Cluny is a pretty semi detached property, located on the front of the mid Argyllshire ribbon settlement of Minard just off the A83. The house enjoys uninterrupted and often dramatic views across Loch Fyne from the north west corner of Achagoyle Bay.
Minard is located midway between Inveraray and Lochgilphead and has a primary school and church. The village of Furnace is about 3.5 miles to the north of Minard and has a shop/post office and primary school. Inveraray (12 miles to the north-east) and Lochgilphead (13 miles to the south-west) provide an excellent range of further local amenities, shops and professional services. The district is well served by both primary and secondary education with FE/HE college learning centre in the latter.
Glasgow, about 75 miles away, offers a full range of higher and further education services, as well as all the cultural and professional services normally connected with a major city. The A83 and A82 offer swift access to central Scotland with the closest rail link at Arrochar (34 miles) providing access to the main west coast line to Glasgow. The village is also served by a bus service which allows connections to Glasgow, Campbeltown and Oban via Inveraray or Lochgilphead.
The locality of Loch Fyne-side offers much in the way of outdoor pursuits including cross-country cycle routes, hill walks and challenging climbs; Brainport Heritage Trail and Solar Alignment just a short walk along the shores of Loch Fyne towards Minard Castle; the famous Crarae National Trust Gardens; events and entertainment in Minard and Furnace village halls; a cross-country drive to Loch Awe; and Auchindrain Museum reached by the river Leacainn Walk out of Furnace.
Mid-Argyll presents some of the most dramatic seascapes and landscapes on the West Coast. Sea, river and loch fishing is easily available, as are a number of organised private and commercial low ground shoots as well as deer-stalking. There are excellent opportunities for boating/yachting on Loch Fyne, leading not only to the Clyde estuary but also to the Crinan Canal across the Mull of Kintyre to the Hebrides and the Atlantic. The Lochgair and Minard Moorings Group offer mooring opportunities for prospective boat owners.
From Glasgow, proceed west on the M8 to Junction 30 and the Erskine Bridge. Turn left off the bridge onto the A82 and continue for about 25 miles to Tarbet. Then take the A83, signposted for Lochgilphead, for a further 24 miles around Loch Long and the end of Loch Fyne to Inveraray. Continue on the A83, passing through Furnace, towards Minard. Travel for circa 0.5 miles and the property is on the right-hand side.
