With breathtaking views across the Sound of Gigha, this is just one of many reasons why this wonderful house and the west coast of Scotland attract so many visitors each year.
This charming country house, built as a dower house in 1872, is set within 5 acres of private grounds with a westerly aspect overlooking the sea. In 2014, it was lovingly restored and refurbished to match the requirements of the modern-day holiday market. Surrounded by mixed woodland and a farm on one side, it has an open aspect to the front with a Norwegian log cabin which offers all-weather recreation for all the family.
On entering, there is a spacious entrance hall with wood-burning stove and stairs to the floor above, with the two main reception rooms to the front of the house. These are the large drawing room with open fire and an elegant dining room that can seat up to 10 people. There is also a small study and a well equipped kitchen, along with a boot room and a cloakroom to the rear of the house. A utility room is accessed externally from the kitchen. All the bedrooms and bathrooms can be found on the floor above, which also includes a TV room. Within the grounds, the Norwegian log cabin houses a pool table, table tennis table, TV and various additional rooms where children and adults can relax in comfort. Set in a rural location, which is accessed off the main Kintyre coastal road, the grounds consist of woodlands, lawns, and a paddock suitable for children's games. There is easy access to sandy beaches, which are only a few miles away. Please note that weddings can only be for the capacity of the house's accommodation only. This is a well designed holiday house for family groups wishing to get away and to enjoy the west coast of Scotland.
