This exquisite home with stunning views over Loch Long on the Rosneath Peninsula in Argyll will take your breath away. With its large plot, spacious interior and mesmerising panoramas, this property offers families or friends the opportunity to explore this beautiful corner of Scotland whilst staying in luxury.

Stepping inside this fabulous property, you will appreciate the overriding feeling of space. Light floods through the floor-to-ceiling windows, bouncing off the neutral walls and enhancing the natural materials on show.

No expense has been spared in furnishing this property, with top of the range fixtures, fittings and appliances throughout.

On the ground floor, you’ll leave the carport into the hallway with its handy storage. Moving past the wet room and jukebox, you’ll come to the beautiful bespoke kitchen with all the mod-cons. The star of the show is the glass-fronted lounge, where guests will love relaxing at any time of day.

Upstairs, there’s a magnificent super king-size bedroom with its own balcony; a bathroom with a roll-top bath; and a king-size bedroom with wet room. Both bedrooms ooze class and style, making them the ideal place to retire to at the end of the day.

Outside, you can spend time socialising on the terrace and enjoying a BBQ against the stunning backdrop or soaking in the hot tub where you can immerse yourself in the natural beauty.

Situated on the south-west side of the Rosneath Peninsula in Argyll and Bute, the coastal village of Cove has convenient amenities such as a shop, tearoom and pub. Whether you’re into walking, cycling, water sports or fishing, there is a range of activities on offer, particularly at the holiday resort of Rosneath (6 miles).

Being in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there is plenty of stunning scenery to explore on foot, by bike or by boat, with the choice of coastal, forest or countryside routes for all abilities. There are also other sports on offer such as fishing, kayaking, canoeing and climbing. If you’re a Munro-bagger, it’s worth the 23-mile journey to bag Beinn Ime to the north.

If you’re keen to visit the mainland to the south, you can catch the Kilcreggan Ferry between Kilcreggan and Gourock. Once a popular seaside resort for Glaswegians, Gourock has one of three open-air pools in Scotland. The town has a number of shops, eateries and landmarks such as Granny Kempock’s Stone, which is thought to bring good luck.

There are many lochs nearby, including Gare Loch and Loch Goil as well as the more famous Loch Lomond (19 miles). If you’re interested in wildlife, Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre is worth a visit (22 miles).

For those looking for something more cosmopolitan and are happy to travel, Glasgow is 47 miles away. A little closer, and slightly less cosmopolitan, but with plenty of shops and eateries is Helensburgh (16 miles).

The property is highly impressive and everything that it is advertised as (and more). Dripping with high-end fittings, furniture and appliances you'd be hard pressed to find fault with anything. What was extremely impressive was the level of cleanliness: it's rare indeed to find a rental property that feels and looks this immaculate and clean. CommRead moreunication from the owners was first rate. The only thing of note is the slow network which prohibited streaming TV services (SKY is provided though) Hide

This is a fabulous property (the adjective is considered and intentional). The location is gorgeous, uniquely placed on high ground overlooking the confluence of Gare loch, Loch Long and the firth of Clyde, with the looming hills of Argyll in the backdrop.

The owners have spared no expense in doing up this holiday home to a very high standard. Hide
