Description

Enjoying wonderful views across a large garden down to Holy Loch, guests are invited to go down to the beach and use the decking which is partly covered and gives the opportunity to sit next to the water. This detached, single-storey property with its own garden stands in the village of Strone within the Argyll Forest Park, which is part of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Set within its own grounds, it is beautifully furnished and makes a lovely relaxing holiday base. There is a 9-hole golf course in the village and fishing on the loch nearby. Dunoon (10 miles) is a popular holiday resort with many amenities, good sea fishing and ferries to Greenock, from where it is just a short drive to Glasgow. The area boasts a magnificent diversity of scenery, with dramatic peaks, waterfalls, hidden caves and mysterious, forest-covered slopes. Sandy beach 5 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub 10 minutes’ walk.

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.
