Tigh-na-Creige description

In a secluded and tranquil location, with stunning views of Loch Riddon in the Kyles of Bute, this spacious, modernised holiday cottage which meets with an exacting four-star standard, stands in mature, landscaped gardens with its own private beach, two moorings, a reinforced grass slipway, sea views from most rooms and several acres of woodland just north of the village of Colintraive - which faces Bute, the most accessible of the Western Isles. Just 40 miles from Glasgow airport, Tigh-na-Creige is the perfect place to fall off the world. The deep glens and narrow sea lochs are typical of the west coast and there is a huge selection of Scottish wildlife - including deer, seals and birds of prey. The nearby villages of Colintraive and Tighnabruaich lie in the heart of west coast sailing country. The Cowal Gathering, the world’s biggest Highland Games, is held in nearby Dunoon – which also has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. And the beautiful isles of Bute and Arran are easily accessed by ferry or visitors’ own boats. Rothesay on Bute is only 12 miles and offers alternative shops, restaurants and bars as well as visitor attractions, including the renowned Mount Stuart; while Loch Lomond National park is just 15 miles - adding to the cottage’s appeal for walkers and cyclists of all abilities - and boasting breathtaking scenery with dramatic peaks, waterfalls, hidden caves and mysterious forests. However, easy loch-side walks start right outside the door. The nearby scenic viewing platform overlooking the Kyles is renowned as one of the most picturesque in Scotland - and many of the local beaches match this description. The immediate area is packed with more challenging leisure activities - with horse riding, a sailing school, climbing, quad biking, high-speed RIB boat tours, golf and outdoor education centres. Nearby, the magnificent mountainside setting of Benmore Botanic Gardens (Mar-Oct) is well worth a visit. The world famous Loch Fyne is just around the corner, with Portavadie, its amazing marina and the ferry connection to the beautiful fishing port, West Loch Tarbert, a gentle 30-minute drive away. Shop, pub/restaurant 2½ miles. Accommodation on one level. Entrance porch with five steps to the garden (with six steps from the drive to the house). Oak laminate flooring throughout. Large living room with open fire. Large open-plan living/dining area, leading to well-equipped kitchen with a range cooker, door and three steps to the patio area. Master bedroom with 5ft bed.
