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.

Up to two well behaved dogs welcome, by prior arrangement, £5 per leg. Apart from the great outdoors, they can enjoy the conservatory (next to the study) but are not allowed elsewhere in the house. Dogs in the house or fouling the garden lose you your deposit. Note deer and sheep abundant in surrounding forest.
The Central Scotland / Strathclyde / Argyll and Bute 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.
The Lochgoilhead area
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.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Inverlounin House is at the end of a mile and half of private single track road leading from the village of Lochgoilhead. Dotted along this road are a mixture of fine Victorian houses, many built by the Glasgow merchants, now used as holiday homes or residences.
The last quarter mile of road is for Inverlounin alone. The house is the only thing at the end so the only thing that is likely to bother you is a Red Squirrel.
Open the front door and you could throw a stone in the sea.
Activities near Lochgoilhead

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.
