This fantastic Victorian property is located on the banks of the beautiful Gare Loch in the pretty village of Garelochhead, within walking distance to the beach and excellent local amenities.

The striking property is nestled in an elevated position with breathtaking sea loch views over the splendid Gare Loch. It is located in the picture-postcard village of Garelochhead, with its excellent amenities and water sports, and train station with direct links to Glasgow. The bustling town of Helensburgh and the picturesque villages of Cove, Clynder, Rosneath, Kilcreggan and Luss are within easy reach. There is a regular passenger ferry from Kilcreggan to Gourock with train links to Glasgow. The immediate area is a paradise for walking and biking with an array of coastal, country and forest trails to explore. Located on the Clyde Sea Loch Trail and within easy reach of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, the setting is perfect for all outdoor pursuits.

Step from the pretty front garden, with magnificent views over Gare Loch, into the hall of this wonderful Victorian house with an array of period features. The light and bright lounge with bay window is the perfect place to relax and admire the stunning loch views, and on those cooler evenings enjoy cosy nights in front of the roaring open fire, watching a movie on the Smart TV. Adjacent is the lovely dining room with splendid views over the loch, ideal for family gatherings. Next is the well-equipped kitchen with electric range oven with gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine and central island with seating area to enjoy a morning coffee. Then there's the handy utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and direct access out onto the patio with seating area. Completing the ground floor is the stylish bathroom with spacious bath and WC. Heading up the stairs, you will find a study area with desk and four beautiful bedrooms, all with ample storage space. A king-size zip-and link (which can be made into a twin on request) and a double bedroom, both with magnificent sea loch views over Gare Loch. Another king-size zip-and link (which can be made into a twin on request) and double bedroom with views over the rear garden. Finally, completing the accommodation, is the stylish shower room with shower and WC.

Venturing outside to the mature garden with stunning loch views, there is a patio seating area with charcoal BBQ for al fresco dining or lazy evening stargazing, perhaps with a wee dram, nice glass of wine or good local ale. There is a stream at the rear of the garden that it is not fenced off and there is a steep bank behind the house, that is roped off with signs, small children must be supervised.

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.
