Tour Scotland Mid Cottage Toward Dunoon Oban and Argyll Holiday Cottage. Built in 1934, this rather unusual lighthouse keeper’s cottage sits peacefully near the water’s edge, with views extending across the Clyde to the west coast, the Isle of Bute and beyond. Accessed along an unmade track, it offers newly refurbished, detached accommodation, just 100 yards from the sea. The southern Argyll peninsula remains unspoilt, with excellent walking and cycling terrain, and sheltered beaches, remote villages and islands brimming with wildlife, all to explore close by. For an insight into the rich heritage of this region there are plenty of historic houses, gardens and castles to admire, while Dunoon (8 miles) offers a traditional day out at the seaside.
