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.
