Gorgeous 4 star historic house for 18, with beautiful gardens, situated on the shores of the Holy Loch, within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Great for walking, golf, fishing, sailing, cycling, sight-seeing - or just relaxing.
Old Kilmun House is a luxurious 17th century country house for up to 14 adults and 4 children, picturesquely sited in two and a half acres of private gardens at the side of the Holy Loch in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in Argyll. The house is well situated for sight-seeing all around the West Coast. The immediate area is renowned for some of the best walking in Scotland, and it's a great base for fishing, riding, shooting, sailing, cycling, climbing or golf.
With a large sitting room, wood-panelled dining room, comfortable kitchen-breakfast room, snug with big TV and DVD, lower-ground games and snooker room, two baths, three showers and three loos, plus five double bedrooms, two triple rooms, and a bunk room for children, the accommodation is flexible enough for most parties.
Originally built by the family of the Duke of Argyll in 1693 - the Campbells have a family mausoleum next door at Old Kilmun Church - the house was owned in Victorian times by the Younger family who founded the amazing Benmore Botanic Gardens a couple of miles away, which still contain the tallest trees in the UK. They also planted a huge variety in ours, which is a lovely garden with stuning views at any time of the year.
There's loads to do in the area, and some great local pubs and restaurants, but we've also tried to make it comfy enough in front of the open fires for people who don't want to go anywhere else. We use the house ourselves when we can and we've aimed to make it the best-equipped holiday house available. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
