Situation
Copeswood is situated in the picturesque coastal village settlement of Tighnabruaich on the west coast of Scotland. The house is situated in the coastal ribbon southern part of the village and it is located just off the little known quiet back road known as Poltalloch Road. The house enjoys a raised vanatage point from where there are quite spectacular and often dramatic outlooks to the Island of Bute adjacent and the highly picturesque and world-famous waterscape of the 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 about 0.9 miles away to the north and is a pleasant walk through the higher level woodland single track road, or via the lower level coastal road. The village has 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.
