Couples and small families looking for a real retreat will love this perfectly renovated two-bedroom croft set in an enclosed garden with fantastic countryside views over Loch Fyne.

In a fabulous position overlooking Loch Fyne, this traditional Argyll croft offers a true escape from the daily grind. Ideal for couples or small families, it offers a safe and secluded location away from busy roads with wonderful walks all around. With a warming wood burner for the winter and a sunny conservatory that opens onto the garden for the warm summer months, this is a fantastic family bolthole for year-round getaways.

Inside, this charming property is a delightful blend of pine woodwork and sunny yellow walls. Despite its cosy size, it is light and airy throughout with plenty of windows to make the most of those spectacular views.

A porch welcomes you into this cottage and provides a useful space to hang coats and store muddy boots after a long walk. Rustle up delicious meals in the galley kitchen, which is fitted with pine units, marble worktops and pine floorboards that continue throughout the property. Once prepared, enjoy meals at the good-sized table in the lounge/diner, before hunkering down in the lounge area beyond. Here, invitingly plump sofas surround a wood burner, creating the perfect space to curl up with a good book from the shelf or unwind in front of the TV. In the afternoons, there's no better place to relax than in the sunny conservatory, which affords panoramic views of the water and mountains beyond.

Upstairs, the inviting bedrooms are located in the eaves of this cottage, with Velux windows that provide light and views.

Outside, a large walled terrace with garden furniture looks out over rolling countryside to the water below; the perfect spot for enjoying an al fresco meal.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Glorious views, remote, comfortable. Sheep, partridges, pheasants, rabbits, buzzards and deer are the only company!

This is a very nice cottage in a really quiet part of the world. The views from the conservatory over Loch Fyne and surrounding countryside is breathtaking. We really appreciated the wood burning stove and the huge enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. The only down side is the downstairs bathroom, which might be an issue for some .

Lovely cottage in a stunning location. Great walks all around. Only company we saw were the sheep. Dog loved the secure garden & barking at the sheep.

It was perfekt!! The view is fantastic and we really enjoyed the seclusion there. The starry sky at night was breathtaking. Perfect for people with a dog because the garden is completely fenced. The house is very well equipped. The only thing we missed then was a warm blanket for the couch. We were so excited that we booked the house for next year Read moredirectly again Hide

Inveryne cottage sits high above Loch Fyne with views across to the Mull of Kintyre (on days it's not raining!). Though once almost derelict, it is now a snug, tastefully decorated home-from-home with everything you might need for a most relaxing stay. With gentle walks from the front door and trips to various beaches (Kilbride at the very bottom oRead moref this peninsula has spectacular views over Arran to the south) and woodland walks, it is easy to while away the time. There are plenty of good restaurants in the vicinity, from the famous Oystercatcher back towards Otter Ferry to Botanica in Tighnabruach (though sadly they had to take delayed delivery of a new oven on the day we planned to go) and we can also recommend the Shinty Bar in the Royal Hotel, Tighnabruach, who have a new chef providing some really excellent pub food. We were very unlucky with the weather - wall-to-wall rain apart from a spectacularly warm and sunny Wednesday - but still enjoyed ourselves. The peninsula as a whole does not get great internet, but we knew that before we started. Hide

It's so good to find a cottage with a bit if character. Inveryne Cottage has everything you need and is extremely comfortable to stay in. It is probably the first time we have stayed in a cottage with a genuinely secure garden - so the dog enjoyed himself as well!

The cottage had a cosy feel, with stunning views from the garden the conservatory and the bedrooms. Most things were provided to be able to self cater. You need to buy all your food beforehand due the secluded location.

There are some good restaurants within a short drive from the cottage the oystercatcher was amazing fabulous food and a warm friendly welcome from the staff. Our biggest disappointment was that the cottage is advertised as having a tennis court which attracted us to book however the tennis court is almost nonexistent there is a rusted metal frame around an area overgrown grass and moss through some old tarmac, there is no net and sheep use the area for grazing. Otherwise everything was as described. Hide

Myself and my wife love the outdoors and the two dogs are pretty keen on it too and the location allowed this with great access to any of Argyll in addition to the multiple ways you can walk around the estate fields with access to two bays. The cottage location is excellent with fantastic views across Loch Fyne that can been viewed from the cottageRead more sun room for sunset. When in we spent most of our time in the sun room. The cottage it's self is very well equipped and is ideal for a small family or a couple. The cottage is completely dog friendly with hard floors throughout the downstairs. One thing that would have been useful especially in the winter months would be an external tap and hose to wash the dogs and boots down. There are a few lovely places to eat only a short drive away. The Oystercatcher was our favourite which was fantastic for seafood and it had great views across the Loch. They also have a great selection of Scottish gins. Highly recommended. Hide

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.
