  • "Lovely cottage in a great area."

    Well looked after and very clean. Nice garden and very close to loch. Highly recommended.

  • "Lovely property with amenities close by and a beautiful view of the Loch."

    Weather was fantastic all week which made the scenery all the more stunning. Close enough for day trip's and far enough away for plenty of peace and tranquillity, highly recommended and would love to return in the near future. Nick/Lynn.

  • "Absolutely lovely (and quirky) cottage, located right on the Loch (Fyne)."

    Comfy beds and warm throughout, our family absolutely loved it.

  • "Lovely place and superb value!"

    It took a few days to get to grips with the temperature. It was easy to overheat the bedrooms while the public rooms were cold. The wood burning stove threw out tons of heat. After a few days, like Goldilocks, we had the temperature just right. With two public rooms there is an enormous amount of space and the opportunity for privacy if you need time apart from others in your party! I have been on several holidays when this would have been ideal!

  • "The cottage is nicely situated with a stunning view onto the loch on the other side of the road."

    Greeted with a welcome pack of Tunnock's teacakes, caramel wafers and a bottle of wine and fresh flowers were a lovely touch. At the top of the steep steps the garden is surprisingly large with BBQ and garden furniture provided. The log burning fire provide a cosy feeling at the end of a visiting day. It is one to keep in mind for future visit. :)

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay in Rose Cottage."

    The pictures of the cottage need to be updated as the cottage has been repainted on the outside and the double bedroom in the older part of the cottage has been carpeted which was lovely. Post office/little shop was lovely and they do takeaway food on a Friday night which was very good. We took a day trip to Isle of Bute we caught the ferry from Colintraive about 30 min drive from Rose Cottage. We hired a boat from Loch Goil Cruises £75 for three hour cruise weather was beautiful and you can take your own picnic on board along with your fishing rod. Scenery was beautiful. Benmore botanic gardens were ok we did see red squirrel. Inveraray is a lovely place to visit with its lovely castle. Only thing I would say it would be good if the cottage had stair gates for younger children but apart from that our stay was excellent.

  • "The cottage was fantastic."

    Lots of space for our family of 4 (2 adults, children 6&9). Loads of room to spread out. Two TV's, DVD players etc etc. Even had a keyboard which our daughter could practice on. The setting is lovely overlooking loch Fyne, great sun sets. Lots of places to explore. Trips to Gigha and Bute were highlights. The George hotel in Invararie was great. Highly recommend for food and or a drink with cosy and friendly atmosphere.

    Just over the road you can get down onto the shore of the loch which is great for beach combing and a walk at low tide.

  • "Immaculately clean cottage with plenty of space for adults and teenagers to relax separately when they needed to."

    Beautiful views out over the Loch and central location for exploring the area. We enjoyed a great barbecue in lovely back garden - though access to it, while fine for us, would not suit very elderly folk or young children.

    It was very roomy for us (4 adults, 1 ten year old and 1 two year old). It was perfect for exploring the area and we were just across from the Loch. The owner made us feel very welcome and helped me with ideas of places to visit and places to eat. We will be coming back next year for a longer stay.

    It was great having two living spaces as we were a family group of mixed ages so it allowed the kids to have their own TV room! We would highly recommend this holiday cottage is you are looking for a peaceful getaway. The only thing we'd like to highlight is that we felt some of the kitchen equipment was lacking - in particular there was no cheese grater. Otherwise, all positive.

    My only comment would be that the saucepans and frying pans were quite old and we would have liked china mugs for tea, but that's a very minor grumble which didn't spoil our holiday at all.

About the location


Dunoon 18 miles; Inverary 21 miles.

The small village of Strachur sits on the east shore of Loch Fyne on the west side of the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll. From the Gaelic meaning Glen of the Heron, Strachur is just over 60 miles from Glasgow. The original village centre is located about half a mile inland from the loch shore and today it offers the Smiddy Museum and Clachan Inn. On the shore of the loch is a shop, Post Office and tea room and just north is the famous Creggans Inn, previously owned by the renowned adventurer Sir Fitzroy MacLean. The charming town of Inverary is on the opposite sides of the loch and is reached by a pleasant and picturesque drive, passing by the well-known Loch Fyne Oyster Bar. The Town Jail is worth a visit, as is the striking castle which you pass on entering the town. Surrounded by magnificent lochs, forests and mountains, Strachur is located in one of the most spectacular parts of Scotland.
