The property

* Superior newly built property completed Spring 2022* Please note that the pictures represent the garden in March 2022. At this point the landscaping had not yet been fully completed, grass seed is to be sown and a lawn area will be there from mid May 2022. Updated pictures will be added later this year. Taigh Rona is a luxurious retreat and has the most enviable position on Luskentyre Bay. It is designed so that the view is maximised whether you are in the main social room or as you move through this house. This is a cleverly planned house in two parts, linked by a glazed multi-function entrance area, with the bedroom wing being accessed through a door which ensures separation from the social space offering peace and restfulness. There are two master bedrooms with ensuite facilities located on the ground floor, each with picture window across the bay. The twin-bedded rooms, upstairs, share a family shower room and on the landing, area is a seating area, a perfect spot to immerse yourself with a riveting read or to absorb the amazing view. Only metres from these windows the tide ebbs and flows twice daily. Whether watching the wide variety of birdlife on the shore, the turquoise blue, sparkling sea against the white shell sand, or the ever-changing weather, what is certain, is that you will be captivated from the start. Walking directly from the house you can climb the hills of Beinn Dhubh and its neighbour Beinn Losgaintir to capture the sensational views beyond. If you are lucky, you may see a golden or even the larger white-tailed eagle soaring in the sky above you. Alternatively, for a more leisurely stroll, explore the shoreline to the huge sand dunes at Luskentyre beach and wander back along the single-track road to the house. Further afield there are plenty more beaches to explore within an hour’s drive including Scarista, Huisinis, Northton, Seilebost and Horgebost. Recently popularised in Peter May’s novelThe Coffin Road which links the golden road on the east side of Harris to the cemetery at Luskentyre. Is a wonderful circular walk of approximately 9 miles for those who enjoy off road walking.

About the location


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, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental.
