Boasting its own private beach and beautifully maintained gardens, this spacious modern cottage is just fantastic for group get-togethers or families.
Tucked away in a small corner of Argyll’s Secret Coast, one of the most enchanting parts of the west of Scotland is Tigh-na-Creige - the ‘house on the crag.’
Nestling within the mountains of the Cowal Peninsula and 5 acres of landscaped grounds, this is a captivating waterfront location with its own sheltered beach and private slipway.
Built on one level, the owner has remodelled the space so the kitchen flows seamlessly into the dining area. It offers roomy open-plan living, perfect for enjoying a good book or a favourite film in front of the cosy log-burning fire. Tigh-na-Creige’s kitchen is very comprehensively equipped and was upgraded in 2021, with superb kitchenware and an inspirational chef’s library.
Guests enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea and the spectacular scenery of the cottage’s gardens and woodland. Loch Riddon is a designated National Scenic Area with a famous viewing platform on the opposite shore. The area has been featured in many Visit Scotland commercials because of its beauty. Just beside the kitchen, there is a stylish sun trap deck area and terraced gardens providing a secluded spot for dining, with a log-burning chiminea and spectacular garden lighting for the cooler evenings.
Set on the shoreline, this cottage has access to a mooring (by arrangement), and is perfect for taking in the views. The sea welcomes wild swimmers, kayakers, sailors and fishermen, while stalking and coarse angling are available locally.

Immediate local history covers a Viking battle in the glen, the destruction of the neighbouring castle in the Argyll Rising and training grounds for World War II’s Dambusters and mini submarines!
Argyll’s Secret Coast boasts isolated beaches, pretty villages, delightful fishing ports and some great local dining in upscale pubs or the celebrated Inver and original Loch Fyne Oyster Bar restaurants. Popular tourist attractions include the spectacular Portavadie Marina, Mount Stuart, Inverary Castle, the towering trees of Ardkinglass, Benmore Botanical Gardens and seasonal visits to Rothesay and Tighnabruaich from the world’s only ocean-going paddle steamer, ‘The Waverley’. The Isles of Bute, Arran, Jura and Islay are all easily reached by ferry.
