There is access to a barbecue area in the shared garden surrounding the cottage. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms; one family room with one double and one single bed, the second room is a single, both rooms have coombed ceilings.
Nearby, the magnificent woodland gardens at Benmore Botanic Gardens are well worth a visit while the town of Dunoon is within easy reach and has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Take a Steamer cruise and explore the hills and lochs of the Cowal Peninsula.
Known as Argyll’s secret coast the Cowal Peninsula is tucked away in a small corner of Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. Bordered by Loch Fyne and the Kyles of Bute, it’s an area of stunning natural beauty, with hills, glens, rugged coastlines, white beaches, clear waters and ancient forests.
Argyll’s secret coast is packed with places to visit and things to do, and sailors, walkers, cyclists and artists are all drawn to this area for its natural beauty. Explore the forests and coastline by foot, bike, kayak or boat. Abundant with wildlife with deer, buzzards, otters, golden eagles, red squirrels and even, if you’re very lucky, basking sharks while you are out and about. The whole area is steeped in Highland history and dotted with ruins, castles and ancient sites. A short drive takes you to Portavadie with its new Marina and the ferry over to Tarbert to explore the Kintyre Peninsula with ferries to the Islands of Islay, Jura and Arran. Beach 600 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
Birch Cottage can be booked together with Larch Cottage (UK5117), Rowan Cottage (CC523089) and Alder Cottage (CC523090) to accommodate up to 24 guests.

Cleanliness not good old cobwebs above front door and in Velux window, mould on wooden trim at bottom of patio door crockery chipped and missing. Bags left out to put bedding etc in when leaving due to Covid (fair enough) when bed was stripped two mattresses out of three were stained + one of the quilts. Also sweet wrappers found behind cushions and in mop bucket. We bought place mats plates & bowls. On the plus side shower facilities very good and spotlessly clean also very nice spot fabulous outlook over Loch Long central location for touring Argyll & Bute didn’t meet the owners so couldn’t comment on them. As it was we were out for long days so was only there in the evening tv was well equipped with multiple satellite channels if that’s your thing.
