    Shieling Cottage is a modest 3 bedroom detached cottage in Lochgoilhead village near the start of Inverlounan Road.

    The holiday home is in a slightly elevated position. All the better for making the most of the impressive views over the loch to Beinn Bheula and Beinn Lochain. There is a covered sitting porch at the entrance as well as an enclosed small front garden ideal for guests bringing a pet. The garden gets the sun till late on in the day before it dips behind the mountains.

    You are just a few minutes walk from The Goil Inn and The Shorehouse Inn. Two local places to enjoy a social drink and good pub grub. The village Jetty for fishing, as well as D&M Auto Marine for hiring boats, are right on your doorstep.

    The lounge and bedroom sizes are consistent with a cottage. With 2 double bedrooms and a single, Shieling Cottage is perfect for a family, perhaps with a son and daughter who would appreciate their own room. This is a comfortable base from which to enjoy a relaxing holiday in beautiful surrounding. Your pet is welcome but please let us know in advance.

    Road Directions

    Lochgoilhead is situated just over an hours drive from Glasgow Airport. It is a small rural village, situated at the head of a sea loch (tidal lake) in stunning fjord like setting.


    From Glasgow M8 motorway head past airport and follow signs for the Erskine Bridge. Over the Erskine Bridge follow the A82 for Loch Lomond.
    Drive alongside Loch Lomond on the A82 until Tarbet (Note - There are several Tarbets in Scotland!) At Tarbet keep left onto the A83 passing through Arrochar.


    Several miles after Arrochar you will start to climb a very significant hill. This is known as the 'Rest and be Thankful'. At the top of the hill there is a car park and viewpoint, and a small road signposted 'Lochgoilhead' .


    Follow this road - (take care - single track!) for approximately 6 miles into the village.


    Detailed directions are included with your final confirmation. We make sure the holiday property is really easy to find.
