Dunmore Cottages are situated on 120 acres of peace and tranquillity on the shores of West Loch Tarbert in South Knapdale, just seven miles from the fishing village of Tarbert on Loch Fyne. We offer two self-catering Cottages, Fraser Cottage (sleeps 4) and Ross Cottage (sleeps 4)
The new owners purchased Dunmore House and cottages in 2015/16 which sits on a beautiful estate with stunning views over West Loch Tarbert.
We have an exciting vision for Dunmore over the coming years, which includes the full renovation of the self-catering cottages. Our aim is to create a fabulous destination on the West Coast of Scotland providing excellent facilities with a homely feel.
The good news is that we have already commenced the renovation of the cottages with an upgrade of some of the soft furnishings in Fraser Cottage and a new wood burning stove installed. A new kitchen is also on order.
Fraser Cottage comes with two luxury en-suite bedrooms, one with king size bed and the other bedroom with two single beds. Down stairs there is a well equipped kitchen/dining area. The living room has a wood burning stove and is tastefully furnished. There is a 4K curved screen TV. Patio doors lead out into the garden where you can catch the morning sun and watch, through the trees, the ferry sail by to the island of Islay, several times a day.
The estate is named after the Bronze age fort which tops the spectacular cliffs above the house. These cliffs afford breathtaking views of the West Loch and out to the islands of Gigha and to Islay, famous for its whisky making.
Dunmore Cottages are a perfect vacation retreat either to relax by the fire or enjoy the many outdoor activities that are available. Located on the shores of West Loch Tarbert, and only 8 miles from the picturesque fishing village of Tarbert, guests can enjoy the many hiking trails, and abundant wildlife, sample the excellent area restaurants (the award winning Kilberry Inn is only 8 miles away), visit the inner Hebridean Islands of Islay and Jura, whisky tasting at the numerous distilleries, visit the historic Kilmartin Glen, walk the beautiful gardens on the Isle of Gigha or Brodick Castle on the Island of Arran.
