The property

Achaglachgach Cottage sits on the shores of West Loch Tarbert with magnificent views over the sea loch and access to a pebbled beach; the cottage also has a separate garden with seating area. The grounds and walled garden of Achaglachgach Estate are also available for walks. This cottage was renovated to offer a high standard of accommodation for four. The heart of the cottage is the large, open plan, oak-floored living-dining room, with wood burning stove and widescreen television, and a separate fully-equipped kitchen off this room. With underfloor heating in the bathroom and central heating throughout, the cottage is warm year round. A brass king-sized bed and comfortable sofa and armchairs give contemporary comfort, while still retaining the old cottage atmosphere. There is access to the shore, a mooring for small boats and a sandy beach 10 minutes drive away. The sea loch is ideal for kayaking and is a good family cottage, but also a cosy retreat for a couple who want peace and to watch wildlife at close quarters. The old woodlands of this peninsula are rich in bird and small mammal life and offer the chance to wander for miles undisturbed. Tarbert village is a 10 minute drive, with a supermarket, galleries, pubs and seafood restaurants. Exploring the west coast of Argyll will take you through the fascinating Kilmartin area, with standing stones, museum and cafe, and along the Crinan Canal by bike or on foot. Many of our guests have thoroughly enjoyed the sailings to the islands of Ghigha and Jura, which has been one of the highlights of their stay. Whatever you decide to do, returning to Achaglachgach Cottage will always be a warming experience. EPC Rating: Band G

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location

TARBERT

Lochgilphead 14 miles.

Built around an inlet on Loch Fyne, Tarbert has long been both a harbour and a key strategic point in the history of Scotland's rugged West Coast. Tarbert once required three castles to protect it, and the ruins of one of these can still be visited today. Built around the natural harbour, fishing and sailing continue to play an important part in the life of the village. There are many annual events to interest all tastes including the sailing regatta on Loch Fyne, seafood and music festivals. The 87 mile Kintyre Way stretches from Tarbert to the south of the Kintyre Peninsula, and offers walking for all levels and with ferry connections to Islay and Arran, there is simply no better location to relax and explore this rugged and picturesque part of Scotland.

Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, charging for electric cars is not included in the rental.
