Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This lovely, detached, single-storey, stone built cottage is snuggled within the pretty hamlet of Ardentinny idyllically situated alongside the glistening waters of Loch Long. Once used as the local community's village hall, Sanna was first constructed during the late 19th century. It has now been tastefully refurbished to provide a perfect holiday base for couples in this gorgeous region of Scotland. The property has off-road parking for one car, is pet friendly and has an enclosed front garden. Internally, the cottage oozes a sense of comfort and easy going ‘holiday atmosphere'. In short, guests will readily feel at home here. There are sold wood floors throughout and guests will greatly appreciate the double sized bedroom's en-suite facilities. Sanna lies within the boundary of the beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and therefore has ready access to fantastic areas for walking, mountain-biking, boating and fishing. In addition, a lovely feature of this property is its proximity to the waterside. An easy stroll of approximately 200 yards will bring guests to the shores of the sea loch- a wonderful way to start the day!

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
This region has a contrasting landscape of lochs, mountains, forests and coastline and it's therefore no coincidence that it's one of the most popular holiday destinations in Scotland. Its popularity is easy to understand when you consider the mouth watering attractions within its boundaries; which include the beautiful Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park in the west and the wonderful forests, mountains and rivers which are characteristic of Tayside and Perthshire to the east. The city of Stirling can also be found in this area, with its rich historical significance in Scottish history and connections to William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. The beautiful and unique coastlines here, both on the west coast and east coast, are ideal holiday destinations. Stretching in the west from Oban in the north down to Strathclyde and the Ayr coast, and in the east the coast extends from Dundee and Angus south the along the Fife coast to Edinburgh.
The property lies within the general area of the Cowal Peninsula. The geographical features of the area – it is bounded by several sea lochs and fringed by the awe-inspiring Arrochar Alps in the north- has given it a perhaps unique culture, history and range of habitats. The wildlife to be found here is astonishingly rich and plentiful. It is for example, one of the best places in Scotland for spotting a cruising basking shark or dolphin. It is a veritable paradise for outdoor enthusiasts with an amazing variety of activities on offer such as quad-biking and clay pigeon shooting. To the north lies the Argyll Forest- a ‘must visit' for walkers. The forest has superb hiking and mountain-biking trails and a number of lovely waterfalls to explore. Walkers who wish to really stretch their legs should sample the newly created Cowal Way. This is a long distance footpath running from Portavadie to Arrochar, a distance of just under fifty miles and climbs in places to over five thousand feet! Plant lovers should visit the number of public gardens located in the area such as Ardkinglas or the Benmore Botanic Gardens with its award-winning avenue of Giant Redwood trees. For a change of scene why not take the ferry to the lovely Island of Bute and visit the architecturally stunning Victorian Gothic Mount Stuart House. The pretty and much-loved holiday town of Dunoon has a good range of shopping and leisure facilities and even has a small cinema. Food lovers must sample the sublime seafood to be had at numerous venues in the Loch Fyne area located to the north.
