Situation
Arkaig is situated in the Loch Fyne side coastal village of Strachur which is a coastal ribbon development of mixed property styles in southern Argyll at the sheltered confluence of highland glens and Loch Fyne.

Strachur and Loch Fyne are well known for their natural scenic beauty which has always drawn people to the area to live, holiday and enjoy weekend breaks.

The village has a Post Office and café, a retail service station, an excellent Medical Centre with in-house pharmacy, and a vibrant Community Hall, all of which cater for most everyday needs and requirements. Glasgow is about 60 miles distant and offers a full range of higher and further educational services as well as all the cultural and professional services normally connected with a major city.

There are a number of restaurants, all with menus that encompass the term “Scotland’s Natural Larder”; these include Loch Fyne Oysters, The Creggans Inn and Invercottage Restaurant.

Dunoon is approximately 18.4 miles away with Glasgow Airport at approximately 53 miles distant via Loch Lomondside.

Primary schooling is available in Strachur and secondary schooling is available at Dunoon. The nearest independent school is Helensburgh at 37.8 miles.

The A83 and A82 provide access to central Scotland. Arrochar has a main line rail station with a service to and from Glasgow city centre and a sleeper to London. The frequent Western Ferry service between McInroy’s Point and Hunter’s Quay provides alternative travel to Glasgow and the west of mainland Scotland.

The area offers much in the way of outdoor pursuits including cycle routes, challenging hill climbs, walks and several golf courses. The recently established Cowal Way stretches from Portavadie in the West and travels eastwards for 31 miles through some of the most dramatic and picturesque sea and landscapes in the west coast. Sea, river and loch fishing are also available in the area as are a number of commercially run shoots. Some of the local estates allow stalking by arrangement.

For sailors, the sea lochs of the west of Scotland offer safe anchorages as well as spectacular coastal sailing. There are marina and chandlery services at Rhu, Inverkip, Portavadie and Dunoon.
