The Sawmill is a lovely first floor apartment within a woodland setting, located on a quiet back road on the west side of Glendaruel. The property has its own rear level entrance with parking and outdoor seating area, leading onto the back garden with a mill pond, small stream and free range hens. The accommodation comprises of two beautifully co-ordinated bedrooms, a comfortable open plan living space with a large feature window and patio doors, wonderful original beamed high ceiling, lounge area, kitchenette and dining space. This property can also be booked along with the Joiner's Shop to provide accommodation for up to 8 people. There is a connecting internal stair which can be used if both properties are booked together. The apartment dates back to 1907 when it was indeed used as a joiner's shop forming part of the Watermill. The entire property was designed by renowned architect William Leiper as a working mill and housed two families (one upstairs, one down) as well as all the small industrial plant needed for such an operation. The original design enables the modern day accommodation to have a real sense of separation, each element of the building having its own entrance.Read more about Sawmill

Glendaruel is a great location to explore, the surrounding area has sea lochs to investigate, mountains to climb, with an abundance of wildlife and history to delve into. The Argyll Forest is on the doorstep, which is part of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and where there are numerous forest tracks, marked walks, cycle ways and wonderful waterfalls to discover. Explore the new Cowal Way which runs past the house, a long distance walk running from Portavadie to Arrochar. There are many good eateries within easy driving distance where local produce can be sampled. A number of gardens are open to the public including Ardkinglas, Crarae and Benmore Botanic Gardens – which has an avenue of Giant Redwoods.
