Description

Islands View sits on a hill overlooking the Firth of Clyde, within the village of Innellan and across the roads from woods inhabited by red squirrels. There are views to the north towards Kilcreggan and to the south on a clear day lies the Ailsa Craig. The Firth of Clyde was one of Scotland’s busiest waterways of days gone by, with paddle steamers from Glasgow a regular sight heading for Innellan as well as Dunoon and Rothesay. Today, visitors will regularly see giant cruise ships from far shores drifting past and heading towards Greenock.

Islands View is an extremely comfortable apartment with most rooms on the ground floor and a spacious twin bedroom upstairs. The well-appointed kitchen, equipped with a breakfast bar and separate utility room, is spacious and ideal for cooking for a group of four. The generous living and dining area has an additional sofa bed, and the dining table sits alongside a bay window ensuring that you do not miss the stunning views. There is also a double bedroom and a bathroom. Outside, there is a small courtyard area with garden furniture, and a large porch area allows for the storage of bikes if required.

There is plenty to do in and around Innellan, including the Osbourne and Villagers Royal establishments, which offer great quality Scottish fayre for the culinarians, and many walks surrounding the village and south to Toward, the farthest southerly point of the Cowal Peninsula. There is even horse riding/trekking within a mile, and Dunoon is only 5 miles away. There is excellent local cycling on quiet roads, and more challenging off road mountain biking on forest tracks. Innellan 9-hole golf course is a short walk away, and is open to non-members. In the summer months, the stunning Benmore Botanical gardens are just a 20-minute drive away, while in autumn the Dunoon Gathering is the world’s largest highland games. Beach 3½ miles. Shop 300 yards, pub 500 yards and restaurant 350 yards.

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.
