The Anchorage is a Charming Bungalow in the heartlands of Mid Argyll, with stunning views of Loch Fyne, a sea loch location in the West of Scotland. The property sits in its own grounds with ample parking, open fire in the sitting room and summer house and patio in the grounds, both of which had loch views.
The bungalow comfortably sleeps 4, (one double and one twin bedroom) and the spacious living area accommodates a bed sette as well as a dining area. There is one bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen and kitchen table. Children and pets are most welcome. There are outbuildings to store any outdoors equipment.
The location is ideal for a peaceful holiday, with spectacular walks from the house - the shore line walk to an ancient solar alignment in the direction of Minard Castle (if you are quiet you might see otters swimming in the bay), the walk (or cycle) behind the house up forest trails and farm tracks towards hill lochs, Ben Ghlass and a deserted settlement in the hills, or along the main road to Crarae Scottish National Trust Gardens, spectacular in spring and early summer.

The whole area is very atmospheric and steeped in history. Inveraray (10 miles) is a magnet for tourists with its Castle, museums, restaurants and tea rooms. The Loch Fyne Hotel has a liesure suite and swimming pool.
In the other direction, (about 20 miles) favorite locations with spectacular views are the Crinan Canal along to the Crinan basin, Dunaad (a hill top where the early Scottish Kings were crowned), Tayvallich, Kilmartin, Carnasserie Castle and the Island of Kerrera beside Oban. The views traveling further south are equally good as the road skirts the shores of Loch Fyne almost all the way to Tarbert, the beautiful Isle of Ghia, the white sand and surf of Westport beach and Campbeltown where you can walk across to the island of Davaar at low tide. Or head by the back road where you can take the ferry to Arran and it's beautiful Brodick Castle and Gardens, or visit Skipness Castle.

The Anchorage is also a good location for hill walkers. In just over an hour you can reach the Cruachan range or, slightly further away, the Arrochar Alps, the hills of Crianlarich and the spectacular gorges of Glencoe where tourists stop and gaze from the lay bys as they pass through the dramatic landscape. The Lost Valley can be reached from there, but great care is advised. If going to Glencoe, the single track route via Glen Orchy affords the best views.

Further on, you come to the village of Kinlochleven with the Ice Factor, for learning to climb or ice climb. There is also a watersports centre in Ballachulish with a range of facilities and experiences available. The Ballachulish Bridge enables you to drive all the way round Loch Leven / or carry on to Fort William. The coastal views continue as you look across to the Morvern Peninsula and further dramatic mountain landscapes. From Fort William there is a choice of Train to Mallaig (including the popular Hogwart Express) or the road which leads to the lovely white sands of Morar and stunning views out to the Western Isles. From Mallaig itself you can take a boat to Inverie and spend a while on the remote Knoydart peninsula. The Ferry to Skye still also runs from here.

From The Anchorage, another favorite day trip is the Cowal peninsula to the town of Dunoon, visiting Ben More Gardens en route, or via Collintriave to the Island of Bute with its town of Rothesay, lovely beaches, Castle and the stunning Mount Stuart House and Gardens.
The other main asset The Anchorage has to offer is for those who like to fish, as one of the best locations in the district is the headland point along the shore of Loch Fyne, in view from the front windows. It is also a good place for people who have their own cannoe, or who enjoy other water sports. Some of the visitors have also described life changing experiences on sea life boat trips, which are available now from Crinan Harbour and Oban as seals abound and Porpoises and Dolphins are now swimming in our coastal waters. Come and enjoy.
