|A detached old stone cottage standing on its own on a hillside overlooking a loch and hills - car-access to the door - all mod.cons and an open-fire - that is most people's ideal holiday cottage; and such a one is Ardchyline Cottage about 3 miles north of Strachur (hotel/shop) on Loch Fyne, some 17 miles from Inveraray.
Reached via the A815 off the A83 Loch Lomond/ Lochgilphead/Oban road, the cottage is very centrally located offering easy touring to The Mull of Kintyre, the Oban/Fort William areas, Mull, The Road to the Isles, Ardnamurchan and Loch Ness, while, locally, there is trout-fishing on a lochan to the front of the cottage; deep-sea fishing on Loch Fyne; wonderful walking, and bird-watching. The owners can also offer red/roe deer-stalking and shooting, in season, on their 4,000-acre Estate.
There are several pub/restaurants in the area to enjoy. Inveraray offers its Castle, golf-course, and many museums; while Dunoon, 15 miles south, opens up the whole Clyde Coast for exploration.
Heating is by electric central-heating and open-fire. Bed-linen and towels are INCLUDED. Pets are welcome but must be kept on a lead within the Estate. A refundable damage deposit is required.
