|Further details outdoors|
Beyond the waterfall boundaries of the natural garden, potter on Inverlounin’s own beach under the watchful eye of the seals or connect with miles of stunning forest and mountain walks plus cycle trails. All this without lifting your car keys. Watersporters can even launch or bring their own craft (mooring available). Boats and tackle can also be hired locally.
Within 2 miles are shops, village pub, restaurants, leisure centre, golf course and riding school. Within 20 lie beautiful Loch Lomond; the Arrochar Alps; historic Inverary Castle; the famous Loch Fyne Seafood and gateway to the world-class Gardens of Argyll.
Whilst the house itself is great it’s the outside that lifts Inverlounin House to the exceptional. The private, south-facing gardens are informal with areas of lawn and shrubs. Lots of nooks and crannies to find a quiet place to relax or have family fun. There are the waterfalls to admire and two direct accesses to the pebble beach.
Paths lead in all directions and you’ll connect in a matter of minutes with the Argyll Forest Park network of short and long-distance walks and cycle routes. If that’s too gentle there are any number of rugged mountains within striking distance.
Want to launch a boat or kayak? Then this is the place. If it’s a larger vessel then 4WD and wet/drysuit needed as it’s a gently shelving beach. A yacht mooring offshore is available for use by arrangement.
For latest prices and availability see our website

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Loch Goil is situated in the Argyll Forest Park, itself part of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Our corner of Argyll is known as the Cowal penisnula.
Cowal’s exceptional natural environment is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, inspiration for artists, a joy for food lovers and a haven for wildlife. Bordered on three sides by spectacular sea lochs and in the north by mountain, forest and glen, Cowal is a peninsula of outstanding scenic beauty and cultural heritage.
Wildlife at Ardgarten, Cowal
Delightful small communities and fine historic properties offer unique visitor attractions, all types of accommodation, excellent hospitality and a very warm welcome.
Cowal is practically undiscovered as the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, yet is little over an hour from Glasgow. Take some time out and escape to this idyllic part of Scotland which is a haven for wildlife and outdoor activities, but also has great accommodation, restaurants, pubs and festivals.
From the house you can join miles of breathtaking mountain and forest trails, many suitable for cycling. Or take to the sea from Inverlounin's own beach.
2km, a short walk or drive takes you to the village of lochgoilhead with shop, post office, 2 pubs, restaurants, boat and bike hire, leisure centre and riding centre.
Within 30km are Loch Lomond; the Arrochar Alps; historic Inverary Castle; the famous Loch Fyne Seafood and gateway to the world-class Gardens of Argyll.

We arrived in the dark after a long and tortuous journey up from Devon. Pulling back the curtains the following morning was a joy to behold. Bright sunshine, blue water and dolphins playing in the loch!
Our holiday was two weeks of 'swallows and amazons', sailing, swimming, canoeing & walking. A wonderful safe environment for children and dogs. After nine years of camping staying in Inverlounin House was the ultimate in luxury!
I would recommend this holiday to anyone who loves the outdoors.

"Excellent hospitality in this comfortable family home."
The house is reached down a long narrow road which skirts the Loch. Even before you reach the front door the magic begins with the waterfall by the gate. Not an artificial garden feature but a force of nature that changes with the weather! The house can boast three waterfalls in the wonderful grounds set against the backdrop of the mountains. The House itself is warm and comfortable. The kitchen has a range cooker, dishwasher and a large fridge freezer. Everything in the kitchen was clean and of a very high quality. Very well equipped here were more than enough dishes, mugs etc. for our party of 6 adults and 2 babies, (3 generations). The bedrooms once again impressed with the high quality of the furnishings, bedlinen, comfort and view. Even though we were a large party we had 3 double beds (one was a superking) there was still extra accommodation for 3 others in the bunk beds and a cabin room.
Being a family although close, we do need some personal space without having to go outside or to our rooms. This was accommodated by a large dining room, large sitting room, cosy study and airy conservatory. I feel that this is important to mention as Scottish weather can be changeable to say the least and outdoor exploration can be a wet affair even if you do want to get away from your nearest and dearest! The log fire however encouraged the the most antisocial of us to cosy up in the rain.
Lovely extra touches included a high chair, travel cot, library and toys and games. Perhaps the highest recommendation I can give is the care and consideration shown by the owners. They phoned on the first evening to ensure that all was as we would expect and that there were no problems. On our final evening another phone call asked how we had enjoyed our stay, asked for feedback and advised use on alternative routes home as there had been a landslide.
I can not recommend this holiday home highly enough. It is however essential that you have a car as it does enjoy a delightfully secluded position.

"One of the best short breaks."
Stepping out of the car on arrival ,on opening the gates we were greated by the sound of the waterfall only feet away from the house and the breathtaking views of the loch. Fantastic location offering high level of comfort for family living, with walking on our doorstep, we all had a great time. With only an hours drive from Glasgow this is the perfect place to recharge the batteries.
