The house is about 1 miles north of the pretty village of Colintraive in a land and seascape known as The Kyles of Bute. The area is famous for its stunning natural beauty with deep and narrow sea lochs and high-sided glens providing a boating route through from the Clyde estuary to Arran. The house is set amid mature well stocked gardens, which has been strategically stocked to provide year round interest, colour, low maintenance and pleasant summer scents. There are abundant deer, red squirrels, extensive bird life, seals and sea birds in the area and visible from the house.
In Colintraive there is a short and regular 5 minute ferry crossing to the neighbouring Island of Bute. In the village there is a hotel with a bar area serving gastro food and an adjacent village shop and post office. The local primary school which starts from pre school/pre-5 is at Glendaruel, some 8 miles away, and secondary schooling is available at Dunoon Grammar, which enjoys an excellent reputation. There is a school bus run from Colintraive to both Glendaruel and Dunoon Grammar in the morning and afternoon to transport students to and from the schools.
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. There are leisure centres in Dunoon and a new leisure facility at Portavadie that includes a SPA, heated indoor pool and an outdoor heated infinity pool plus hot tubs. The recently established 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.
