Situation
The Galens is situated within the coastal ribbon settlement of Kames on the very pretty and famous Kyles of Bute.

The village of Kames sits just to the south of Tighnabruaich; perhaps its rather better known neighbour.

The house sits in an elevated position where there are aspects to the neighbouring island of Bute, the waterscape of the famous Kyles of Bute, north to the sheltered anchorages at Tighnabruaich and south towards the island of Inchmarnock.

Kames has its own hotel, post office and shop which easily caters for everyday needs and requirements. The centre of Tighnabruaich is about 1 miles to the north and is a well known sheltered anchorage with moorings, that are always lively with the coming and going of boating and yachting craft. The village centre offers local amenities and further shops that cater for everyday needs and requirements. A bus service runs from Kames via Tighnabruaich to both Rothesay and Dunoon.

Portavadie Marina is 3.3 miles away and has in recent years seen significant investment in creating a modern state of the art Marina infrastructure, with associated chandlery, restaurant, accommodation and spa facilities. The marina is fast gaining a reputation among the sailing communities as a must go to destination and many drive to the marina for culinary days and evenings out.

Tarbert is 7.9 miles to the west and there is a ferry service from Portavadie direct to Tarbert.

The city of Glasgow is 55 miles distant (albeit interrupted by a not unpleasant 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 or Tarbert via a short crossing from Portavadie.

The area is famous for its dramatic natural scenic beauty; yachtsmen and women around the world sail through the scenic Kyles from the Clyde marinas and on up through Loch Fyne to Ardrishaig through the Crinan canal and out to the Hebridean islands.

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.
