Today the cottage has been upgraded by its artistic owners and has a quirky character. The dormer rooms in the cosy upper bedrooms retain original wood panelling & provide spectacular views to Loch Fyne & beyond. The open-plan lounge has a wood burning stove with a modern vibe. There is a bespoke free standing galley kitchen off the lounge and a modern bathroom with walk in shower. There is a large conservatory to enjoy the scenic views. The garden is large and has a wonderful variety of flowers, shrubs and wildlife. The burn which originally powered the Mill has been redirected and is now a beautiful feature of the garden.

The SpaceA travertine marble floor runs throughout the ground floor and offers a stunning contrast to the original exposed stone walls in the kitchen and living area. An underfloor heating system from an environmentally sustainable ground source heat pump provides constant heating through both floors of the property. IT will accommodate up to 16 guests in total, with the maximum adult occupancy set at 12. A river runs through the grounds. Facilities include a shared indoor swimming pool and a tennis court (although both of these can be privatised for certain hours in the day). Two other properties are located within the estate but both are entirely independent so your group will have complete privacy. The kitchen/breakfast room features an original exposed stone wall but is wonderfully light thanks to the large glass archway and door out to the private cobbled courtyard terrace. The kitchen cabinets are oak, and the granite work surface, stone Belfast sink and travertine marble floor, are complemented by Neff, Gaggia and Bosch kitchen appliances to underline the commitment to quality and to marrying genuine traditional materials to the most up-to-date facilities. There is an American-style fridge freezer, single oven, double oven, microwave, halogen hob, large toaster and coffee machine. There is seating for up to eight around the expandable island unit in French polished oak. The kitchen gives way through an open exposed stone arch into the large sitting room with three sofas. There is a separate TV room seating up to a dozen – which converts into a double bedroom – and a dining room, both floored in the same cream travertine marble tiles. The dining room table can accommodate eight or be expanded to take 14. The six double/twin rooms upstairs are complemented by a bunk room for children and the downstairs TV room may also convert into an additional double bedroom for extra guests, or if a party require a downstairs bedroom for an elderly or disabled couple. Five of the bedrooms have wash-hand basins, and most have king size or super king beds. There is a downstairs loo and shower room, and a sauna. Two other bathrooms, featuring stunning floor to ceiling travertine tiles and corner jaccuzzi baths, as well as powerful showers, are on the first floor. There is also an indoor heated swimming pool that is shared between the three houses on the estate. Each house gets their own hour of exclusive swimming time in the morning and in the afternoon – outside those six hours, it is a “free for all” in the pool. The same rules apply for the tennis court within the estate. Set amidst the 20 acres of woodland, and enjoying lovely views across the glen and up the mountain, the gardens are mainly laid to lawn and terrace with hydrangeas, rhodedendron and azalea, as well as reputedly the tallest Grecian fir in Scotland. Our own woods feature numerous tree species and adjoin thousands of acres of forestry commission land through which guests are welcome to wander. One of our terraces features a Grade A listed sundial. A tributary of the river Ruel runs through the gardens, from the Lochen that supplies our private water supply. There is a lovely waterfall walk within the garden, and a rope-assisted climb down to a pool for outdoor bathing. It’s a fabulous location for kids. Guest AccessThe house is available on a self-catering or fully-catered basis, or something in between. Most of the weekend parties are for big celebrations. Not everyone wants to take on the task of cooking for 30 of their nearest and dearest. The owners have been able to recruit Roger and Bea McKie (formerly of An Lochan and now co-proprietors of Taste Scotland) as the contracted caterers. From a wedding breakfast for 150, to a formal four course dinner for 24, to a serve-it-yourself home-cooked fish pie - from a buffet, to a picnic, to a barbecue, they can offer up a menu to suit at a budget that works for you. When catering a dinner for you, as a one-off, the taste team will always leave you with some delicious fresh made bread and a vat or two of homemade soup for lunch the next day – along with your left overs. It’s a lovely touch, and effectively means that you’ve got two meals for the price of one! The default setting for the house is still self-catering but if you prefer, then Roger and Bea can work for you as live-in caterers during some or all of your