Description

Situated in a quiet lane not far from the shores of the Holy Loch, this semi-detached house, next to the owner’s home, offers a good base for families and friends wishing to explore the Cowal Peninsula. The town of Dunoon is within easy reach and has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. There is an abundance of outdoor activities on offer with sailing, sea fishing, windsurfing, fast speed RIB boat tours, quad bikes, clay shooting and more. Nearby, the magnificent woodland gardens at Benmore Botanic Gardens are well worth a visit.
Loch Lomond National Park is only a 10-minute drive, making this an ideal area for walkers and cyclists of all abilities. The park boasts a magnificent diversity of scenery with dramatic peaks, waterfalls, hidden caves and mysterious, forest covered slopes.
Excursions on the famous paddle steamer ’Waverley’ are available direct from Dunoon pier up to 5 days each week during the season, and are highly recommended and extremely popular. The Kyles of Bute and Tighnabruaich, with the beautiful sandy beach at Kilbride Bay, should also not be missed. The ’Arrochar Alps’ in northern Cowal offer some of the finest hillwalking in the Southern Highlands, and the Cowal Way (Portavadie-Arrochar) and the walks at Kilmun Arboretum and Loch Eckside are particularly recommended. For the less adventurous, Glen Mhor’s balcony is the perfect place on which to sit and relax, unwind and enjoy a glass of wine or a wee dram! Holy Loch Marina ¼ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

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.
