

Kilmartin Glen is renowned for having one of the most significant concentrations of Neolithic and Bronze Age remains in Scotland. Kilmartin House Museum is an award winning new museum at Kilmartin itself. The area is rich in archaeological sites, including the Nether Largie Standing Stones, the Temple Wood Stone Circle, and several prehistoric cairns.

On the western side of the peninsula lies Tayvallich (15 miles), a picturesque fishing village. Here, you'll find a charming inn perfectly positioned to overlook the water, specialising in the delicious local seafood that is abundant in the area.

Just over half an hour’s drive away at Kennacraig (21 miles), you can catch a ferry to the beautiful Isle of Islay, Colonsay, or head up to Oban (40 miles) known as the seafood capital of Scotland, and the gateway to the isles. From Oban, additional ferries depart to the more distant islands of the west coast.

Following the coast of Loch Fyne, 30 miles away, you will find Inverary, where you can visit the interesting Inverary Jail and Courthouse. You can also visit the iconic Inverary castle which is a sight to behold with blended elements of Baroque, Gothic and Palladian architecture.
