Completely renovated in 2021, this beautiful detached, single-storey holiday cottage enjoys an idyllic location, with Loch Etive to the front and the River Awe directly behind. Extremely well furnished and equipped the property has direct access onto the beach. It boasts stunning views across the sea loch to the mountains beyond from some of the rooms, and lovely views over the garden from the others. There is a well-equipped kitchen and a dining area seating eight guests. The house enjoys significant privacy with its only neighbours being seals, otters and yachts. Point Park is one of the very few properties to truly have a sea frontage, located just 5 metres from Loch Etive’s shore with direct beach access. In all rooms the bed can be spilt into singles in all bedrooms if needed.
The lovely little town of Taynuilt has a friendly community and offers a village grocery store, a post office, butchers, tea room, hairdressers, doctor’s surgery and a restaurant serving good food. There is also a train station, the line through Taynuilt runs from Glasgow to Oban so you can have a day in the city or head to the islands. Taynuilt’s golf course is just a few minutes’ walk from the cottage and offers 9 holes.
The bustling Victorian town of Oban known as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’ is just 12 miles away and offers shops, bars, seafood restaurants, a cinema and leisure centre. Whisky lovers can visit the Oban Distillery, and for children, a trip to the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary to see the baby seals is a lovely day out. Regular boat trips leave the busy harbour bound for the Inner Hebridean Islands, including Mull, Iona and the Treshnish Isles with their comical puffins.
Enjoy leisurely forest walks, horseriding, fishing, sailing, diving and golf, or for the more adventurous, Glen Nevis, one of the Highland’s most famous glens and the location of scenes from Harry Potter and Braveheart, is only a short drive and offers stunning scenery and bracing walks. Explore famous castles, historical sites and mature gardens. Visit Bonawe Iron Works, Cruachan Hollow Mountain or the Inveraray Jail. The abundant wildlife includes porpoises, dolphins, basking sharks, otters, deer and a wealth of seabirds. Glencoe and Fort William are easily accessible by car and offer popular climbing, skiing and mountain biking. All in all this is an ideal base for enjoying the pleasures of the great outdoors or just savouring the spectacular scenery of the Western Highlands. Shop and pub 1 mile.

The location of Point Park is utterly amazing sitting right at the water. It’s so peaceful and quiet. Beautiful house with secured gardens which was great for the dog. The kitchen is well stocked up on all essentials which was great as well. The bathrooms were lovely but the towels provided were far to small , luckily we had someone arriving the day after we arrived so we had to ask them to bring us up some bath towels from home. I marked the comfort part low because the mattresses on the beds are way past their best and are not comfortable at all and do need changing. The furniture in the living rooms are also past their best and are not comfortable to sit on either. If these things were upgraded/changed then this would make Point Park the most amazing holiday house to stay in.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic loch side location with a beautiful enclosed garden. Spacious, well equipped and warm we had a very relaxing and enjoyable week. One of the reasons we chose this cottage was the potential to see local wildlife and there were many seabirds around to view from the panoramic kitchen window. We were initially disappointed with the lack of animal sightings seeing only one seal in the distance after five days, then on the the last Friday evening and again the Saturday just before we left there was an otter hunting on the foreshore just in front of the cottage, worth waiting for!

Point park is a beautiful place to stay - some recent modernising has made it even better although one bathroom between 4 people is not ideal as there used to be two! that aside it is an idyllic spot and we enjoyed the wonderful views which make it so special
