Description

In the heart of Argyll, one of the most picturesque parts of the West Highlands surrounded by mountains and forest, nestling on the side of Loch Fyne, Strathlachan is a tiny hamlet of five cottages reached by a single track road. If you are looking for a holiday location that has fabulous rustic accommodation, set amongst spectacular Scottish scenery, in a tranquil and stress free setting but still close to amenities, Strathlachlan Lodge is the perfect hideaway and one of the very few places that really will match your expectations of how a holiday in Scotland should really be. This spacious modernised cottage is set in forested surroundings with stunning views all around. It stands in its own mature landscaped gardens with three terraces, various sitting areas and private car park. With diverse scenery from mountains, glens and ancient woodlands to fresh water and sea lochs, there is a wide range of sporting and leisure pastimes which can be enjoyed in the area. If a more relaxing pace is desired, just touring around enjoying the dramatic scenery is a great way to experience Argyll and the huge number of places to visit, from small villages to castles and a wide selection of pubs, tea rooms and restaurants where fresh local produce can be enjoyed. For day trips, within easy reach are Loch Lomond, Oban, Glencoe and Fort William. Closer by are Inveraray and Tignabruich. Shop 4 miles, pub/restaurant 2 miles.

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.
