This impressive and substantial Victorian house enjoys an incredible position beside the sea loch of Loch Goil, where it takes in magnificent scenery and provides exquisite, elegant living accommodation.

Enjoying an idyllic position on the shore of the dramatic Loch Goil, this impressive turreted Victorian property provides tranquil and relaxing accommodation for nine guests with two pet dogs. Surrounded by stunning countryside, this secluded house has been tastefully decorated and offers period charm and a soothing atmosphere, making it the perfect spot for a family or group to relax in. Complete with a private hot tub, this wonderful retreat makes a great base for exploring a breathtaking part of Argyll.


This fantastic property features a welcoming drawing room with a tall bay window, grand fireplace, elegant furnishings and a traditional wood burner. The richly decorated dining room has a large table and glass chandelier to create the perfect backdrop for a memorable meal. The ground floor also offers a delightful kitchen/breakfast room, a conservatory and the spacious vaulted-ceiling family room where you can sit back, relax, enjoy a movie, chat or play pool. There are five stylishly furnished bedrooms, including a master bedroom on the ground floor with a beautiful four-poster bed. There is also a handy shower room with WC on the ground floor. The remaining bedrooms are on the first floor, several with glorious views of the loch. There’s also a cosy reading area with a picture window on the half-landing. A private lochside lawn area features a picnic bench and opens onto the pebble beach. A fast-flowing burn runs through the back garden, so young children must be supervised at all times.


Situated within the Argyll Forest Park, this is a fantastic base for dogs and their owners who wish to explore the west coast and the magical Argyll countryside. There are opportunities for hill walking, discovering sparkling lochs and spotting wildlife including otters, wildcats and eagles. The ruins of Carrick Castle lie on the lochside close to the house.

Wildlife is abundant here - lookout for pine martens, wildcats, otters, water birds, and buzzards along this glorious sea loch; you may see a golden eagle!

History buffs will enjoy the short stroll to the ruins of 15th-century Carrick Castle by the loch, while whisky-lovers can taste a wee dram at Fyne Ales distillery in Carindow (16 miles). This magical region is also home to regular ceilidh dances, a beer festival in Fyne (14 miles) and traditional summer Highland Games in Inveraray (24 miles).

What a beautiful property, in a lovely location. Remote enough to feel like you are away from it all but with some good facilities in Lochgoilhead. The owner (Emma) was very helpful, providing lots of information about the local area and things to do. The house itself is stunning - large, well furnished, comfortable and homely. The kitchen is galleRead morey style so not the place to gather, but we managed with two families together in the house. It does however have everything you need for your stay. All in all it was a great holiday and I will be going back! Hide
