New from JULY 2013, Riverside Sheiling South is a one-bedroom lodge in a small development of two in a fantastic Riverside location in the hamlet of Rashfield on the edge of the Argyll Forest Park. Designed and equipped especially for couples of all ages it is the perfect romantic retreat. Cosy and comfortable at night, warm and pleasant with wonderful views in the morning.
The beauty of Rashfield Sheiling South is its proximity to the River Eachaig, which is home to all kinds of birds and wildlife. Roe Deer have been sighted on the river bank, also Otter and Pine Marten. So too the majestic Heron, Wild Ducks and Geese, Dipper and Wagtail and Greater Spotted Woodpecker. Adjacent is an acre of private woodland where rhododendron, wild garlic and bluebell are common. Sit on the decking and enjoy the mountain view across Strath Eachaig.
Nearby, explore the magical Pucks Glen and elevated forest views, or visit the Giant Redwoods in the Benmore Botanical Gardens. The quiet seaside town of Dunoon is just 10 minutes by car with bars, restaurants, swimimming pool and cinema. Various country inns offer good food and loch views.
Full of charm in a wonderful Riverside setting this luxury 'shepherds sheiling' will afford you a truly memorable break away.
A car is recommended to fully appreciate this stunning part of Argyll.

About this location
The Argyll and Bute region
Argyll is situated on the west coast of Scotland, within just an hour's drive from Glasgow, and two hours from Edinburgh. Within Argyll is the Cowal Peninsula, an area known as Argyll's Secret Coast because of its undiscovered charm. You won't find crowds of tourists here, but you will find tranquility and stunning scenery, secluded sandy beaches, rugged hills and ancient forests, a land back in time and rich in archaeology.
Cowal is the ideal holiday location for families and couples. The main town, Dunoon, has many amenities for all ages, and there are opportunities for golf, fishing, horse-riding, mountain-biking, quad biking and stalking. There's magic and mystery at Pucks Glen, and the tall trees of the Benmore Gardens will delight. There are many country inns, restaurants and small cafés to visit. The Cowal area is perfect for adventure, relaxation and romance and for the gathering of those special holiday memories.
Rashfield Sheilings are situated just a short drive from Dunoon, beside the River Eachaig, with views to Strath Eachaig and the hills beyond. Behind the lodges is the Benmore Forest, with the magical Pucks Glen, Black Gates Walk, Kilmun Arboretum and Benmore Botanical Gardens easily accessible. A little to the North is Loch Eck, with the Holy Loch to the South.
The lodge owners live nearby and can personally vouch for the abundance of wildlife seen in the area, including Red and Roe Deer, Red Squirrel, Heron, Oystercatcher, Curlew, and Sparrowhawk, to name but a few. The elusive Pine Martin and Otter have also been sighted.
A little further afield are Old Castle Lachlan, Inveraray Castle and Jail, Auchindrain Rural Life Museum, the gothic mansion of Mount Stuart, the stone circles and cairns of the Kilmartin Glen and the Hollow Mountain.

I stayed here with my Fiancee for 4 days and we had a fantastic time, The cabin was perfect and the log burner was more than enough to keep us warm. We enjoyed the break so much we have booked again for a week in April and are looking forward to arriving and seeing the fantastic view from the cabin and the peace and quiet.
