The house faces due south and there are views out over the flat fertile farmlands of Glendaruel and the craggy heather covered moorlands and mountains which surround it.
The Cowal Peninsula area is famous for its stunning natural scenic beauty with high-sided glens and deep and narrow sea lochs which provide a boating route through from the Clyde estuary to Arran, Loch Fyne and the fishing village of Tarbert and onwards through the Crinan Canal to the Western Isles.
Colintraive (9 miles to the south) has a hotel with a friendly bar and an enviable reputation for pub and restaurant cuisine, everyday provisions shop, post office, heritage centre, community garden and an all-weather bowling green. From Colintraive there is a short and regular 5-minute Calmac ferry crossing to the neighbouring Island of Bute. The main town on Bute is Rothesay where there are local shops, a supermarket and a further ferry to the Clyde coast. The other main centre in the area is Dunoon which provides further shops, supermarket and services, in addition to two competing ferry services across the Clyde. Excellent local medical services are delivered from Tighnabruaich.
There is a local primary school at Glendaruel and secondary schooling is available at Dunoon Grammar, which has an excellent reputation. A school bus runs from Colintraive to Dunoon Grammar in the morning and afternoon to transport students to and from school. It is possible for some of the students to board at the school.
The area offers much in the way of relaxing outdoor pursuits, including yachting and boating, golf, fishing, hill walking and country walks in an area rich in history. The Cowal Way stretches from Portavadie on Loch Fyne and travels for some 31 miles to Arrochar through some of the most dramatic and picturesque sea and landscapes on the west coast.
A scenic 9-hole golf course is at Kames, with further courses on the Island of Bute and at Dunoon. Sea, river and loch fishing are also available in the area as are a number of shoots run either commercially or by syndicates. Some of the local estates allow stalking by arrangement.
Local bus services run to Tighnabruaich, Rothesay and Dunoon.
