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. 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.

"Not recommended"

Although the cottage and the location are excellent, it is very dirty and the the two couches in the lounge are are not fit to sit on, they have put a throw over one to hide the state of it, it is wor… More

Unfortunately, this guest [who was not the person through whom the booking had been made] arrived before the lady who does the 'change-overs' had finished work. It appeared that there may have been some ulterior motive and we would dispute his 'comments' other than that we accept that the sofas, which are in old fashioned classic style, do have slightly wearing arms. However many guests have told us how comfortable they are and how they add to the general 'home from home' relaxed atmosphere which we strive to produce along with the highest standards for a holiday cottage which have been commented on favourably by other reviewers.

"Lovely house in a delightful location"

We stayed in Teal Cottage for New Year 2012-13. We were also lucky enough to be able to have a look around Shelduck Cottage, which belongs to the same delightful owners and is located next door.

Both properties are newly built to high specification. They are ideally located peacefully next to a loch. The cottages are attractively laid out with interiors which are tasteful in colour, design and dotted throughout with luxurious touches such as crisp cotton sheets and thick towels. We loved it.

We spent our days walking alongside the loch, cooking, sightseeing, reading, playing games.....

We were thrilled to find Teal Cottage. It was a wonderful place to see New Year in. We would love to return.
