Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
You’ll love my place because of the cosiness, silence, tranquility, views, walks, fishing, and the golf......

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).

We watch for cruise-liners, submarines, seals and the odd dolphin from the front of our cottage when we're not out walking, fishing or visiting the beautiful Cowal regions many wonderful spots.

There's a friendly hourly local bus service or a 4 mile stroll into Dunoon, or pop into the village shop, The Lido.

The space
The Cottage is a cosy wee place to relax and unwind. The open plan area makes family time ALL of the time, which we love!

There’re board games and books, DVDs for wet afternoons and plenty to do outside even in the rain. Grab a map and explore the Cowal region and wonderful Innellan itself

There’s TV and wi-fi, but we simply turn it off until evening chill time. But to be honest, by the end of the day, bed calls loudly!

Location

Innellan, Scotland, United Kingdom

Innellan in Gaelic known as “the bird garden of scotland” lives up to it’s name today with thousands of migrating Sea Birds calling into the village daily to feed water and rest their wings.

For us human’s there’s the local Pub, the Osborne Hotel with lovely elevated Sea Views from its restaurant and a warm welcome in its bar room.

The local village shop has a post office and friendly staff.

Activities on your doorstep or less than 1 hours travel

There are numerous scenic forest walks and loch side trails with signposted footpaths, in particular to Carrick Castle on the shores of Loch Goil and through the sprawling Argyll Forest Park area. There are 3 local golf courses within easy reach of you accommodation Innellan and Blairmore (both competitive 9 hole course) and the Cowal golf course, Dunoon (18 holes). Fishing and sea angling is available on your doorstep either from the banks of the Clyde below the front garden or the old pier. Numerous nearby rivers offer Brown Trout, Salmon and Sea Salmon. For those wishing to cruise on Loch Eck, motor or rowing boats are available to hire.

Toward Castle is now a residential training centre operated by Actual Reality Scotland and offers fantastic days out for bored restless children, Castle Towards outdoor education activities include catwalks and a high jump, as well as gorge walks and hill walks. The castles long history has led to a number of ghost stories. As well as outdoor education, the house is used for residential courses for young people in music and art. The Glasgow Schools’ Symphony Orchestra and West of Scotland Schools’ Symphony Orchestra visit regularly. The children’s BBC TV series Raven also use Castle Toward as a film location.

In Dunoon there is an excellent new indoor swimming pool. Around the area lie quaint lochside villages. Further north is Strone, Ardentinny and Strachur…further north still is Inverary, Lochgoilhead and Oban all with extensive facilities. The Arrochar Alps… gloriously rugged peaks for the more serious hill walker, stand high above Loch Long, looking onto the ‘Rest and be Thankful’, a fine viewpoint where cattle drovers once enjoyed a well deserved break after a tough climb. To the East, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs – Scotland’s first National park.
