Situation
12 Baycroft is situated in the Loch Fyne side coastal village of Strachur. Strachur is in southern Argyll at the sheltered confluence of highland glens and the sea loch of Loch Fyne. For the most part, the village is formed by the ribbon development that runs along the coast. 12 Baycroft is to the southern side of the village and it enjoys an elevated setting from where there are wonderful sea and landscape aspects across Loch Fyne with the small marina pontoon and sheltered anchorage in the foreground.

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 and Sports Pavilion, all of which cater for most everyday needs and requirements. Glasgow is about 61 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 several restaurants, all with menus that encompass the term “Scotland’s Natural Larder”; these include Loch Fyne Oysters, The Creggans Inn and Inver Restaurant. The George Hotel at Inveraray enjoys an enviable reputation for serving seasonal local produce.

Dunoon is a scenic drive approximately 17 miles away with Glasgow Airport at approximately 53 miles distant via Loch Lomondside and Oban approximately 58 miles.

The A83 & 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 Hunters Quay provides travel to Glasgow and the west of mainland Scotland or alternatively Argyll Ferries run from Dunoon to Gourock.

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. The coastline of Cowal Peninsula is fast becoming known as Argyll’s secret coast by Welcome to Scotland.

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.
