Property Details

3 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom

Set in a truly beautiful location, Drimdarroch Cottage is a modern detached bungalow with panoramic views of Loch Fyne and the Knapdale Hills from its stunning location in the quiet and peaceful village of Strathlachlan, on the outskirts of Strachur. The bright and airy house comprises a spacious loch-facing sitting room with open fire, dining kitchen with views to the fields and hills at the rear, three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Externally, a full-width decking at the front makes the most of the exquisite vista whilst the back garden is laid mainly to lawn with a trickling stream and an equally gorgeous view. A chipped stone parking area for several vehicles further enhances the property. For several years, the cottage has been used as a lucrative holiday let by the current owners, who live in the neighbouring Drimdarroch House, which is also available for purchase through Waterside Property. This will undoubtedly appeal to anyone looking for a holiday home or a complete life-changing opportunity in an enviable part of the beautiful Argyll countryside and must be seen to be fully appreciated. 

Surrounded by rolling countryside and hills, and on the shores of Loch Fyne, Strachur is situated perfectly for commuting to Dunoon, the bustling capital of Cowal, the Royal Burgh of Inveraray, or Loch Lomond but is still only little more than an hour away from Glasgow. In the area there are local pubs, tea rooms, a golf course, post office, a petrol station with well stocked shop, doctors, schools and playparks. It is the perfect location from escaping the hustle and bustle of city life, but with everything you want on your doorstep.

Sitting Room, Dining Kitchen, Three Double Bedrooms and Family Bathroom

Continue on the A886 after Strachur for approximately 2 miles then turn off at the minor road B8000, marked ‘Newton / Leachd’ then take the road on the left signposted ‘Kilfinan’. Drive for approximately one mile and you will meet the long driveway to the cottage, plus three other properties including Drimdarroch House.

The main entrance to the cottage is at the front, off the decking, with anti-slip surface to the door, which opens to the hallway and on to all rooms. Further access can be gained at the rear from the utility section of the kitchen.
