The location The North of Cowal is defined by Loch Fyne on the west and Loch Long on the east of Cowal. It is quite distinctively rugged with a feeling of great remoteness, yet easily accessed being just over an hour from Glasgow via the scenic drive along the shores of Loch Lomond and up over the Rest-and-be-Thankful by the Arrochar Alps. The cottage is well placed for enjoying a rural holiday, at the same time as being a relaxing and comfortable base from which to tour the scenic Cowal Peninsula, or further afield to Inveraray, Oban and Glencoe. 3 miles south of Strachur village and just off the road to the Isle of Bute ferry. 3 miles from Inver, a small, characterful restaurant on the shores of Loch Fyne.

Introducing Fyne Byre Cottage Who can resit a barn conversation? Who can resist a barn conversion done my an interior designer? Two years of work has resulted in a thoughtful and beautifully renovated farm building, available from the summer of 2017 as a quality holiday let. You arrive at the cottage via the shared gate with Leanach Farmhouse (not a working farm). Parking to the front of the cottage. BBQ built into the wall. Provide your own charcoal. The cottage is on one level. Ramp access from the parking area. You enter via a porch which open up to the kitchen, dining area and lounge. The open hallway to the bedrooms give the cottage a spacious feel. From the lounge a door takes you to the ‘Secret Garden'. This is where you will be spending most of your time outside. A delight to relax on the raised deck area with views over the fields to the hills. Completely private, no houses, no roads, no traffic – bliss. Don't forget to bring your binoculars to watch the bird life. The lounge has a TV with SKY package, a wood burning stove, logs provided, as well as a large comfortable sofa and a swivel chair. Hardwood flooring throughout the cottage. Decorated with a mix of original paintings and prints, many of which are for sale. Dining table for 6 between the lounge and kitchen. Fully equipped kitchen with all the crockery and utensils you need for a self cater holiday. The owners, Sam & Iain, are nearby in Leanach Farmhouse. Close enough to offer advice on what to see and do in the area, as well as give support if needed. Your privacy is assured respected. Bedrooms & bathrooms Bedroom 1: Made to measure double with stair access to a single bed above. Storage space below the bed. Sleep 3. Bedroom 2: Made to measure king sized bed.

The cabin is nice, but the owners were horrible hosts. We have been to many nice cabins in the area that are also rented by decent people – I suggest you find those instead. See below if you like to know the details of our...More
