Ardkinglas Estate is set in a fantastic location and is a beautiful area to explore. Ardkinglas Apartment is a self contained, 2 bedroomed, ground floor apartment attached to the magnificent Ardkinglas House and benefiting not only from the wonderful setting but also a small private garden. The mansion house stands at the head of Loch Fyne looking out to Inveraray to the south and Glen Fyne to the north. The renowned Ardkinglas Woodland Garden is within walking distance of the apartment and is famous for its champion trees including “the mightiest conifer in Europe”. The garden has something to offer for both garden enthuisasts and for those seeking a peaceful stroll in an idyllic setting; entrance to the garden is free to those staying in the apartment. Five minutes away by car is the famous Loch Fyne Oyster Bar and The Tree Shop with it’s specialist plants, craft shop and café. Next door is “Here We Are” a locally run information centre.
