Waterfront Cottage with own Beach and Stunning Views Across The Clyde

Riverside holiday home in Dunoon with kitchen
** Please check the location to be sure there's not a ferry crossing between the cottage and the rest of your plans. The location is in Toward, near Dunoon, on the Cowal Peninsula. It sometimes shows as Isle of Bute in searches as it's so close, but it is across the water! **

Bihar is an exeptionally bright cottage set in mature gardens running down to its own pink rocky beach on the Firth of Clyde.

It's impossible not to relax with the ever changing stunning view of the tidal waters, the passing Bute ferries, military ships, submarines and summer cruise ships. Many hours can be passed watching the magically calming view.

Entered via the long gravel drive with easy parking for multiple vehicles, Bihar is a charming cottage of maybe 100 years, operating as a holiday cottage for many of these years.

The entrance hall leads on to a ground floor twin bedroom and small double bedroom, both with views across the water, served by the ground floor family bathroom.

There is a large open plan living and dining room with windows to 3 sides and magnificent views across the water to Wemyss bay. In addition to the central heating, there is a wonderful log burner that can really belt out the heat on a winter evening spent slouching on the huge tartan sofa, or playing the tuned Yamaha U1 piano.

The well equipped kitchen includes a dishwasher, electric hob, electric fan oven and fridge freezer.

A small laundry room off the kitchen offers a further sink, plus washing machine and tumble drier.

Upstairs is a large bedroom with the best views in the house, a king sized bed and a small en suite shower and WC. There would be plenty of room for a couple of camp beds or similar in this room. Just ask and we can arrange.

Being further down the peninsula from Dunoon, Toward is on flatter ground and on a sunny day (it's often sunnier than the forecast!) offers sunshine all day long and into the evening. The midgies are less fond of Toward too as there are fewer trees and a slight breeze keeps them more under control than in many parts of the West coast.

Despite it's remote location, Bihar can be reached by public transport with the 489 bus meeting the Dunoon CalMac passenger ferry (see West Coast Motors Timetable) many times per day. The bus will stop where you ask the driver to, so you can get door to door service.

The water side garden has two hanging egg chairs to while away the hours and an outdoor bed for when sitting gets to be just too much effort. There is also a large BBQ and an outdoor table and chairs.

There's no shop, pub, supermarket, nightclub or helipad in Toward, but up the road in Innellan is a good pub/restaurant and a Post Office shop. A bit further up the road to Dunoon and there are pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and a cute cinema.

It's a great place to relax.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic property and view
Had a great time at Bihar. It's in a quiet spot with a beautiful view out to sea. Ideal for watching the passing boats, seals, dolphins and birds. Great base for day trips to the surrounding area for walks and cycle rides or we were equally happy enjoying the house sitting in front of the fire with a glass of wine. Would like to return.

We are just home following our 4 night stay at this property. The house is excellent, clean and spacious. We stay with our fogs and the front and back gardens where great for them, also a wee daily swim for them wads enjoyed. Is a short drive from a few villages, beach, attractions and dog walks. Would love to go back.

Perfect break with the family. The house was immaculate, all the amenities and more enabled a stress free rest. The view from the house is breathtaking, especially at sunrise.
