The SpaceOne of 18 privately owned lodges, collectively known as Lamont Lodges, Stravaigin Lodge is a perfect base for exploring any number of gloriously tranquil glens and riverside walks. Or if you're looking for something a little more adventurous the magnificent Beinn Mhor is just up the road while the surrounding forests, rivers and lochs are the perfect place for fishing, mountain biking or quadbiking. Guest AccessWe include Egyptian cotton towels and bed linens for our guests. The covered porch is an ideal spot for overlooking the valley (and bird feeders). On a daily basis you will see blue tits, great tits, coal tits, robins, chaffinch, bull finch, green finch and occasionally a wren or a pair of jays. The rare red squirrel is also a thriving here in Cowal - indeed Cowal is one of the last red squirrel "strongholds" left in Scotland :) A full list of amenities are as follows: Two double rooms, one twin room, sleeps six. Large lounge with view overlooking the valley. TV, DVD, hi-fi with iPod dock and several books, boardgames, CDs and DVDs. Large kitchen with dining table seating six, cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and plenty of cutlery, crockery, pans, cups and glassware. Recently upgraded bathroom with shower/bath. Washing machine / dryer. Electric convector heaters in all rooms plus additional heaters. Dedicated car parking spaces adjacent to the lodge. Large covered verandah with table and chairs at front of the lodge, with wooden gate preventing your small ones/dogs making a quick getaway. Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels are included. A child’s cot can be made available. Please bring your own bedding. We have a high chair too. Well-behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement and subject to an additional charge of £15. Smoking is not permitted within the lodge. The NeighborhoodActivities There are a wide range of activities possible in the area and surroundings. We will detail the important ones here but check with Dunoon Tourist Office for specific events or activities occurring during your stay. Walks A definite must-do if walks are your thing is Puck’s Glen, a small wooded gorge situated in the forest right behind the lodge which both adults and children seem to love. A lovely riverside walk along Glen Massan is also just a few minutes away on foot. It’s also possible to walk around Loch Eck in a few hours. The spectacular Benmore Botanical Gardens are also close by and are in themselves worth at least a half-day visit. Gardens Argyll is well known for it’s beautiful gardens which boast a wide range of plants due to the high rainfall and mild winters, allowing some unusual species to grow here. Benmore Gardens are just a mile up the road and can be reached in three minutes by car or on foot along an old disused section of the A815 that runs along behind Lamont Lodges. As well as an avenue of giant Californian redwoods there is the recently re-opened Victorian fernery, a large variety of rhododendron species and an affordable but quality cafe/restaurant and gift shop. If you fancy seeing the tallest tree in the UK and a few other record breaking specimens then it’s only a 30-minute drive north to Ardkinglas Woodland Garden at Cairndow. Down the road in the opposite direction towards the Holy Loch is Kilmun Arboretum. Further still on the isle of Bute, which is a definite must-see, are the beautiful surroundings of Mount Stuart House and Gardens. Cycling and Mountain Biking There are a variety of cycle networks and mountain biking routes throughout Argyll Forest Park some of which are accessible from outside the lodge. See the Visit Cowal website for more info. Hill-walking From the lodge you are just 30 minutes away from the nearest Munro, Beinn Ime, and the rest of the “Arrochar Alps”. In total there are 22 Munros within an hour and half drive. One of the most impressive and scenic of these climbs is the ridge-walk (“The Cruachan Horseshoe”) around the Cruachan massif; the remains of an old volcano which takes in five peaks including two Munros that encircle a reservoir in the centre. If that doesn’t excite enough then built inside the mountain under the reservoir is a large power station which you can reach by bus which runs from the visitor centre to deep into the mountain. The summits themselves offer breath-taking views of Glen Noe, Loch Awe and surrounding Munros. (URL HIDDEN) Wildlife The are a wide variety of birds and animals in the area. Deer are a common sight throughout the year and it is one of the few areas where red squirrels have not yet been driven out by the American grey squirrel. You will often see them clambering up the bird-feeder to get some nuts. Likewise the bird-table will have regular visits from finches, all types of tit, chiffchaffs, siskins, robins and sparrows while the rivers and lochs are places where you’re likely to spot herons, kingfishers, swans and other marine birds. Fishing The rivers, lochs and sea lochs provide plenty of places for angling and fly fishing. Nearby on Loch Eck boats and permits can be hired from the Coylet Inn. Likewise Rivers Massan, Cur and Ruel all provide a good day’s fishing. For more information visit the Dunoon & District Angling Club or see Visit Cowal’s ‘Fishing and Game’ pages. Sailing Sailing is a great way to see the Scottish highlands and islands. Berths can be hired at the Holy Loch Marina. Shopping and eating out The Coylet Inn is just a few minutes drive up the road. Situated on the eastern bank of Loch Eck and commanding great views over the loch the Inn comes highly recommended both as a place for dining or having a drink in the bar. Further north in Strachur is Creggan’s Inn overlooking Loch Fyne and also recommended. Further still, near the top of Loch Fyne is the world-famous Loch Fyne Oyster Bar if you want to treat yourself. In Dunoon itself is Chatters Restaurant or the Inver Cottage Restaurant. Supplies can be picked up in Dunoon at a large Morrisons on John Street or the Co-Op on Queen Street. The petrol station just a mile south of the lodge also has a mini-market where you can get the majority of bare essentials. Getting AroundThere is a dedicated car parking space at the front of the lodge. To the rear of the lodges is the old A817, which is now a cycle/footpath and runs all the way along the edge of Argyll Forest to Benmore Gardens. Cycle Route 75 from Glasgow also passes within two miles of the lodges. There is a regular bus service which passes within 100 metres of the lodge

