Acharossan House is situated on a beautiful 1200 acre working farm on the shores of Loch Fyne. It is a sensational all year round holiday destination in a corner of Argyll with unspoilt natural beauty offering the chance to either relax and enjoy the peace and quiet or fill every day with a different activity or trip. It is the perfect base in which to explore the area where you will find many local historical places of interest very close by, including ruins, historic houses and ancient clan sites of Lamont, McEwan and MacLachlan and Kilfinan Church which dates back to the 13th Century or slightly further away is Inverary Castle. The ruins of Ascog Castle are only a few miles away. Here you can walk for as long as you want to taking in the stunning scenery, fresh air and it's perfect for bird watching too.

A visit to the Portavadie Marina will keep everyone in the family entertained whether they are a boat enthusiast or not.

Exploring the natural coastline by foot or take to the roads on the bike there are loads of activities close by.

Enjoy a round of golf on the scenic Kyles of Bute 9 hole Golf Course or many other courses including Tarbert, Rothesay, Inveraray and Dunoon.

Tighnbruaich Sailing School is only a short drive away. There are courses suitable for adults and children from beginners to improver.

Another seasonal must do is a trip down the Kyles of Bute on the famous paddle steamer The Waverley. You can join The Waverley from the village of Tighnbruaich, taking you round the coast and up Loch Fyne to Tarbert. Or board the local boat 'Morag' for a personal tour of the area keeping an eye out for the seals, dolphins and birdlife.

The area offers miles and miles of safe and spectacular walks including the first part of The Cowal Way, which is a long distance walk broken down into sections with the first section starting at nearby Portavadie. The roads are quiet and perfect to explore the area in your own time by bike.

Should you wish to not cook, there are many fine places to eat out only a short drive away in the nearby villages of Tighnabruaich and Kames, or slightly further up the scenic coastal route is the popular Inver Cottage restaurant that offers both delicious food and stunning scenery overlooking the bay to the ruins of Old Castle Lachlan.

Deer stalking with the local gamekeeper can be arranged prior to your arrival and there is the opportunity to fish in the river that runs by the house or there are lochs close by that require a permit. There is fishing equipment and accessories stored in the house.

Notes:
Acharossan is located on a working farm (cattle and sheep only) and depending on the time of year you visit there can be lots of activities happening for you to see or experience. Watch the farmer shear his sheep in the summer, count the lambs that appear and bounce around the fields in the Spring, relax and watch the cows graze away their day in the fields. We do ask that all dogs are kept under control at all times and not allowed to wander, for their safety and the farm animals.
