Description

Situated in a quiet glen within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, this spacious, semi-detached cottage has been renovated to a very good standard, and has stunning views over the hills and glens with numerous walks available direct from the door. The large garden is home to a hot tub, which enjoys open views, and the garden has access to the riverbank.


The Ranch is a fantastic property, a safe place to relax and escape from the trials of everyday life. With the owners living nearby, it’s also in a great location for getting out and exploring the spectacular scenery and history of the area. The deep glens and narrow sea lochs are typical of the west coast, and you can find a huge selection of native Scottish wildlife nearby, such as red deer, roe deer, buzzards and golden eagles to name but a few. The area is also rich in history; standing stones, burial cairns and rock carvings abound.

An abundance of outdoor activities are 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.

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.
