Old Kilmun House
Holy Loch, Argyll, West coast Scotland
This is a truly luxurious large holiday house set in 2 1/2 acres of glorious private gardens on the edge of Holy Loch in Argyll. It has so many facilities and things to do that you have no need to stray far - it is one of the most comfortable and well-equipped holiday houses available in Scotland. There are open fires in the dining room and sitting room - lots of room to relax in and be cosy in front of a real fire. There is a large hot tub, trampoline, a billiard room, golf clubs, and gorgeous gardens to relax in. If you don't want to cook then there is also an excellent caterer that you can use - whether just for one meal or to cater for your whole stay - a huge bonus for a self-catering holiday.
Old Kilmun House is situated in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and adjacent to the Argyll Forest Park. It is in a perfect location for exploring the delights of the west coast of Scotland and the Cowal Peninsula. Only 3 miles away is Benmore Botanic Gardens - amazing gardens planted by the Younger family (who used to own Old Kilmun House) and now part of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. There are fantastic trees (including the tallest in the UK) and an excellent tea shop.
There is so much to see and do in the area - spectacular scenery, with the Kyles of Bute, Maccrahanish, Mull of Kintyre and Loch Fyne nearby. The walking is fantastic - there are lots of great walks from the house and plenty more in the local area. Cycling is an enjoyable way to take in the scenery and golf and fishing are also very good in the area - clubs are provided too so you can have a go even if you are a novice! The house is within walking distance of the magical and enchanting Pucks Glen (20 mins walk). There are some excellent pubs nearby (some within walking distance) and the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar is just half an hour away - a gourmet experience.
This is a fantastic large holiday house - great if you are a large party or 2 or 3 families wanting to rent a self-catering house in Scotland together. The sea is nearby - perfect for children - and there are so many luxury extras at the house everyone will have a fabulous holiday here (children can spend many happy hours bouncing on the trampoline!). If you use their caterer to provide food then even the normal cook will have a break too! Also the perfect venue for a small intimate wedding - or the venue for a wellbeing and yoga retreat - with a yurt available. This is the most flexible and luxurious Scottish country house.
