A private location at the same time as being steps from the village and the feeling that you could not be any closer to the water without getting your toes wet.


If it is a loch view property in a private setting you are looking for, then Westering Cottage certainly ticks those boxes. Located on the private Inverlounan Road on the east shore of Loch Goil you benefit from the sun all day until it dips over the mountains in the west.

With a mature and private garden this cottage is a real sun trap. The pictures speak for themselves. You can't get any closer to the loch without actualy being in it.

There is a parking bay for one car at the entrance to the cottage. 17 steps down from the entrance to access the cottage. The garden surrounds three sides of Westerings. There is a grassy sitting area on one side which has access from the sliding doors in the dining area. To the front is a smaller patio area. There is a sea-wall from the garden down to the shore. There is no access from the cottage direct to the shore.

The first thing that strikes you on entering the cottage is just how light it is. The floor to ceiling windows brings the view right into the living areas. The spacious lounge and dining area is set up so as to maximise the view. With the large windows and patio doors in the lounge this is a bright and airy property. The kitchen has a breakfast bar which opens up into the lounge. There is a storage heater in the hall. All other rooms have portable heaters. Beds are made up for your arrival. Please bring your own towels.


Bedroom 1: Twin beds and a dressing area with access to the family bathroom. Loch view. There is a fold down chair bed in this room suitable for a child.

Bedroom 2: Bunk room with loch view

Bathroom: Direct access from the twin bedroom, shower over the bath

Family bathroom with shower over bath and WC

Adjoining cloakroom with a 2nd WC and hand-basin


The large windows in the lounge and bedrooms are a key feature of Westering Cottage. They seem to bring the view right into the room. There is no central heating in the cottage. The lounge has an electric fire plus an oil filled space heater. Both bedrooms have portable heaters. The bathroom and WC have heated towel rails. Heating is turned on in advance of guests arrival. It is important to note that if you encounter a really cold spell of winter weather you may well need a sweater or two.

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.
