Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Argyll and Bute is located on the West coast of Scotland, stretching from Campbeltown in the South to Oban in the North, and includes the inner Hebridean islands of Islay, Jura, Mull, Coll and Tiree to the West. Much of the landscape is wild and remote, with mountainous areas, hills, glens, rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, sea lochs, fresh water lochs and ancient forests.

Ferry links from Portavadie to the Kintyre Peninsula and from Colintraive to the Isle of Bute provide excellent opportunities for exploring more of the region.

The microclimate that subsists due to the prevailing Gulf Stream from the South West provides significantly more sunshine than Glasgow, and significantly less rain!

Tighnabruaich

Tighnabruaich and it's adjoining neighbouring village of Kames are located on the Kyles of Bute at the southern tip of the Cowal peninsula, which lies between the Isle of Bute and the Kintyre / Campbeltown peninsula. The sheltered coastal waters and breathtaking scenery of the hidden peninsula combine to make the area an idyllic choice for people looking for tranquility and a peaceful getaway.

There is no real throughput of traffic, people visit specifically as their destination, and the laid-back community feel of the peninsula is much akin to that of an island.

The villages are approximately 2 hours from Glasgow, whether you chose the ferry route from Gourock over the Clyde estuary, and the drive past Loch Tarsan, Loch Striven and Loch Riddon, or the drive round past Loch Lomond, Loch Long, Loch Fyne and Loch Riddon; both journeys equally spectacular.

The Scotsman newspaper identified the road from Glendaruel to Tighnabruaich as the best scenic drive in Scotland in its issue of 29 March 2007.

The area is popular for bird watching, sailing, hill walking, rambling, cycling, sea kayaking, art, sea and fresh water fishing, (fresh water permits obtainable from the post office), etc. There are also facilities for tennis, golf (9 hole course with glorious views over the Kyles of Bute), sailing tuition at the Tighnabruaich Sailing School, etc. You can also catch a game of shinty on Saturday during the season, when you will see the famous Kyles Athletic play.

Only a few miles drive, and a subsequent walk will find you at Ostle Bay, a kilometer of white sands overlooking the North of the Island of Arran, or Auchalick Bay with it's beautiful lagoon and views over Loch Fyne to the Kintyre peninsula.

The Waverley, the world's last ocean-going paddle steamer, docks at Tighnabruaich during summer months.

The Kames Hotel is only 5 minutes walk away - or 10 if you stroll along the beach. The hotel is exceptionally friendly with great food. The excellent Duncan's grocery store is about 10 minutes walk, providing a range of fresh vegetables, foods, beers and wines, newspapers, etc.

Kames, and the adjoining village of Tighnabruaich, provide a range of services, including 2 supermarkets, 4 hotels with bars and bistros, bistro, cafe, art and antique shops, 2 post offices, petrol filling station, car maintenance, hair dresser, massage, etc.

“Relaxing Retreat”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2013

Ardencraig is a lovely cosy flat in a very peaceful & scenic location. The flat boasts a beautiful view over to the Isle of Bute from the living room window & is immediately across the road from the shoreline (which the kids love). It's located within easy walking distance to the local shop & pub, which is family friendly. The flat itself is well equipped for a self catering holiday & is a comfortable retreat when looking for a relaxing break from life's hussle & bussle. We love it here & will return again & again.
