4 bedroom accommodation in Colintraive

Located in: Colintraive »
Boasting its own private beach, this spacious modern cottage is just fantastic for group get-togethers or families. . Tucked away in a small corner of Argyll’s Secret Coast, one of the most enchanting parts of the west of Scotland, is Tigh-na-Creige - the ‘house on the crag.’ This recently renovated property in 2019 is the perfect way to live the dream of a secret cottage by the sea.

Warm, welcoming and contemporary, the cottage commands breathtaking views of the sea on Loch Riddon just north of the celebrated Kyles of Bute. Nestling within the mountains of the Cowal Peninsula and 5 acres of landscaped grounds, this is a captivating waterfront location with its own sheltered beach and private grass slipway.

Built on one level, the owner has remodelled the space so the kitchen flows seamlessly into the dining area, creating a wonderfully hospitable place. It offers roomy open-plan living, perfect for enjoying a good book or a favourite film in front of the cosy log-burning fire. Tigh-na-Creige’s kitchen is very comprehensively equipped, with superb kitchenware and an inspirational chef’s library. Enthusiastic cooks will also be impressed by very high quality local produce which includes meat from the Isle of Bute and real ale, as well as seafood from Loch Fyne. The oak laminate floor, oak doors and pale walls create a relaxing contemporary feel, blended with the warmth of a traditional cosiness. There is atmospheric lighting, while numerous pieces from the owner’s private art collection add colour, individuality and quirkiness.

Guests enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea and the spectacular scenery of the cottage’s gardens and woodland. Loch Riddon is a designated National Scenic Area with a famous viewing platform on the opposite shore. The area has featured in many Visit Scotland commercials because of its beauty. Which is why the outside is now an extension of the interior space, so guests feel part of the spectacular seaside environment. Just beside the kitchen there is a stylish sun trap deck area with its own dry-stone walling and terraced gardens providing a secluded spot for dining, with a log-burning chiminea for the cooler evenings.

The front balcony provides the ideal spot to watch the sun go down over the glen whilst enjoying a glass of whisky. You may see some of the wildlife that Scotland is also famous for, including nesting ospreys, golden and sea eagles, red deer and red squirrels. The seas are home to otters, seals, sea lions, porpoises, dolphins, sharks and even whales. Binoculars are thoughtfully provided.

Set on the shoreline, this cottage has access to a mooring (by arrangement), and is perfect for joggers, walkers and cyclists wanting to take in the views. The sea welcomes kayakers, sailors and fishermen, while stalking and coarse angling are available locally.

Immediate local history covers a Viking battle in the glen, the destruction of the neighbouring castle in the Argyll Rising and training grounds for World War II’s Dambusters and mini submarines!

Argyll’s Secret Coast boasts isolated beaches, pretty villages, delightful fishing ports and some great local dining in pubs or the celebrated Botanica or Inver restaurants. Popular tourist attractions include the spectacular Portavadie Marina, Mount Stuart, Inverary Castle, the towering trees of Ardkinglass, Benmore Botanical Gardens and seasonal visits to Rothesay and Tighnabruaich from the world’s only ocean-going paddle steamer, ‘The Waverley’. The Isles of Bute, Arran, Jura and Islay are all easily reached by ferry.
