Prime location on the shores of Loch Fyne. One of two traditional holiday lodges which lies 2 miles south of Ardrishaig and its sister town Lochgilphead in the Heart of Argyll with stunning views and shared hot tub.

This traditional lodge sits in a stunning position on the shore of Loch Fyne. Just metres from the water, it offers peace, tranquillity and superb views, yet is also within easy reach of the amenities in the nearby town of Lochgilphead. It is ideal for a family break on the beautiful Kintyre peninsula.

With its timbered interior, this delightful single-storey lodge is warm and welcoming, with a single open-plan living space that creates a relaxed and airy feel, enhanced by the large windows that allow the light to pour in.

As you enter the lodge you come into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. This lovely living space is perfect for a family, with comfy sofas, and a TV/DVD to keep younger guests entertained. The smart kitchen area is well-equipped for rustling up easy meals and the large table is ideal for family mealtimes or for enjoying board games on rainy days. The three bedrooms – one double, one twin and one bunk – are simply furnished but warm and cosy to ensure a good night’s sleep. The neat bathroom has a shower over bath, hand basin and WC.

Outside, the veranda has seating facing the loch where you can sit and relax with a drink while children play on the grass. On warm days you can go for a paddle at the edge of the loch or enjoy a stroll with the dog. In the evening, fire up the BBQ and have a meal under the stars. The adjacent shared hot tub is available to book with the owner – treat yourself to a leisurely soak. There is plenty of parking space next to the lodge.

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

  • 3 bedrooms - 1 double, 1 twin and 1 room with bunk beds
  • 1 bathroom with shower over bath and seperate WC
  • Kitchen - electric oven and hob, microwave and washing machine
  • Shared housed hot tub with sister lodge - £25 for 2 hours paid and booked with owner locally
  • Electric and heating included
  • Towels available to hire
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • TV/DVD in lounge
  • Shops and restaurant 2 miles away

Just 4 miles from the lodge is the town of Lochgilphead where there are a range of shops to browse and places to eat.

Just south of the town is Ardrishaig (5 miles). This village is home to the southern end of the beautiful Crinan Canal, considered to be one of the prettiest in the UK where you can enjoy walking, cycling or kayaking.

A half-hour drive to the west across the peninsula brings you to Tayvallich (13.5 miles), from where you can catch the passenger ferry to Craighouse – the only village on the Isle of Jura. Watch out for dolphins on the 50-minute trip before enjoying lunch by the harbour.

The picturesque fishing village of Tarbert Loch Fyne (11 miles) is just a 20-minute drive south. Enjoy a fresh seafood meal in one of the pretty harbourside restaurants before climbing up to the ruins of Tarbert Castle to enjoy the stunning views across the loch.

We had a wonderful time here. The kids were safe to explore, the location faultless and the lodge itself was warm and inviting. We saw seals and otters even in late October and had great fun exploring the private cove. An idyllic place to get away from the hussle and bussle of working life and highly recommended.

The location is absolutely fantastic with lovely views of the loch but watching the sun rise is absolutely stunning. It also provides a great base to explore the surrounding area without having to travel too far. Property was able to house 6 people comfortably as stated with facilities to match. Great that dog could roam freely to explore.

Property location is superb for the lochside views alone! The main road behind the property isnt a problem but the lack of a pavement means you need to drive if you want to take the dogs for a longer walk (recommend the canal- takes about an hour). The wildlife is perfect. Had regular sightings of dolphins, seals, loads of seabirds and regular visiRead morets from a friendly family of swans. The bay is superb for kids! Felt relaxed letting them use floats near to the shore. Hide

The location is absolutely wonderful, straight onto the beach. The weather was perfect and we had a BBQ on the beach or sat outside on the verandah. The views over the loch towards Arran are wonderful. The chalet is well equipped and comfortable and certainly roomy enough for us all. There are many places to visit, walking and boat trips. All in alRead morel a great holiday. 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.
