There’s no end of entertainment at this pretty Victorian holiday home, with a private shoreline, boathouse, garden, hot tub, games cabin, and more. It’s a place for all ages to enjoy.

Stay in true luxury at this lochside location, where everything is decorated to the highest standard and top-quality appliances are in abundance throughout. Guests of all ages will want for nothing with a stay in this grand home, and the property is perfectly set out for a family of ten or 12. Young children and older teenagers will all be kept entertained, whilst the adults can enjoy a glass of Scottish whisky in the hot tub.

The home boasts an impeccable decor throughout, with each room adopting a unique theme and colour scheme. Many of the rooms have been decorated with elegant wallpaper, perfectly contrasted with bright splashes of colour. The thoroughly modern home is interspersed with small celebrations of Scottish culture, such as tartan furnishings or mounted deer horns, a reminder of your rural Argyll location.

The heart of the home can be found on the ground floor, in the open-plan kitchen and dining room. To one side, you have a well-equipped kitchen with American-style fridge/freezer, traditional country Aga and even a bread maker for fresh morning baking. To the other side of the room, you can settle at the spacious dining table and enjoy far-reaching views across the loch. Alternatively, more casual breakfasts can be enjoyed in the garden room, also offering wonderful views of the water. Two opulent rooms are perfect for watching TV and relaxing. The first is a traditional drawing room with a wood burner and French doors leading to the garden room, whilst the second is a family room with huge cushy sofas. Both have Sky TV with sports packages included.

All five bedrooms can be found upstairs, and the elevated position ensures each room offers a mesmerising view of the surrounding scenery. The master bedroom is a spacious king-size with a luxury dressing room, and this can be made into a family room by pulling out the two J-beds suitable for younger children. Two of the bedrooms benefit from zip-and-link beds, making them either twin or king-size rooms, and one has a Juliet balcony accessible through French doors. Every bathroom in the house has been renovated to the highest standard and is well-equipped with local hand soaps and shampoos.

This home excels both indoors and out, and plenty of enjoyment can be found outdoors in the summer months. An enclosed garden area is ideal for allowing children to play; a fun fort and five-a-side football goals will keep the young ones entertained for hours. Older kids will love the games cabin featuring a pool table, football table, dartboard and jukebox, and the private hot tub will no doubt be a big hit with every guest. Please note there is a burn and small pond within the garden; young children must be supervised.

If you can tear yourself away from the house, grounds and Lochside, there is plenty to see and do in the local area. Lace up your walking boots for a hike from the front door into the surrounding hills and bag yourself a Munro by reaching the summit of Ben Cruachan and taking in the spectacular views. Stroll or cycle through the towering oaks at Glen Nant National Nature Reserve (6 miles) and picnic by the banks of the River Nant. Spend the day in Oban (19 miles), taking a tour of the whisky distillery and feasting on freshly caught seafood in one of the welcoming restaurants.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
