Fabulously luxurious and stylish contemporary property overlooking Loch Long in beautiful Argyllshire. A truly 5-star stay for guests seeking the ultimate in comfort and luxury.

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. Despite its quiet position, it is less than 2 miles to the coastal village of Cove. Guests can also discover the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as nearby Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, both of which have fascinating wildlife and a range of activities on offer.

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. Odd touches of colour and sumptuous fabrics add to the feeling of luxury, as does the eco-friendly underfloor heating. 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).

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.
