This brand-new cabin-style house, situated four miles from the picturesque harbour and sailing village of Tayvallich, is beautifully presented with its modern style and idyllic setting. With impressive large sliding doors, leading to a decking area, which both look out over the sparkling sea loch, it certainly delivers the wow factor.

Reached by a private drive, Keepers Cottage is a cosy, yet spacious, two-bedroom cottage with its own entrance. A ramp into the back hall leads into this single-storey house where the layout is simple, but its appearance is dazzling.

A utility room with washing machine, offers plenty of storage space, and leading from the main hall is the hugely welcoming open plan living, dining and kitchen area. With a trendy, laid-back style, masses of light, and incredible views out over Linne Mhuirich and beyond, it is the heart of this pretty cottage.

The end of the hall comprises two spacious double bedrooms – one king size and one double – although twin beds in the latter are also an option. Each immaculate room offers the calm and comfort required for a good night’s sleep, and next door there is a light and airy shower room.

Outside, the garden is unenclosed, and is separated from the neighbouring Kates Cottage by a beech hedge which provides a real sense of peace and quiet. And the decking area, with seating, is the perfect place to sit back, relax, and enjoy this incredible south-western Highlands location.

With the exceptional scenery of the nearby land and sea at this popular part of Argyll and Bute on its doorstep, Keepers Cottage is a must for anyone looking to unwind, explore and make memories.

Map & Local

With a combination of stunning scenery and island paradises, Argyll and Bute is one of Scotland’s most naturally diverse locations.

From tranquil beaches, dense forests, and endless coastlines, to iconic wildlife, historic castles, adrenaline-pumping adventures and attractions, there are many reasons to visit this west coast gem.

Situated in the heart of Argyll, the charming fishing village of Tayvallech is a popular yachting and kayaking haven. It sits on the shores of Loch Sween which stretches north from the Sound of Jura, in the beautiful unspoilt Knapdale area – which can be found between the town and holiday resort of Lochgilphead, and Tarbert, the main ferry port for Islay and Mull.

With a population of just 300 people, Tayvallich’s pretty cottages line an attractive horseshoe bay, surrounded by richly wooded shores, and it boasts a vibrant community with a general store and shop, café and the Tayvallich Inn, as well as many local artists.

There is a beach just across at Carsaig Bay, Tayvallich’s tiny twin village which faces east and the Sound of Jura – where the views are stunning, especially at sunset.

A must-see near Tayvallich has to be Keills Chapel at Keillmore, situated in a stunning location, it is home to a sculptural feast of almost 40 carved stones, ranging in date from the 8th to the 16th century.

On the eastern shore of Loch Sween stands the impressive remains of the 12th century Castle Sween, thought to be the oldest stone castle on the Scottish mainland. Beyond it, Kilmory Woodland Park offers a collection of historical sites and lochside walks.

And for watersport enthusiasts, there is much to choose from, with boat trips to world’s third-largest whirlpool, snorkelling, scuba diving, surfing, kayak trips and even swimming with basking sharks, to name a few. Children will love hopping on a ferry to explore the islands, or enjoying sheltered sandy beaches with waters warmed by the Gulf Stream.

The area is also a cyclist’s dream, with bike hire based in Tayvallich, as well as kayak hire in the village.

Whether looking for an active getaway, or escaping the hustle and bustle of daily life in beautiful surroundings, this secluded corner of Scotland has it all.