stay. They will design a menu or series of menus for you that works to your budget. This could be as little as £9.95 per head for a two course meal from their fresh-cooked serve it yourself “Home Taste” menu – or four or five times that per head if you have a serious langoustine or fois gras habit. On a live-in basis, you need to budget £175 per day per chef, dropping to £850 for the full week, plus the cost of ingredients. They’ll discuss menu plans with you and then cook you breakfast, provide pack/picnic lunch ingredients and feed children and adults separately in the evening. If the big house is at full capacity and you don’t want any involvement in the prep or clearing up, then you need two members of staff. If you are talking about a party of under 20 guests, then it may be possible for a single chef to look after your party. Scarlett Johansen’s personal trainer is going to deliver a series of fun and challenging fitness and weight-loss centred Luxury Boot camps; participants are guaranteed to lose weight or get their money back. Attend the first ever gourmet golf tours hosted by the PGA Tour and coaching professional Alan Tait in April. The Feast of Golf 2012 is another cracking present and with an all-inclusive price gives golfers rounds at the Carrick, Earl of Mar and Machrahanish Dunes. Charles Jamieson MFA is the host-tutor for The Drawing Room, which is a new residential painting and drawing school taking place in March. Charles is a hugely talented and collected painter, as well as an experienced, intuitive and enthusiastic teacher. He has a number of stories, and is a great host. The Drawing Room welcomes amateur artists of all standards. The same applies to the new cookery school; the host and tutor of the Feast of Scotland Cookery Courses is Briton’s most successful cookery tutor, as well as being an outstanding chef. His students have won the UK-wide competition for cookery students an unprecedented three years in a row and he has been awarded an MBE as a result. On all these courses, there is a maximum of 16 participants, and the price you pay is an all-inclusive cost including all transfers, all materials, all visits, all food and drink – and all the laughter. To arrange any of these services, contact Oliver's VIP Concierge Team. The NeighborhoodJust an hour and a half from Glasgow, the house sits in some of the loveliest scenery in Scotland. The Kyles of Bute are renowned with both walkers and sailors as among the most stunning bits of coast in Scotland. Whatever the weather in Argyll, usually remarkably mild, this is great country for site seeing, with every corner revealing a new variation on the theme of mountain, loch, valley, sky, woodland, sea, rock, and beach. The Cowal peninsula is a fabulous base for an active holiday with marvellous wildlife, numerous gardens, other tourist attractions to visit, and a variety of sporting activities. The house has grounds of 23 acres, and sits about a mile above the head of Loch Riddon, enjoying complete privacy and lovely views down the glen to the river Ruel. The Island of Bute itself is as little as 15 minutes away from the house, accessed via a ferry from Colintraive, and was a “must visit” destination long before Stella McCartney got married there or former racing driver Johnnie Dumfries moved into Mount Stuart House as the new Marquess of Bute. Inverary with its famous Jail and Castle, the seat of Clan Campbell for the last few hundred years, is only 45 minutes away, as is Loch Lomond. Dunoon is another tourist destination in its own right, and it is just under half an hour away. You can get to Glen Coe in an hour and a half; to Stirling, Oban or Fort William in under two. Loch Ness and Edinburgh are easy enough day trips – reachable in less than 2 and a half hours. As well as general site-seeing and trips to the Island of Bute, Inverary and further afield, there are a host of other activities you can undertake around Glenaruel. It is fabulous walking country, and you will be provided with twelve mountain bikes for those who want to explore on two wheels rather than four. There are some really excellent routes direct from the house, involving all sorts of terrain and levels of strain. There is a lovely 9 hole pay and play course ten minutes away above Tighnabruaich. There are five bags of golf clubs for the house and they probably won’t be too fussed about the usual rules regarding golf shoes provided you don’t arrive in jeans and carve the course up. The same applies to the almost equally spectacular nine hole course at Blairmore & Strone, half an hour away. Cowal Golf Club at Dunoon and Inellan are the 18 hole courses in the area that welcome visitors. For fishing, there are too many options to go into here, but you can spend anything from £9 per day to over £1,000 for river fishing in the area. You can fish for trout in the nearby stream for nothing or in the Lochen at the head of the river. Mackerel on a line in a boat on the Kyles is a right of passage for hundreds of