Externally, the wonderful back garden really has something for everyone; seating areas, vegetable plots, trickling burns, lawned areas, a plethora of colourful plants and trees, timber outhouses and log stores and many interesting pathways and ‘hidden gardens’. Further, a large garage could also double up as a handy workshop or gallery.

Newton and adjoining village, Leachd, are approximately 2 miles past Strachur on the shores of Loch Fyne and are surrounded by roiling countryside and hills. Newton is situated perfectly for the short drive to Strachur as well as 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 immediate area there are local pubs, tea rooms, a golf course, post office, petrol station with well stocked shop, doctors, schools and playparks. It is the perfect location from escaping from the hustle and bustle of city life, but with everything you need pretty much on your doorstep.
