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.

Indulge in a romantic retreat for two in this tranquil former croft cottage or share special time with friends, set right at the heart of a Scottish glen. Relax to a backdrop of spectacular views of Loch Awe and Ben Cruachan or venture out to enjoy mountain and riverside walks. Fish in Loch Awe or take a boat out on the water. Walk past the stunning ruins of Kilchurn Castle, standing guard over the great watery expanse. Drive 23 miles into Oban, with its shops and leisure facilities, and then explore the western coast of Scotland. Head 12 miles in the other direction to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

Awake to the sight of deer grazing close by, open the doors from either of of the stylish bedrooms and step out onto the balcony, with its glass balustrade. Prepare breakfast in the kitchen/diner and enjoy it either at the table inside or out on the balcony as you continue to wildlife watch. Settle down for the evening in ther inviting lounge, where you can light the open fire and watch TV. Find a little privacy in the reading room, where there is another TV and where a sofa bed can be made up by arrangement for an additional guest. Relax in the walk-in waterfall shower after a long day of walking.

Savour the seclusion of the setting by spending time out in the large enclosed garden. Please keep an eye on children at all times as there is a fast-flowing burn here. Enjoy a BBQ as dusk falls and make the most of the opportunity for a little star-gazing.

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.

The cottage has only recently been renovated and it has been finished to a very high standard. From the kitchen appliances to the bedding you could tell it was all excellent quality. We were met by Peter and he was very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. We loved the location although a car is a necessity. We did some nice walks from theRead more house and saw loads of wildlife. We enjoyed a visit to Oban & the HEP visitor centre. We would thoroughly recommend a boat trip with Coastal Connections, we went from Oban to Tobermory. We also had two good meals at The Cruachan Inn. Although a very long journey for us we hope to be back at some point. Hide