West of Scotland kids every year. They swim in shoals all around these waters and there is no permit payable. It is a fabulous part of the world for water-sports of all sorts. Horse-riding, climbing, canoeing, caving, archery, quad biking, paint-balling, and clay pigeon shooting are also all available either on site or in the area. There is a wee shop selling all the basics at the camp-site in the Glendaruel valley, about a mile walk away, beside the historic Kilmodan standing stones. You get a slightly bigger choice in the Spar at Tighnabruich five miles away. Dunoon is 16 miles away and is a thriving market / harbour town with award-winning bakeries, cafes and butchers, as well as a big Co-Op and a big Somerfield supermarket. Scotland is not really well served by pubs in general; this area is definitely an exception. The Glendaruel Hotel is a lovely wee pub, a two mile drive away, and serves good pub grub. The Colintraive Hotel and Tighnabruich Hotel are each a tad busier and a tad more ambitious in terms of menu. Chatters in Dunoon is highly recommended, and the Whistlefield and Coylet Inns on Loch Eck are also worth a visit. Less than half an hour away from the house is a wonderful restaurant on Loch Fyne, overlooking the old Castle Lachlan. The Benmore Gardens tea room is not half bad, either, and the Otterferry Inn and Loch Fyne Oyster Bar have good reputations (on which, it might be said, they trade slightly). All in all, though, there are few areas of Scotland where you can enjoy such a variety of excellent, reasonably priced menus. Getting AroundNearest Airport: Glasgow (71-80 km) Nearest Ferry port:Dunoon (16-20 km) Other Things to NoteWhat Oliver loves… - Stunning Location - great scenery all around. - Space and Comfort. - Easily accessible from Glasgow with loads to do in the area. What you should know… - Mobile signal only works in certain parts of the house. - Dining table only seats 24.

The SpaceThe dining hall seats 24 in style and comfort, and the rest of the house lends itself ideally to big groups for family celebrations, anniversaries, corporate bonding sessions, or anything else. Argyll House is as luxurious as a boutique hotel, but at a fraction of the cost and without any of the formality of a hotel. There is also the option of being completely self catering if that suits you, or fully catered if you really want to kick back during your stay. It does not have the grandeur or intimidating historic atmosphere of a castle or a stately home proper, but that makes it a very comfortable place to be at home in, even with 30 people. A river runs through the grounds just 100 yards behind the main house, and shared facilities include the indoor swimming pool and a tennis court (although both of these can be privatised for certain hours in the day). With the two other renovations now complete, there is space for an even bigger party. The Mill sleeps 20 with a fabulous open plan living area of nearly 1,000 square feet. The old barn sleeps 16 in style and comfort. All can be hired together for groups of up to 60. All properties are entirely independent of each other so you maintain privacy. The house has been pretty luxuriously equipped and nicely furnished, mostly with antiques. The new, comfy beds feature fabulous quality goose-down and feather duvets and gorgeous bed-linen, we’ve put some original Scottish art on the walls, bought half decent crystal for the table and generally tried to ensure that it’s as comfortable and well-equipped a place to stay as you’ll find in Scotland, without having any of the formality or grandeur of a castle or stately home. The house has a lovely, relaxing feel. With a drawing room, TV room/snug, full-size billiard room, playroom, large kitchen with AGA and breakfast room downstairs - as well as the impressive dining hall seating 22 - the house has sufficient accommodation to cater for any large house party. We have laid out the bedrooms to offer real flexibility; two rooms are set up as twins, three as king-size doubles, and one as a quadruple bunk room. The other seven bedrooms can be set up either as super-kingsize doubles, as twins, or even sometimes as triples. All bar two of the bedrooms have either an en suite bathroom or a basin. There are four further bathrooms, two separate loos, and a sauna. Altogether, the house has nine showers and ten WCs. We also have an indoor heated swimming pool that is shared between the three houses on the estate. Each house gets their own hour of exclusive swimming time in the morning and in the afternoon – outside those six hours, it is a “free for all” in the pool.

There is a lovely waterfall walk within the garden, and a rope-assisted climb down to a pool for outdoor bathing. It’s a fabulous location for kids. We’ve added a trampoline, croquet set and football goal to what nature has provided as a playground, and we’ve installed two midge machines. Other facilities include the 10 person sauna, a table-tennis room, five sets of golf clubs and 10 bikes.

