  • Striking period holiday home, overlooking spectacular Loch Goil, excellent for exploring Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park
  • Perfect for large groups and those celebrating special occasions
  • Beautiful long walks beside the water and opportunities for sea loch fishing and hiring kayaks
Property code: CA279

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.

Relax in the splendour of this imposing turreted holiday home, which is set in a large garden and looks out across the picturesque Loch Goil. Spend time on the shores of the beautiful sea loch, go fishing, hire a boat or indulge in some wildlife watching. Stroll down to the ruins of Carrick Castle, a 14th-century tower house, which stands proudly beside the water. Head straight out from your comfortable base to go hiking, hill-walking or cycling in the stunning Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Explore Argyll and Bute's Cowal Peninsula and take in its dramatic views.

Enjoy the high ceilings and light-filled rooms of this impressive holiday home from the moment you step inside. Bask in the glow of the woodburner, set into a splendid fireplace in the drawing room. Prepare celebratory feasts in the kitchen and then dine within the grandeur of the ornate dining room, where there is another wood burner to light on chilly evenings. Spread out in the generous family room, with its vaulted ceiling, and light the wood burner in here too, as you play pool, watch TV and spend precious time together. One of the bedrooms and a family shower room are also at ground-floor level. Head upstairs, past a beautiful picture window on the half-landing, to find the other bedrooms. Once on the first floor, find the family bathroom and four more sumptuous bedrooms, one of which has a turret window. Wake up in either of the front bedrooms to scenic vistas of the Scottish landscape.

Spend as much time as possible out in the tranquillity of the large garden, which borders the loch and its pebble beach. Relax on a bench on the private lawn with a cup of tea as you soak up the views. Enjoy long summer lunches, BBQs on the decked area and the 6-person hot tub and star gazing on the crystal clear dark skies. There is driveway parking for up to five cars. Please note children must be supervised at all time due to the fast-flowing burn in the garden and proximity to the loch.

A fabulous property in a stunning location. A great place for those who appreciate tranquility and love to hike in the hills. There are activities locally (boat hire, kayaking, paddle boarding) but otherwise this is a location for those who like to make their own entertainment. Great for families who love the outdoors. I expect well return. The proRead moreperty is well stocked with everything you need and fabulous views from all windows. The locals are really friendly too. Hide

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
