You can’t get much closer to the water than this! Mallard Cottage has a heavenly situation right on the lochside in the picturesque yachting haven of Tayvallich in Argyll.
A trim, beautifully modernised cottage, presented to the highest standards, the open plan living area has doors to the decking area above the water (furniture). There are two downstairs bedrooms, a twin and a single and shower room, while upstairs are a double bedroom and further bathroom. The upper gallery landing overlooks the sitting room below.
Tayvallich has a shop, cafe, inn and boat trailer park. In addition to sailing and boat trips, there is good walking, a beach across the peninsula at Carsaig (1.5m) and a private pontoon and mooring for guests’ own boat.
Lochgilphead (11m) has all facilities, leisure centre and golf course and en route you will pass the Crinan Canal, with enjoyable walks and cycling along the towpath. Down the other side of Loch Sween are Castle Sween, Kilmory Knap Chapel and sandy coves and interesting caves to explore.
