A really well finished detached house in the heart of Tighnabruaich with fine and often dramatic views to the world famous and scenic waterscape of the Kyles of Bute.

Appin Cottage Middle is situated in the picturesque coastal village of Tighnabruaich on the west coast of Scotland. The house is situated ibn the heart of the village and on an elevated site.

From its raised vantage point there are quite spectacular and often dramatic outlooks to the Island of Bute adjacent, south to Inchmarnock and north to the highly picturesque and world-famous Kyles of Bute.

Tighnabruaich is a well known sheltered anchorage with moorings that are always lively with the comings and goings of pleasure boating and yachting craft. One of its highlights must surely be the regular berthing of the famous Waverley, reputed to be the world’s last sea going paddle steamer. Always a sight to behold as she berths at Tighnabruaich pier with day trippers.

The village centre is a comfortable short walk and offers a Doctor’s surgery and local amenities that cater for everyday needs. A bus service runs from Tighnabruaich to both Rothesay and Dunoon.

The city of Glasgow is 55 miles distant (via a pleasant boat crossing to Gourock) and has numerous retail districts and all the higher educational, cultural and leisure services normally associated with a major international centre.

Tighnabruaich has a reputable and award winning primary school and secondary is available at Dunoon Grammar.

The area is famous for its dramatic natural scenic beauty; yachtsmen and women the world over sail through the scenic Kyles from the Clyde marinas and on through the Crinan canal and out to the Hebridean islands. A new marina and restaurant complex at Portavadie is 4 miles to the west and offers facilities such as a leisure centre with indoor and outdoor infinity pool and beauty treatment rooms. Portavadie also hosts facilities supporting great mountain bike trails in the area.

The area offers much in the way of relaxing outdoor pursuits. Tighnabruaich Golf Club is a scenic and challenging 9-hole golf course. There is tennis and inevitably, a famous sailing school.

Tighnabruaich lies on “Argyll’s Secret Coast”, which stretches from Strachur at the top of Loch Fyne round the coast to Colintraive. It is an area of stunning natural beauty where there are countless opportunities to discover peaceful locations. Nearby activities include walks in forests or along the coast, fishing, kayaking or sailing and enjoying the wildlife.

Appin Cottage Middle is a typical west of Scotland detached 2 storey house which is presented in immaculate condition both inside and out.

Externally the house is of painted stone finish in distinctive pastel shade and all is under a slated roof. Internally, the house displays good use of engineered flooring hardwoods, quality kitchen and bathroom ware as well as complimentary coloured, deluxe range ceramics and floor tiles.
