The kitchen has a sink, worktop space and ample cupboards. Electrical goods include ceramic hob with extractor,and single fan oven below, toaster, kettle, microwave oven with grill, and dishwasher. The fridge / freezer is under the counter, with a smaller fridge section to give more freezer space than the usual small 'Icebox'.

Heating in the studio is via electric panel heaters, a heated towel rail, and the Optiflame fire.

There is a door to the front, with storm porch for storage of coats and footwear. The door from the kitchen opens into the internal passageway, suitable for safe storage of bikes or fishing rods for example. A door to the back yard gives access to the outbuildings which house the washing machine and tumble drier.

Within the village is the Victorian Pier, free to access and great for fishing, and a wee Church bric a brac shop, as well as the Gallery / Fairtrade coffee shop great for drinks, snacks and light meals.. On the edge of the village is Quadmania, who offer a variety of outdoor activities including Quad biking and archery. Lots of walks into the hills or along the shore start right outside the front door.A great golf course is close by in the neighbouring village of Strone and the seaside town of Dunoon is a few miles away.

Location description from owner

The Argyll and Bute region

The Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park was Scotland's first National Park and comprises 720 square miles of beautiful mountains, glens, lochs &tweet islands to explore.

The seaside town of Dunoon is nearby, with places such as Oban, Loch Lomond and Inveraray within easy reach. Throughout the year there are Highland games, walking festivals, artists open studios, open garden events, and boat excursions to make those days out very special.

And when you want to relax,Blairmore is ideally located within the National Park, on the shores of Loch Long, with views of the Loch and the River Clyde.

Blairmore

“The perfect home away from home”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2014

This lovely little flat sitting on the water front at Blairmore was the ideal holiday flat - simply decorated, comfortable bed, great view, excellent kitchen, clothes washer and drier, great shower in bathroom. All the amenities you would wish for at a very reasonable cost. We stayed for ten days and found it easy to travel from Blairmore to surrounding areas including Glasgow, Oban and Kintyre. If you have no car, the bus stop is just across the road. The t-room nearby served the best fruit scones around and the coffee is excellent. We will definitely use this holiday flat again and again.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased you had a lovely time and look forward to your return visit.
