The Experience

You’re in a tiny hamlet just one field away from the shores of Loch Fyne and surrounded by wildlife: watch out for deer, red squirrels, seals, dolphins and osprey. Nip down to the little beach of rock and shale for a bracing swim or to launch your canoe or paddle board and bring binoculars for a myriad of sea birds at low tide.

The living room is upstairs to make the most of the views and there’s a proper wicker hamper full of delicious local stuff – Loch Fyne ales, a bottle of wine and sausages, bacon, eggs and bread for your first breakfast. You’ll also find the ‘ready steady cook’ cupboard full of dried and tinned goods for a supper if you arrive late. Then there’s the drinks bar – just replace what you finish.

Wild weather days are for staying by the wood-burning stove and watching the unfolding drama of sky and sea through many windows. You’ll feel very close to nature and a million miles from everyday cares.

Reviews

From the moment we met Jenny who guided us down the “Jurassic” track to the cottage our stay was memorable for all the right reasons! The cottage was immaculate with everything little extra you could hope for, amazing hamper, games for the children, luxury toiletries and even white tiger balm for those midge and cleg bites! Argyll delivered and we had a week of wall to wall sunshine where we meandered through the mown grass down to the Loch and drank our morning coffee, followed by rock jumping, SUP and kayaking with the children! Beach BBQs and sundowners followed! Thank you Jenny & team x

Sabby, Edinburgh

The stable cottage is the perfectly peaceful getaway! Absolutely stunning setting on the edge of the loch. The cottage itself is just gorgeous, every little detail has been thought of and it really does feel like a home away from home. It is by far the best holiday rental place we’ve stayed in - it has everything you need and more! We had a fantastic week here, there’s so much to do in the surrounding area - we went for a trip to the Isle of Gigha which was just stunning, went horse riding , took a trip into Inveraray and enjoyed lots of lovely walks around the cottage. Can’t wait to go back!

Arianna, Edinburgh

Simply gorgeous skies, heavenly hills, wonderful forest walks, wild swimming in the loch and islands to hop to from nearby. Scotland at its best and probably the least touristy part to visit.

Nicola, Sawday's Inspector

Wonderful cottage. Exceeded expectations. Superb location for exploring local area. Jenny our host was waiting for us and it was like having our own private concierge. Beautiful and clean with everything we needed and more for the week. It was so good we’ve booked again for New Year. We can’t wait!

Location

The neighbourhood

Walk straight into Kenmore Forest for magnificent views down to Kintyre and Loch Fyne. Inveraray, a 12-minute drive, is a small town (but a Royal Borough) with independent shops and cafés and a castle to visit - the family seat of the Duke of Argyll. The George pub serves great food. Oban is 45 mins for ferries to Mull and Iona or head to Gigha by boat from Tarbert for white sandy beaches.

Local points of interest from Jenny Gilmour

  • Stable Cottage is just a short walk across a meadow from Pennymore Point and the beautiful shoreline of Loch Fyne, perfect for soaking in the breathtaking scenery of Argyll and taking a wild swim dip or paddle boarding in the calm waters.
  • Along the way you may even catch sight of seals, dolphins, eagles, numerous sea birds, deer and red squirrels, as the hamlet of Pennymore is also surrounded by the 3000 acre Forest of Kenmore which hosts numerous fantastic bike trails and forest walks.
  • The settlement of Pennymore is steeped in history, with records showing ownership by the MacIver family as far back as 1479, and later owners and visitors include the Duke of Argyll, Waterloo veteran Major Donald Campbell and even Queen Victoria!
  • Stable Cottage is just a 10 minute drive from the historic Argyll coastal town of Inveraray, where you'll find pubs, cafes and restaurants, including the characterful George Hotel, the Brambles tea-room and the acclaimed Samphire Seafood Restaurant.
  • Attractions close by include Inveraray Castle & Gardens (as featured in Downtown Abbey), Inveraray Jail, Loch Fyne Ales Brewery, the ancient Achindrain Township, the Adrkinglas Woodland, which houses the UK’s tallest tree, and the beautiful Crarae Gardens.
  • The cottage is the perfect base to explore the west coast of Scotland with day trips taking you south to the wonderful Kintyre Peninsula (a trip to the beautiful Isle of Gigha a MUST!) and then north to the majestic beauty of Glencoe and the Inner Hebrides
