In an elevated position Byron Cottage is ideal for a single traveller or couple looking for a quiet break, as well as artists, nature lovers and people looking to relax. One mile from Lochgoilhead village.

LOCATION
Sitting on the private driveway leading to Bowater Cottage, Byron Cottage is tucked away in an elevated position, screened by trees and bushes from the neighbouring houses. Off road parking for one car in front of the cottage. Just over a mile to Lochgoilhead Village, and less than a mile to the leisure, entertainment and dining options available at the Drimsynie Holiday Village. We are also close to Loch Goil Cruisers, for hiring a boat on Loch Goil, and their Boat House Cafe. The views are over the head of Loch Goil to Ben Donich. Bring your binoculars to enjoy the bird life in the trees as well as the red squirrels which are often seen in the garden. Don’t be surprised if you see a deer walking on the slope behind the cottage.

INTRODUCING BYRON COTTAGE
There are steps, with a hand rail, leading up to the entrance so a stay at Byron best suits guests with good mobility. Patio deck area to the front with table and chairs. The cottage is an unusual design with lots of windows giving an open and bright feel to the place. Spacious open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area plus a bedroom with en-suite shower.

The cottage sits on a slope within a grassy area. There is a hillside garden to the rear, with mature trees and bushes, but the main garden feature is the rockery area that the cottage sits upon.

You will see from the gallery pictures that this is a modern and contemporary refurbishment aimed at providing a truly comfortable base to relax and enjoy.

Hello, I am Leonard. Welcome to Lochgoilhead Holidays I have been looking after holiday cottages and homes in my beautiful home area in Argyll for 28+ years. I have been in the travel business in the UK, Canada and Australia for 40 years. That adds up to a whole lot of experience. My home owners entrust their homes to me so that I can help, you the guest, find just the right property for your stay. I work with the housekeepers to make sure that the homes are ready for your arrival and are as described in their web descriptions. I live in Lochgoilhead and am available to you during your stay to answer any questions and to help you make the most out of your time in Scotland. Finding your holiday home is easy. Once you have confirmed your stay I will be in touch with a detailed map and directions as well as key collection information. You may think booking with a local agent is impersonal. Far from it. This is what I do, and even after all this time. I want you to come and enjoy what we have to offer. A word about reviews. Airbnb is built on relationships. At the end of your stay you will be asked for a review. There is some confusion here. Some guests are scoring based on the property - rather than the way I am handling the questions and the booking process. If you are happy with how I look after you, bear that in mind when scoring the review. Many thanks. Leonard
