Creggans Cottage is a detached house in a private situation with a quiet lane access and set high above the pretty coastal village of Tighnabruaich.

Creggans Cottage is situated just off a quiet country access lane known as Back Road in the coastal settlement of Tighnabruaich.

The house is in an elevated situation and from the ground floor and gardens there are glimpses of the views to the Island of Bute, the famous Kyles of Bute and stretching south to the island of Inchmarnock. The views improve from the first floor level.

The coastal settlement of Tighnabruaich is the mid Argyllshire and highly picturesque coastal village on the west coast of Scotland which is famous the world over for the highly scenic waterway known as ‘The Kyles of Bute’.

The protected anchorage and moorings are always lively with the comings and goings of 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 pleasant walk down the leafy access lane 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.

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.

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.
