Woodsman's Cottage description

Woodsman’s Cottage is a delightful, semi-detached holiday cottage, perfect for friends or family who want to spend time together in this beautiful location. With Loch Eck literally just across the road, and with a private mooring, perfect for small boats and canoeing, and daily fishing permits on the loch (at cost) it’s great for those who want to enjoy the outdoors. Red squirrels and woodpeckers are often seen in the garden. From the front of the house there are spectacular views of the loch and of Beinn Mhor. You can walk from the back garden through the gate (a bit of an adventure!) and along the ridge to Puck’s Glen, a beautiful woodland walk with a charming waterfall, or use the car park nearby. Benmore Botanic Gardens are a short drive away, and another lovely outing could be a visit to Inverary with its famous castle and jail, possibly stopping at Loch Fyne on the way. Oban, Ben Nevis, Glencoe and Fort William are all excellent day trips, or you might like to try a spot of quad biking, about six miles away. The village of Strone is close by and has a 9 hole golf course. Nearby Dunoon is a pretty town with many shops, restaurants, a swimming pool and a cinema, and is known as the ‘gateway to the highlands and islands’. There is good sea fishing. The property is also well situated for those wishing to visit the World’s biggest Highland Games event in Cowal. This annual event is one not to be missed with Highland dancing, pipe bands and plenty of entertainment for all the family.

After exploring the area you can relax in the garden with a glass of wine and admire the view or curl up with a book in front of the wood burning stove. This is a cottage for all seasons. There are stunning local walks and cycle rides in the vicinity, or you could take a trip to the Isle of Bute or the Kyles of Bute. Blairmore and Strone Golf Club (open to all) is about eight miles from the cottage and affords spectacular views across Holy Loch. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
