Description

Built in 1898, Springburn Cottage is full of character and history – George Bernard Shaw stayed here. Situated in the Highland village of Strachur on the banks of Loch Fyne in Argyll, it’s been lovingly restored and is full of country charm.

The living room has a fireplace and wooden floor and the kitchen/dining area has a beamed ceiling and a quarry-tiled floor. The bathroom and utility room are also downstairs. There’s a steep staircase to first floor where there are two double bedrooms, one with an ornamental fireplace and a sofa-bed (for +one). The cottage is in the grounds of the owners’ home, but has its own sitting-out area with marvellous views.

The cottage is just 100 metres from Loch Fyne's beach. There’s plenty to do, from walking to boating to fishing. It's also well placed to explore the rest of this lovely part of the west coast of Scotland. The local shop is one mile down the road and a pub and tennis courts are one

Location description from manager

The Scotland region

The Central Scotland / Strathclyde / Argyll and Bute region

Argyll is everything you would imagine the west coast of Scotland to be – and more, making it the perfect place for your holiday. It’s wild and remote, with hills, glens, rugged coast, white beaches, sea lochs, clear waters and ancient forests. Many of our properties are in the Cowal Peninsula, known as Argyll’s Secret Coast because of its undiscovered charm. You won’t find crowds of tourists here. What you will find is wildlife, tranquillity and stunning scenery. With all this on offer, your Argyll holiday will be one to remember.

Argyll is packed with places to visit and things to do. Sailors, walkers, cyclists and artists are all drawn to this area for its natural beauty. You’ll find plenty of restaurants and pubs serving up locally sourced food, including Loch Fyne’s world-famous seafood. And, of course, there’s a great range of holiday accommodation, from contemporary apartments to traditional cottages.

“Great value and super place to stay”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2013

Arrived during heavy rain and indeed it rained for most of the stay. However, Argyll is beautiful especially if you like being outdoors and the rain did not spoil our stay. The kitchen in the cottage is very well equipped and the real fire was lovely to light in the evening. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need for a great holiday. The owner is very welcoming and happy to answer any questions. I recommend that anybody staying in that area visits the loch fyne farm shop as we bought some salmon and shellfish which was good value for money and delicious. We visited Creggin"s Inn for a meal which was good and also The Duck Bay hotel in Loch Lomond which was excellent.
