Lovely two bed detached cottage on the shores of Kyles of Bute in the peaceful coastal village of Colintraive. In recent years the property has been upgraded, modernised and refurbished whilst retaining the character and charm. In addition to the two double bedrooms, Cul Mhor has a loch-facing sitting room with multi-fuel stove, country-style dining kitchen, modern bathroom and floored attic with recently installed Velux window. Externally, the wraparound garden is beautiful when in bloom whilst the garage offers parking for one vehicle or additional storage for garden equipment. With its magnificent and uninterrupted views of the Kyles of Bute, close proximity to the local amenities and general appeal this would make an ideal acquisition for anyone looking for a lovely holiday home or full time residence. Properties such as Cul Mhor rarely come on the open market and early viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
Approximately 30 minutes’ drive from Dunoon, Colintraive, which translates in Gaelic to ‘swimming strait’, is located on the west coast of the Cowal Peninsula facing the Kyles of Bute. A small, friendly village with a very hospitable hotel with restaurant and bar, post office / shop, village hall and bowling club. A regular ferry crosses from the village to the Isle of Bute.

Gardens and Garage
The gardens envelop the house and provide a lovely place to potter about or just take in the gorgeous surroundings. With a bit of love and attention the grounds could be restored to the colourful and interesting outdoor area it once was. The garage has power and offers parking for one vehicle, a workshop or additional storage for garden furniture and equipment.
Please note that some of the photos are historical dating back to 2018 when the garden was in full bloom and the property was fully furnished.
The last owner had also started to redesign the driveway, however the project was never finished, as seen in pictures. As a result, there has been a degree of ground slippage in the area adjacent to the property and surface water drainage improvements are required.
