About the property

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 with a full upgrade of the upstairs of Fraser Cottage providing two bedrooms with luxury ensuite bathrooms sporting walk-in showers and underfloor warming. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the other bedroom two single beds.

The full upgrade of the downstairs is scheduled for the end of 2018 but all furnishings have been replaced and there is a new wood burning stove to provide a lovely cosy feel in the living area 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. There is a well equipped kitchen/dining area.

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, 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 together's and are ideal for children with a large play area.

Dogs are welcome in Fraser Cottage. Ross Cottage is dog free.

The cottages are available year round Saturday to Saturday and in the off season our Short Breaks of three nights are available with an all inclusive price of accommodation, linen, electricity and logs for the fire.

Relaxing holiday in Dunmore cottages!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Fraser cottage for 4 nights and it was superb. The cottage has 2 spacious brand new bedrooms and the downstairs has a nice living room with wood burning stove. The surrounding area is stunning to explore and Tarbert has a good selection restaurants, particularly Starfish. The ferry terminal to Islay is about a 20 min drive from the cottage and is an excellent day trip. Same with Arran ferry, about 30 mins away.

Kilberry Inn (10 min drive from the cottage) is a must for a special meal!

It is very peaceful at Dunmore and is perfect for a relaxing holiday or break.

We will be back in the future for sure!

The property was much roomier and more comfortable than it appears on the website..

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location and peaceful surroundings very much indeed. The planned new kitchen and hopefully WiFi will create 5 star accommodation.

Local maps and books of walks would have been appreciated but otherwise everything was great.

Thank you.
