Kenmore is a stunning detached self catering property located in the small village of Strachur, which lies on the east shore of Loch Fyne. This holiday house has commanding views over the sea loch and the mountains beyond. The interior of the house is spacious and bright, the rooms are generously sized each tastefully decorated and beautifully coordinated. The lounge has a wonderful open fire, large sofa’s and a big screen TV. French doors lead out onto the decking at the front. The dining room is adjacent to the lounge accessed through glazed double doors. The kitchen is to the rear of the house and has a lovely view over the surrounding fields where sheep and cows may be grazing. Downstairs also has a twin bedroom and cloakroom. Upstairs has a further three bedrooms all with sea views - one twin and two double (one with en suite) plus the main bathroom. The house has off road parking and a large grassy enclosed garden. The  neighbours have hens who love to be fed, so you may be lucky and get a wonderful freshly laid egg or two during your stay! The seafront can be accessed just across the road from the house, where you can fish from the shoreline, or a canoe/kayak could be easily launched. The wildlife locally is fantastic, you could see a variety of bird life, otters have been spotted in the area. Seals are also visitors, as are the gannets which are fabulous to watch dive for their supper. The local village has a number of facilities - including shop/cafe, Inn with bar/restaurant, petrol station, village hall and tennis courts - all within easy walking distance from the house.

About the local area

Strachur is a great location to explore the surrounding area, there are sea lochs, sandy beaches to find, mountains to climb and history to delve into. The Argyll Forest is on your doorstep, which is part of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park where there are numerous woodland tracks, marked walks, cycle ways and wonderful waterfalls all within this area. Explore the new Cowal Way, a long distance walk running from Portavadie to Arrochar. Loch Fyne is famous for its sea food, home to many good eateries all within easy driving distance where you can sample some of this local produce. There are a number of golf courses in the area and various activities such as horse riding, sailing and quad biking. Slightly further afield lies Dunoon which has a good centre for shopping, leisure facilities and cinema. A number of gardens are open to the public including Ardkinglas, Crarae and Benmore Botanic Gardens - which has an avenue of Giant Redwoods. The Isle of Bute is only a short drive and ferry crossing away where you could visit the fabulous Victorian Gothic Mount Stuart House. Inveraray is also a great day out with the Castle, the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll or a visit to 19th century Inveraray Jail which is fun for the whole family. Strachur is a fantastic peaceful and accessible location to relax in but close enough to enjoy local amenities without having to drive.
