  • Attractive Argyll crofters' cottage in serene rural setting
  • Panoramic glen and mountain views all around
  • Light, modern interior and superb balcony with glass balustrade
Property code: CA379

Surrounded by breath-taking scenery, this renovated West Highland cottage is the perfect place to escape from it all, embark on walks from your door and explore this corner of Argyll.

Close to the northern shores of Loch Awe down a single-track road, this traditional croft cottage sleeps four and is an idyllic rural retreat for a family holiday. From the cottage there are views to Ben Cruachan, Argyll’s highest mountain, and you may spot red and roe deer from the windows. It’s also only 1 mile from the village of Dalmally, where you can stock up on supplies at the local shop.

Four steps up to the main door, and you’re inside this single-storey property. It’s a real home away from home, decorated and furnished in warm earthy tones and cool neutrals, with plenty of space for a family of four. After a day exploring the Scottish countryside, return to the property to enjoy a soothing soak in the walk-in waterfall shower. Once you’re refreshed, cook up a storm in the kitchen/diner, which is well-equipped and bright with patio doors opening onto a stunning view to the mountains. When the family has eaten, move to the lounge and light the open fire for a cosy night in together. There’s also a second TV/reading room, perfect for children who want a space of their own to curl up in.

Get ready for bed, and while the younger guests get settled into their twin beds, you can be at ease in the dual-aspect double. A lovely outside space is the glass-fronted terrace, which both bedrooms have direct access to through their French doors. Sit out with a hot drink at night and stargaze when the night sky is clear of cloud. The patio is great for al fresco dining, and there’s an enclosed garden with large lawn area which surrounds the property. Within the garden there is a fast-flowing burn, so please make sure young children are supervised.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Nearby family-friendly attractions range from historical fortresses to feats of engineering. Visit the dramatic ruins of Kilchurn Castle (3 miles), which resides by the shore of Loch Awe, and once you've thoroughly explored it is a great place for a picnic. Cruachan Visitor Centre (6.5 miles) and The Hollow Mountain is an experience for the whole family to marvel at as you learn about the science of the hydro power station and take a guided tour underground. Further north is the Bonawe Historic Iron Furnace (13 miles) for history lovers, and from there you can continue on to Oban (24 miles). As well as shopping and eating out, there's the promenade, a granite tower, and a small museum to see while you're in town. Heading east from the property, you're within driving distance of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park; you can be inside its border in 12.5 miles. If you're a keen walker there are trails galore: join the West Highland Way at Tyndrum or try the Gruffalo Trail for kids. The Trossachs National Park is also full of beauty spots, including the Falls of Falloch (21.5 miles), a popular 30ft waterfall.

Croft Cottage was in an idyllic location, with great views over the surrounding countryside and the Dalmally horseshoe as a back drop.

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.
