CORONAVIRUS GUIDANCE – BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE. We are well into this pandemic. The only thing for certain is, nothing is for certain. I have personally booked my own short breaks and holidays for later in 2021. I did so knowing that the local rules may change, but also with the view that things will get better. It fair lifts the spirits to have something to look forward to. In that light we take your booking in good faith that the lockdown restrictions will have been lifted and visitors are welcome. In the event that lockdown changes in any part of the UK that will stop you coming, you will be offered a change of date (subject to any upwards price change), a credit, or a refund minus a £25 admin charge. Please understand that this offer is based on the rules at the time and not on if you ‘think’ the rules will change. I always travel with insurance. You have the option of taking Booking Protection. This will cover you in the event of illness and other causes as explained in their cover. If you are planning well in advance, or booking a high value holiday, we recommend you consider this.

WELCOME TO GLEN FYNE
The A83 is the main route from Loch Lomond to Inveraray taking you over the Rest and be Thankful pass with it’s scenic viewpoint of the Arrochar Alps. Carry on around the head of Loch Fyne before leaving the main road and entering Glen Fyne. A wonderful scenic way to arrive.
The cottage is 2.5 miles along a private road. Most likely the only ‘traffic’ you will come across are the highland cows as they wander freely along the road. As you head further along the glen towards the mountains, you will know this is a special place.
Soon enough you will arrive at the cottage which is in a hamlet of 4 houses across the road from the River Fyne.
For hill walkers, Beinn Bhuidhe is just to the north, while several other Munros are within easy reach. A good base for the walking trails up Ben Arthur and Ben Ime in the Arrochar Alps. There are plenty of other less demanding hills around the glen to choose from, and also a beautiful easy walk along the track that follows the River Fyne 4 miles to the head of the glen.
There’s a choice of places to eat around the shores of Loch Fyne - the original Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, the Tree Shop, Fyne Ales and the Cairndow Stagecoach Inn. Inveraray is 20 minutes away, with many shops and restaurants.
The cottage is simply finished, but most importantly, it is warm and comfortable. It is perfect to come home after a day out to fire up the wood burning stove and enjoy a meal at the table, complete with mountain views.
You are deep in the glen and surrounded by the mountains, no surprise then that you are out of reach of mobile phones, television – and broadband. This is the complete digital detox experience – and is all the better for it. You may well arrive with stress – but you’ll not be taking it home with you. This is a holiday for watching DVD’s, playing cards, board games or puzzles, or reading. Deeply relaxing.
Glen Fyne Cottage is available all year. Short breaks are welcome.
Ardkinglas Woodland Garden - Enjoy a complimentary visit
Just past the village of Cairndow you will see the signs for the Ardkinglas Woodlands Garden. As a guest of Glen Fyne Cottage you are allowed free entry to the Garden, Gruffalo Trail and Fairy Trail. Something to entertain the youngsters, and plenty to entertain the adults. Spread over the hillside the paths take you through ancient woodlands, including some of the tallest trees in the UK. Make time to visit during your stay.
