Nearby is Tighnabruaich where 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.

DIRECTIONS
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. 

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.

Wonderful repeat visit 
We have stayed in Craignethan many times and love it! The cottage, location and
village are gorgeous. If you go I am sure
you will love it as much as us!
Big thanks to owners and Argyll Self Catering for making another memorable holiday.

Craignethan - a gem!

5 Star review July 2019

Just returned from a week at Craignethan. Beautifully equipped and stunning location. Everything anyone could want for a self catering holiday. Lots of local information supplied by the owners for strangers to the Kyles of Bute. Children catered for too with supplied buckets, spades and fishing nets as well as all sorts of games for the wet days! Garden is totally enclosed so great for the dog too!
Cleanliness was excellent. I would recommend Craignethan and I certainly intend booking again.


Fabulous break

5 star upfront review May 2019

Beautiful beachfront location. Comfortable, very well equipped cottages and useful for our size of party to use both houses. A bonus being able to bring the dog and a welcome bottle of wine in fridge! Had a fabulous family get together and would recommend this property.

A beautiful home from home with outstanding views. Near to Kames Hotel and a variety of activities within driving distance. Excellent host. The welcome bottle of wine was another nice touch and greatly appreciated. We hope to return.
