Benmore Byre is a beautiful barn conversion set within the grounds of a working farm near Dunoon and is located within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. This semi-detached cottage has been lovingly restored from the ruins of an old barn. The building has wonderful original features and is full of character; thick stone walls, some narrow slit windows, coombed ceiling upstairs and all the interior wood is Douglas Fir which has been harvested from the grounds of the farm itself, then hand crafted to achieve a high standard of detail. The open plan living area is spacious with an additional wooden extension providing a light & airy kitchen/dining area, with views over the farmland and to the hills beyond. The lounge has a wood burning stove, leather suite and the single bedroom leads off from here. There is a further two bedrooms upstairs with the master bedroom having en-suite facilities. The cottage has its own small enclosed garden to the front and also a private patio area off from the kitchen. Benmore Botanic Gardens are only a short stroll along from the cottage and you are provided with passes which allow you free access to the gardens during your stay.
