There are many other great rental properties to choose from - please have a look!

This bright holiday cottage in Argyll is part of an attractive white-washed building and set in gorgeous grounds. The situation is idyllic - on the shores of Loch Etive, which is described as the most beautiful sea loch on the west coast of Scotland. There is lots to do in the area - picturesque and empty beaches, fabulous walking, and breathtakingly beautiful countryside to enjoy. You can take an amazing boat trip down Loch Etive and admire the scenery and look for seals and other wildlife - if you are lucky you may spot a golden eagle soaring in the hills above.

Taynuilt is a very attractive village and you can explore the historic ironworks, play golf, visit some of the gorgeous Argyll gardens in the area, fish for salmon, or explore the natural beauty of the area on foot or bicycle. There are some excellent places to eat near Holly Cottage, and Inverawe Smokehouse (just 10 mins walk away) is well worth a visit - a perfect place to stock up on delicious smoked goodies to eat for easy meals on your self-catering holiday. This area of the west coast is an ideal spot for a holiday - the famous natural beauty and the deserted beaches are amazing.
