Drimdarroch & Drimdarroch Cottage is a quite delightful and very pleasing package of assets situated in the sheltered sylvan environs of Strathlachlan on the west coast of Scotland. The house is set amid mature, well cared for gardens which are stock fence protected.

Strachur is in southern Argyll at the sheltered confluence of highland glens and Loch Fyne, and Strathlachlan is the glen that connects Newton and Castle Lachlan and the minor road that carries on down the eastern side of Loch Fyne to Otter Ferry and further south to Portavadie and Tighnabruaich.

Drimdarroch & Drimdarroch Cottage is set in generous gardens and from its west facing position there are panoramic views over Loch Fyne. The rear of the property offers lovely open aspects out over the woodlands of the glen.

Strachur (5 miles north) is a delightful and very pretty Loch Fyne side Argyllshire coastal village. Strachur and Loch Fyne are well known for their natural scenic beauty which has always drawn people to the area to live, holiday and enjoy weekend breaks.

The village has a Post Office and café, a retail service station, an excellent medical centre with in-house pharmacy, and a vibrant community hall, all of which cater for most everyday needs and requirements. Glasgow is about 66 miles distant and offers a full range of higher and further educational services as well as all the cultural and professional services normally connected with a major city.

There are a number of friendly restaurants and country pubs, all with menus that encompass the term "Scotland's Natural Larder"; these include Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, The Creggans Inn and Inver Cottage Restaurant which is 1.4 miles away, within walking distance and on the shore of Loch Fyne.

Dunoon is approximately 22 miles away with Glasgow Airport at approximately 58 miles distant via Loch Lomond.

Primary schooling is available in Strachur and secondary schooling (with optional boarding) is available at Dunoon. The nearest independent school is Helensburgh at 35 miles.

The A83 and A82 provide access to central Scotland. Arrochar has a main line rail station with a service to and from Glasgow city centre and a sleeper to London. The frequent Western ferry service between McInroy's Point and Hunters Quay provides alternative travel to Glasgow and the west of mainland Scotland.

Situated on the outskirts of Scotland's first National Park, the area offers much in the way of outdoor pursuits including cycle routes, challenging hill climbs, walks and several golf courses. The recently established Cowal Way stretches from Portavadie in the west and travels eastwards for 31 miles through some of the most dramatic and picturesque sea and mountain landscapes in the west coast.

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.
