Fraser Cottage is one of the Dunmore Cottages on 120 acres of peace and tranquillity on the shores of West Loch Tarbert in South Knapdale, just seven miles from the fishing village of Tarbert on Loch Fyne.
The new owners purchased Dunmore House and Cottages in 2015/16 which sits on a beautiful estate with stunning views over West Loch Tarbert. They have an exciting vision for Dunmore over the coming years, which includes the full renovation of the self-catering cottages. Their aim is to create a fabulous destination on the West Coast of Scotland providing excellent facilities with a homely feel.
The good news is that they have already commenced the renovation of the cottages and the renovation of Fraser Cottage was completed in December 2018. Fraser Cottage is a luxury traditional 2 storey stone cottage. The Cottage comprises two ensuite bedrooms on the 1st floor with showers and underfloor warming in the en-suites. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the other bedroom two single beds. Downstairs the kitchen and dining area are fully equipped to the highest standard including dishwasher and Nespresso coffee machine.
The living room has a wood burning stove to provide a lovely cosy feel and a 4k curved screen TV. Patio doors lead out into the garden where you can catch the morning sun and watch, through the trees, the ferry sail by to the island of Islay several times a day.
The estate is named after the Bronze age fort which tops the spectacular cliffs above the house. These cliffs afford breathtaking views of the West Loch and out to the islands of Gigha and to Islay, famous for its whisky making.
Dunmore Cottages are a perfect vacation retreat either to relax by the open wood fires or enjoy the many outdoor activities that are available. Located on the shores of West Loch Tarbert, and only 7 miles from the picturesque fishing village of Tarbert, guests can enjoy the many hiking trails, and abundant wildlife, take a trip to the nearby Loch Stornoway sandy beach or further afield to the lovely 6 mile long Westport beach, sample the excellent area restaurants (the award winning Kilberry Inn is only 8 miles away), visit the inner Hebridean Islands of Islay and Jura, whisky tasting at the numerous distilleries, visit the historic Kilmartin Glen, walk the beautiful gardens on the Isle of Gigha or Brodick Castle on the Island of Arran.
Tarbert sports a 9-hole golf course. Horseback riding and fishing are also available locally.
Dunmore self catering cottages are very popular for family get togethers and are ideal for children with a large play area.
