Property Overview
Location

Easily accessible but exceptionally private: this unique lochside location offers unrivalled views, peace and seclusion in the heart of Loch Lomond National Park. Dating from 1876 when it was built as a country escape for a Glasgow, this family home is now available as a comfortable holiday retreat.

Spacious public rooms boast stunning loch views, and a great kitchen and utility room provide everything you need. The double bay windows make for a mesmerising view of the loch and the hills. To one side of the stained- glass hallway is the dining room, the other the drawing room.

The kitchen is a sociable affair with a window seat for lazy lingering, an inspirational inventory and rangemaster cooker.

A wonderful garden, bounded by waterfalls, leads to the beach. Or you can walk or cycle out of the gate and onto miles of forest and mountain trails. Beyond the waterfall boundaries of the natural garden, potter on Inverlounin’s own beach under the watchful eye of the seals or connect with miles of stunning forest and mountain walks plus cycle trails. Watersports can even launch or bring their own craft (mooring available). Boats and tackle can also be hired locally.

Whilst the house itself is great it’s the outside that lifts Inverlounin House to the exceptional. The private, south-facing gardens are informal with areas of lawn and shrubs. Lots of nooks and crannies to find a quiet place to relax or have family fun. There are the waterfalls to admire and two direct accesses to the pebble beach.

Paths lead in all directions and you’ll connect in a matter of minutes with the Argyll Forest Park network of short and long-distance walks and cycle routes. If that’s too gentle there are any number of rugged mountains within striking distance.

Want to launch a boat or kayak? Then this is the place. If its a larger vessel then 4WD and wet/drysuit needed as its a gently shelving beach. A yacht mooring offshore is available for use by arrangement.

Open the front door and you could throw a stone in the sea.

Loch Goil is situated in the Argyll Forest Park, itself part of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. This corner of Argyll is known as the Cowal peninsula.

Cowal’s exceptional natural environment is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, inspiration for artists, a joy for food lovers and a haven for wildlife. Bordered on three sides by spectacular sea lochs and in the north by mountain, forest and glen, Cowal is a peninsula of outstanding scenic beauty and cultural heritage.
Wildlife at Ardgarten, Cowal

Cowal is practically undiscovered as the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, yet is little over an hour from Glasgow. This idyllic part of Scotland which is a haven for wildlife and outdoor activities, but also has great accommodation, restaurants, pubs and festivals.

From the house you can join miles of breathtaking mountain and forest trails, many suitable for cycling. Or take to the sea from Inverlounin's own beach.


Location - Inverlounin House is at the end of a mile and half of private single track road leading from the village of Lochgoilhead. The last quarter mile of road is for Inverlounin alone.
