Strathlachlan Lodge Argyle
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
In a tranquil setting amongst spectacular scenery Strathlachlan Lodge is a delightful luxury property of an excellent standard and quality rarely found in holiday rental properties.
There is a great deal of wildlife to see around the Lodge from red deer, grouse, pheasant and different hawks including eagles. If all that sounds too active, just relax on the deck or in the large garden during the day and soak up the scenery and atmosphere. Relax by the log fire in the evening and enjoy the magic of a very special place that will rejuvenate and restore a sense of balance and perspective.
Strathlachlan Lodge is a detached property that sits in its own grounds in the hamlet of Strathlachlan close to Loch Fyne.The lochside is two miles away. The property has an entrance lobby with hallway leading off to all accommodation and has wooden wall panelling throughout in a New England/boathouse style.
The owners bought Strathlachlan Lodge two years ago and have since then completely refurbished the property and have furnished it in a comfortable country style, perfect for family use.

For day trips, within easy reach are Loch Lomond, Oban, Glen Coe and Fort William. Closer by are Inveraray and Tignabruich.
This part of the west coast has an abundance of lochs both sea and fresh water, for fishing, sailing and boating, rivers for canoeists and hills and mountains for walkers and climbers. Golfers are spoilt for choice with many courses within easy reach.
If you prefer closer to home, there are mountain bikes at the Lodge and you could take an easy 10/15 minute cycle along to Inver Cottage restaurant for lunch or dinner, or cycle on round to Newton, an old and very pretty small fishing village where private boat hire can be arranged if you just have to get out on the water! There is also a great deal of wildlife to see around the Lodge from red deer, grouse, pheasant and different hawks including eagles.

If you are looking for a holiday location that has luxurious rustic accommodation, set amongst some of the best of spectacular Scottish scenery, in a completely tranquil and restful setting, a world away from stress and bustle but still close to amenities, Strathlachlan Lodge is the perfect comforting hideaway and one of the very few places that really will match your expectations of how a holiday in Scotland should really be.The local village is Strachur which has a shop/tea room the Clachan pub and the famous Creggins Inn which has a great bar and restaurant.Also 2 miles away is Invercottage seafood restaurant and 20mins drive will take you to the original Loch Fyne Oyster Bar outside Inverary.
