Find cottages in Argyll and ButeVisit Argyll and Bute

The Argyll and Bute region has been a favourite with holidaymakers for years and it's easy to understand why with so much beautiful countryside, lochs and coastline to admire.

The extensive choice of holiday cottages in Argyll and Bute provide the perfect base for great outdoor breaks, lovers of breath taking views and those who simply enjoy relaxing holidays!

With miles of unspoiled coastline, fantastic gardens, a wealth of history and heritage and lots of fantastic opportunities to get out and about amongst lovely countryside, there's so much on offer here it can be tricky to decide where to spend your days.

The region is perfect for walkers and cyclists who want to escape into an unspoilt landscape of mountains, forests and lochs and its extensive coastline offers visitors plenty of opportunities to get onto the water; there is excellent sailing, kayaking, surfing and windsurfing.

You'll find holiday cottages that aren't exactly short of beautiful surroundings that are literally right on the door step, for example take some of Argyll's stunning gardens such as Benmore Botanic Garden, which has an incredible mountainside setting and a world-famous horticultural collection, including a stunning array of flora from all over the world or Inverary Castle Gardens and stately home on the edge of Loch Fyne covering 16 acres.

Of course whisky plays a large part of Argyll and Bute's heritage so it goes without saying that a visit to the Oban Distillery is well worthwhile. Learn all about single malt production on the tour then maybe sample a wee-dram afterwards!

If you're looking for something a little more active then drop by Stramash Activity Centre where you can enjoy lots of adventure and activities including kayaking, mountain biking, orienteering and more.

The landscape of Argyll and Bute is rich and varied, offering a wealth of choice and a variety of different holiday themes to suit families and couples alike. The rolling open countryside and large expanses is a delight for humans and pets alike, which will enjoy the opportunity to stretch their legs!

Castle Lachlan Ref: CC523060
Castle Lachlan is a beautiful Scottish baronial house set within the Strathlachlan Estate, which has 1500 acres of land and provides a stunning view down to Loch Fyne and Lachlan Bay.  The Castle is the home of the Clan MacLachlan and the owner, Euan MacLachlan is the 25th Clan Chief. The ruins of Old Castle Lachlan can still be found on the shore of Loch Fyne. It was the Clan home until bombarded from the sea in 1746 by an English warship following the defeat of the Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden. This was retribution against the MacLachlans for joining the unsuccessful rebellion.  Lachlan MacLachlan, the Chief, ADC to Bonnie Prince Charlie, was killed in the battle.  The New Castle started life as a Queen Anne style house at the end of the 18th century.  Then at the end of the 19th century the Scottish baronial transformation was undertaken. It has now been cleverly divided so that the grander southwest facing front is now available for self-catering holidays.  The accommodation is spread over four floors with the kitchen, playroom and shower room on the ground floor.  The first floor has the main living area with drawing room, dining room leading to a billiard room with full sized table; all first-floor rooms have the benefit of a sea view.  The second floor has four bedrooms, all except one have a sea view; the master bedroom has an en-suite and dressing room.  The third attic floor has the remaining three bedrooms, with a single bedroom positioned within the Tower.  The Estate is mainly sheep farming with some woodland.  There are three miles of coastline, nearly all of which is only accessible on foot.  Many different levels of walks are available locally from gentle strolls to more adventurous trails.  The gardens have a tennis court which is available for use by guests.  Seasonal sporting activities are available locally, booking essential.  Clay pigeon shooting and quad bike safaris can also be arranged. The family also owns the Inver Cottage Restaurant which is only a 15 minute walk away providing food throughout the day and evening. A village shop and petrol station can be found in Strachur, only 6 miles away.  Strathlachlan is a great location to explore.
