Introducing The Saw Mill

The Water Mill, built in 1905 to service the grain on what was the Glendaruel Estate, and subsequently used as a Saw Mill, has been tastefully converted over the years while still retaining its character. Now used as a quality B&B and two self catering options: The Saw Mill and The Joiner’s Shop.

Location description from manager

The Cowal Peninsula region

Glendaruel is in the heart of the Cowal Peninsula which is a scenic area made up of sea and inland lochs, mountains, pretty villages and quiet touring roads. A superb area for walking with many marked trails to enjoy the bird and wildlife. Attractions and places to visit include Castles, Gardens, Visitor Attractions, Restaurants and Pubs. Wonderful driving to the viewpoint of the Kyles of Bute near Tighnabruaich as well as slightly further afield to Inveraray, Oban and Glencoe. Talk to us about what you ant to see and we will make sure you make the most of your time with us.

Glendaruel

The Sawmill is on the route of The Cowal Way long distance path and is a good base for walkers.

Glendaruel has a fascinating history. The old name of the Glen is Glenduisk, meaning "The Glen of Blackwater". Around the year 1110, a battle was fought between Mekan, King of Norway and son of Magnus Barefoot, and the Gaels, in which the invaders were defeated and the slaughtered were thrown into the River Ruail or "Ruel", Glen-da-Ruail (Glen of red blood). The Clachan, Glenderwell or Glendaruel was Anglicised to the name we know as Glendaruel.

An excavation carried out by the Cowal Archaeological Society, at Achategan, on the slope of the hill across the road from the Clachan, revealed a series of occupations of the site going back as far as the Neolithic period, about 5,000 years ago. St Modan, a follower of St. Columba, established a monastery in the Glen, and high on the hill you can see St Modan's Well.

Kilmodan Church preserves several medieval grave slabs.
