Tighnabruaich

Tighnabruaich is a lovely little village on the banks of Loch Fyne and the shores of the Kyles of Bute, facing out towards the beautiful Isle of Bute. The village has an intimate community that welcomes tourists with open arms and includes a popular yachting and sailing school and well signposted cycling and walking trails.

It’s only 90 minutes from Glasgow yet known as the gem of Argyll’s ‘Secret Coast’. This magnificent coastal region boasts islands and shimmering sea lochs, rolling hills and glens and an intriguing history.

Ramble through the wilderness of the Kilmartin Glen with its prehistoric monuments and superb Bronze Age remains, or take an atmospheric walk through Puck’s Glen, crisscrossed with ancient bridges and tumbling burns.

Between the villages of Tighnabruaich, Kames and mainland Argyll is the passageway known as the Kyles of Bute. The views here are spectacular, taking in the myriad waterways, the steep hills rising from them and the scenic roads that approach Tighnabruaich; popular with fisherman and sailors, the village acts as a stopover on the way to the highlands.

There are several traditional Scottish pubs and restaurants, so if you don’t get a chance to venture to the nearby islands, you can sample some of the famous local whisky after a round of hillside golf.

The relaxing pace of life in Tighnabruaich is synonymous with traditional, Scottish country living. Search for cottages in Tighnabruaich and discover the perfect Scottish getaway.