The SpaceThe property is located in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, by the side of the Holy Loch, Argyll in Scotland. The house is well situated for sight-seeing around the West Coast. The immediate area is renowned for some of the best walking in Scotland, and it is a great base for fishing, riding, shooting, golf, sailing or cycling. The owners have included 6 fishing rods, 8 bikes for different sizes (with helmets), and 4 bags of golf clubs. There is loads to do in the area and some great local pubs and restaurants, but the house is certainly comfortable enough for people who do not want to go anywhere else. The house consists of highest standard of four star quality throughout with 8 bedrooms (5 doubles, two twin or triples, one bunk room) and 3 bathrooms. With a large sitting room with open fire, wood-panelled dining room with open fire, kitchen-breakfast room with Aga, downstairs snug with big TV, DVD and wood-burner, plus a games room and a separate snooker room, the living accommodation is flexible and comfortable enough to suit most types of parties. The 2.5 acre garden, like the house, is absolutely unique. Originally built by the family of the Duke of Argyll in 1693, the house was owned in Victorian times by the Younger family, who founded the amazing Benmore Gardens a couple of miles away, which still contain the tallest trees in the UK. They also planted a huge variety here. With streams, waterfalls and a huge variety of plants, it’s simply a stunning garden. There’s a croquet set, football goal, cricket and badminton sets, a 13 foot trampoline, barbecue and the all important “midge machine” in the garden. As well as the ¾ sized billiard table in its own room, there is a small games room downstairs with a dartboard plus a multifunction entertainment table with table football, air hockey, table tennis, mini-snooker etc. There is also the sauna to enjoy. In addition there is a great selection of games and jigsaws as well as a pretty decent library and over 100 CDs. The snug features a 32” widescreen TV with CD surround-sound, Sky Sports & Movies plus a variety of videos and DVDs. Guest AccessAn option is to use the owners' friends at the award-winning 'An Lochan' in Tighnabruich to cook a celebration meal so guests can make the most of the opportunity to relax in the gorgeous, paneled dining room.

The NeighborhoodThe house is situated on the shores of the Holy Loch, adjacent to the Argyll Forest Park, and is perfectly placed for exploring the Cowal peninsula, the West of Scotland generally, and the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Two minutes from the Benmore Botanic Gardens, it is a 10 minute drive from Dunoon, 35 from Inverary, and 40 from Loch Lomond or the Island of Bute. The "long drive" to Glasgow is less than an hour and a half via the M8 and ferry from MacEnroes Point at Gourock. The property is just 70 minutes from Glasgow Airport. The walking all around is absolutely fantastic, and from the house itself there are half a dozen spectacular routes that take visitors into some magical places in the Forest Park. Guests can do circular routes that take anything from an hour and a half to eight or nine hours. The owners have left maps and guides in the sitting room, and more details are available from the tourist office in Dunoon. Cycling is a really great way to see the scenery in the area, and the topography is such that riders don’t need to do much back-breaking hill work. The owners have equipped the house with 6 kid’s bikes of different sizes and a couple for grown ups. Generally, the property is fantastically positioned to see some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. The views are not bad from the house itself, but a drive up to Loch Fyne and down to Loch Lomond, or into the Kyles of Bute, or down the Maccrahanish/Mull of Kintyre peninsula, reveals vistas that are absolutely breathtaking. If the weather is no good, visitors are only 75 minutes from Glasgow by Ferry and M8, and less than 2 hours from Edinburgh if the traffic is okay. They are both great cities to visit. Benmore Botanic Gardens is only three miles away towards Loch Eck, and are an absolutely amazing set of gardens planted and cared for originally by the Younger family, who previously owned the house. There are also awesome trees, including the tallest in Britain, and a great tea shop. Strone’s pretty, 9 hole golf course is well-signposted, just over a mile away. Innellan is another nice 9 hole course about 15 minutes away. Cowal has 18 holes and is a bit closer, just above Dunoon. There is also a 9 hole course 25 minutes away at Tighnabruich with lovely views up the Kyles of Bute. Visitors are welcome any time there is not a match on all three courses. Guests are welcome to use the four sets of clubs in the house. The River Eck is one of the most expensive trout stretches in the West of Scotland and mostly carved up by timeshare. Fortunately though, there is a mass of very good value options for both loch and river fishing locally, with daily and weekly permits available. The owners have supplied half a dozen rods and some basic kit, spinning and casting. The property is really well served with good pubs. Whistlefield Inn and Coylet Inn, up the side of Loch Eck at 10 and 5 minutes respectively, are both highly recommended. The owners have included menus in the house information pack. The more easily walkable pubs are both fine as well, providing big portions of good, basic pub food. Dunoon has dozens of cafes, bars, takeaways and restaurants. The Loch Fyne Oyster Bar trades a bit on reputation price-wise but is a landmark destination in these parts and only about 35 minutes away. Other Things to NoteWhat Oliver loves… - The property is set in a stunning location with great scenery all around. - There is loads of space and comfort. - The house is easily accessible from Glasgow with loads to do in the area. What you should know… - Mobile signals only work in certain parts of the house. - The dining table only seats 24.