The SpaceThis is a truly unique space, a full immersion into the countryside - you have hills, river, loch, beach, a vast ever-changing sky. You can fish, forage, build bonfires, go beachcombing, watch wildlife. Inside the cottage you can enjoy board games, DVDs, table-tennis and a large selection of books as well as some musical instruments. Apart from perhaps seeing the occasional walker on the beach, you will have the place to yourselves. Yet it is only a few miles to the nearest village and other attractions round about. Guest AccessYou, of course, have exclusive use of the house for the duration of your stay. Guests staying between April and the end of October have the exclusive use of our rowing boat and the right to fish on the river in season.

    The Hideaway is a self contained, self catering one bedroom annex (with additional comfy sofa bed in the lounge) sleeping up to 4 adults and one child but we also offer it for single nights as B & B with a DIY breakfast supplied (for B & B please send a message with your enquiry so that we can adjust the nightly rate accordingly) and you have the exclusive use of the whole annex. The Hideaway is attached to the owners accommodation at Kilbride Farm. The farmhouse itself was built in the 1890's and the annex is a more recent conversion. It is perfect if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of every day life with time to sit and admire the views or wander down to a quiet sandy beach and re connect with your inner peace. The Hideaway has a large bedroom with a comfortable super king sized bed that can also be converted into twin beds. It has ample cupboard and drawer space for all your personal effects. There is also space to erect a travel cot or full sized single blow up bed if desired - both can be supplied. Next to the bedroom is a lovely big bathroom that offers you the choice of a quick shower before a day on the beach or a long deep luxurious soak in the bath after a day spent walking in some of the most beautiful countryside imaginable. There is also a WC and wash hand basin. The cosy open plan lounge dominated by patio doors with stunning views over open countryside has a small kitchen area at one end which is equipped with all that you will need to whip up a hearty breakfast, an indulgent lunch or a romantic evening meal to eat either at the dining table or outside on your own raised patio where there is seating as well as a small BBQ should you wish to fire it up and cook up some of the wonderful local produce. Where ever you choose to eat the view will be amazing. You have a four ring electric hob, a fridge with small freezer compartment, a combination microwave/fan assisted convection oven/grill, a toaster and kettle and an abundance of utensils. The rest of the room is turned over to relaxation with a comfy sofa which also converts easily to a comfortable double bed, a rocking chair, an electric log burner effect fire, a television with freeview, a DVD player and also free WiFi. There are also books and games supplied. The Hideaway also has oil fired central heating. The patio doors in the lounge supply you with your own access separate to the owners entrance and you can access it by your own path along the side of the annexe. Although you share the garden with the owners they will give you all the privacy. peace and quiet you desire and as the garden is large and the land extends to 9 acres there is plenty of space to lose yourself in. There is a pretty burn that runs directly next to the side access to The Hideaway and through the garden so you can sit on the patio and listen to the relaxing sound of the water running. Many years ago there used to be a water wheel located here. Situated just a few minutes drive from the pretty village of Tighnabruaich on the stunning Cowal Peninsula of Scotland's west coast it is in an area known as 'Argyll's Secret Coast'. Kilbride Farm is a landmark used to direct people to the most beautiful beach in the area, Ostel Bay, also known as Kilbride Bay. The stunning bay with views over to Arran is just a 15 minute walk away and accessible only on foot from the track which forms part of the boundary of Kilbride Farm. Wander down there to watch the sunset and you will often have the beach completely to yourself.

