Inverlounan Road is a single track private road leading out from the village and following the east shore of Loch Goil. In parts the road is in an elevated position and there are many original grand Victorian holiday homes built between the road on the grounds sloping down to the loch side.
Accessible, but not visible from the road, Dunmhor enjoys its own secluded plot. To the front of the cottage the lawns run down to the water and the screened borders down each side of the garden ensure maximum privacy. The views across the loch to the far hills are stunning at any time of year, and sunsets are a delight.
There is a parking bay for one car off the road at the entrance to the property. Please be aware that there are 57 wide steps leading down through the mature garden to the door. This makes the property unsuitable for anyone with restricted mobily, but once you are in the cottage, everything is on the level.
Dumhor is a small detached bungalow style cottage with and open plan lounge, diner and kitchen. Sliding doors to the front with access to the patio area, and of course, all the better for enjoying the view. Two bedrooms: master bedroom with small en-suite shower/WC and there is a second family bathroom off the hall. The patio area is unfenced, so care is need with young children. There are steps leading down to the large lawn area which slopes down to the loch where ther is a high sea-wall. There is a log fire in the lounge area. Plesae be aware that logs are not provided but are available at the local Costcutter store.
It is a pleasant 15 minute stroll down Inverlounan Road into the village where you will find the post office and general good store as well as The Goil Inn and the Shorehouse Inn. Both serve food and have bars. Either a 30 minute walk through the village, or around the lochside; or a 5 minute drive on quiet roads, you will find more dining and activities available at the Drimsynie Estate. For a small lochside village there truly is an impressive choice of places to go and things to do.
If you are a walker, you are spoilt for choice. Close to the entrance to Dunmhor is the path leading up to the Dukes Pass within the Agyll Forest Park. From there you can take 3 walks of varying lengths - including the mightly 32km round the whole of the Ardgoil Peninsula.
