It is close to the village of Taynuilt, a 20-minute walk away offering the convenience of shops, hotel, café and a golf course. Perfect for either a relaxing family holiday or as a base for nature-lovers, this property is quiet and rural, yet conveniently close to the A85 for easy access to Argyll attractions.
Located on the edge of a native woodland, it is a lovingly furnished highland lodge, offering plenty of space with woodland and mountain views from every window. The lodge is surrounded by private decking with a private hot tub, the perfect place to relax in the crisp mountain air and enjoy the stunning views. It can accommodate a larger family or group across four bedrooms, all with beautiful views and served by three luxury bathrooms.
There are two lodges in total sitting on 50 acres of natural land with a private loch. They are situated next to each other, yet have plenty of privacy and their own private hot tub each.
Statement from the interior designer:
Using the beauty and simplicity of the natural surroundings the interior design of the Lodge is designed with comfort and effortless style in mind. From tree bark, timber, natural weaves and woven textures to marquetry inlaid wood design to the everchanging colours of the landscape as contrasting pop of colour. These interiors allow the outside-in! The perfect spaces to get away from it all!
