The property

Bowter Cottage sits at the end of a private driveway, giving it that tucked-away feeling. The cottage has its own entrance leading into a small hallway and then into a modern kitchen. It has all the crockery and equipment you will need for a self-catering holiday. The lounge has floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the view while giving it an open and bright feeling. The French doors open up onto a patio seating area with patio furniture. You can relax and watch the boats on the loch, as well as the gannets, eider ducks and other bird life. Central heating is by a gas combi-boiler with instant and unlimited hot water. The cottage is cosy and warm for winter breaks. Unbeatable value for money.

Privacy: Bowater Cottage is built adjacent to Bowater House. Privacy is assured and will be respected. If you need anything during your stay you are welcome to call on the owners, but otherwise you will be left to enjoy the peace and quiet of this special place.

The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park region

This area of Scotland is known as Argyll, and is renowned for its wild and rugged scenery. Peppered with sea and inland lochs and miles of often remote coastline, it is a favourite area for visitors from all over the world.

Driving through the historic towns brings a variety of interesting curio shops, museums, places to eat and visitor attractions. Popular places include the living museum at Inveraray Jail, Inveraray Castle, the underground power station at Loch Awe, take a cruise on Loch Lomond or try Quad Biking at Quadmania overlooking Loch Long.

The area is also renowned for its food and produce, with Loch Fyne Oysters being just half an hour from Lochgoilhead, as well as the microbrewery Fyne Ales where you can visit their tap room and have a brewery tour.

Argyll offers a truly great variety of places to go and things to do.

"Just what I needed."

The cottage was amazing, spotlessly clean, warm when I arrived and very inviting in general. It had everything that was needed. This was my first visit, but not my last. I feel recharged!
