The Argyll and Bute region

Argyll has to be one of the best outdoor activity areas in the UK. We are blessed with a beautiful salmon/ seatrout river, The Ruel, on which we can arrange fishing on a day or weekly permit basis, and we are situated overlooking a glorious sea loch, Loch Riddon, where excellent sea fishing can be arranged from a boat [or you can take a spinning rod to the nearby pier, and catch mackerel and other species from land].

The Loch Riddon Estuary is a Site of Special Scientific Interest [SSSI] with truly amazing flora and fauna within yards of the cottages. The area is also an ornithologist’s dream with numerous waders, wildfowl, eagles, harriers, buzzards and countless small birds all likely to be seen from the sitting room in the cottages. In 2012, a pair of Ospreys were regularly seen in front of the cottage and we hope that next summer they will be nesting in the immediate vicinity. Red squirrels abound in the area, and you may well see otters, seals and even perhaps a pine marten close by.

There are several golf courses within easy distances (See Golf), and top quality stalking for red and roe deer according to season can be arranged locally with experienced stalkers.

Cowal Peninsula

Glendaruel is a natural therapy, a feast for mind and body. You can find places which are completely silent, soaked in tranquillity and visually stunning. You can view nature up close and explore an unspoiled environment. You can take any sort of outdoor activity you fancy and you can enjoy wonderful fresh locally caught and reared food, beautifully prepared. Be part of our community for a while, feel the warmth of new friendship and leave us renewed and refreshed. Here are some truly magical places which we are willing to share with you.

Ostell Bay

This stunning horseshoe bay of golden sands is a spectacular spot to visit. In the summer months the incoming tide warms as it travels across the sands making Ostell Bay a wonderful and safe shallow swimming bay for all the family. Ostell Bay is a fine, unspoilt and accessible example of machair grassland, an eco system that is normally only found in North West Scotland and Ireland and mainly in the outer Hebrides. The Ostell Bay dune system is extensive including marram grass which holds these mobile sands together and encourages soil growth further back in the machair. Plant rarities include fragrant purple orchids, spotted orchids, creeping thyme, red clover, and harebells, which are all good food plants for a wide range of butterflies such as speckled wood, orange tip, red admiral and marsh fritillary. Wildlife includes a nearby otter holt nearby and porpoises can be seen from the beach. Many species of birds thrive on the machair lands including twite, dunlin, redshank, skylark and ringed plover

Glenan Bay

Close to Portavadie where the ferry leaves to cross Loch Fyne is Glenan Bay. The coastal path leads you through fine examples of mid Atlantic oakwoods. The moss covered rocks and caves offer shelter for plants, people and wildlife. Bluebells carpet the ground in springtime, supporting lots of butterflies and there are red squirrels, nightjars and dragonflies in the woods. The path leads to a deserted village that was abandoned following the Highland Clearances. The village has a clear view over Loch Fyne and has a haunting atmosphere, perhaps reflecting that it was one of ‘the crying places’, An Crainalte in Gaelic, where people waved to their loved ones for the last time as they left the area to be transported abroad, never to see them again.

"Scotland at it's perfect best"

The owners were very responsive from the very first contact and made booking a pleasure. The property itself was lovely and even nicer than the photographs. Different styles of furniture blended in together making a lovely, fresh comfortable home away from home. Everything you could hope for was provided throughout the home - especially in the kitchen - but do remember to take your hairdryer. The views and walks locally are stunning and the area has a friendly taxi driver and lots of nice pubs and restaurants. Favourite thing, a deck to sit out on, least favourite - no hanging space for clothes. Normally not a problem but we were going to a wedding and wanted to hang our outfits up, just had to give them a going over with the very good quality iron.

"Location, Sensation, Vacation"

A cracking location to stay right on the shore of the beautiful Loch Riddon by the Kyles of Bute. The brand new cottage was a sensation with excellent design allowing ensuite facilities for every room, comfy beds, excellent heating, great views from the kitchen and dining room as well as plenty of space to relax and enjoy ourselves...Brian the labrador also enjoyed it! We love the West coast of Scotland and this place had everything we like to enjoy fishing (mackerel and even a Pollock), epic walks (360 degree view of whole area from Mull of Kintyre to Mull at very top behind cottage but it is a bit of a scramble), golf and access to quaint villages and the Western Isles. The weather we prepared for was rain and we got sunshine whilst the owners made us very welcome although look out for a visit from their very friendly big black labrador, Tarmigan, at breakfast time Well worth a visit

"Shelduck Cottage - an ideal getaway for peace and quiet with wonderful countryside and scenery on your doorstep"

Shelduck Cottage is a wonderful cottage to stay and form your base in this part of Argyllshire. Beautifully situated at the head of Loch Riddon, it offers a fantastic start to the day to walk the dogs on the estuary. The cottage is beautifully appointed and extremely well thought out with all the amenities. Situated on the Tighnabruaich Road, it is easy to explore further down the coastline or take the short ferry ride from Colintraive to Bute. After a day exploring, what better to come back to the cottage and enjoy a 'dram' or several with the wood stove warming up the lovely lounge. A great place to stay and make your base and Andrew and Sheila Barker are the most welcoming of hosts.
