Discover the coastal village of Tighnabruaich, tucked away on the West Coast of Scotland, also known as Argyll's Scret Coast. Justminutes away you will find local arts and crafts, cafes and welcoming pubs.  Bordered by Loch Fyne and the Kyles of Bute, this is an area of stunning natural beauty, with hills, glens, rugged coastlines, white beaches, clear waters and ancient forests. The whole area is steeped in Highland history and dotted with ruins, castles and ancient sites.

Around 80 miles from Glasgow by road, a perfect tranquil holiday spot for sailors, tourists and fishermen alike. Known as one of the most scenic drives in Scotland, a drive along the narrow roads chisled out the hill side offers some of the best great views of the Bute, Arran and the Ayrshire coasts and the hills. 
Getting here by road from Glasgow this fabulous drive takes you up the side of Loch Lomond, through the Arrochar Alps and over the world-famous Rest and Be Thankful. The final stretch winds along the coast with the Kyles of Bute stretching out ahead. There are some wonderful viewpoints dotted along this road. Take the A82 along Loch Lomond to Tarbet, then the A83 towards Inveraray and Campbeltown. At Cairndow, turn left on to the A815, then at Strachur turn right on to the A886, signposted Glendaruel and Colintraive. Just after Glendaruel turn right onto the A8003 towards Tighnabruaich. Once in Tighnabruaich follow signs for Kames and then to the Kames Hotel. The property is 250m along the shore road from the hotel, just before the junction heading back up the hill. There is a house sign in the garden.

Getting here by road and ferry is another option is to get the ferry from Gourock to Dunoon and enjoy a drive through remote, mountainous country. The writer Iain Banks reckons it’s one of best wee roads in Scotland. You then pick up the same coastal road as above. Take the A8 to Gourock, then Western Ferries from McInroy’s Point to Hunter’s Quay near Dunoon. Turn right on to A815, then shortly after leaving the 40mph area, turn left on B836, a winding single track road with passing places. After about 17 miles, turn right on A886, then left on A8003 towards Tighnabruaich.

A sunny week away.

We had an excellent time at Aldersyde! Very friendly welcoming and the owners responded quickly to 1 or 2 questions we had during our stay.
House was clean and very well located.
Great enclosed garden for the dogs to run around in.
Definitely will return.


Idyllic home from home, December 2020
Stunning location and well appointed home from home, will definitely come back to such a beautiful home and location


Lovely location, view and well appointed.

4.2/5 Star upfront review Aug 2018

Lovely quiet location overlooking boatyard and coast of Bute, view is ever changing with clouds, light and boats. Well appointed inside and out (though weather can be poor). Our third stay at Alderside and may well come back again.


Lovely house with large garden and spectacular views.

4 Star Upfront Review New Year 2017/8

A fantastic holiday home with caters for all ages. As a family of 8 adults, 1 toddler and 3 dogs, this property was more than spacious enough for us all without feeling cramped. The garden area was great for the dogs as this allowed them the space to roam. Although it rained consistently there was more than enough to occupy everyone. The games room was a winner with the younger adults and they spent many hours in there The views were wonderful from the house and even better when talking the dogs a walk. We would love to visit again in the near future.