          Old Argyll House is a beautifully restored but comfortable, historic 17th century house with 2 acres of private gardens. It is luxuriously equipped as a holiday home for up to 18 guests. The property is located in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, by the side of the Holy Loch, Argyll in Scotland. The house is well situated for sight-seeing around the West Coast. The immediate area is renowned for some of the best walking in Scotland, and it is a great base for fishing, riding, shooting, golf, sailing or cycling. The owners have included 6 fishing rods, 8 bikes for different sizes (with helmets), and 4 bags of golf clubs. There is loads to do in the area and some great local pubs and restaurants, but the house is certainly comfortable enough for people who do not want to go anywhere else. Additional amenities include: game room, golf course nearby, ideal for teens, ground floor bed & bath, walking/hiking paths, sauna/steam, coastal, lots to do: outdoor pursuit & activities, fishing. The house is situated on the shores of the Holy Loch, adjacent to the Argyll Forest Park, and is perfectly placed for exploring the Cowal peninsula, the West of Scotland generally, and the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Two minutes from the Benmore Botanic Gardens, it is a 10 minute drive from Dunoon, 35 from Inverary, and 40 from Loch Lomond or the Island of Bute. The "long drive" to Glasgow is less than an hour and a half via the M8 and ferry from MacEnroes Point at Gourock. The property is just 70 minutes from Glasgow Airport. The walking all around is absolutely fantastic, and from the house itself there are half a dozen spectacular routes that take visitors into some magical places in the Forest Park. Guests can do circular routes that take anything from an hour and a half to eight or nine hours. The owners have left maps and guides in the sitting room, and more details are available from the tourist office in Dunoon. Cycling is a really great way to see the scenery in the area, and the topography is such that riders don’t need to do much back-breaking hill work. The owners have equipped the house with 6 kid’s bikes of different sizes and a couple for grown ups. Generally, the property is fantastically positioned to see some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. The views are not bad from the house itself, but a drive up to Loch Fyne and down to Loch Lomond, or into the Kyles of Bute, or down the Maccrahanish/Mull of Kintyre peninsula, reveals vistas that are absolutely breathtaking. If the weather is no good, visitors are only 75 minutes from Glasgow by Ferry and M8, and less than 2 hours from Edinburgh if the traffic is okay. They are both great cities to visit. Benmore Botanic Gardens is only three miles away towards Loch Eck, and are an absolutely amazing set of gardens planted and cared for originally by the Younger family, who previously owned the house. There are also awesome trees, including the tallest in Britain, and a great tea shop. Strone’s pretty, 9 hole golf course is well-signposted, just over a mile away. Innellan is another nice 9 hole course about 15 minutes away. Cowal has 18 holes and is a bit closer, just above Dunoon. There is also a 9 hole course 25 minutes away at Tighnabruich with lovely views up the Kyles of Bute. Visitors are welcome any time there is not a match on all three courses. Guests are welcome to use the four sets of clubs in the house. The River Eck is one of the most expensive trout stretches in the West of Scotland and mostly carved up by timeshare. Fortunately though, there is a mass of very good value options for both loch and river fishing locally, with daily and weekly permits available. The owners have supplied half a dozen rods and some basic kit, spinning and casting. The property is really well served with good pubs. Whistlefield Inn and Coylet Inn, up the side of Loch Eck at 10 and 5 minutes respectively, are both highly recommended. The owners have included menus in the house information pack. The more easily walkable pubs are both fine as well, providing big portions of good, basic pub food. Dunoon has dozens of cafes, bars, takeaways and restaurants. The Loch Fyne Oyster Bar trades a bit on reputation price-wise but is a landmark destination in these parts and only about 35 minutes away.

The lodge is a perfect starting point for pursuiing any number of outdoor activities: hill-walking, cycling and mountain biking, fishing, sailing, spotting wildlife or visiting any of the numerous gardens which Argyll is so well known for due to the high rainfall and mild winters, allowing some unusual species to grow here.
