Cosy hideaway in the lovely village of Blairmore, located on Loch Long. Perfect romantic escape for a couple looking to enjoy the beaches, history, leisure activities and explore the great outdoors that Argyll has to offer.

This romantic bolthole is set on the edge of Loch Long, on the Cowal Peninsula, providing you with endless walking opportunities and a whole host of outdoor activities. Enjoy diving or fishing out on the water or pull on your hiking boots and take on one of the surrounding Munros. The cosy property sleeps two guests and also welcomes one canine companion. After a long walk, return to your waterside hideaway to enjoy a relaxing glass of wine on the deck overlooking the loch.

The warm and inviting lodge has underfloor heating throughout and has a homely feel, with cute accessories and artwork adorning the walls. Neutral tones create a calm environment and flashes of colour in the soft furnishings bring each area to life.

Enter the property into the hallway, where you can store your boots and coats, and into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Snuggle together on the plump sofa to watch TV, after enjoying a romantic meal for two in the dining area. The kitchen area has been carefully configured and includes a small electric hot plate and microwave oven, so you can rustle up tasty breakfasts and light bites. When the day is done, retire to the relaxing bedroom with its inviting sleigh bed. The property also has a stylish shower room.

Patio doors from the living area lead out onto the beautiful decked area, which boasts magnificent views over the water. Fire up the BBQ for an evening of al fresco dining under the stars, whilst your four-legged friend plays on the adjacent lawn. Private parking for two cars is available on the shared drive.

Located right in the heart of Argyll Forest Park, the scenery surrounding the property is truly breathtaking and you’ll be inspired to get outdoors and explore.

Wander down to the shores of Loch Long, where you can enjoy a peaceful pre-breakfast stroll along the water’s edge, or a spot of fishing for your supper. The area is also popular with divers, who flock to the area to explore the loch’s rocky reefs and silty bottom, along with the vast array of local wildlife.

Walkers and climbers will be in their element, with the heady heights of Beinn Mhor just 11 miles away, providing spectacular views across the Park. Puck’s Glen (5 miles) is another must for keen walkers. Make your way through the deep, wooded gorge, surrounded by towering Douglas firs, to view a series of stunning waterfalls.

Your nearest beach is Lunderston Bay (13 miles), where you’ll find a vast expanse of golden sand. The beach is dog friendly all year and there are some dramatic coastal walks that branch away from the bay.

Heading south, you’ll soon reach the attractive town of Dunoon (9 miles), the main resort on the Cowal Peninsula. Potter along the high street, browsing in the cute boutiques and galleries, before grabbing a coffee and homemade cake in one of the independent cafes. From Dunoon, a short ferry ride takes you to Gourock, meaning you can enjoy a day trip to the lively city of Glasgow.

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.
