    The Dutchmans is a stunning, detached property situated on the quiet coastal road overlooking Loch Riddon on the Cowal Peninsula. This spectacular self catering cottage has lovely views over the sea loch and surrounding hills from all main rooms. It has been finished to a very good standard with solid oak floors downstairs and oak finishes throughout. The cottage has a state of the art air heat recovery system supplying the underfloor heating and a heat recovery ventilation system. The main living space is open plan combining the living, dining and kitchen areas into a fantastic living space for all the family to gather. The living room has two large windows ensuring guests can enjoy a great view when relaxing and a wonderful open fire with oak mantle piece. The kitchen is fully fitted and includes a large, wooden family dining table. Downstairs has a spacious double bedroom with dressing area, TV, DVD player and an en-suite. Upstairs has three further bedrooms all with loch views. The shoreline is accessed via the other side of the quiet country lane and a canoe or kayak can be easily launched from here. A boat mooring is available on request to the owner and boats can be launched locally. Fishing is available from the rocky shoreline.

    The wildlife here is fantastic; even from the comfort of the cottage one can see a variety of bird life, especially at low tide when a large sandbank is exposed. Otters have regularly been spotted in front of the house. Seals and gannets are also regular visitors. The Dutchmans is a great base from which to explore this stunningly beautiful area and to sample the wide range of activities on offer. The Argyll Forest, part of the simply gorgeous Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, is on the doorstep and has numerous forest tracks, marked walks, cycle ways and wonderful waterfalls to explore. Walkers should seek out the Cowal Way, a long distance walk running from Portavadie to Arrochar. A number of public gardens are located in the area such as Ardkinglas, Crarae and Benmore Botanic Gardens with its avenue of giant Redwood trees. There are 3 golf courses available locally and many opportunities for a spot of fishing. At Colintraive there is a short ferry crossing over to the picturesque Isle of Bute and a visit to the fabulous Victorian Gothic Mount Stuart House is a must. Tighnabruaich has a sailing school and a selection of small shops. Dunoon has a good centre for shopping, leisure facilities and a small cinema. Inveraray is also a great day out with the Castle, the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll and the 19th century Inveraray Jail both well worth a visit. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    The Dutchmans can be booked together with Inveruel (UK5067) to accommodate up to 18 guests.

    I chose The Dutchmans because I liked the appearance and interior layout - having everything we needed on the ground floor i.e. bedroom with en-suite and walk in shower is a must. We were not disappointed. The house was spacious,warm and had great views across the loch. Although a bit remote, it was only 2.1/2 mls from Colintraive which has a nice hotel and operates a shop from about 9am to noon for sundries. Also ferry to Isle of Bute operates from there. Over the years we have always self catered for most of the holiday and the house had all we needed for that purpose. We did eat out 2/3 occasions in the evenings and always had lunch somewhere on our travels. We were very satisfied with our holiday.

    Thanks for a lovely time staying at your beautiful house. The weather was unkind but we still had a great time. The house is so spacious and the views are fantastic. We really enjoyed having the fire in every day. We hope to return again. Thanks

    A lovely cottage - perfect for 8 people - with beautiful views across Loch Riddon which is immediately in front of the property. The water was so calm and perfect for Rowing and Paddle-boarding. The Dutchmans was very clean and well equipped, with lovely bathrooms (2 en suite), although water pressure could be better. It was a lovely touch to find a New Zealand wine in the fridge and tablet and cookies for the kids! We would highly recommend this property

    We had an amazing holiday and the house was exceptional. The views from the house were so nice and the surrounding areas just what we were looking for. We have three small kids so the location and the remoteness suited us well. However, please keep in mind there is a limited choice when it comes to restaurants and stores nearby. We would definitely return to the house and I can highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore Scotland.
