Auchgoyle Bay Cottage

Certificate of Excellence
1 of 38
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Inveraray, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
Auchgoyle Bay Cottage is the perfect base to explore Argyll – the Coast of the Gaels. The cottage is in the small village of Minard, just south of Inveraray and has direct views across the ever-changing panorama of Loch Fyne.

There are walks to suit all abilities from the cottage, along the shore, round the village and up into the hills to the deserted Feorlin village or a short walk away at the National Trust gardens at Crarae. The loch shore is 100 metres away, where you can launch small boats and kayaks.

Inveraray and Lochgilphead offer a range of facilities including restaurants, shops and other tourist attractions. Both are a short drive away. You can explore further afield if you wish with Oban and Kintyre within easy reach, but just as easily spend a week within a few miles of the cottage and do something different every day.

Interaction with guests
We live next door to the cottage and aim to be there when you arrive. If we are unable to meet you we leave a key in a key safe. We are happy to provide suggestions for things to see and do and spend time talking to guests, if that is what they are keen to do. If guests prefer privacy we will respect that with only a brief check to ensure that everything matches expectations.

We have enjoyed our second stay at Auchgoyle Bay Cottage and it was just as good as we remembered. The cottage is really well equipped and you really do not want for anything as Brian and Becs have thought of everything, their attention to detail...More