    Available to let all year round, Hillview Cottage is a traditional 2 bedroom property situated in a beautiful sheltered scenic setting in an elevated position over looking the sparse western shores of the Isle of Bute with the mountains of the island of Arran in the distance. Heating and hot water are provided by a wood burning stove and lighting by enclosed candle lanterns. There is no electricity or landline, and you won't miss them! The cottage is a wonderful place to stay for rest, relaxation and recreation. Built in 1896 as a game keepers cottage for the former Caladh House estate, the property's rustic and antiquated nature have been retained to provide an opportunity to escape from all mod cons and the demands from everyday living. Set in 3 acres of land. Situated 1.5 miles north of the villages of Tighnabruaich and the adjoining Kames, the Cottage feels serenely remote yet all services required are close at hand. In the villages you will find 2 excellent supermarkets, garage with petrol and workshop, 4 hotels with public bars and restaurants, restaurant, vegetarian cafe, Kyles Athletic shinty pitch, tennis courts, and 9-hole golf course with spectacular views over the Kyles of Bute. The Tighnabruaich Sailing School lies about 2 miles from Kames at Carry Farm. Hillview Cottage was featured as one of the three best Scottish hideaways in the issue of the Observer Magazine on 26 August 2012 as part of a weekly travel feature called 'Joanne O'Connor's Great escapes'. It's also featured briefly on the Guardian website as part of the same article. During the summer season we will consider durations other than 1 week, depending upon timing and availability. Please contact us if you require further information. Shorter stays are available in off peak periods; £270 for 4 nights midweek and £310 for 4 nights over the weekend. Payment includes wood for the fire and stove, candles, linen, towels and tea towels. Please note the above tariffs relate to linen and towels for 1 double bed. For additional linen and towels, a further £10 is applicable for the second double bed and a further £5 for the single. Tighnabruaich and it's adjoining neighbouring village of Kames are located on the Kyles of Bute at the southern tip of the Cowal peninsula, which lies between the Isle of Bute and the Kintyre / Campbeltown peninsula. The sheltered coastal waters and breathtaking scenery of the hidden peninsula combine to make the area an idyllic choice for people looking for tranquility and a peaceful getaway. There is no real throughput of traffic, people visit specifically as their destination, and the laid-back community feel of the peninsula is much akin to that of an island. The villages are approximately 2 hours from Glasgow, whether you chose the ferry route from Gourock over the Clyde estuary, and the drive past Loch Tarsan, Loch Striven and Loch Riddon, or the drive round past Loch Lomond, Loch Long, Loch Fyne and Loch Riddon; both journeys equally spectacular. The Scotsman newspaper identified the road from Glendaruel to Tighnabruaich as the best scenic drive in Scotland in its issue of 29 March 2007. The area is popular for bird watching, sailing, hill walking, rambling, cycling, sea kayaking, art, sea and fresh water fishing, (fresh water permits obtainable from the post office), etc. There are also facilities for tennis, golf (9 hole course with glorious views over the Kyles of Bute), sailing tuition at the Tighnabruaich Sailing School, etc. You can also catch a game of shinty on Saturday during the season, when you will see the famous Kyles Athletic play. Only a few miles drive, and a subsequent walk will find you at Ostle Bay, a kilometer of white sands overlooking the North of the Island of Arran, or Auchalick Bay with it's beautiful lagoon and views over Loch Fyne to the Kintyre peninsula. The Waverley, the world's last ocean-going paddle steamer, docks at Tighnabruaich during summer months. Kames, and the adjoining village of Tighnabruaich, provide a range of services, including 2 supermarkets, 4 hotels with bars and bistros, bistro, cafe, art and antique shops, 2 post offices, petrol filling station, car maintenance, hair dresser, massage, etc.

