About the property

A wonderfully remote feel to this cottage offering a digital detox holiday

Welcome to Glen Fyne

The A83 is the main route from Loch Lomond to Inveraray. It takes you over the Rest and be Thankful pass, always worth stopping for views of the Arrochar Alps. Carry on around the head of Loch Fyne before leaving the main road and entering Glen Fyne. A wonderful scenic way to arrive.

You will find the cottage 2.5 miles along a private road. Most likely the only traffic you will come across are the highland cows as they wander freely along the road. This is a remote and magical setting.

The cottage is in a hamlet of 4 houses and is across the road from the River Fyne.

For hill walkers, Beinn Bhuidhe is just to the north, while several other Munros are within easy reach. There are plenty of other less demanding hills around the glen to choose from, and also a beautiful easy walk along the track that follows the River Fyne 4 miles to the head of the glen.

There’s a choice of places to eat around the shores of Loch Fyne,- the original Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, the Tree Shop, Fyne Ales and the Cairndow Stagecoach Inn. Inveraray is 20 minutes away, with many shops and restaurants.

The Property

The cottage is simply finished, but most importantly, it is warm and comfortable. It is perfect to come home after a day out to fire up the wood burning stove and enjoy a meal at the table, complete with mountain views.

You are deep in the glen and surrounded by the mountains, no surprise then that you are out of reach of mobile phones, television – and broadband. This is the complete digital detox experience – and is all the better for it. You may well arrive with stress – but you’ll not be taking it home with you. This is a holiday for watching DVD’s, playing cards, board games or puzzles, or reading. Deeply relaxing.

Glen Fyne Cottage is available all year. Short breaks are welcome.

What the guests say

Exceptional There is no double bed.  The electric shower has poor, although adequate, water pressure. This cottage is great place for lovers of quiet countryside or the mountains.  Recently refurbished, the cottage is clean and comfortable.  The kitchen is well equipped, with good provision of tea, coffee, sugar, oil, salt and pepper.  There is good electric heating in the cottage, and this can be augmented with the wood stove.  Logs provided.  There is plenty of space for hanging and storing walking equipment.  Although there is no TV reception, there is a TV and DVD player.
