Description

Situated within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, this spacious lower conversion of a Victorian villa boasts stunning views over the water. Bellevue provides an ideal base from which to relax and explore the spectacular scenery and history of the area. The deep glens and narrow sea lochs are typical of the west coast, and here you can find a huge selection of Scottish wildlife, including red deer and roe deer. The area is also full of history, with standing stones, burial cairns and rock carvings in abundance. The town of Dunoon is within easy reach and has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Take a steamer cruise and explore the hills and lochs of the Cowal Peninsula. There are plenty of outdoor activities on offer, such as golf, sailing, sea fishing, windsurfing, quad bikes, clay shooting and much more. Nearby, the magnificent woodland gardens at Benmore Botanic Gardens are well worth a visit, or if you prefer to leave the car, buses to either Dunoon or Ardentinny stop nearby. Historical Kilmun Church, 2 miles, Ardentinny Beach, Inveraray Jail and castle are also easily accessed and make for great days out. For the less energetic why not relax in the garden and watch the yachts and ferries crossing Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde. Shop and post office 250 yards, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

About the local area

As you travel through Argyll, highland Scotland merges with the Scottish lowlands. In the north of the region is the bustling fishing port of Oban. Surrounded by the sweeping mountains of Lorn this is the ideal base from which to tour the Highlands to the north.

The Isle of Mull is only a short ferry trip away. Mull's capital, Tobermory, is instantly recognised by its famous brightly painted buildings. The island has a fascinating history being once home to the Chief of the Clan MacLean and site of the clan's ancient Duart Castle which has spectacular views from its battlements.

South along the coast are the unspoilt glens and bays of Mid-Argyll and Kintyre and the islands of Islay and Jura which are easily reached by ferry. Visit the whitwashed houses of Inveraray and the turreted Inveraray Castle, home to the Dukes of Argyll. Campbelltown in Kintyre was the scene of Viking repulsions at Saddell Abbey and has some lovely beaches nearby.

The captivating Isle of Bute lies at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, a place of tranquil relaxation with sheltered coves and sandy bays. Ideal for leisurely hiking and easy-going cycling on quiet back roads. Maybe take in the grandeur of Rothesay Castle or Mount Stuart - the House and gardens of the Marquess of Bute.
