Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages 5
  • No pets allowed

Enjoying an idyllic location close to the shimmering waters of Loch Awe, at twenty-four miles in length Scotland's longest freshwater loch, is the divine New York Cottage; a holiday property that brings guests into the very heart of the sublime Scottish countryside. This detached cottage is sited together with one other property within a shared, mature garden extending to over two acres. The property is set a considerable distance from its neighbour and has direct access to the lochside from where fishing for wild brown trout and the majestic pike is available. The open lochside also lends itself to easy launching for most types of small craft such as a canoe or kayak. The property has a number of features that will delight those lucky enough to stay there. The cosy and comfortable lounge/dining area for example, has a stunning multi-fuel stove, for which coal is supplied, as a focal point and double doors lead on a super sun room which enjoys sublime views over the loch. The cottage has off-road parking for three cars and four bedrooms which can accommodate a maximum of six guests. The views from the property, which enjoys an elevated site, are stunning and these can be enjoyed from the peace and quiet of the garden area which has both garden furniture and a BBQ. The property is not suitable for children under five owing to the adjacent lochside and feeder river flowing through the grounds. New York Cottage can be booked, subject to availability, with the neighbouring property, New York Lodge, to accommodate parties of up to ten guests.

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.


Whilst the location may be secluded the friendly hamlet of Dalvich is only approximately one mile away and has a well stocked store and post office. During the holiday season bar and restaurant facilities are available in the village hall. The immediate area around the property is quite simply a paradise for hill walkers and cyclists. There are an abundance of way-marked routes- the majority through truly glorious scenery- and numerous Munros to conquer. There are no less than seven peaks topping three thousand feet in the nearby Ben Cruachan group of mountains alone! This is an ideal location for exploring the wider region of Argyll which is rich in stunning landscapes and has a mass of ancient and historic monuments to investigate! Travelling further north will bring visitors to the lovely coastal town of Oban. This is an important service centre for the region and has a good range of essential amenities. It is also the departure point for a number of ferries on route to the magical isles of Mull, Iona, Colonsay etc. For a change of scene a visit to the ‘Hollow Mountain' is highly recommended. This is a hydro-electric scheme located at Cruachan, situated at Loch Awe's head. The spectacle and engineering buried deep within the mountain are astonishing and makes for an interesting day out for all ages.
