The property

This idyllic, detached bungalow is set on the shores of Loch Sween, within the fishing village of Tayvallich in Scotland.

Ambruaich is a lovely choice for those eager to break away from their normal routines and relax amidst the peace and tranquility of this coastal location.

Enter into a small porch where you can leave your boots and jackets behind after a long walk around the Scottish highlands.

The open-plan living area is the hub of the house, comprising of a cosy sitting area where you can really appreciate views of the loch, a contemporary kitchen with sleek units and integrated appliances and a dining table for those formal mealtime moments.

When it comes to rest, there are three bedrooms to choose from, each with its own TV; a king-size, a double and a twin, ideally suited to a family of six seeking a secluded Scottish escape.

Serving these bedrooms is the elegant bathroom, complete with luxurious double-ended bath and a separate walk-in shower.

Just opposite the cottage is a local grocery store and cafe, where you can enjoy a coffee whilst watching the boats pull into the harbour.

If you fancy a night off cooking then stroll into Tayvallich to find a pub hosting a seafood restaurant, whilst further eateries can be found in the Lochgilphead, 11 miles away.

The area is a haven for any outdoor enthusiast, with beautiful walks to be enjoyed along the stunning Knapdale Peninsula and Crinan Canal, as well as throughout the picturesque countryside.

From the Tayvallich Jetty you can catch a ferry to the untamed island of Jura, one of Scotland’s wildest locations, or venture into mainland Scotland to find plenty of things to see and do - perhaps a visit to the scenic Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park is on your to-do list?

A truly idyllic escape, sure to delight any time of year.

About the location


Arichonan 3.5 miles; Crinan 8 miles; Kilmartin 11.5 miles; Lochgilphead 12 miles.

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.
