Discover the coastal village of Tighnabruaich, tucked away on the West Coast of Scotland, also known as Argyll's Scret Coast. Just minutes 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.

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.

Sitting in the living room with sunshine pouring in idyllic view over the still water, watching the odd boating activity, looking out for otters and seals (or maybe Squirrels? :) )
A perfect week reminiscing childhood holidays and making new memories for us all.
Property was perfect... all we could have needed and wanted. Thank you ! I'm sure we will be back!

We had a wonderful time here again. Enjoying the beautiful views, cosy livingroom and many cycles. We are all sad to leave but hope to return another time. Such a nice, cosy house with the best view. It is the most amazing thing to wake up every morning and see a view as beautiful as this. Thank you very much for making our stay as amazing as it was!

We had a brilliant time staying here and exploring Cowal, walking, running, swimming in the Kyles, cooking fresh fish bought in Tarbet via a trip on the Waverley, and most of all looking at the views through the windows!

Many thanks, we hope to come back.
