  • "We had a most enjoyable holiday."

    The cottage was very comfortable and homely. The weather was mixed but good for this time of the year (mid-October). We have been to the area before but never tire of the beautiful scenery.

  • "Cooking equipment was limited, lack of dishes etc."

    No bath mats or toilet rolls. The house was missing a personal touch and the information in the folder was limited.

  • "We were given the wrong key safe code so had problems getting in, the woman who cleaned the cottage was very helpful."

    There was no QR code at the house when we were led to believe it was mandatory. The house was comfortable, warm and very clean but we lost the internet connection and also TV reception from Tuesday and it never returned, it was difficult to do anything about it as there was no mobile phone signal in the house. This didn’t detract from a lovely week’s holiday.

The property

Torr Beag is a contemporary, detached holiday cottage in Tayvallich, a charming harbour village on the shore of Loch Sween.

Situated in a small, secluded development made up of a handful of properties, with a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills, it is a wonderful place to stay for friends and families exploring the Argyll and Bute region of Western Scotland.

Inside the cottage is a bright sitting room with a woodburner-style electric stove, where you can relax and put your feet up after a good, long walk exploring this stunning region - admire the beautiful wood mantle, carved by a local man in the village above the stove while you’re here.

Similar details can also be found in the spacious kitchen/diner, adding a lovely homely feel to the property where you can rustle up delicious home-cooked meals for you to enjoy over sociable dinner parties.

From here, there are double doors leading outside onto a charming patio, a perfect spot for a spot of alfresco dining, whilst the neighbour's pretty terrace garden provides good privacy and, as the space is a nice little sun trap, it makes a wonderful spot to enjoy breakfast on summer mornings.

Find a family bathroom on the ground floor where you can unwind with a bubble bath, as well as a double bedroom with a clever, compact en-suite shower room.

Upstairs are two further bedrooms, a spacious master bedroom with views of the surrounding countryside, as well as a twin room.

Although Torr Beag is only a short walk from the harbour, shops and inn in Tayvallich, you can enjoy peace and quiet, and the pretty sound of birdsong whilst sitting outside, there’s also a welcoming pub if you fancy an evening meal out of the kitchen.

A short walk from the property, away from Tayvallich village, is a wonderful beach called Carsaig Bay and you can also easily visit the Isle of Jura, with fast ferry crossings available across Jura Sound.

Enjoy walking and fishing on the Crinan Canal or explore the castle ruins at Kilmartin just a short drive away, finding a plethora of adventure opportunities along the Knapdale Peninsula.

Alternatively, catch a ferry over to the wild island of Jura, located off the mainland's west coast, home to imposing mountains, flavoursome whisky, and spiraling whirlpools, or venture further afield into mainland Scotland and visit Loch Lomond or the Trossachs National Park.

Other attractions worth a visit include McCaig's Tower, Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds and guided tours of Oban Distillery at Oban resort town, as well as a wider selection of amenities to choose from.

A wonderful holiday home for exploring this beautiful corner of Scotland.

About the location

Situated on the Knapdale Peninsula to the west of Scotland, in the region known as Argyll and the Isles, Tayvallich is this charming harbour village with an excellent seafood restaurant, inn, coffee shop, shop and post office. The town’s name has Gaelic origins, and translates to 'the house of the pass’. It sits on the shore of Loch Sween in a horseshoe bay surrounded by woodland. A mecca for boating and sea kayaking with public slipway and pontoons. An all purpose sports court sits next to the village hall, where ceilidhs are regularly held. A 10 minute walk takes you to the opposite side of the peninsula, to a pretty little beach called Carsaig Bay where you can enjoy views across Jura Sound and spectacular sunsets over the Isle of Jura. Fast ferries travel across the sound so you can easily explore the island. On the peninsula itself, there is plenty to see and do to explore the history of this delightful area. Visit the medieval Chapel of Keills and admire its display of carved stones, as well as its beautiful view of the MacCormaig Islands. You can also explore the National Nature Reserve on the Taynish Peninsula, which is home to one of the oldest oak forests in Britain or explore the Scottish beaver trail in Knapdale Forest. The 12th century Castle Sween sits on the opposite side of the loch, and Kilmory beach is easy to reach and a lovely destination for an afternoon stroll and picnic. The village is an ideal base to explore the Mull of Kintyre and enjoy it’s world class golf courses, surfing and beaches or visit Oban, 1hrs drive north, gateway to the western isles. A stunning, secluded corner of Scotland, with endless heritage and beauty to discover as well as plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and fishing.
