Burnlea Cottage is set amid stunningly beautiful scenery in the quiet hamlet of Clachaig in Glen Lean. The restored cottage is spacious and comfortable with four bedrooms.

Like other cottages in the village, it was built in the 19th century to house workers from the nearby Gunpowder Mill, the ruins of which can still be seen in the lower glen. The cottage is situated at the very edge of the village, and boasts superb views of the upper glen and surrounding hills, including the imposing Cruach Neuran. Not far from the foot of the garden runs the Little Eachaig river, which winds its way through the glen.

The cottage is spacious and comfortable, furnishings are traditional country style. Its centrepiece is the large lounge giving you an old worldly feel with beamed ceiling, parquet floor, lovely open fire, and stunning views. There is also a grand piano (available for use by arrangement). The lounge is light and airy in summer—with French windows opening out into the garden—and warm and cosy in winter. There is a separate traditional dining room, four bedrooms with quality linen (one with en suite facilities), kitchen, and bathroom. The cottage is all on one level.

There is a large enclosed garden with wonderful views, with walks for all the family to enjoy. The tranquillity and surrounds will inspire you.

The Argyll and Bute region

The ferry trip across the Firth of Clyde is a fine introduction to the Cowal Peninsula. To the north the mountains surrounding the sea lochs of Long and Goil provide a stunning backdrop as the ferry arrives at the busy town of Dunoon, Cowal's principal community, which has an excellent choice of accommodation, shopping and eating out. Built around two sheltered bays, and with wonderful views over the water, Dunoon is also the seaboard gateway to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

Dunoon is the lively gathering place for the whole Cowal area. The town offers a museum and leisure centre as well as a fascinating selection of craft shops, galleries, and cafes. The opportunity to take a pleasure cruise amidst the breathtaking coastal scenery of the Firth of Clyde should not be missed.


It can be reached from Glasgow in one hour and a half (Glasgow Airport: one hour), including the ferry across the firth. The perfect location for walking (there are many beautiful walks in the area) and wildlife (if you are in luck you may spot a Golden Eagle), as well as all the attractions that Cowal has to offer: castles, gardens, lochs, inns, and restaurants. Ideally located for those who wish to explore the wider region: Loch Striven, Tighnabruaich, Portavadie, Otter Ferry, the Isle of Bute, Loch Eck, Strachur, Inverary are all within easy striking distance.
