Description

The Coach house is a quaint detached property within the grounds of neighbouring Claremont House, situated in the village of Kilcreggan on the Rosneath Peninsula. The building dates back to the 1800’s and during the Victorian times was used to accommodate the gig driver and his family upstairs, with the horse and gig housed in a stable on the ground floor. The building has been converted to provide accommodation over two floors. On the ground floor there is a kitchen, lounge and dining area. Upstairs has the main bedroom with views out to the sea and a shower room. There are breathtaking views across the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Bute, and the rugged high cuillin of the Isle of Arran. It is only a short stroll to the seafront where you can relax, enjoy the view, perhaps catch a glimpse of some wildlife or watch the ferries and yachts passing by. You are close to all essential amenities, as it is only a gentle walk to the local village shop, post office and the local hotel, with pub and restaurant. With access across the road to the seafront, you could launch a canoe or kayak to explore the coastline. The quiet roads round this peninsula make them ideal for cycling.

About the local area

Much of the history of this area comes from the sea. Kilcreggan Village Pier is the last remaining original Victorian pier on the Clyde, and many of the buildings in the area date back to the same era. The Pier continues to be used; it is the terminus for the three way ferry that links Kilcreggan with Giurock. During the summer months there are weekly departures from Kilcreggan to Dunoon & Rothesay on the historical Waverley Paddle Steamer. The area is a perfect location for the sailing enthusiast. Cove Sailing Club is located 5 minutes away and offers sailing, yachting and canoeing. Loch Long provides fishing for those looking to enjoy a quiet day on the shores or a trip out sea fishing. Locally there are numerous walks suitable for a stroll to more serious hill walking, with access to several Munro’s - forming part of the Arrochar Alps, and Ben Arthur (better known as "The Cobbler"). There are various golf courses to be found in the area, from Loch Lomond to Helensburgh. Helensburgh is the nearest large town and it provides a larger selection of shops and leisure facilities. It is also home to "The Hill House" designed by Charles Rennie MacKintosh, a must to visit for all architectural lovers. Kilcreggan is an ideal location to base yourself to relax or explore the surrounding countryside, including the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
