About the home
The cottage has great facilities in a stunning location just 100metres from the shore of Loch Fyne. There is a games corner with board games, cards and jigsaws for those inclement evenings. A selection of music, DVDs and books is available. The recently refurbished conservatory offers relaxed dining and relaxation for those "chill" moments.
Nearby are excellent village pubs/restaurants for dining out (5 miles) and close by are interesting towns to discover and explore. Low level walking is available immediately behind the cottage offering hill access, forest walks and exposed traverse walks.
The cottage is ideal for getting away from it all and relaxing. An ideal spot to do nothing and relax or an ideal base for exploring the areas history, hills, lochs and wildlife.

LochView Cottage was the ideal cottage to get it away from it all. Immaculate cottage set in beautiful surroundings; looks right onto Loch Fyne. Well placed for access to Lochgilphead and Inverarary. The accommodation and facilities were first class. Highly recommended.
