Description

Newton Cottage South is a traditional terraced cottage dating back to the 1850s. Previously owned by the Duke of Argyll, its front window looks straight out onto the loch, with sweeping views of the hills to the north, east and south. With its breathtaking views across Loch Fyne to the Arrochar Alps, the cottage is located within a short walking distance of the town centre. Fully renovated in 2021 by its new owners, this seafront cottage has a cosy downstairs living room, with a small dining area and French doors leading to the spacious back garden. The centrepiece of the living room is the cheerful open fire set in a delightful antique fireplace. Upstairs are two inviting double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The rear bedroom has views over the garden, while the front bedroom has majestic views over Loch Fyne to the hills on the other side of the sea loch. When you wake in the morning you can enjoy the impressive views and bird life without getting out of your cosy bed. Both bedrooms are stylishly decorated, ideal for a romantic retreat.
The garden is sheltered on three sides by high walls, including a historic stone-built barn. The garden offers a great play area for children and, is ideal for barbeques, sun-bathing and listening to the birdsong. There is a parking area at the top end of the garden and an outhouse where bikes, canoes and kayaks can be stored.

Set in parkland on the edge of the town, Inveraray Castle (the seat of the Duke of Argyll) welcomes visitors to tour the castle or the extensive grounds where the river Aray pours down from the hills, past the castle and into the sea loch. At the right time of year you can watch salmon leap over the falls on their way upstream.

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.
