March Cottage is situated in the pretty Loch Long coastal settlement of Ardgartan which is at the very head of Loch Long just off the A83 in scenic Argyll & Bute.

Ardgartan is situated within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Scotland's first National Park, and with its near neighbour’s Arrochar & Tarbet, which are popular and attractive villages which sit on Loch Long and Loch Lomond respectively.

Arrochar village is located at the head of Loch Long and at the bottom of Glenloin. The surrounding lochs, mountains and glens are dominated by the Cobbler, the centre piece of the Arrochar Alps, which at 884 metres (2,900 ft) in height, is a Corbett, not quite a Munro. Despite falling just short of a Munro, it is one of the most impressive summits in the Southern Highlands and is also one of the most important sites for rock climbing in the Southern Highlands.

Arrochar has village services which include; a petrol station, post office, newsagents, pottery and craft gallery, licensed grocers and there are also welcoming country pubs and restaurants.

At Tarbet there is the opportunity to catch a passenger ferry to explore the rest of Loch Lomond and to view the exceptional scenery from the water. A hotel and several bed and breakfast businesses cater for visitors to the area, as does the Tarbet Tea Room. Tarbet also has a Post Office and seasonal Tourist Information Centre.

Primary schooling is available in Tarbet and the nearest state secondary school is Hermitage Academy. Lomond School in Helensburgh is the nearest independent school.

The A82 and A83 provide good road access to north and south. There is a good local bus service and the scenic West Highland Railway runs through the villages, with a station at Tarbet (Arrochar & Tarbet), from where trains carry passengers to and from destinations including London, Glasgow, Fort William, Mallaig and Oban. There is an early morning commuter rail service from Tarbet and Arrochar station to the centre of Glasgow. Glasgow international airport is 37.6 miles away.

Glasgow city is about 45 miles to the south and (as with most large cities) has an extensive range of retail districts, professional services and higher and further educational services. The Braehead and Silverburn retail villages are just outside the city proper.

The locality offers an extensive range of outdoor and leisure opportunities. For golf enthusiasts the acclaimed private members owned Loch Lomond Golf Club is 16.1 miles away on the west side of the loch and at 18.3 miles the Carrick Golf and Spa, which is located within the grounds of the Cameron House Estate which itself offers restaurant, leisure club and marina facilities.

Loch Lomond is the centrepiece of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park and is an area of dramatic natural scenic beauty. On all sides of the loch there are some of the most scenic and challenging walks and hill climbs in Scotland.

Loch Long & Loch Lomond both offer offer sailing, boating and water sports opportunities. Coastal sailing is available on Loch Long which leads to the Firth of Clyde and there are marina and chandlery services available at Rhu (18.2 miles).

Fishing is possible by permit on Loch Lomond and some of the surrounding rivers. Sea fishing is freely available on Loch Long.
