In a quiet and secluded location, overlooking Loch Etive, this spacious cottage makes the ideal holiday base for exploring Argyll. A spacious detached cottage set in the grounds of the fabulous 18th-century Bonawe House, it is close to the small West Highland village of Taynuilt, just 12 miles from Oban.
Rose Cottage occupies a corner of the courtyard of Bonawe House, surrounded by mature beech trees and gardens. The house and grounds are situated close to Loch Etive and Ben Cruachan, on the edge of the village of Taynuilt. The village is within a 15-minute walk of the cottage and offers a selection of shops, a café and golf course.
Rose Cottage has been carefully renovated by the owners to offer those important modern comforts in a traditional cottage setting. The light and airy living/dining room allows you to enjoy the views beyond. Outside you’ll find a small seating area where you can sit out whilst admiring the scenery and enjoying the tranquillity of the area. The natural and wooded gardens are shared with the other holiday properties with seating areas in front of the property.