          The SpaceThe cottage is a comfortably rustic traditional building constructed of stone and slate in 1896 for use as a gamekeepers abode for the Caladh Estate. The stone wall and pine clad ceiling interior has exposed beams. The wooden floor boards in the main two rooms and the stone floors to the rear rooms are painted. Heating is by virtue of a wood-burning stove and log fire. The wood stove's back boiler produces piping hot fresh mountain stream water so you can bathe in the wonderful long deep Victorian cast iron bath. Light the candles and take some wine and music and a good friend and keep topping up the hot! Lighting is provided by enclosed candle lanterns and there are various torches, wind up and battery. For cooking there is a 4 ring gas cooker with oven and grill and the kitchen is well equipped for most purposes. A modern digital radio and a stereo CD radio cassette with lead to accept stereo media are provided. Please note there is no electricity or land telephone line, and be assured you won't miss them! The local hotels and cafes are very accommodating to allow visitors charge up their media devices. The main bedroom has a pine double bed with tallboy chest of drawers, two small bedside chests of drawers a recess for hanging clothes and log fire. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with double bed on the bottom and single up top and some large wall shelfs and a hanging rack. We have just installed a small conservatory to the rear side of the cottage with a lovely view over the Kyles of Bute. We are new to this lovely site, so please check out trip advisor for reviews in the meantime. Guest AccessGuests will have the freedom of the cottage and gardens, and also the large tract of land across the stream belonging to the cottage where you will notice some discrete benches and hammock. There is a substantial and safe bridge for crossing the stream, but be careful it becomes very slippery when wet. Interaction with GuestsAn information pack will be provided for guests with details on travel and access, rustic living, great places to visit and eat, access to discounted ferry tickets, batteries for torches and music, etc. We will also send a text upon arrival to make sure you have found the cottage and all is well. Contact telephone numbers and an email address will be provided for guests for assistance and information. The NeighborhoodTighnabruaich and it's adjoining neighbouring village of Kames are located on the Kyles of Bute at the southern tip of the Cowal peninsula, which lies between the Isle of Bute and the Kintyre / Campbeltown peninsula. The sheltered coastal waters and breathtaking scenery of the hidden peninsula combine to make the area an idyllic choice for people looking for tranquility and a peaceful getaway. There is no real throughput of traffic, people visit specifically as their destination, and the laid-back community feel of the peninsula is much akin to that of an island. The villages are approximately 2 hours from Glasgow, whether you chose the ferry route from Gourock over the Clyde estuary, and the drive past Loch Tarsan, Loch Striven and Loch Riddon, or the drive round past Loch Lomond, Loch Long, Loch Fyne and Loch Riddon; both journeys equally spectacular. The Scotsman newspaper identified the road from Glendaruel to Tighnabruaich as the best scenic drive in Scotland in its issue of 29 March 2007. The area is popular for bird watching, sailing, hill walking, rambling, cycling, sea kayaking, art, sea and fresh water fishing, (fresh water permits obtainable from the post office), etc. There are also facilities for tennis, golf (9 hole course with glorious views over the Kyles of Bute), sailing tuition at the Tighnabruaich Sailing School, etc. You can also catch a game of shinty on Saturday during the season, when you will see the famous Kyles Athletic play. Only a few miles drive, and a subsequent walk will find you at Ostle Bay, a kilometer of white sands overlooking the North of the Island of Arran, or Auchalick Bay with it's beautiful lagoon and views over Loch Fyne to the Kintyre peninsula. The Waverley, the world's last ocean-going paddle steamer, docks at Tighnabruaich during summer months. Kames, and the adjoining village of Tighnabruaich, provide a range of services, including 2 supermarkets, 4 hotels with bars and restaurants, bistros, art and antique shops, 2 post offices, petrol filling station and car maintenance, hair dresser, massage, etc. The new Portavadie Swimmimg Pool provides swim/sauna/heated outdoor poor/outside spa/cafe and prices include all facilities, non members hours 12 – 5pm 7 days. Ferry links from Portavadie to the Kintyre Peninsula and from Colintraive to the Isle of Bute provide excellent opportunities for exploring more of the region. The microclimate that subsists due to the prevailing Gulf Stream from the South West provides significantly more sunshine than Glasgow, and significantly less rain! Getting AroundAlthough life would be easier with a 4 wheel drive or car, it is possible to take public transport to the cottage. You can take the train from Glasgow to Greenock Harbour, the ferry to Dunoon, then a bus from the ferry terminal - just ask the driver to drop you up above Hillview Cottage above Calladh, there is a rambling pathway down and quite steep at the top. Please ask should you require further information; the bus times service from Dunoon are quite limited. Other Things to NoteGuests will be provided with an extensive information pack providing travel and access details as well as information on living the rustic life. You will also have noticed there is no electricity and no refrigeration - we supply 2 ice boxes and ice is readily available from the 2 village supermarkets. Most importantly, the last 250 metres of track is very bumpy and has 2 steep sections to contend with. Although we always manage up with our two wheeled drive car, it better suits a 4 wheeled drive - such feelings of seclusion and remoteness can often present such obstacles! There is a lay by at the bottom of this section of track where guests are welcome to leave their vehicles for the duration of their stay. It must be noted guests attempting the track do so entirely at their own risk.
