  • "Wonderful location with plenty to do in the vicinity."

    Owners very helpful prior to arrival and during stay. Kitchen well equipped and good quality crockery, utensils etc. Clean, nicely furnished premises and plenty of space for 2 of us. Did have problems initially with the Wi-Fi signal affecting the tv and to a lesser degree emails but issue sorted itself out. Would recommend.

    The cottage was very clean, the bed was big and comfortable, and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need. The welcome book has some good ideas for trips if you're not familiar with the area, as well as local information. A very enjoyable holiday.

    Never had a view that you are so constantly drawn to. Lovely neighbours. Really comfy bed. Lovely big snuggle seat. Great cottage. Fabulous forest walks. The sort of stay that makes you want to relocate to Dunoon. And particularly to that cottage. We both loved it.

    The views from the property are amazing and Mesmerising. There is plenty to see and do in the area too with walks and botanical gardens close by and not to far away from supermarkets and shops if needed. Would highly recommend if you just want to get away from it all and relax.

  • "The beds were phenomenal!"

    The kitchen was extremely well equipped, as was the property with books and games etc. The facility to watch Netflix on the TV was also really handy. If I'm honest, the only thing that let the house down was the bathroom. The toilet seat issue (which I noted from the "issues notebook" has been around since 2019!) was irritating (especially as the downstairs toilet was out of action for our stay), however my main issue was the shower. For a property where luxury and comfort is obviously a priority everywhere else, the shower (and bathroom in general) really let it down. If it helps, I would have happily paid more for the property if the bathroom was the same standard as the rest of the house. Ooh, and while the stuff provided for our dog was terrific, it would have been even more so if we had known about it in advance so that we didn't also bring all of our own stuff!

    Thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and can confirm that both points raised in relation to the shower and the toilet seat have been addressed and the issues rectified. Thank you again for your valuable feedback, and we hope to welcome you again in the future. Property Owner

    The kitchen was particularly well equipped, which I was grateful for, as we had to do much more home cooking than we usually would on a holiday. The view from the sofa is frankly unbeatable. I found it hard to tear myself away most days. The location is perfect, quiet but with Dunoon not far away, and a convenience store at the petrol station close by sells all the essentials. Lovely walks to be had from the doorstep, plus access to the pebble beach and loch just over the road, which the children and our dog loved. We’ll definitely be back.

    On the plus side the bus stops outside the house so it's easy to get places if you don't want to drive. The view from the window was endlessly fascinating. I saw sailing boats, a submarine, sea birds and seals all in the space of an hour. The bed was very comfortable and I was toasty warm on the cooler nights. The house was really stylishly decorated and furnished with thought given to the details. It was let down very slightly by a feeble shower jet and a wonky toilet seat - but not enough to stop me booking again!

  • "Pier Cottage is well equipped, warm, comfortable and the views exceptional, truly a gem."

    .a peaceful retreat, the neighbours were lovely and welcoming. We loved the siskins, goldfinch, seals and squirrels. The Botanic Gardens are worth a visit as is the Kilmun church and graves. Lovely coffee and home baking at the Gallery and picked up a few gems in the Glory Hole charity shop. WiFi excellent which was a strong requirement for my teenage son. The Pier just across the road is just idyllic, my son was learning to fish and the seal stole it which he just loved and didn't grudge it at all. No hesitation in recommending this property and location ....it is how life should be. Thank you for the welcome pack. We were 4 adults and one child and one husky. I would go back in a heartbeat x

The property

Within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and overlooking the gentle shores of Loch Long, with a handy coffee shop and art gallery close by, is Pier View, with uninterrupted views across the loch to Cove and Kilcreggan.

This mid-terrace cottage offers the ideal break for families and friends looking to get away and explore the beautiful west coast of Scotland and the Highlands region.

Entrance is gained at the rear of the property, where you can kick off your boots and hang up your coats in the hallway before being welcomed into the well-appointed living room.

Unwind together with the family on the sofa in front of the wood burner or tuck yourself away in one corner of the room with a refreshing glass of wine and a good book, while glancing up at the view.

You can catch up on the day's events around the dining table and tuck into a piping hot meal, which can be prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen next door.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, two of which, the super king-size double and the single, enjoy more of the superb views from the window as you wake up each morning.

Sit out on the rear patio on a warm summer's evening or relax in the front with the glorious views of the loch for company.

On the patio at the rear of the cottage, enjoy seeing the many wild birds and possibly even local deer that have been known to come and nibble the flowers.

The Firth of Clyde is home to an abundance of marine life and from the pier in front of the cottage, you can spot seals and harbour dolphins on a regular basis and you may be lucky enough to see a sea otter and even the occasional basking shark.

The ‘PS Waverley’, the only remaining sea going paddle steamer in the world, stops off at Blairmore pier regularly in the summer months and a trip on this magnificent vessel would be one of the highlights of your holiday.

The nearest pub, serving good food, is just a one mile stroll along the shore road, where you will also find the local newsagent and post office.There is also a scenic golf course in Blairmore which welcomes visitors.

You have plenty of activities to fill your day.

This area is very popular among walkers, cyclists and sailors, while the delightful town of Dunoon rests just a few miles away and is served by a regular bus service.

Find a plethora of bars, restaurants, coffee shops and independent shops offering something different in the town centre.

Stroll its Victorian pier and visit the historic Castle Mound or even explore the surrounding attractions of Argyll Forest Park and Argyll’s beautiful ‘hidden coast’ The Benmore Botanic Garden is within easy reach, a magnificent, 120-acre garden enveloped by dramatic scenery.

You can have a close encounter with a red squirrel, a sparrow hawk and the occasional Golden Eagle, with the Wildlife Hide offering the perfect opportunity.

About the location


Glasgow 36 miles.

The traditional resort town of Dunoon sits on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. Accessible by both land and sea, the trip to Dunoon can either be a ferry crossing over the Firth of Clyde, considered to be one of the best sailing areas in the world, or by a drive through spectacular scenery of dramatic mountains and lochs, each more breathtaking than the last. The area boasts a full calendar of events from food and music festivals to sailing regattas and a well-known Highland Gathering. Dunoon itself boasts many bars, coffee shops and restaurants offering local seafood as well as a high street of mainly independent shops offering a refreshingly different shopping experience. Benmore Botanic Garden is well worth a visit with its walled garden, imposing Giant Sequoia trees and hillside walks affording views over Holy Loch, renowned for its shipbuilding tradition and which, for many years, was a US Navy submarine base. With excellent walking, sailing and scenery to be enjoyed, and Glasgow around an hour's drive away, there is something to delight everyone in this truly beautiful part of Scotland.
