The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
The Cowal Peninsula, in the Argyll and Bute Area is one of Scotland's undiscovered treasures. Rugged hills, lochs and glens it has a spectacular landscape. Its mild climate made it very popular with botanists in the 19th Century and there are some spectacular forest plantations and many flowering shrubs such as azaleas and rhodedendron to be enjoyed in spring and summer.
There are many beautiful roads winding through the glens that take you to more lochs and glens... and there are some fine pubs, cafes and restaurants along the way.
Wildlife includes, red deer, seals, porpoises, pinemartens (if you are luck!), golden eagle and a wide variety of seabirds... from the cottage you can see the amazing diving behaviour of gannets - a beautiful white seabird with yellow and blue colouring about its head.
Cowal has a thriving art scene and there are galleries and exhibitions to enjoy throughout the year.
The cottage is located within Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park - Scotland's first national park. The village of Strone is one of several that run along the shores of Holy Loch and Long Long. Built mostly around the 1830's the cottages and grand houses ofthese villages were once the playground of wealthy industrialists from Glasgow and Central Scotland who sailed down the Clyde to visit their holiday homes.
Forest tracks are good for walking or cycling. Winding tracks making going uphill relatively easy and the views from the tops over the Firth of Clyde are stunning whatever time of day. The village of Strone has a shop, post office and public house. The seaside town Dunoon is about 7 miles from the cottage - there are plenty of amenities including two supermarkets, a cinema, a concert hall, specialist shops, cafes and restaurants. Local bus services are very good.
