Strathlachlan Cottage is set in rural Argyll close to Loch Fyne on the famous scenic road B8000 where the sight of classic cars is often seen. A single track road full of spectacular viewpoints of everything Scottish, Lochs, Castles and rolling hills not to mention the abundance of wildlife. The valley is proud to boast several of the best sites for diving and if fishing is your passion you will be in your element. There is plentiful walks to choose from and no one could ever do them all. The perfect place for your escape and the best place to forge your memories. Historical sites and old abandoned villages are at your finger tips. Long lazy days by the freshwater beach , set the ancient castles abundant , evenings where the sky is so close you feel you can almost touch it. Strathlachlan is famous for photographers and artists visiting due to its picturesque landscape, famous people often visit and even choose to marry here. If you can bare to drag yourself away from the passion which is the strath then we are surrounded by the West of Scotland's most prized villages and landmarks, accessed by just as spectacular roads. In the heart of Argyll, one of the most picturesque parts of the West Highlands surrounded by mountains and forest, nestling on the side of Loch Fyne, Strathlachlan is a tiny hamlet of just five cottages. Whether its walking, climbing, shooting, fishing, relaxing, sightseeing even cycling this is a place to call home, a place you will want to return to. Local loch side award winning restaurants to choose from and the friendliest pubs you will ever find, the way old pubs used to be with friendly banter and often live music. We also have the screen machine visit from time to time its a big van which pulls out and is transformed into a cinema they situate on the beach front and this has got to be the most quaint and romantic cinema you will ever find.

The Argyll and Bute region

Strathlachlan Valley has the Strath river running through it, and is set close to the villages Newton, Glendaruel and Otters Ferry. The larger villages are Tighnabruaich, Strachur and Colintraive where the kyles are. Driving round these villages is a holiday treat on it's own and sampling the local fresh cuisine which is usually caught and harvested then cooked that very same day. The Taste of Argyll is a collection of Argyll farmers and harvesters who have produced the finest and freshest for your pallet. Argyll Lamb, Winston Churchill Venison, Loch Fyne oysters are just some of our local producers. Argyll prides its self on working with the land and working together as a community, it is very proud of its cultural heritage whether that be food, drink, art, music and much more. We always have some sort of event to celebrate life and living, it's in our nature.


There is every type of fishing imaginable from the complete novice who wishes to learn a new skill to the master angler , boat trips are available in all the local Lochs even if its just wild and sea life you wish to photograph we have it all, the warm waters of Loch Fyne are a mecca for sealife. The landscape is wild and rugged with the whisper of historical ambiance. Strathlachlan Cottage is surrounded by historical forests and plenty of historical old ruins to explore. The local graveyard is the resting place of The Maclachlan clan dates from the 1200's and is well worth a respectful visit. Over the hill from Strathlachlan Cottage to the Loch side is the ruined village of Portindrain and kilbrides church. Portindrain was a village which has provoked local attentions for many a year, not on any tourist map but was abandoned and left standing, just closed the doors and left! If you are interested in this walk and the local legend, i am happy to advise and with any other legends and walks. A Copy of all the local legends and folktales will be available in the cottage for your evening reading. this area is full of amazing characters, the custom of waving at a passer by is still used and the local phone box is the traditional much loved red vintage, where the site of a vase of flowers inside is often found. The small hamlet is a very friendly one and one you will love to return to time and time again.
