Inveruel is a stunning, detached property situated on the quiet coastal road overlooking Loch Riddon on the Cowal Peninsula. This spectacular self-catering cottage has lovely views over the sea loch and surrounding hills from all main rooms. It has been finished to a very good standard with solid oak floors downstairs and oak finishes throughout. The cottage has a state of the art air heat recovery system supplying the underfloor heating and a heat recovery ventilation system. The living room has large windows on three sides, ensuring guests can enjoy a great view when relaxing and a wonderful open fire with oak mantelpiece. The kitchen/dining room is fully fitted and includes a large, wooden family dining table to seat 10. There are also two spacious double bedrooms on the ground floor, one with an en-suite, the other with patio doors which lead to the garden. Upstairs, there are three more bedrooms all with loch views. The shoreline is accessed via the other side of the quiet country lane and a canoe or kayak can be easily launched from here. A boat mooring is available on request to the owner and boats can be launched locally. Fishing is available from the rocky shoreline.
The wildlife here is fantastic; even from the comfort of the cottage one can see a variety of bird life, especially at low tide when a large sandbank is exposed. Otters have regularly been spotted in front of the house. Seals and gannets are also regular visitors. Inveruel is a great base from which to explore this stunningly beautiful area and to sample the wide range of activities on offer. The Argyll Forest, part of the simply gorgeous Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, is on the doorstep and has numerous forest tracks, marked walks, cycle ways and wonderful waterfalls to explore. Walkers should seek out the Cowal Way, a long distance walk running from Portavadie to Arrochar. A number of public gardens are located in the area such as Ardkinglas, Crarae and Benmore Botanic Gardens with its avenue of giant Redwood trees. There are 3 golf courses available locally and many opportunities for a spot of fishing. At Colintraive there is a short ferry crossing over to the picturesque Isle of Bute and a visit to the fabulous Victorian Gothic Mount Stuart House is a must. Tighnabruaich has a sailing school and a selection of small shops. Dunoon has a good centre for shopping, leisure facilities and a small cinema. Inveraray is also a great day out with the Castle, the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll and the 19th century Inveraray Jail both well worth a visit. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
