    “We booked this holiday at the last minute as our other holiday was cancelled.”

    I was surprised somewhere like this was still available, and a little suspicious that it may not be any good.

    I was surprised somewhere like this was still available, and a little suspicious that it may not be any good. I was so wrong! The views from the windows of the sea loch and the hills were stunning, the lounge was ample size for all 6 of us (unusual in a holiday cottage) and the beds really comfortable. Katrina was so helpful and quickly responded when I had to ask a question and I would highly recommend that place.

The property

Dunoon 5.6 miles.

Craigend Coach House is a picturesque, double fronted, detached cottage overlooking Holy Loch within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

Situated in the coastal village of Kilmun, near Dunoon on the Cowal Peninsula, Craigend Coach House offers a peaceful and scenic base for a family or friends gathering to Scotland's west coast.

A long gravel driveway greets you the property, with room to park four cars at the side of the house and enter through the side door, into a well-polished kitchen where you can rustle together your favourite meal.

Moving through the property there is a ground-floor shower room and a sitting/dining area, with a nicely sized dining table to gather your loved ones and plan for the day ahead over some breakfast, and when the sun goes down, grab a spot on the sofa and flick on your favourite film on the Smart TV.

Head upstairs to discover s a lovely king-size bedroom with no need for a TV as there are breathtaking views of Holy Loch to occupy your attention, a double bedroom with a large wardrobe providing plenty of space for you to unpack your belongings, a twin room to offer flexible sleeping arrangements and a Highland cow-themed bedroom with a bunk bed that is perfect for children.

Outside there is a garage/utility room, which houses a handy washing machine and tumble dryer to freshen up any clothes, plus a lawn and patio garden, ideal for letting your furry friends stretch their legs while you enjoy a morning coffee.

The cottage is just a stone's throw from the stunning Kilmun Arboretum, and just a short drive away from the woodland gorge and picturesque waterfalls at Puck's Glen, plus Benmore Botanic Garden, a 120-acre collection of plants, rhododendrons and redwoods.

The property itself rests on the edge of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, which is home to Beinn Mhor, the highest mountain on the Cowal peninsula, making it a haven for walkers and cyclists, with hillside walks displaying unforgettable views over Loch Long and Holy Loch, renowned for its history of shipbuilding and as a US Navy submarine base.

Head further afield to the traditional resort town of Dunoon, with its many bars, coffee shops and restaurants offering local seafood, as well as a high street of mostly independent shops offering a refreshingly unique shopping experience.

This area attracts crowds with a variety of events, including food and music festivals, sailing regattas and the Cowal Highland Gathering, reputed to be the largest and most spectacular in the world.

If you're still searching for things to do then go fishing at Loch Eck, or try Hunters Quay Holiday Village, where there is something for everyone from spas, golf and fishing to archery, raft building, crazy carts and water sports.

If you look further afield, you can take a scenic ferry ride to the Isle of Bute, from the town of Wemyss Bay to Rothesay, or in just 90-minutes you can be thriving in the bustling town of Glasgow with shops, bars and restaurants to spoil you for choice.

For a tranquil escape to the west coast of Scotland, choose Craigend Coach House.

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 Highland Gathering reputed to be the largest and most spectacular in the world. 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 just an hour and a half’s drive away, there is something to delight everyone in this truly beautiful part of Scotland.
