Description

Fasgadh is a lovely detached bungalow situated in a quiet cul-de-sac within the small, coastal village of Sandbank, which lies on the southern shore of the Holy Loch. This family friendly property is set back from the shoreline but still provides views from all main living areas of the Holy Loch and the hills beyond. The lounge is bright, spacious and the picture window makes an ideal spot for relaxing, enjoying the panorama, or for catching a glimpse of the stunning array of wildlife which includes swans to grey seals. Those with a love of sailing and the water will enjoy watching the boats passing by and the ever changing moods of the sea. The sofa bed in the lounge can sleep an additional two guests and this area can be curtained off from the dining area to afford privacy for additional friends and family. The fully fitted kitchen is well equipped with all modern conveniences and has access through the utility into a private garden area. The bedrooms are beautifully coordinated and the master bedroom has en suite facilities ensuring Fasgah is a suitable choice for the gathering of family and friends alike. The property is equipped with many thoughtful extras, such as high chair, cots, child cutlery/dishes etc and safety covers for power sockets, to make family holidays easy.  With many attractions and activities suited to all weathers within easy reach, it is also an ideal location for family holidays. The open garden has mature trees and apples can be picked in the summer months. Across the road there is open access down to the shore where it is possible to launch a canoe, kayak or sailing dinghy to explore the coastline. Guests are close to essential amenities, as it is only a gentle walk to the local village shop, post office and the local pub and restaurant.
